Not that Charlie Sheen needs any more help in ruining his reputation (he's doing a pretty good job of that all on his own), but ex-goddess Brooke Mueller has nevertheless stepped in to lend a hand to the cause.
Just yesterday, Mueller enlisted a judge to get her twin sons from the confines of Sober Valley Lodge (aka Sheen's house) and back into her custody and also managed to obtain a temporary restraining order against the Two and a Half Men albatross. Today, we found out exactly what she claimed that led to the judge's immediate issuance of the order, and let's just say, they're bad.
Even for Charlie Sheen...
As always, Sheen has, in his own ever-winning way, denied the claims against him, telling the Today show that Brooke's version of events is "colorful...That's a good one, I guess. If you spend enough time around me, you can formulate things and make it sound like it could have come from my mouth, but you can do that watching reruns."
Now that that's out of the way, what are these allegations?
Well, to start with, they all paint quite a violent picture of Brooke and Charlie's alleged past, which shouldn't be wholly surprising. But while his Christmas Day arrest and Aspen attack was the first sign of any trouble between the two, according to the sworn statement Mueller filed with the court yesterday, she claims it wasn't an isolated event.
According to the document, Brooke alleges that on Feb. 23, while vacationing in the Bahamas, Charlie went off on another threat-laden tirade, spit on her feet, punched her in the arm and threatened to stick a penknife, which he was holding at the time, in Brooke's eye.
She also claimed that Sheen took nearly 2-year-old sons Max and Bob from her home on Feb. 26 without permission, which is how they came to be staying in Sheen's goddess-infested home. When she attempted to retrieve them, she was again allegedly threatened—with death by beheading, no less—by Sheen.
According to Mueller, Sheen said to her, "I will cut your head off, put it in a box and send it to your mom."
In her filing she states: "I am very concerned that [Sheen] is currently insane. I am in great fear that he will find me and attack me and I am in great fear for the children's safety while in his care."
She also claims that Sheen—who is currently fighting accusations his "Chaim Levine" comments to Chuck Lorre were the least bit anti-Semitic—once referred to his own lawyer in a text message as a "stooped Jew pig."
She then went on level more accusations from their past, recounting the following:
"In October 2009, [Sheen] knocked me to the floor causing me to hit my head on the corner of a couch," she claims. "I was knocked unconscious and required medical attention, including a CAT scan." She told the court she has photos of the injuries, in addition to two witnesses and a letter of apology from Sheen about the incident.
Mueller also told the court that Sheen allegedly asked for $20,000 in cash from the child support payments he's been making, so as to "have untraceable cash to 'knock off a few people' because 'the people I hate violently are going to get severely punished.' "
Furthermore, she claims that after the Christmas attack, Sheen told her, "I should have killed you when I had the chance."
"I believe his rage is the result of an intense mental issue, rather than simply a reaction to substance abuse," she wrote.
She also noted that she only went to the Bahamas in order to placate Sheen, claiming that on the flight down, Sheen told everyone on board that he hated ex-wife Denise Richards and "was going to have her hair shaved off." During the trip, he also allegedly uttered this surefire catchphrase: "I'm untouchable. I'm Charlie Sheen! I'm more famous than Obama!"
As for Charlie, he addressed the Bahamian situation, telling RadarOnline.com that Brooke didn't leave the vacation because of his behavior, but was rather kicked off the trip by him after he found cocaine and other drug paraphernalia in the bathroom. Naturally, he took photos of the alleged evidence and shared them with the site.
Brooke, for her part, admitted to her struggle with sobriety in the court documents, saying she has "not been perfect," but noting that Sheen is less than supportive and consistently "mocks my recovery efforts."
In the meantime, while a hearing on the temporary restraining order is set for March 22, Charlie and his attorney turned up on the Today show this morning and said that the actor planned on being in court as early as Thursday or Friday of this week to regain custody of the boys, or as he put it, "to do everything he can to bring those two beautiful boys back to the home they deserve to be raised in."
And here we were thinking they deserved a whole lot more.
