Charlie Sheen says sons are ‘grateful’ that he’s ‘present’ and ‘responsible’ while mom Brooke Mueller battles addiction

Charlie Sheen says his sons are “grateful” for the way he is handling their mom Brooke Mueller’s addiction battle.

The “Two and a Half Men” star — who shares 14-year-old twins Max and Bob with his ex-wife — revealed he’s remaining “present” for his sons while the actress tries “to figure some stuff out on her end.”

“The boys are proud of me, now. They see what mom goes through, and I’m not dumping on mom because I know it’s a thing,” he told People last month.

“But I think they’re super grateful that they have a Dad that is present, accounted for, responsible, focused, punctual.”

Sheen, 58, and Mueller, 46, have recently re-hashed the agreement of their child custody conditions, which is dependent upon her sobriety.

Documents obtained by Page Six on Jan. 19 revealed the actor will be granted emergency “sole legal custody” of the teenagers “in the event Brooke tests positive for drugs or alcohol.”

Mueller will undergo tests for “drugs and alcohol as often as required by her probation officer” and “within 24 hours of a written request (email or text) from Charlie or his attorney,” the documents read.

Drug tests are required to be submitted at least once a week, and if she tests positive or misses a test, her custody rights will be terminated immediately.

The couple agreed to the terms above in November 2022 and August 2023, but the new filing allows Sheen to file an ex parte motion, which allows the conditions to be permitted without a response from his ex.

In August 2023, Mueller signed the custody modification shortly before she “relapsed and engaged in abusing alcohol and controlled substances.”

Meanwhile, Sheen celebrated six years of sobriety this month.

In an interview with People in December, the “Anger Management” star explained his new daily routine since getting clean.

He referred to himself as a “single dad,” who wakes up at around 5 a.m. every morning to get work done before helping his sons get ready for school.

“I have a very consistent lifestyle now,” he continued.

Sheen filed for divorce from Mueller in 2010 after tying the knot only two years before.

The actor was previously married to ex-wife Denise Richards with whom he shares daughters Sami, 19, and Lola, 18. He and his high school girlfriend Paula Profit also share daughter Cassandra, 39.
