Denise Richards has retained custody of Charlie Sheen's sons.
Lawyers met in court yesterday after the actor's ex-wife Brooke Mueller - who is currently being treated for drug problems at the Betty Ford clinic - requested her four-year-old twins Bob and Max be placed in the care of her brother, but the judge "flatly denied" her request.
"The judge flatly denied Brooke's request to to have Denise stripped of temporary custody, and placed in the care of her brother in Orange County. There was absolutely no reason that could justify the move, which would only uproot the twins yet again," a source said.
Brooke - who would have retained the $55,000-a-month child support she receives from ex-husband Charlie if her brother was caring for the boys - had alleged Denise had only agreed to take on the children for her own financial benefit, but the actress insisted she isn't interested in money.
"Greatest ex" Charlie Sheen flew Denise Richards home in a private jet so she could see her children.
The Wild Things actress was "bummed" to miss Mother's Day on Sunday as she was in New York City to film her TV show Twisted, but her former husband - with whom she shares two daughters, Sam, nine, and seven-year-old Lola - had his exclusive plane whisk her back to Los Angeles the same day so she could be with her kids.
"Quick 24 hr trip to NY to film an exterior scene for #twisted bummed to miss Mother's Day morning with the kids ... grampa Irv is in charge:) I've never had to work on Mom's day ... shooting exteriors for #Twisted #NY then home tonight! Made a stop at #FAO for toys for the kiddies."
After finishing her day's work, she later wrote, "Greatest ex @charliesheen my mom's day gift flying me home on his plane so I can take the kids to school. (sic)"
Denise Richards' temporary custody of Brooke Mueller's four-year-old twins has been extended.
The Twisted actress, 42, has been granted permission to keep the 35-year-old socialite's sons, Bob and Max - who were removed from Brooke's home on Thursday by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services when she was placed under an involuntary psychiatric hold in hospital - in her care for the moment, as Brooke undergoes treatment for "prescription drug abuse."
A source told gossip website TMZ.com that Denise and her ex-husband Charlie Sheen, who is the boys' father, put on a united front at an emergency court hearing on Tuesday morning where a judge poured over what sources say is a shocking report about the conditions in Brooke's home. The twins were also in court, along with Brooke's lawyers Lori Howe and Angela di Donato, and Charlie's lawyers Mark Gross and Elise Greenberg.
Denise Richards has been awarded temporary custody of Charlie Sheen's sons. The Wild Things actress - who has daughters Sam, nine, and Lola, seven, with the actor, as well as adopted Eloise, two - is to take on the care of twins Bob and Max, four, after social workers Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services removed them from the home of their mother Brooke Mueller because of allegations her drug use is jeopardizing their safety.
"Brooke was given many opportunities by social workers to clean up her act. Social workers felt that Bob and Max weren't safe in Brooke's care. The decision was made late on Thursday afternoon, and the boys are no longer in Brooke's care. It's expected at some point the boys will be taken care of by Charlie Sheen's ex-wife, Denise Richards, who has cared for them in the past when Brooke went to rehab. Denise loves the boys and their safety and well being mean everything to her. Bob and Max are safe and that is all the matters. Denise is simply complying with the court order," a source said.
Charlie Sheen wants to "mentor" Lindsay Lohan.
The Anger Management actor - who became close to the troubled actress on the set of the comedy Scary Movie 5 last year - believes he can save the actress from self-destructing because he has battled similar problems with addiction and legal issues in the past.
The 47-year-old star told gossip website TMZ.com, "I have a kinship with somebody [Lindsay] who clearly needs a mentor, whether she wants one or not. She can continue to hang out with her dress shredding club buddies, or turn to me for some advice from a guy who's been down the road as well as every other side trail on the journey. If she listens, she'll win. If she doesn't, that's on her."
Charlie Sheen donated $10,000 to a teenager for a therapy dog.
The Anger Management actor was moved by the plight of Teagan Marti, 15, who suffered brain, spine, pelvis and internal injuries in July 2010 when she plummeted 100 feet from a Wisconsin amusement park ride and chipped in to pay for the dog who will turn on lights, pick up objects and be her constant companion.
After a friend of the family contacted Charlie through his godfather, Charlie said, "I like to pay it forward. People come into your orbit for a reason. You don't always know what that is ahead of time, but if I ignore these requests then I don't have any opportunity to see where these things lead us, or lead me."
However, he does want some input on the Golden Retriever's name, and joked, "I think they should name the dog Charlie."
Charlie Sheen is paying for the funeral of the paparazzi photographer who died while following Justin Bieber's car.
The Anger Management star has paid a generous $12,000 towards 29-year-old Chris Guerra's burial costs after hearing through a photographer pal that his family was trying to raise funds for the service, due to be held on Friday.
"A tragic incident like this erases the line between the photographer and the subject. It's an unforgiving moment that begs us all to be human and work as one to prevent this in the future. As parents, we are all not supposed to bury our children. My deepest condolences to the families involved," the 47-year-old actor told TMZ.
The kind-hearted star was shocked by the news that Chris was struck by a car on New Year's Day while crossing a busy road in Los Angeles after trying to capture a shot of Canadian singer Justin's white Ferrari. Justin was not in the vehicle at the time, having lent it to two friends.
Charlie Sheen is reportedly dating porn star Georgia Jones.
The Anger Management star was spotted kissing the adult film actress - who has appeared in over 100 porn movies - at a party in Cabo San Lucas in Mexico on New Year's Eve. Charlie was in Mexico for the opening of his new bar in the plush El Ganzo hotel.
This is not the first time he has been linked to a porn star, in 2011 he shared his home and his bed with adult movie actress Bree Olsen and former nanny Natalie Kenley. Asked if the group had sex together, Bree said, "We do whatever Charlie wants us to. This is the type of lifestyle I've always wanted and I'm thrilled with it. It's an unconventional family. Charlie is the man with the ball and we're on either side looking out for him. All three of us are in a relationship, and if Charlie ever wants to go outside 'The Wedge' and act out on his sexual desires, that's fine with Natty and me. We're laid back."
Charlie Sheen is unhappy that Lindsay Lohan never thanked him for giving her a reported $100,000.
The Anger Management star generously helped out his Scary Movie 5 co-star when he heard she was having financial difficulties after not being paid for one of her projects but Charlie admitted he is unimpressed that the 26-year-old actress accepted money from him but didn't acknowledge it.
"She got shorted and I found out, so I said: 'Here.' I'm still waiting for a text to say 'Thank you.' Anything, you know?" he told Entertainment Tonight.
Meanwhile it has been revealed Lindsay is struggling to pay her rent and has been scraping together all the money she can in order to pay $8,000 per month for her Beverly Hills mansion in Los Angeles. Lindsay signed the contract for the luxury home in February, when it was believed her career was getting back on track and she was earning more money, but a source has revealed that once her finances hit trouble she resorted to calling on her friends to help pay her way.
Charlie Sheen is allegedly helping Lindsay Lohan pay back her debts.
The former Two And A Half Men star reportedly sent the 26-year-old troubled actress a check for $100,000 to cover almost half of her hefty tax bill after they bonded while filming Scary Movie 5 together.
A source close to the Liz & Dick star told gossip website TMZ.com that she and Charlie became very close while filming the movie in September and talked about everything including her enormous debts. The 47-year-old father-of-five is said to have instantly offered to write her a check to help her out and she declined. But according to insiders, she was overjoyed when he sent the generous check directly to her business manager last week and immediately used it to pay off a huge chunk of her $233,904 tax bill.
