Why Charlie Sheen Didn't Get Full Custody

4/20/2011 10:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The judge in the Charlie Sheen/Brooke Mueller custody war did not award Charlie full custody because of Charlie's checkered past.

Sources familiar with the case tell TMZ ... Judge Hank Goldberg was well aware Brooke had relapsed into drug use, but the judge was equally disturbed by Charlie's substance abuse and the fact that he bragged about it.

TMZ broke the story ... the judge denied Charlie's request to strip Brooke of custody and award him full legal and physical custody of twins Bob and Max.  Judge Goldberg kept the status quo, ruling the custody agreement Charlie and Brooke struck last month will remain in effect.

Judge Goldberg also felt Charlie's parenting skills -- or lack thereof -- did not warrant a change.  And, we're told, Brooke's lawyers raised issues of prior domestic violence on Charlie's part, though there were no fresh allegations.

In the end, sources say Judge Goldberg felt both Brooke and Charlie had problems, but the twins were adequately protected by the nannies, relatives and other support staff.

One final thing.  We're told Judge Goldberg did not hold the fact that Charlie brought his goddess to court against him.

Charlie's 20 or more years of admitted excessive drug-use is affecting him regardless of a clean current drug test!

It was only a few weeks ago when he almost OD'd with a case full of coke and hookers!


They're both unfit!

Judge was right..... keep things as they are, neither one of them is spending any time with the boys except for occasional publicity shots. With any luck the both of them will crash and burn and grandma will raise them.

Judge in my opinion did the right thing, even though I think brooke is no better since she was married to him and practicing his lifestyle with prostitutes and drugs, she is the less of two evils and the kids are not with her but with her parents and nanny rather than with him and his std s infected porn loving prostitutes.

I think there is an irrational court bias against men in custody battles, because of the assumption the mother is always better for the kids. In this case it's not clear-cut though. Especially taking into account things like nannies and otherwise stable grandparents etc. I've met social workers socially and their reference point for dysfunctional is a bit broader than most people because of they often deal with far worse cases, children unwashed/malnourished and basically left to their own devices. Sheen/Mueller are probably quite far down the list because they can afford to pay for support/have sane relatives.

Friend?    

Why order Charlie and Brooke to do drug drugtests when the testresults means nothing when Brooke fails? Do the tests only count if Charlie fails? Logical? I think not!

That's a load of crap. Why didn't he look at Brooke's past and her criminal record?
Typical biased decision.

Excatly they both dont realy care about the kids otherwise they would leave drugs. This is all money game play. Its all about the 55 k a month he is paying her. Mark my words.

So he needs to pay 2 hookers each 40-60...... k a month
2 ex wifes each 50-60...... k a month
Agent, assistant, bodyguards, housekeepers, etc 250 k month
So in total he needs like 400 k a month to cover his ass.
He will go broke after his tour. Mark my words.

Well, call me irrational but if it had to be one of them I think brooke is at least relatively stable, but yeah as the judge said neither are really caring for them.
