Brooke Mueller And Charlie Sheen’s Relationship Became Messy Few Months After Max Birth
Charlie and Brooke were introduced to each other by their mutual friend, Rebecca Gayheart in 2006. The duo then got engaged in 2007. Muller tied the knot with Charlie on May 30, 2008, as the third wife of Charlie Sheen. After a year of their marriage, Mueller gave birth to two sons, Max and Bob Sheen (2009).
Everything was going great in Max’s family for some months following his birth.
Then a couple of months before his 1st birthday, his father, Charlie was arrested on suspicion of domestic abuse on December 25, 2009. Mueller told police (per their report) that her husband held a knife to her throat and said, “You better be in fear.” But Sheen later insisted that his wife was the aggressor.
Sheen reportedly told the cops that Mueller got jealous because he had “shared a song for his daughter, whom he fathered with another woman,” and then Sheen got angry because Mueller threatened to divorce him and get sole custody of their sons.
Department Of Children And Family Service didn’t give Max and his brother’s Custody to their mom
In 2001, before her marriage to her ex-husband, Charlie, she was arrested in Miami – Dade Country, Florida for Cocaine Possession.
Years later in May 2013, the house that Mueller and her kids were living in was declared unsafe when she was suspected of drug use.
Following that, the Department of Children and Family Service pulled the custody of Max and his twin brother from Mueller. The actress joined a rehab program soon after and a year later she gained back her children’s custody.
Max Sheen Also Lived With His Father’s Ex, Denise; The Situation However Wasn’t Easy
After Mueller lost the guardianship of her sons, Charlie’s ex-wife and actress, Denise Richards would be the one to get Max and Bob’s custody.
Richards, however, would withdraw herself from the responsibility later that same year with the actress claiming that the boys were being too much to handle because of their violent behavior towards herself, her daughters, and animals.
In an interview, talking about the issue, Richards reported that several times, Max acted very sensitively and aggressively. She told that he and his brother would have violent mood swings and that they would throw any objects anywhere.
Sheen’s ex, however, said that the boys were loving and kind nonetheless.
After Richards, Max Went On To Live With His Grandparents
After Richards backed out from taking care of Max and Bob, the boys went on to live with their grandparents. In 2016, Max’s grandmother appeared in an interview and while speaking in regard to the boys and said,
“The boys are with me now and they are doing great, They are both in school here in Utah.”
Then in 2019, a source close to Max and his grandparents told People that he and his brother were doing fine. The boys had joined a local school in Utah.
