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.

The whole country knows she needs the children to get the money to feed her drug habit. Wake up Charlie if she cared about those kids she never would have been on meth while she was carrying them. She is a low life and those kids are so much better off without her around. She will never change. Charlie stop feeding her habit. One day she will OD and that will be the end of the mess. 20 times in rehab...come on she will never stop.Pure trash.

Technically Brooke's kids are Denise's kids step brothers. Charlie and a lot of the world owe her a huge apology when she left Charlie people spoke trash about her including Charlie , but she has really stepped up to try to help those kids, she is by far a better influence for those kids then their parents l think Charlie knows Denise will provide them with stability and Brooke is a junkie wanting a free meal ticket

Why doesn't Charlie ever take the kids? He IS their father. He's always got someone cleaning up after him, too. (Denise is the best thing that ever happened to him.)

C-l-a-s-s-i-c example of Charlie thinking with his d**k. Brooke goes on and proves some birth control should be insisted upon, especially for people like Brook,....come on Charlie,....you obviously didn't see her coming,.....stpid,stupid,stupid; should have stuck to hookers. Poor Denise, trying to keep Charlie's boys protected,...as well as her own I might add.

Either Charlie is a slow learner or just smoked one too many bal ls. Broke has never had anything BUT Charlie. She knew how he was when she married him. (as He left Denise beating her) then you reproduce...I am happy Denise is the only rational on in the bunch, the one with all the kids. I bet She cleans up well while she has them...with child support of course.

First off, kudos to the cop that called CPS on Brooke- with the kids in the house. second Kudos goes to Denise for stepping up and taking the kids on short notice (a phone call) and Charlie will always pay someone to get him out of the jam. Yes he is the father but too busy making out with Porn starletts.
