Brooke Mueller wants Sheen held in contempt of court over candid TMZ interview

Charlie Sheen's ex-wife Brooke Mueller has asked a judge to hold the actor in contempt of court after alleging he violated the terms of their divorce deal by discussing her drug problems with a media outlet. The former Two and a Half Men star lashed out at Mueller and officials at America's Department of Child and Family Services (DCFS) in a candid interview on U.S. gossip show TMZ Live on Friday (01Nov13), venting his frustration after learning the recovering addict could gain full custody of their twin sons Bob and Max after completing her latest stint in a drug rehabilitation facility. During the rant, he reportedly claimed the former real estate agent, who spent Friday night with her boys for the first time in months, had damaged the four-year-old twins emotionally, and alleged that they suffered night terrors after every visit with their mother. The accusations have infuriated Mueller and her lawyers have now issued a subpoena to TMZ editors to hand over the footage so they can present it as evidence in court to prove that Sheen broke the terms of their 2011 divorce settlement, in which he agreed to "not disclose to any media sources personal information relating to Brooke's alleged drug usage". If Sheen is found to be in contempt of court, he is likely to have his visitation with the kids restricted and could even face jail. The news comes just a day after Mueller was denied a request for an emergency restraining order against Sheen as the former couple continues to fight over the custody of their kids. She will argue her case for a protective order again next month (Dec13). Mueller and Sheen have been fighting over their kids since splitting in 2010 after two years of marriage. The twins have been under the temporary care of Sheen's second wife, Denise Richards, since May (13), when Mueller was stripped of custody and admitted to a rehab clinic.
