Report: With ex in rehab, Sheen wants custody

April 18, 2011 at 9:48 AM ET

Headline-making Charlie Sheen wants custody of his two toddler sons while their mother, Brooke Mueller, is in rehab, reports.

Numerous sources, including E! Online, reported that Mueller had re-entered drug rehab after reportedly being sighted trying to sell a watch and a stereo at a Los Angeles-area pawn shop recently. Mueller is reportedly receiving $55,000 a month in child support and the twins are being cared for by her mother and family.

E! News quoted Sheen as saying about Mueller and the pawn shop incident, "I told her, don't pick a f---ing fight with a warlock because you're going to lose." The site also reported a source as saying Mueller refuses to take a drug test unless Sheen does as well.

As far as the custody battle, RadarOnline reports that Sheen's camp thinks the young boys are better off with him, but quotes a source on Mueller's side who notes that he is currently on his "Torpedo of Truth" tour, saying "The last place the twins should be is in different hotel rooms every night. Toddlers need love, continuity and stability. They have that with Brooke's extended family in Los Angeles."
