Sheen surrenders custody of children – report

The Two and A Half Men star has been embroiled in a bitter custody battle over the former couple’s daughters – six-year-old Sam and four-year-old Lola Rose – since divorcing Richards in 2006 after four years of marriage.

The pair called a truce by celebrating New Year’s Eve (31Dec09) together with an intimate family gathering at the actress’ home in Los Angeles.

Now Sheen and Richards have both signed a written document giving full legal custody to the Wild Things actress, reports

Richards was reportedly seeking full custody following Sheen’s marital problems with current wife Brooke Mueller – the couple has been largely estranged since a Christmas Day (25Dec09) fight landed Sheen behind bars in Colorado.

Sheen has pleaded not guilty to third-degree assault, menacing, and criminal mischief and will stand trial in July (10) over the alleged bust-up.
