Charlie Sheen has ignored a court-appointed gag order and blasted officials at Los Angeles County's Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) in an online rant. Earlier this month (Nov13), a judge warned the actor that he could face jail time if he violated an order relating to his ongoing custody battle with his ex-wife Brooke Mueller and spoke publicly about the case or the reality TV star's drug use.
He tested the ruling on 8 November (13) when he attacked DCFS bosses after they approved plans for his former brother-in-law, Scott Mueller, to take over as temporary guardian of the actor's twin sons.
In a Twitter.com rant, he wrote, "so lemme see if I got this straight. my twin boys are now in harms way and in grave danger. being 'raised' by a gaggle of incompetent and lascivious marionettes all ruled and fooled by an adderol (sic) snorting husk called Brooke. and guess what CPS and 'I'm Italian' judge anus-brain, you may have gagged me temporarily, but mark my unspoken words, anything happens to my boys, and you will know get to know me, know who I truly am, a loving father. tag - I'm it."
He later added, "and if this means being jailed for loving and trying to protect my children, then go for it. I have as many friends on the inside as i do out here. my passion WILL NOT be silenced. you are all now standing in my way. I'd recommend a shift in your geography."
The outspoken star escaped legal action following that tweet, and took aim at the DCFS officials again on Tuesday (26Nov13), using cryptic alternative acronyms for the agency.
He wrote, "Dungeness Crab Fo Shizzle. Dooshes Can't Foil Sheen. Disengaging Charlie Feels Safe. Deny Completely Forensic Stats."
Mueller lost custody of the four-year-old twins she shares with Sheen in May (13), following a drugs raid on her home.
She subsequently checked in to a rehab facility and Sheen's other ex-wife Denise Richards took the boys in. She gave up caring for the twins last month (Oct13) after claiming they had become unruly and had started to bully her daughters and pick on the family pets. She urged DCFS bosses to consider having the boys evaluated for behavioural issues.
The twins' uncle has moved in to his sister's former home to care for her sons as she attempts to to regain custody.
A judge has yet to comment on Sheen's latest rant.
Wrestler Hulk Hogan's TV star daughter has reportedly called off her engagement. Brooke Hogan announced she was set to wed American football player Phil Costa after he proposed in Las Vegas in June (13), but the pair has now decided to call off its wedding plans, according to TMZ.com.
Editors at the site suggest Hogan has now returned to her native California after moving to Texas to be near Costa's team, the Dallas Cowboys.
Hogan hinted about the relationships in her life earlier this week (begs18Nov13) in a philosophical tweet, writing, "Seeing the true colors of a person is a beautiful thing. Amazing what they do after you stop giving."
Brooke shot to fame after appearing in her father's reality show, Hogan Knows Best.
Denise Richards was stunned and embarrassed when a private letter she sent to Child Protective Services officials regarding the welfare of her ex-husband Charlie Sheen's sons went public. The former Bond girl relinquished responsibility of four-year-old twins Max and Bob earlier this month (Nov13) after urging Los Angeles CPS bosses to consider having the boys evaluated for behavioural issues.
In a letter to a leading official, she detailed what horrors the twins could be, taunting and attacking her daughters and her pets and playing with their faeces.
But she never intended the letter to go viral and was horrified when was picked up by media outlets.
She tells U.S. news show Entertainment Tonight, "I was sick about it... I was angry... Then I stopped and had to think, 'Oh my God, what did I write in that?' It was a very personal thing. I was embarrassed... I thought, 'Maybe I should have done it differently.'
"It wasn't, like, a court document, it wasn't a declaration, I purposely went that way to write something personal as a mom and all of that. I was very upset that something like that would become public."
Richards took on responsibility of Max and Bob and welcomed them into her home when their mother, Brooke Mueller, checked into rehab following a drugs raid on her home earlier this year (13).
The boys' uncle - Mueller's brother - has been given custody of them and he has moved in to his sister's former home to care for them as she tries to regain custody.
Back To The Future stars Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd are set to reunite on the small screen. Lloyd, who played eccentric scientist Doc Emmett Brown in the movie franchise, is to make a guest appearance in Fox's new U.S. sitcom The Michael J. Fox Show.
Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter Lloyd will play the zany high school principal at the school where Fox's TV wife, played by Betsy Brandt, teaches.
Brooke Shields and Sting have also booked guest spots on the show.
Charlie Sheen's troubled ex-wife Brooke Mueller has been hit with a lawsuit from a former nanny who alleges she is owed up to $10 million (GBP6.6 million) in unpaid overtime wages. Norma Lavizzo, who previously took care of Mueller's kids, is claiming she worked way over her scheduled 40-hour weeks, but received zero overtime pay, according to TMZ.com.
In the suit, Lavizzo alleges she was put on call by Mueller and had to make herself available 24 hours a day. She also claims she worked non-stop during a four-day family trip to Miami, Florida.
The former nanny apparently attempted to settle the matter with Mueller privately before filing suit, but her negotiations did not succeed and she's now asking for $10 million.
The reality TV star's problems are beginning to pile up as she battles for custody of her twin sons after a rehab stint - she has been forced to move out of the home Sheen bought for her as her brother moves in to look after her sons.
In May (13), the four-year-old twins were placed in the care of Sheen's second ex-wife, actress Denise Richards, after Mueller lost custody of them following a drugs bust that prompted her to check into a rehabilitation facility.
Last week (05Nov13), Richards insisted she could no longer take care of the kids because they were terrorising her daughters and pets. The boys were handed over to Mueller's brother, Scott Mueller.
