Charlie Sheen just dodged another bullet -- the judge in his guardianship case decided NOT to hold him in contempt for yapping on TMZ Live.
Charlie violated the gag order the judge imposed by railing on Brooke Mueller, the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services and the judge himself, calling him "dishonorable judge douchebag."
But we've learned there was a private hearing today where Brooke said she had no interest in pushing the issue so the judge gave Charlie a pass,
And more good news for Charlie. The judge said he was going to grant Sheen 2, 2-hour monitored visitations with twins Bob and Max, and assuming DCFS gives him good reviews, Charlie will incrementally get his custody restored to 50/50.
We got video of Brooke as she was leaving court. She was mum on everything.

Michael Jordan is on his way to creating a basketball team of his own ... TMZ Sports has learned he's having IDENTICAL twin girls.
Michael's wife, Yvette Prieto, is pregnant, though we don't know how far along. They were married in April.

The people we've been speaking with in Jordan's world are being super secretive/scared stiff. But we're told so far ... the pregnancy is progressing just fine.
Charlie to Denise
Get Ready for a
HUGE PAY CUT!
12/17/2013 7:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Charlie Sheen vows to hit Denise Richards where it really hurts -- in the child support department, because he says he's going to court to get a judge to slash the amount she gets.
Charlie is telling friends ... a judge has NEVER signed off on his current child support agreement with Denise -- it was all agreed to privately.
Denise currently gets $55,000 a month in support for their 2 kids. He's enraged that he's been so generous, and not just with child support. Charlie says he shelled out $9 million for the home he bought for her -- specifically so their 2 girls could be close to him.
So Charlie is telling his buddies ... Denise is epically ungrateful because he says she's denying him the right to have XMAS morning with the girls. He says she's actually taken away the girls' phones so they can't call him.
So Charlie's going to court. Not only does he want child support reduced, he wants the judge to establish his iron-clad right to see his kids on specific holidays.

Paul Walker's family -- and Tyrese -- said their final goodbye to the actor on a Santa Barbara beach.
Paul's dad, his 15-year-old daughter Meadow, Paul's brother and others were there celebrating Paul's life by enjoying a beautiful SoCal day -- playing football on the sand and hanging out.
Tyrese -- who co-starred with Walker in the "Fast & Furious" franchise -- was also present.
A bunch of people wore Viking hats -- not sure of the significance.
Santa Barbara was an appropriate place for the memorial. Paul made Santa Barbara home -- he wasn't really a Hollywood guy.
Denise Richards RUINED Christmas
12/16/2013 6:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Denise Richards is the Grinch who stole Christmas ... at least according to Charlie Sheen -- who's pissed at his ex-wife for pulling the plug on his holiday plans with their daughters.
Sources close to Sheen tell TMZ Denise informed Charlie this weekend she didn't want him to join her, Sam, and Lola on their family Christmas trip -- and didn't really explain why.
We're told the news sent Charlie into a tailspin since he's already not seeing twins Bob and Max this year for Christmas -- they'll be with temp guardian/Brooke Mueller's brother Scott.
Sheen lashed out at Denise by tweeting a pic of a chopped up baseball bat -- a souvenir from their wedding -- with the caption, "The lie is over. I'm done being treated like a relative with a one-way ticket. #DuhNeese."
Our sources say Denise is confused about Charlie's anger -- because as far as she's concerned ... he's still welcome to join her and the girls on the trip.
Clearly, that's not Charlie's understanding of the situation.
It's unclear how there could be such a huge communication gap, but our guess ... we're talking about Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards.

Michael Clarke Duncan
Family Fight Over Unmarked Tomb
12/16/2013 5:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Michael Clarke Duncan's body lies in an unmarked cemetery tomb -- more than a year after his death -- because of a ridiculous squabble between his family and former fiancee, Omarosa Manigault ... TMZ has learned.
We're told the fight is over a bronze plaque for Duncan's vault at Forest Lawn Cemetery in L.A.
As of now there's no plaque at all -- it hasn't even been ordered -- even though it's already been paid for (it was included in MCD's funeral bill).
Sources close to Omarosa tell TMZ ... she had planned to order a plaque inscribed with MCD's name and the date of his birth and death ... but was blocked by his family because they wanted to handle it.
But friends of Duncan's family tell us the opposite is true ... Omarosa is the problem. They claim she identified herself as MCD's "wife" on the cemetery paperwork and promised to order the inscription ... but never did.
And neither side wants to talk to the other to work it out.
One family friend tells us the whole thing is outrageous and shameful ... especially since Michael's mother is 95 years old and in poor health ... and would like her son to finally rest in peace.

