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.

IF the courts do their job, and IF there are qualified professionals actually evaluating both of these people, they need to determine whether either of them have the ability to be parents to the minor children. At face value, no one is looking too good. Seriously - all those immature posters about who's on which 'side' - the side you should be on is that of these children. They deserve a normal home life, with normal parents. Can they get that with either of them? That's the question.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Neither one deserves custody. Not for a long time. They're too busy playing games and are both mentally unstable. Unfortunately, the grandparents on both sides, who should be enjoying life without the bs of child-rearing, are going to have to step up to the plate.

She's using and he's passing his tests. I say Charlie should definitely take the kids. I'm not up for this "leave them where they are with Brooke's mom so they are not disrupted" crap. As long as they are with Brooke they are living in a crack house. Period. You really think her enabler mother would keep her from them or not let her take them whenever she wants?

I agree with ksis. You're right on the money.

Why give the children to the Grandparents? They didn't do so well when the raised Brooke or Charlie. Being able to be a Biological donor doesn't Qualify one to be a parent.

You are boring. Can't you see that no one gives a damn about you and your insults? LOL Least of all me. Just thought I'd let you know. And you're pretty repetitive too. Think of some new lines;)

Those kids don't have a snowball's chance in hell with these two as parents! CPS needs to remove those children and put them with some normal people, people who are no where near show business! They are both whack jobs.

okay    

If Brookes parents have been a consistent factor in these kids lives, then they should be allowed to be a part of the boys lives...I don't think it is "crap" that they have been a consistent presence in the boys lives...MAYBE there should be some kind of joint custody with Brooke having supervised visitation for now. In a couple weeks Charlie won't be doing anything else anyway so the boys should spend time with him as long as he calms his crazy a** down.

@okay.. sure they can be part of their lives.. probably a damn good thing they have been. The issue is she they be given custody of the kids? Unless both parents are found unfit (and as much as some would like they have not lost their parental rights at this point) then custody should go to one of the parents. Obviously the courts know of the issues/behaviors of both involved hence the agreed requirements of testing, Charlie's girls not acting as caregivers ect. But at this point all we know is that one parent is not following that agreement and is back on drugs... and one is not. I doubt Charlie would get full custody without some serious stipulations but I also feel that Brook after just having a weekend bender and running off to rehab has no right to ask for full custody for herself as if it was Charlie that messed up.

NEITHER of them deserve to be with the children. these poor boys need stability in their lives. denise richards is a good candidate to take custody. they are half siblings to her girls. bob geldof has custody of tiger lily (both her parents are deceased.) someone needs to step in.....charlie will fall off the wagon after he has custody and it will go on and on. i hope the judge denies both of them.
-------------------------------------------

When are you people going to stop the crap about Denise talking them. For one thing Denise is not related to those boys, not even a step mother, just because they are half sibs to the girls, doesnt mean Denise has any right to them. If Denise wants to look after them then she would have to fight Charlie and Brooke and I dont think Denise wants to get involved in Charlie's chit again, she is afraid of him. He has been making threats to her on stage (and yes KSIS its been noted, which you will say is a lie anyway)in front off a few hundred peeps and press...she felt the need to step up her security. Leave the poor woman alone in this.

I mean I know charlies acting crazy but im sure some of the stuff he does need's to be taken with a grain of salt I mean controversy sales I mean if charlie was being mr.rogger on stage no one would go see the show or talk about it I mean he lost a couple mil on this season of 2 and a half man so idk if you can judge everything he's been doing on how he really acts with his kids.

Well, as far as ksis is concerned, she doesn't believe anything Charlie says on stage. That's all part of his "act," and the only things one can believe is whatever he's said offstage. In other words, he doesn't really want his job back, and he's not really bad-mouthing the kids' mothers.

Soooo... Charlie's whole stage show is all made up, and the only things one can believe, for sure, are those statements he makes off stage. At least, that's what ksis told me on another thread.
;D

Another case of too many dollars and not enough "sense".
Give celebrities money and it goes right up their noses.
They have control issues, i.e. no "self" or "birth".
