Charlie Sheen confirmed Saturday that his four-year-old twin boys Bob and Max were removed by authorities from Brooke Mueller's care and are currently staying with Denise Richards.
"Charlie supports the actions of the Department of Children and Family Services," a rep for the actor told ET in a statement regarding the transfer, which reportedly occurred late Thursday. "He knows Max and Bob are safe and in a stable, loving environment with Denise and the boys's sisters. Charlie will fully cooperate and fully participate in all proceedings," the statement said.
A source close to Richards confirmed to ET on Friday that the actress was currently taking care of Mueller and Sheen's twin boys.
According to Gossip Cop, the twins were removed from Mueller's Los Angeles home late Thursday when Children and Family Services officials, who had a warrant, determined that the residence was an "unsafe environment" for kids.
Mueller's publicist told ET in a statement that she is currently at UCLA Medical Center to get help for prescription drug use.
"Despite reports to the contrary, Brooke is currently at UCLA Medical Center where she has been since being admitted May 3. Brooke will be there for several more days, and will likely transition directly into a residential treatment facility to get help for prescription drug abuse. Brooke misses her children, and wants to get healthy so she can resume her life and get back to being a mom," the statement reads.
Bob and Max join Sam, 8, and Lola, 7, Richards' daughters with Sheen, as well as her one-year-old daughter Eloise. Sheen granted Richards full custody of Sam and Lola in 2010.
Richards married Sheen in 2002, but filed for divorce in 2005. Though their relationship has been notoriously rocky, she appeared on his Anger Management show last June.
"It was more awkward for everyone on set watching. We looked around and were like, 'Everyone is staring at us,'" she told Good Morning America about the experience.