Wynonna Put a Tracking Device on My Car!
12/14/2013 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Wynonna Judd is being accused of attempting to secretly track her sister Ashley Judd's every move ... by placing a GPS tracking device on her car.
The incident was first reported to police back in November when Wynonna's daughter drove Ashley's car to a mechanic ... and asked them to check for a tracking device -- according to reports.
The GPS device was located ... so they reported it to police -- and an investigation was launched to figure out who put it there.
According to the police report ... when cops contacted Ashley asking if she had any idea who placed the device on her ride -- Ashley pointed the finger at Wynonna.
Detectives tried in vain to reach Wynonna ... so they contacted the P.I. to whom the device was registered -- but they got the cold shoulder.
Wynonna's lawyer eventually called police -- and said the whole thing was a misunderstanding ... the singer was just trying to track her daughter whom she knew had been driving the vehicle.
Wow ... families used to bow their heads and pray ... now they spy on each other.
I DID Pay Child Support
... Someone Set Me Up
12/13/2013 4:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
R. Kelly is not a child support dodging jerk ... so says R. Kelly AND his ex-wife Andrea Kelly -- and now the company who put him on blast for allegedly falling behind is backtracking.
Earlier today, The Custodial Support Foundation put out a press release saying "Hollywood Exes" star Andrea Kelly hired them to call out R. Kelly for falling behind on his child support -- but the singer's rep says their claim is BS ... and he's all paid up
Andrea's lawyer backs him up too ... telling TMZ his client says Kelly is up to date on his payments.
A rep for the C.S.F. tells us they're issuing a retraction to their story.
When a man pays up.
Mike Tyson's Wife
Alleged Mistress Is Threatening to Kill Me & Our Kids
12/13/2013 12:51 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
A crazy ex-military woman claiming to be Mike Tyson's mistress has been threatening to kill the boxing legend's wife and family ... this according to Tyson's wife Kiki ... and now, Kiki's obtained a temporary restraining order.
Kiki Tyson filed the request for the restraining order in L.A., claiming a woman named Mickey Gordon has sent her more than 60 threatening emails in the last two years ... and Kiki desperately fears for her and her family's safety.
Kiki attached the alleged emails from Gordon in her restraining order request, and they're pretty nuts. Here are a few excerpts ... and yes, the emails are all in caps:
-- YOUR FRIEND TOLD YOU ONE DAY ONE OF THESE WOMEN ARE GOING TO TAKE YOU DOWN & YOU ARE GOING TO REGRET IT, WELL I'M THAT BITCH!!!
-- YOU WILL PAY FOR THIS F**KING TWO YEARS OF TORTURE, I SWEAR YOU WILL ON YOUR MAMA & BABY GIRLS GRAVE YOU F**KING WILL!!!
-- I WAS STRONG WHEN WE MET 20 YRS AGO & NOW I'M STRONGER ... I WAS IN THE MILITARY, A DRILL SERGEANT IN THE WEAPONS FIELD, YOU KNOW WHAT THE F**K I'M ABOUT BITCH!!!
Kiki claims she's never met Mickey Gordon before, and has no idea how the woman obtained her contact information, but in one of her emails ... Gordon identifies herself as Kiki's "husband's mistress." She also calls herself "Kiki's nightmare."
Gordon has since been ordered to stay 100 yards away from Kiki, Mike, and their 2 children. Another hearing has been scheduled for next month to decide whether to make the TRO permanent.

In a Better Place

Good news dog lovers -- Amanda Bynes' canine (the one she accidentally soaked in gasoline back in July while setting a neighbor's driveway on fire) has been placed in a new home ... far, far away from Amanda and flammables.
Sources close to the Bynes family tell us, Sherbert was taken away from Amanda after she was placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold in the summer.
While she was in rehab, we're told Amanda's parents cared for Sherbert ... but have since given him away to a family friend because Sherbert didn't get along with the Bynes family's other dogs.
Sad for Amanda ... as we reported, the actress desperately loved the dog and begged to see Sherbert while she was getting inpatient treatment for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
Safe to say, lil Sherb survived some dark days -- here's that video of Amanda rushing to a nearby liquor store to clean him after the near-charring.
