Denise Richards currently is taking care of Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller’s 4-year-old sons Bob and Max. The twins were removed from Mueller’s care by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services on Thursday night (May 2).
TMZ reports that officials determined Brooke’s home was unsafe because they suspected she was using drugs again. A court hearing has been set for next week to determine where the children should live permanently.
“Brooke is really not in good shape at all,” a source tells Us. “She is not opposed to Denise having the kids — that’s her first choice.”
However Mueller is refusing to go to rehab. A source told Radar Online today, “Brooke is completely in denial about how bad her addiction is to crystal meth. Even after losing Bob and Max, she is still refusing to go back to rehab.”
The insider added, “The only chance Brooke has of even having visitation with the boys is if she is in a treatment program. The longer Brooke goes without getting treatment, the more it hurts her chances of getting the boys back.”
Late last year Mueller was in rehab for the 19th time for her addiction to Adderall.
Already mom to three daughters – Sam, 9, Lola, 7, and Eloise, 22 months – Denise has said she’s always willing to be “there for the boys.”
“They’re our family and they’re Sam and Lola’s brothers and I can’t imagine growing up without my sister, so anytime she needs help, I’m there for the boys. (Sam and Lola] are the best big sisters to [the boys] and they love them.”
A rep for Mueller, 35, tells Us, “We’re not making any comments on this right now.”
