Here’s a newsflash: Brooke Mueller is a junkie! Shocking, right? We kid, we kid. Anyone who would be shocked by that has been hiding under a rock for the past five years.
Apparently social workers with the L.A. County Department of Children and Family services have removed Brooke’s twins, Max and Bob, from her care. In fact, they decided that her home was not a safe environment for the kids because her ongoing “alleged” drug use. In a shocking twist, however, the boys have been placed temporarily with Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife, Denise Richards.
A source said, “Brooke was given many opportunities by social workers to clean up her act. Social workers felt that Bob and Max weren’t safe in Brooke’s care. The decision was made late on Thursday afternoon, and the boys are no longer in Brooke’s care. It’s expected at some point the boys will be taken care of by Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife, Denise Richards, who has cared for them in the past when Brooke went to rehab.”
This isn’t the first time that Denise has taken care of the boys. Last year, when Brooke high-tailed it to rehab, the boys went to stay with Denise. A source said at the time, “She loves the boys and their safety and well being mean everything to her. Bob and Max are safe and that is all that matters. Denise is simply complying with the court order.”
At the time, Denise said, “They’re our family and they’re Sam and Lola’s brothers, and I can’t imagine growing up without my sister, so anytime she needs help, I’m there for the boys. They are the best big sisters to them and they love them. I know it doesn’t seem normal, but it is our normal. They’re little kids and I love children, and like I said, it’s our daughter’s brothers, so I can’t say no.”
An insider revealed that Brooke is “in a very, very bad place right now. She is absolutely despondent that she lost the boys. Maybe this will finally make her realize that she needs to get help.”
Why doesn’t Charlie want to take custody of his children while Brooke gets help? We’re guessing that would interfere with his plot to take over the world of hookers and blow? Just a guess…
