London - Charlie Sheen has been granted visitation rights to his twin sons.
The 'Anger Management' star was told by a judge on Tuesday that he will be allowed to see five-year-old Bob and Max - who are currently in the care of their uncle Scott Mueller - for two monitored visits per week, each lasting two hours.
And the judge presiding over the case between Charlie and his ex-wife Brooke Mueller also told the actor he will incrementally get his custody of the boys restored to 50/50 if he continues to co-operate with the courts and the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services (CDFS), TMZ reports.
Also during the private hearing, the judge ruled Charlie will not be held in contempt of court after previously violating a gagging order banning him from speaking about Brooke and the case after his former spouse said she did not want to push the issue.
The outspoken actor had lashed out after Brooke's brother was given temporary custody of the boys, meaning they could move back into their mother's home, prompting Charlie to label the judge an "anus brain" and staff at Los Angeles Department of Children & Family Services (DCFS) "lascivious and incompetent."
Before being placed in the care of Scott, Charlie's ex-wife Denise Richards had been looking after the boys but she recently gave up guardianship because she said their violent behaviour was affecting her daughters, adopted Eloise, two, and her two kids with the actor, Sam, nine, and Lola, eight.
Charlie and Denise have enjoyed an amicable relationship until recently, when he accused her of stopping him from seeing the girls over Christmas, in a Twitter rant.
Meanwhile, it has been reported that the troubled star’s long-time team of advisors, including his manager, Mark Burg, entertainment lawyer, Jake Bloom, and publicist, Larry Solters, resigned from their posts last week, as he has stopped listening to their advice.
One insider told gossip website RadarOnline.com: “The bottom line was that Mark, Larry and Jake were unable to work effectively for Charlie. He is too much of a loose cannon at the moment with his increasingly erratic and bizarre behaviour and outrageous statements. He was refusing to listen to their advice and counsel.”
But a source close to the 48-year-old actor insisted he terminated his team.
The insider said: “They didn't resign, they were all fired.”
Another source said that Charlie's new girlfriend, Brett Rossi, is to blame for all of his recent issues.
The source said: “Things have been extremely chaotic in Charlie's camp for several weeks, ever since he began dating Brett.
“His team expressed concerns over the relationship... He was not happy with being questioned about who he was dating, so Charlie fired them all. Brett had also encouraged Charlie to get rid of Mark, Larry and Jason because she believed they didn't like her and were sabotaging the relationship.
“Brett is calling all the shots in Charlie's life at the moment and they have only known each other for six weeks! People close to Charlie believe the relationship will eventually fizzle out, but his career could be in tatters by that point.” - Bang Showbiz
