After several weeks of back-and-forth and tentative agreements, it appears that actor Charlie Sheen and his latest ex-wife Brooke Mueller have worked out their differences and hammered out a custody agreement regarding their twin toddlers, Bob and Max. At one point, Mueller filed a temporary restraining order to have the boys removed from Sheen’s home during his strange Twitter- and TMZ-recorded rants.
TMZ now reports that, for the next two months, Sheen will have visitation with the two-year-olds every other weekend from Saturday morning until Sunday evening. For the two months following that, Sheen will have parenting time with the boys every other weekend from Saturday morning through Monday morning. If that time period is completed successfully (i.e., no drugs, no alcohol, no incidents) and if he remains drug-and-alcohol free, Sheen will have the twins every other weekend Saturday through Monday morning, plus Wednesday morning through Thursday morning.
The ramp-up type of arrangement is not unusual in cases where the children are very young, the non-custodial parent has not spent substantial time with them prior to the custody order or where the non-custodial parent is working on mental health or sobriety issues and can use the custody plan as an incentive in recovery.
Both Sheen and Mueller have apparently agreed to submit to random drug testing three times monthly. Both are required to have nannies with them at all time in the presence of their kids. (Both mother and father reportedly have previously had drug problems.)
Sheen’s new girlfriends – the “goddesses”, as he calls them – are not allowed to show any public displays of affection toward the twins per the custody agreement and neither Sheen nor Mueller is allowed to be photographed with the boys while with a romantic partner.
