Judge Hank Goldberg did not explain the nature of the abuse allegations, but made it clear the issues would be discussed and that's why he closed the courtroom.

TMZ broke the story ... Charlie and Brooke each want sole custody of twins Bob and Max.

He came to LA, didn't he? He could have left things the way they were or make his lawyer handle things on his own.
There was badmouthing, which Brooke actually deserved, but nothing was ever proven as far as threats go. Only Brooke's words, and the judge can see (I hope) how much those are worth.

It does amaze me that anyone would even hope that Charlie would get custody at this point. I certainly wouldn't want my children in his care.

The judge will determine what will be the most stable environment for the kids. At this point it doesn't look like either parent can provide that. So that's why I think Brooke's mom will get temporary custody with it being revisited down the road.

@Ksis- he came to L.A. and he left just as quickly. A truly concerned parent would have put their tour on hold and made sure the boys were ok.

As for the threats. Evidently the judge who issued the restraining order felt their was enough evidence to justify issuing it.

As far as badmouthing goes, no child should EVER hear their parent has talked that way about their other parent.

Face it, Chuckles is a drug abusing misogynist with a long (do***ented) history of abusing people.

that does make since and I agree with the most part of what your saying

ksis only the first part is to you
and I agree you with you to I think since he came all the way from the east coast it does show he cares to get his kid back
but if brookes parents keep custody I hope bob and max dont act like brooke when they grow up and they really need make brooke earn time with her kids and again stop ENABLING her that hurts the kids too

I don't understand how a father does not get custody over a grandparent. Charlie has abided by the custody agreement, Brooke did not. She retains physical custody? Custody reverts to her mother while she is in rehab? How can custody bypass a father unless he is deemed unfit? He may be a goofball and may be an addict. He, at least is maintaining sobriety whereas Brooke is not.

It was definitely not a winning day in court for Charlie Sheen on Tuesday.

The embattled former Two and a Half Men actor lost his fight against his estranged wife Brooke Mueller for full custody of their two-year-old twin sons, Max and Bob.

A judge in Los Angeles just allowed Mueller to maintain primary legal and physical custody despite a well-publicized relapse in her crack cocaine addiction.

Despite appearing "unsteady on her feet" and "glassy-eyed" Mueller was all smiles as she left the Stanley Mosk Courthouse.

"No comment," she told RadarOnline when asked if she was pleased with the decision.

A source says that while Mueller undergoes drug treatment at an undisclosed rehab facility, her mother, Palm Beach, Fla, socialite Moira Fiore, will provide primary care for the boys.

At least the judge understood that their Grandmother has been the ONLY steady caretaker for those children.

@Thinkingwoman

The man is an unstable psycho. That's how and why the grandparents got custody. He has a history of screwing up. It happens all the time.

we really dont know if he didnt check to see if his kids are ok and it would prob be better to not do the show tonight but I really doubt brooks parents are gonna let charlie see his kids they havent let him see them yet. so it's kind of a loose loose for him im sure brookes parents hate charlie as much as brooke does but they keep enabling their daughter

Like I said elsewhere...Says a lot about the system and how women are treated according to different rules than men. If Charlie relapsed, no one would ever allow him to come close to the kids again. It's disgusting.

I do agree with that if charlie god help him relapse then the custody agreement shouldnt change for him just because he relapsed. they should be treated as equals.
