Brooke Mueller

She May Not Get Twins

For a Year

6/22/2013 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0621-brooke-mueller-bob-max-gettyBrooke Mueller thinks she's going to get her kids back when she leaves rehab, but according to sources connected to the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services ... she may not get the kids back for at least a year.

Brooke has been in rehab around 20 times ... in other words, it never sticks -- at least not so far.  Our Brooke sources are confident the judge will return twins Bob and Max to her when she exits rehab, and her family is willing to do what it takes to reassure the court that the kids will be fine.  If that means a family member living with Brooke ... we're told that will be offered.

But other sources tell TMZ ... DCFS feels it's too risky to return the kids to Brooke until there's proof she can function clean and sober over a period of time, and we're told that time frame is a year, and possibly longer.  Our sources add ... DCFS will allow meaningful visitation between Brooke and the kids, but not custody until there's proof she's on the straight and narrow.

Finally, we're told this has nothing to do with Charlie Sheen.  On this one ... DCFS is calling the shots.

So this confirms that the chilsren are dependents of the state, and placed with Denise. By six months, Brooke will need to show substantial progress toward meeting specific goals. If so, she can get up to 18 months to complete her goals. If not, DCFS will petition the court to terminate parental rights. If the judge agrees, a permanent placement plan will be developed for the children.

Brooke Mueller has proven to be a complete junkie and gold-digging POS. I hope she NEVER gets those poor kids back!

Well it's about time! She should not get the kids back for at least a year of regular and frequent drug testing. She should get the kids back ONLY if she tests negative for drugs for a full year AND if she is prescribed methadone or suboxone, replacement drugs that replace one addiction with another, she should never get custody back. Addicts who raise children DO NOT make good parents and children raised by addicts develop a multitude of problems themselves.

I'm surprised she hasn't traded the kids for crack yet.

Why would any court care if some enabling relative lives with her? Been there, done that

I think it it too late for her to raise her kids. She chooses the drugs. The kids dont.

Brooke has had her mother living with her before when she was released from rehab to help take care of the kids and that still didn't stop her from getting a hold of her drugs. It's obvious she cares more about her next fix than she does her kids.

For the sake and well being of those kids, I hope they put their foot down. Best interest of the child NOT the druggie!

Without the $55,000/month child support, how's this little princess going to pay for her drugs? Oh the irony.

I think it's pretty pathetic that the kids' father is unwilling to take care of his own children.

This goon is not fit to take care of a plant let alone children. Let Steven Seagal karate chop her in the throat and move one.

I never understood why they ever returned the kids to her before she proved she was truly clean & sober.
