Denise Richards to the rescue again? Charlie Sheen's twin boys were removed from ex-wife Brooke Mueller's home by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services on Thursday, May 2, a source confirms to Us Weekly.
Radar Online was first to report the news that Sheen and Mueller's 4-year-old sons Bob and Max were taken away from their mother's care due to an "unsafe environment" caused by her ongoing alleged drug use.
A rep for Mueller, 35, tells Us, "We're not making any comments on this right now."
The boys will reportedly go into the care of Sheen's ex-wife Richards. "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."
The 42-year-old actress has cared for her exes' children on numerous occasions. In December 2012, Mueller entered rehab for the 19th time for Adderall addiction, and Richards took Bob and Max to stay with her.
"This is not the first time I've had all five [kids]," Richards explained to Access Hollywood at the time. "Brooke knows, and Charlie, that anytime they need help with the boys, I'm there." (Richards is mom to daughters Sam, 9, and Lola, 7, with Sheen, and adopted daughter, Eloise, 22 months.)
TMZ reports that a custody hearing over Mueller and Sheen's children has been set for next week.
