Charlie Sheen's twins moving out [updated]
Charlie Sheen is not the star of CBS's "Two and a Half Men" for at least the rest of the season. He has, however, gotten a new gig as a regular contributor to NBC News.
On Wednesday, Sheen appeared on the division's "Today" show for a third consecutive day. Today's topic: his tiny twin sons.
Late Tuesday, the judge ordered the boys, Bob and Max, removed from Sheen's house after their mother got a restraining order against the 45-year-old actor, according to reports.
"At this moment on live television, I do not know where my children are. This is not panicking. It's not about ego, it's not about emotion, it's just about getting very focused and getting very much in touch about what I have to do to complete the task of bringing these two beautiful young men back home to the home they deserve to be raised in, which more love, compassion, support, child care and everything else you could possibly want for a child," he said.
This time, however, Sheen was accompanied by his lawyer. Sheen told "Today" is now "very calm and focused."
Several news outlets reported late Tuesday that while Charlie Sheen was discovering all his Twitter friends, a judge was temporarily stripping the "Two and a Half Men" star of custody of his twin sons after their mother, Brooke Mueller got a temporary restraining order against Sheen.
The TRO prohibits the actor from going near her, the various news reports said. But most of the accounts did not make the connection between the TRO and the child custody situation, in which the judge ordered Sheen to surrender the young twin boys -- Bob and Max -- to their mom while the TRO remains in effect.
Tabloid Web site cum syndicated TV show "TMZ," however, said Mueller had submitted a declaration in which she alleged Charlie said, "I will cut your head off, put it in a box and send it to your mom."
According to legal docs TMZ said it obtained, Mueller also claims that on Feb. 23, Sheen threw a phone inside his house and then with a penknife in hand, threatened to stick it in Mueller's eye.
Mueller's lawyer told the court Mueller is currently in a day treatment facility for substance abuse and will see the kids for several hours a day while the TRO is in effect ; her mother will provide care for the rest of the day, TMZ reported.
