Many Washington residents are no doubt familiar with actor Charlie Sheen and his highly public personal problems. One of his ex-wives, Denise Richards, is now helping him out with his latest dilemma. Though their marriage has been over for quite some time, the two reunited at a Los Angeles courthouse on May 7 for a child custody case - over Sheen's children with another ex-wife, Brooke Mueller.
Richards has stepped up to take over as custodial parent of Sheen's twin boys while their mother attends rehabilitation to fight her prescription drug addiction. Mueller checked into UCLA Medical Center and will be transferred to a treatment facility. Mueller's three-year-old boys were recently taken from her by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, which prompted her treatment. Richards was granted temporary custody after the children were taken from Mueller.
