Estranged couple Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller have reached a joint custody agreement for their two-year-old twin sons, Bob and Max, TMZ is reporting. The former ‘Two and a Half Men’ star’s lawyer, Mark Gross, and Mueller’s lawyer, Lori Howe, took the newly-revised agreement to L.A. judge Hank Goldberg on May 31, 2011.
The new joint custody agreement comes after Mueller entered rehab again earlier this year for her substance abuse problems. Sheen and Mueller have yet to sign the deal, which will give both joint legal and physical custody. However, as part of the agreement, Bob and Max will spend more time with Mueller.
Sheen and Mueller will wait to sign the new agreement until it’s removed from the court, in an effort to keep it confidential. The move will also allow the two to skip their upcoming court date. Judge Goldberg sealed the agreement at Howe’s request, as he deemed it in the twins’ best interest and cited “questions of abuse and other inflammatory and emotional issues.”
The agreement comes after Mueller dropped a bid for a restraining order against Sheen. But the actor still put a bid in for sole custody on May 27, as Mueller refused to take a drug test. Mueller did leave the court house smiling after the joint custody agreement was given to Judge Goldberg.
