Charlie Sheen's twins moving out [updated]

By Lisa de Moraes

UPDATE:

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."

Original report:

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.

At this moment, neither parent is is competent to be raising two young toddlers. Get them away from these sorry excuses for parents before lasting damage is done.

Great. I don't know why I didn't expect it, but it's totally great to know Mueller is an addict too. At least she's in treatment, so apparently she seems to get it. That's more than can be said of Sheen.

So glad the media love to cover every awful detail with such joy. This whole sorry story will probaby end with an armed standoff with police or Sheen being dragged off to a mental hospital. It's actually very sad.

Bree Olson real name is whose real name is Rachel Oberlin will ruin Charlie Sheen. Has he been tested for diseases? Plural. Diseases? Bree is at every adult convention and not because she is a star, but because she desperately needs attention.

I find it amusing that in at least two of Chuck Lorre's series, the co-star has outperformed the star by earning Emmy wins, thus inadvertently triggering the star's meltdown.

These two parents had everything and aren't fit to be around their own children. Charlie should follow the Mom into treatment...his rants sounded to me a bit like Qdaffi...I can't understand either one of them, and I don't think I'm the Lone Ranger.

We are being served plenty of this obnoxious trash on the TV.WaPo should not add to the garbage.

How can the judge believe the testimony of an addict like Mueller? Besides, even she is telling the truth, the boys' father never said a thing that would indicate he is any danger to them. He appeared on CNN and showed Piers Morgan a document indicating he tested clean for all drugs. How can a judge accept that document over the testimony of a drug addict like Mueller?

It is very much like modern justice that a company will fire an employee for something said far away from the workplace and then a judge will seize the man's children even while medical evidence shows no irresponsible conduct.

Who'd 'ave thunk that Britney Spear and KFed would be considered "model parents?"

Of course, since Sarah Palin became a rock star politician and grifter, my regard for Paris Hilton's intellect has literally skyrocketed.

Seriously, in a presidential election between Sarah Palin and Paris Hilton, I'd vote for Hilton...with no hesitation.

judeo-christian al-queda strikes again!

it's no more the Court's business how Charlie raises his kids anymore than it is the Court's business to take your kids because of the way you raise them!

the fact that you teach them to believe in the fantasy of 'all white heaven' or "heaven" at all should be enough for a rational non-white supremacist court take them away from you.

the fact that you send them to a school that teaches that we are a "nation under God" rather than a nation under a Constitution should also be enough...

what a bunch of terrorists you are - to approve of the State being able to decide how children should be raised!

Didn't Thomas Jefferson enslave the children he had with Sally Hemmings?

didn't George Washington's parents raise George to be a racist enslaver?

What about the children of Klansmen - shouldn't they be taken away from them?

how about Obama's children? Doesn't Obama discourage his children from experiencing the free and natural love and affection the children would have for the natural texture of their own hair - teaching them to worship "white" hair and "white" standards of beauty? "White" parents don't kink up or wooly up their children's hair - to look like "black" or 'African' hair - now that the POTUS is a wooly haired person....

think about it neo-nazis - aren't you 'just following orders' rather than providing equal protection of the law or the right for children to have two equal "private parent-child sphere"s?

I hope the State sends the police to take your children from YOU - the next time you mention anything about the fantasy of an afterlife, God, Allah, or Santa Clause...

I hope the State takes your children from you when you break the law speeding or tailgating with the children in your car... or when you get caught embezzling 670,000,000 dollars from Enron...

I hope the State takes your children from you the next time you discriminate against a minority ethnic or religious group...

maybe you'll learn about what "freedom", "equality", "equal protection", and "due process" really means - you judeo-christian white supremacist racist religious extreemist hypocrites...

and i'm only referring to the judeo-christian white supremacist racist religious extremist hypocrites - not the rational people

“[W]hen the custody of children is the question … the best interest of the children is the paramount fact. [Constitutional, inalienable, and Civil] rights of father and mother sink into insignificance before that.” Kartman v. Kartman, 163 Md. 19, 22,161 A. 269 (1932)


and when freedom to raise your children not to be judeo-christian white supremacists is the question, the best interest of judeo-christian white supremacy is the paramount fact - the rights of rational citizens sinks into insignificance before that!
