Charlie Sheen’s Estranged Wife Seeks Contempt Charge Against the Actor as Custody Fight Turns Ugly

Mar 3, 2011  •  Post A Comment

Charlie Sheen’s soon-to-be ex-wife has said she will ask a judge to hold the actor in contempt for talking publicly about her alleged drug use, TMZ.com reported.

Brooke Mueller says Sheen’s disclosure of details about her private life violates the divorce settlement he signed. Sheen has been telling various media outlets–including TMZ and NBC–that Mueller is doing drugs, the story says.

A contempt violation could land Sheen in jail for as much as six months, the story says.

Sheen has said he will fight Mueller for custody of the couple’s twin sons. RadarOnline reported that Sheen is gathering evidence alleging recent drug use by Mueller and plans to go to court Monday to try to strip her of custody.

“The embattled Two and a Half Men star is assembling his lawyers together for a strategy meeting Thursday as they decide on legal arguments and discuss evidence to present to the judge who ordered that his 23-month-old twins Bob and Max be given back to Brooke on Tuesday night,” RadarOnline reported.

A source close to Sheen reportedly told the website: "Charlie will have statements from some of his employees, credible drug experts and friends who are all eyewitnesses to Brooke’s drug use within the last week to 10 days."

Meanwhile, Sheen’s new Twitter account is also making news. The Guinness Book of Records announced Thursday that Sheen set a record as the fastest Twitter account to reach 1 million followers, Monsters and Critics reported. It apparently took Sheen’s account just 25 hours, 17 minutes to hit the milestone.

The Hollywood Reporter has said Sheen is going to begin making endorsements through the Twitter account, and the activity could earn him $1 million a year.
