Charlie Sheen will not go to court to seek custody of his 2-year old twin sons, Bob and Max, after his ex-wife, Brooke Mueller, recently relapsed and was arrested for drug possession, RadarOnline reports.
The former Two and a Half Men star, who has been going through alleged drug issues himself, doesn’t think it’s in his sons’ best interest for him to pursue any changes in custody.
Charlie even paid Brooke’s bail after she was arrested over the weekend in Aspen, Colorado, and charged with felony drug possession and a misdemeanor charge of assault.
A source close to the couple was quoted as saying: “Charlie knows that Brooke is battling a horrible disease, but that she is inherently a good person, and great mother. Charlie won’t be going to court anytime soon to seek custody of the boys, or to make any changes in custodial time. Charlie is much more interested in helping Brooke, and knows that hauling her into court right now would not benefit anyone in the long run.”
Although Brooke has been told by her family and medical professionals that she needs to go to an inpatient rehab for at least nine months, she is ardently refusing to go because she doesn’t want to be away from her boys.
Brooke has battled an addiction to crack cocaine for most of her adult life.
As for Charlie, he will continue to see the boys every other weekend, as the custody agreement dictates right now. Brooke’s parents, and nannies have been the primary caregivers of the boys for much of the past year, and sources close to Charlie say that he doesn’t want to change that.
The once bitter custody battle over the couple’s twin boys has seen a recent change of heart for both parents, who are now on what seems to be very good terms.
“Charlie and Brooke are in a much better place than they were just several months ago. Charlie just wants Brooke to get help and get better, and will do whatever it takes to support her do that. They are divorced, but they once loved each other a great deal, and have two adorable sons together, and they co-parent Bob and Max extremely well,” a friend says.
