Charlie Sheen

Officials Take Kids Away

From Brooke Mueller

0503_mueller_kids_denise_richards_tmzCharlie Sheen's twin boys were REMOVED from the home of their mother Brooke Mueller last night -- after officials decided her house was an "unsafe environment" for children.

Sources close to the situation tell TMZ ... officials from the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services arrived to Brooke's home Thursday with a warrant -- and took 4-year-old Bob and Max out of the house.

We're told the children are now in the care of Denise Richards -- the mother of Sheen's 2 young daughters.

Sources tell us ... officials determined Brooke's home was unsafe because they suspected she was using drugs again -- something she's been struggling with for years -- and they believed the children were in danger.

We're told a court hearing has been set for next week -- in the hopes of finding a more permanent solution regarding where the children should live.

It's unclear why Charlie was not given temporary custody of the kids -- but let's get serious, even Sheen knows they're in better hands with Denise.

Denise is one cool lady to step up and take of those kids. Who knew Denise would end up being the best parent out of all those freaks. I'm proud of her.

Good for Denise. Stepping up for those babies when no one else well. She is a better mom to them than their own mother.

So my question is how many times is Denise going to take in the twins before everyone involved sees that they are better off staying with her for the long term.

Denise is an Angel - that's very very nice of her, not a lot of women would take care of their ex husbands children and want to deal with all the drama.

Why do the authorities allow Denise Richards to step in? Don't the kids have 'natural' grandparents to go to? I think Denise is still obsessed with Charlie.

Denise will take care of those kids like they are her own. Brook, Charlie, and those kids are lucky to have her. I'm just concerned for Denise. She is so thin of late, and two more especially 4 year olds to run after is really going to burn up the calories. Hope Denise takes care if herself.

What a great example she is giving to her girls! Her actions show her daughters the importance of Family in life. As well as the importance of compassion. My heart goes out to all children who have drug/alcohol-addicted parents.

I never thought that much of Denise Richards until all of this custody stuff started. I have to respect her for taking these children in...more than once. Good for her.

SERIOUSLY    

You know KUDO's to Denise....those poor kids have no idea what the heck is going on.....it is a shame that their mom is all strung out on drugs....at lease Denise will take care of them and they can now be with their sisters!!! Perhaps Denise needs to try and permanently get the boys! I think this is an AWESOME thing she is doing....You go girl!!!! Charlie should consider himself very lucky.....and probably should not have let that one go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Denise is being a good mother-these are her children's brothers after all..but where will they be raised is the question.

I bet Denise Richards is getting really tired of Brooke's sh_t. She's the one they dump the kids on every time Brooke f_cks up (which is a lot). My biggest question is, why do they keep giving the twins back to Brooke when she's clearly unstable? She never stays sober for more than a few months and all the drama can't be good for the kids. Wait till she's been on the straight and narrow for at least a year or two and then try giving her her kids back.
