Charlie Sheen Moves for Full Custody of Twins

4/18/2011 2:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen is declaring legal war on Brooke Mueller and will not only ask a judge for full custody of their twins, he wants to cut off the child support he's paying her.

TMZ has learned ... Charlie's lawyer, Mark Gross, just gave Brooke Mueller's attorneys notice -- he's going to court tomorrow in an attempt to change the custody arrangement.

Gross will ask the judge to strip Brooke of both legal and physical custody, on grounds she has relapsed and went back into rehab.

And, if the judge does give Charlie full custody, Gross wants the judge to terminate Charlie's obligation to pay Brooke $55,000 a month in child support -- since she would no longer be incurring those expenses.

We've also learned Brooke's lawyers are planning their own offensive, asking the judge for full custody.  And, Brooke's lawyers want Charlie to be psychologically evaluated.

The court should absolutely take all those statements into consideration. Charlie himself said this tour was the torpedo of TRUTH. He claimed many times that he wasn't up on stage to do anything less than tell the truth about his lifestyle. He actually ENDANGERED brooke and denise by allowing a drunk mob to chant f*ck Denise F*ck Brooke. He set in motion a reason for both to fear for their lifes. It was reckless of Charlie to lead the audience in such chants knowing that some in the audience are drug addicts themselves and unpredictable as a result.

For ksis to state that the courts favor women over men in custody, this was true years and years ago, it is not true now for joint custody cases. If the court sees two healthy people before it, it will give joint custody. Courts only give sole custody to a parent when it is obvious that the other parent is incapable or unwilling to act in the best interest of the children and when the non custodial parent blatantly shows the inability to provide a safe healthy environment they don't get custody.

Are you kidding me. What makes Brooke think that she has any chance at winning this. I'm not saying that Charlie should get full custody. But lets look at this. Brooke has been "MIA", she is seen acting antsy while waiting to pawn her stuff, she refuses to take a drug test, and then checks into a treatment facility. Are you serious? What about that makes anyone think she is fit to have full custody of kids? I mean, I'm sure she's jsut doing this in responce to Charile's request to get full custody, but come on. Are you freaking serious. No judge would even take more that two seconds to consider this. And the only reason she check herself into rehab was probably becuase her lawyers advised her to do so. It's not like she made the decision on her own becuase she looked at herself in the mirrior and said, "I need help"....This story disgust me.....I don't what either one of these people are like for real, you can only judge by what you see on tv and this site, but there is enough evidence here to show that Brook is an unfit mother. If Charlie truely is clean, then he deserves FULL custody as long as he stays clean....As a recovering addict myself, I do have some small sympathy for Brooke, and one she gets her **** together and comes up with a recovery plan, and activley sticks to it, then she doesn't deserve anything more than scheduled/supervised visitation. When she gets her **** together, then she can have weekend visitatons. As times goes, then I think you can work back towards shared custody.....For anyone that is reading this, thank you for letting me rant. I just get sick or these unfit parents having kids. I feel bad for the kids more than anything, as much as you can feel bad for a "trust-fund baby".

Yes they will give 'joint custody' however that usually means physical custody to the mother with the father getting visitation and paying child support. Sorry but that is the truth today not just years ago. Talk to some divorced Dad's. At least Charlie's been paying his child support, $55,000 a month while mommy's been doing eight balls. Again not saying Charlie will or should get sole custody but it's Brook who messed up at this point, Charlie has been abiding by the court agreement (so far as we know)

@Sonja,

I would like to respectfully say to you that whether or not judges side with women was not my issue here. My issue is that ksis is using that argument to argue why charlie was not given custody and anyone with any real objectivity can see that the judge did have very good cause for concern and that is why the boys were taken away. Just as the judge in this new Brooke issue has very good cause to be concerned. Charlie has continually made nasty comments about Denise on tour and even though every expert in the world will tell you that divorced parents should never speak negatively about the other parent, ksis once again just makes excuses for charlie so I decided to call her out on her excuses and tried to apply some actual facts

WOW, you are dead on 100% correct here. I guess the question becomes does any of what you just stated actually end up being used in the courts because you make fantastic points. Unfortunately, there are a few posters here that will ignore those points and come back with vague deflections of the actual points.

Physical custody goes to the parent that can provide the most parenting time in two healthy parents custody fight. Meaning that if the parent that has a job that requires less hours away from the child that child will go to that parent in a two healthy parent situation. Generally women are under- employed and have more flexibility when it comes to time with the children. So if a Dad is a teacher and mom is an investment broker- dad will get custody because he can provide more parenting time with the child.

No matter what Charlie endangered Brooke and their children by leading thousands of people in a F*ck Brooke Chant. He also endangered them by blasting Brooke in front of a crowd of people that he knows nothing about. He is irresponsible.

As far as drug testing Charlie can easily get around it. Most Drug addicts know how. Trips to the dentist just before, eating poppy seed breads etc...

bbrown 5 minutes ago You cant take what charlies saying on stage so seriously I mean rap songs talking about killing people, doing and selling drugs,**** bitches and not all rappers are bad parents hes preforming on stage just like rapers preform of course he cant act like mr. rogers no one woud come so dont take what he's doing so seriously I mean so what if people are chanting **** brooke or den remember the **** the police song it's not like they where saying go kill cops I mean charlies not innocent at all but yall are taking things to seriously sometimes

The real point is parents who care about having good relationships with their kids should not speak negatively about the other parent. It's real simple, don't do that to your kids especially Denise who has done nothing to charlie that he hasn't deserved or brought on himself by his lifestyle.

Do you remember the fan that came onto charlie's property...he wasn't real stable. He was a fan and he was believeing all of charlie's hype and wanted to get near his idol so who is to say some other nut isn't in the audience and wants get near charlie and make charlie happy and so he decides to go after Brooke or Denise, this kind of stuff has happened in the past and besides that I am not 100% positive but I seriously doubt that a record label would let a rapper put a song out that publicly defamed and said nasty things about the rappers ex...the rapper might be able to get away with it by making it an indirect swipe but not as specifically as charlie has done.

Controversy sales? Wait most people are selling their tickets, and staying away from the tour because of his irrational rants and behavior. So leading chants against his x women is obviously not being done to sell tickets. TICKETS aren't selling.

@bb

you make some good points but I guess my point is that what charlie is doing and saying against the exes out in public can definitely hurt his chances in court so then why take that chance. If you really love and care about your kids then you do whatever you have to in order to be in their lives and you don't go about that by slamming their mothers.
