Brooke Mueller's Twins Removed From Home, Given to Denise Richards

Brooke Mueller has temporarily lost custody of her twin sons after the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services removed them from her home. The boys are now with Charlie Sheen's ex-wife, Denise Richards, who now has temporary custody of Bob and Max.

"Brooke was given many opportunities by social workers to clean up her act. Social workers felt that Bob and Max weren't safe in Brooke's care. The decision was made late on Thursday afternoon, and the boys are no longer in Brooke's care. It's expected at some point the boys will be taken care of by Charlie Sheen's ex-wife, Denise Richards, who has cared for them in the past when Brooke went to rehab," a family friend told Radar Online.

"(Richards) loves the boys and their safety and wellbeing mean everything to her. Bob and Max are safe, and that is all that matters. Denise is simply complying with the court order," the source added.

Mueller previously attended rehab for addiction to Adderall. CFS continued to monitor the situation and decided after a year, that the boys would be better off with Richards, who took care of them in December.

"She hasn't lived in her house for a few weeks," a source told E! News of Mueller's behavior. "They don't know where she's at. It's been so bad. They boys have spent so much time with Denise that it was the logical choice that she would get temporary custody. Charlie is completely supportive of it and wants what's best for the boys. Charlie will probably have a better relationship with the boys now. Everyone is glad they'll have some stability."

"The boys are so happy right now," the source added. "It got to a point where they didn't want to go home to Brooke anymore."

"They're our family and they're Sam and Lola's brothers, and I can't imagine growing up without my sister, so anytime she needs help, I'm there for the boys. Sam and Lola are the best big sisters to the boys, and they love them. I know it doesn't seem normal, but it is our normal. They're little kids and I love children and, like I said, they're our daughter's brothers, so I can't say no," Richards told "Access Hollywood" in December.
