Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards didn’t make the best couple when they were married, but they have become cordial exes, attending court together on Tuesday.
The former lovers were photographed exiting a Los Angeles court after a hearing for Richards to assume temporary custody of Sheen’s 4-year-old sons, Max and Bob. Although the children are from his previous marriage to Brooke Mueller, while she seeks treatment for drug addiction, the young ones will need somewhere to go.
Richards (42) appeared serious as she left the courthouse in a short black suit. 47-year-old Sheen, dressed in a blue suit and tie, hammed it up for photographers, flashing a thumbs up sign and shaking hands with people before hopping into a waiting limousine.
The adorable twin boys accompanied Sheen and Richards to court for the closed-door session, and were carried to the car by their nannies upon conclusion.
As for what went down in court, it’s pretty confidential, which Sheen indicated outside the courthouse by pantomiming zipping his lips and throwing away the key.
This all started when the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services removed the twins from Mueller’s care last week due to her alleged ongoing prescription drug abuse.
