Charlie Sheen is taking on the role of “super-dad” following his ex-wife Brooke Mueller’s arrest for assault and cocaine possession late last week.
According to TMZ, Charlie Sheen is prepared to take responsibility for his 2-year-old twins with Mueller while she seeks help for her ongoing drug addiction.
The twins, Bob and Max, are currently en route home from Aspen where they were staying with Mueller before her arrest.
The boys will be watched by both Sheen and Mueller’s parents while Brooke takes some personal time in order to “get better.”
Before her most recent relapse, Mueller, who has publicly battled an addiction to crack cocaine for years, had been relying heavily on her parents for help with the twins.
Her parents are said to be furious about her latest arrest, including the fact that Charlie, despite a nasty custody battle with Brooke a fear years ago, allegedly posted an $11,000 bond to get Brooke out of jail.
“They actually wanted to leave her in jail,” a source said.
“Brooke’s family is done with her, she has to get straight or she is going to die.”
RadarOnline reports that Mueller has been told by medical professionals that she needs to enroll in a 9-month rehab program in order to kick her addiction and get her life back on track.
“[Brooke is] simply powerless to her addiction right now. It’s a disease and it’s very much in control of her right now. Brooke is the most amazing, caring woman, and mother, when she is sober. Brooke just can’t get in control of her disease, and if she doesn’t finally surrender to it, and listen to what her family, and medical professionals are telling her to do, she could die,” the source added.
Charlie has also publicly battled addictions in the past but recently seems to be on a good path.
We hope Brooke is able to get the long-term help that she needs with the support of Charlie and her family.
