Charlie Sheen

Surrenders Custody

of Sam & Lola

5/5/2010 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Charlie Sheen has surrendered legal custody of the two kids he had with Denise Richards.

Sources intimately familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... Charlie and Denise signed a written agreement in which Denise now has full legal custody of 6-year-old Sam and 4-year-old Lola.  Up to now Charlie and Denise had joint legal custody.

Sources say Denise wanted full legal custody given Charlie's current marital turmoil, sobriety issues and criminal problems ... and Charlie didn't put up a fight.

We're told the agreement was signed two weeks ago but the parties didn't want to file it with the court just yet.

Now that Denise has full legal custody ... she can make medical, schooling and other important decisions without getting Charlie's sign-off.  She can also leave the country with the kids without Charlie's permission.

Under their divorce agreement, Denise has primary physical custody and Charlie has visitation rights. 

We've learned Charlie has been paying Denise $50,000 a month in child support since their divorce -- and that amount has remained static.  As we first reported yesterday, according to Brooke Mueller's prenup with Charlie, she'll get $55,000 a month in child support plus add-ons -- like medical and schooling expenses -- and that could drive the monthly support upwards of $125,000.

Calls to attorneys for Charlie and Denise were not returned.

Charlie did a good enough job raising his other children, while going through similar stuff. Dissapointing, I just hope the kids don't lose contact with the Sheen family.

What an opportunistic bitch! >:(



Although there is zero doubt in my mind that Charlie loves his girls, he must to rue the day he ever found himself attracted to this homewrecker.



I bet she's salivating at the fact that she's getting all of this child support from him and can now do anything she wants with those children without having to okay it with their father first.



Maybe that extra child support will console her and replace her lost income, since she can't even sleep her way into an audition these days. You know you're Hollywood poison when even the "casting couch" won't take your appointment! (And no, straight-to-DVD is not a career.)



I hope the little girls will be able to stay in contact with Charlie's family and their older sister and younger brothers. This vindictive bitch will probably try to put the kibosh on that, too.



Sickening.

Child support is based on a parent's ability to pay and a child's needs. Sheen can clearly afford it.

well, Denise has no career to speak of, so she has to sponge off of someone... in this case, Charlie Sheen.... under the guise of child support.

No big deal. She now has full control over their children and doesn't have to have Charlie sign off on every little thing. It doesn't mean he is no longer their father. The child support payments are their business and their lifestyle.

This man threatened to kill Denise and Brooke. Which of you posters want your little children left with this man. I don't really like Denise but I think she's doing the right thing for her children.



Even Heidi Fleiss (the Hollywood Madam) tried to discourage Denise from marrying Charlie. I bet we don't know the half of what Charlie has done and the article did say he didn't even fight to keep custody. Good for Denise.