Actress Shirley Mitchell, the last surviving adult cast member of beloved U.S. comedy series I Love Lucy, has died at the age of 94. Mitchell, who played leading lady Lucille Ball's friend Marion Strong on the show, passed away on Monday (11Nov13) from heart failure in Los Angeles, California.
The actress joined I Love Lucy in 1953 and appeared in three episodes.
Her other TV credits include Petticoat Junction, The Beverly Hillbillies, Perry Mason and The Red Skelton Hour. She also made a few big screen appearances in films like Big Business and The War of the Roses.
Mitchell was the widow of composer and lyricist Jay Livingston, who helped pen Doris Day's Que Sera Sera. He passed away in 2001. She is survived by their two children Scott and Brooke.
Charlie Sheen is placing the house he bought for his ex-wife Brooke Mueller on the market as they continue to fight over custody of their twin boys. The Platoon star has been left furious by the latest developments in their kids' care, after a judge allowed Mueller's brother to move into his sister's Los Angeles home following his appointment as the four year olds' temporary guardian last week (ends08Nov13).
The former realtor has agreed to relocate to keep the peace as she is currently attempting to regain full custody, six months after she was stripped of her parental rights following a drugs bust in May (13).
As a result of the latest drama, Sheen has decided to offload the pad he bought for Mueller and his boys in a bid to oust his ex from the gated community, where both he and another ex, Denise Richards, have homes.
However, the actor has no interest in making money on the sale of the $4.8 million (£3.2 million) house - because as part of their divorce settlement, Mueller, who is sober after completing treatment in rehab, would get half of any profit, reports TMZ.com.
The sober coach who is overseeing reality TV star Brooke Mueller's recovery insists he has no doubt Charlie Sheen's ex-wife will beat her demons and regain custody of the couple's twin sons. Mueller lost custody of the four year olds in May (13) following a drug bust at her home, which prompted her to check into rehab.
Actress Denise Richards, who is another of Sheen's exes, took on the boys while their mother was seeking help for an ongoing substance abuse problem, but the actress recently insisted she could no longer look after Max and Bob because they were terrorising her daughters and pets.
Last week (ends08Nov13), the boys' uncle was handed custody of the twins and he has reportedly moved in to the home Sheen bought for his sister. Mueller has agreed to move out until she wins back custody.
Mueller's sober coach Carmine Thompson now hopes she gets her sons back soon because his charge is a "great mum", who has been sober for seven months since her relapse.
He tells news show Entertainment Tonight, "We test her (for drugs) constantly... She is clean and sober."
Thompson adds, "She is a fantastic mother. It's refreshing to watch... I think she's a great parent... If I was a four year old, she's the kind of mom I would want."
However, he admits Mueller is still at risk of relapsing again following her most recent stint in rehab - her 20th.
The sober coach says, "Relapse does happen and, in Brooke's case, that's an immediate concern."
Actor Charlie Sheen has vowed to "make amends" with his former TV boss Chuck Lorre in person, more than two years after engaging in a war of words which led to his firing from hit sitcom Two And A Half Men. The hellraising Platoon star famously fell out with Lorre in 2011, branding him a "stupid little man", prompting the show creator to drop his leading actor and replace him with Ashton Kutcher.
Sheen continued to slam Lorre throughout last year (12) as he launched his own comedy, Anger Management, but now it appears he is ready to put the feud behind him once and for all and reunite for a new project.
Taking to his Twitter.com blog on Sunday (10Nov13), he wrote, "hey Chuck, I have an idea that u (sic) need to hear after I make amends to you and yours. which I will do in person."
Lorre has yet to respond to the proposal, which Sheen made two days after using his Twitter page to blast his ex-wife Brooke Mueller over their continued custody battle. Their twin boys were reunited with mum over the weekend (09-10Nov13) after authorities named her brother temporary guardian and allowed him to move in with Mueller.
Charlie Sheen is risking jail time by ignoring warnings not to trash his ex-wife Brooke Mueller online after learning her brother has been given custody of their sons. On Friday (08Nov13), a Los Angeles judge approved plans for the four-year-old twins' uncle, Scott Mueller, to take over as their new temporary guardian - and for him to move in with his sister, a recovering addict, as she continues to attempt to win back custody of the boys following a spell in rehab.
Officials at the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) granted Scott Mueller the responsibility of caring for Bob and Max after another of Sheen's exes, Denise Richards - their previous temporary guardian - revealed she could no longer look after the boys due to allegations about their increasingly bad behaviour.
Reports suggest Scott will be moving in with his sister this weekend (09-10Nov13) - and Sheen is far from happy.
Despite threats of jail time if he violates a gagging order on the custody case or his ex-wife's drug problems, the actor took to Twitter.com on Friday night (08Nov13) to vent his thoughts about the welfare of his sons.
He raged, "so lemme see if I got this straight. my twin boys are now in harms way and in grave danger. being 'raised' by a gaggle of incompetent and lascivious marionettes all ruled and fooled by an adderol snorting husk called Brooke. and guess what CPS and 'I'm Italian' judge anus-brain, you may have gagged me temporarily, but mark my unspoken words, anything happens to my boys, and you will know get to know me, know who I truly am, a loving father. tag - I'm it."
He later added, "and if this means being jailed for loving and trying to protect my children, then go for it.
"I have as many friends on the inside as i do out here. my passion WILL NOT be silenced. you are all now standing in my way. I'd recommend a shift in your geography."
