Charlie, Denise and Brooke

Children Services Tries to Mediate Custody WAR

11/7/2013 9:21 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Brooke Mueller and Denise Richards are locked in a conference room right now ... as officials from the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services try to force a truce in their war over Bob and Max ... but Charlie Sheen was a no-show.

Sources connected with the warring families tell TMZ -- Dr. Charles Sophy, the Medical Director for DCFS -- called the meeting and wants Denise, Brooke and Charlie to come face-to-face to deal with what has become a child-rearing crisis.

You may remember Dr. Sophy -- he's a highly-respected shrink who was a key player in the Michael Jackson molestation trial in 2005. 

We're told Charlie was invited but didn't attend -- we don't know why.

The goal of the meeting -- to figure out a custody arrangement that keeps Denise in the picture and gives Brooke sufficient parental rights.

As we first reported ... Denise feels that she can't continue on as the temporary guardian of the troubled twins with Brooke constantly blocking her ability to seek treatment for some serious psychological problems the twins are experiencing.

Probably a good thing Charlie did not show.

By blocking mental healthcare is no different than stopping a dr from giving treatment for regular health issues. She should be charged with negligence. She needs to be removed from the picture. I think she's hiding something and is afraid the boys will talk about the crap they've witnessed.

Charlie was wiring a grenade to Brooke's car, eh? First the cake, then the car...

The first order of business should be to issue a gag order to prevent ANYBODY from discussing this custody war... not Brooke, not Charlie & not even Denise who is very likely being encouraged by Charlie to support HIS version of events.

No interviews or Tweets or other means of discussing this online about this game these 2 pathetic & immature parents are playing!

Anyone who ignores this gag order should be prosecuted & punished immediately! And the media should also be prevented from commenting on this sad case citing the usual 'sources' to help any party from evading the gag order!

This is not some kind of media event, this concerns the welfare of innocent children who are stuck with 2 mentally ill, addicted & selfish parents.

TMZ obvi doesn't pay attention to their own reporting.

Charlie didn't show because, as you just reported, Brooke's restraining order against him was just reinstated requiring him to stay 200 yards away and avoid and prohibiting him from contacting Brooke.

Duh, TMZ!!!

Sources connected with the case tell TMZ ... the judge issued a temporary restraining order against Charlie.

So Charlie, seems the twins inherited your "Tiger Blood"! The boys are BRATS! You don't EVEN show for the hearing? Do you still think you are "winning?"
Why not hire one of your "goddesses" as a nanny!!!

For all his rants, this shows how he truly cares about those kids. When it came to showing by actions rather than yapping his trap, he failed to help those children. He doesn't give a F about those kids.

Charlie cares depending on what he did the night before and what time he got up/came to.

Charlie not showing for this critical meeting with a person of Dr. Sophy's reputation? Shows Charlie's TRUE level of concern - nil. Too hung-over, same old Charlie Sheen. Another press conference tomorrow at 3 p.m. when he comes to. To attack Brooke. Or throw someone off of his t.v. show.

The twins inherited "tiger blood"! Charlie doesn't EVEN show up for this VERY important meeting!
Not exactly "winning" behavior! Why don't you just hire one of your "goddesses" as a nanny!!!

Wouldn't it make sense that he isn't there because he was just yesterday ordered to stay 200 feet away from Brooke?

Poor frightened charlie too intimidated to show up for a meeting run by Dr. Sophy. A meeting that was basically called by Charlie. Now everyone knows why Charlie's got no cred with Children's Services. -...They know he's full of it - a lot of wind. All blown out from the week before.

my 2 cents    

Dr. Sophy also appeared on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills - counseling Taylor and Russell Armstrong.
