Charlie Sheen

Brooke Wants Cash for Kids

... That's It

5/15/2013 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0514-denise-richards-charlie-sheen-brooke-muellerCharlie Sheen's legal team is headed for court this morning ... and he wants to expose what he believes is a crass ploy by ex-wife Brooke Mueller to make her brother the guardian of their kids so she can still get her hands on Charlie's gigantic child support checks.

As we previously reported ... Brooke is gunning to wrestle temporary custody away from Denise Richards, who has been caring for 4-year-old Bob and Max while Brooke tries to get it together at The Betty Ford Center.  Brooke wants her brother to get temporary custody until she's sober again. 

Charlie believes the almighty dollar is at the root of Brooke's ploy.  He claims Brooke will still have access to Charlie's $55,000 monthly child support check if her bro gets the kids, and that's why she wants Denise out of the picture.

What's more ... sources connected to the case tell TMZ ... Denise has written proof -- in the form of text messages -- in which Brooke makes it clear -- she wants and needs those monthly checks.

Sources say Brooke -- through her lawyer -- will counter that Denise is the one who is in it for the money, although our sources say Denise has not asked Charlie for a dime for taking Bob and Max.

We're told Charlie wants Denise to keep the twins until Brooke is sober and able to prove she'll stay that way.  Charlie realizes that could mean Denise could have the kids for a year ... and maybe longer.  Charlie will tell the judge he would gladly pay Denise support money for her efforts.

Seriously, rehab twice for crystal meth while pregnant. God help those little boys. They are only 4. I hope they don't have any effects from this down the road.


Mueller like Lohan won't clean up. They don't want to. That simple.

Wow! I wish all I had to do was stay sober for $55k a month and I wouldn't have to worry about mortgage, car payments, if I can even get my poor children any new clothes because they haven't had any in so long. I wish all I had to do was stay off crystal meth so I had the prove large if staying home with my children instead of worki g 2 jobs say and night to afford them a nice neighborhood and a good school with nothing extra. Brooke needs to pull herself together , be the mother her sons deserve and stop worrying about losing her drug money. What a waste. There are greet mothers out there that would be incredibly grateful to be afforded that lifestyle to stay home with and provide for their children. She seems very entird and ungrateful. I wish I had that opportunity. I cettaiy wouldn't be a method addict . I'd be the best damn mother that led the face of the earth and a very appreciative r. Wife!

Denise is doing a great job. Even the judge said the boys are flourishing with Denise and are doing wonderful and he see's no reason to change that.


Denise has always been there to take the boys when this shyt happens. Sheen also knows with his lifestyle the boys are better off with her.


Any Mueller family member she gets the money for her drugs. Hell 55k per month child support. Of course they 'want' the boys.

Charlie should pay Brooke money to stay far away from those kids. All she wants is money and drugs anyways.

She's been to rehab 20 times. She's demonstrated that she can't stay clean. It's completely irresponsible that they keep giving her kids back when she is clearly unfit.

I may be going out on a limb here but WHY doesn't Charlie rearrange his life to take care of his own children - he'd rather pay someone to take care of them instead of stepping up to the plate - if the judge had any sense he'd strip them all of their rights and give the kids to parents who give a damn!

IMO    

those boys have been through enough. outside of seeing ritchie sambora while he was married to heather and she was married to charlie, from all accounts she has always put her kids first. do not know about the brother-in-law but with an responsibility denying, enabling mother-in-law, he would be suspect. it's not right, i know, but these are two defenseless 4 year olds tossed in the middle of an adult F U B A R.
