After a two hour custody hearing with Charlie Sheen, Brooke Mueller left the courtroom victorious when the judge ruled the couple's current custody agreement -- which gives Brooke primary custody -- remains in place.
Although Brooke declined to comment on today's hearing, a source tells X17online exclusively:
- "Brooke is ecstatic about winning in court today. She knows she's the best parent out of the two and she doesn't want Charlie seeing the kids more than is absolutely required by law. She honestly feels she and her family can do the best job raising the two boys."
Brooke's mother and aunt have been instrumental in caring for Brooke and Charlie's twin sons Max and Bob, 2, the source tells us. While Brooke has been busy shooting Paris Hilton's new reality show, The World According to Paris, and doing out-patient therapy at an LA-area sober house, her mom and aunt have moved in and taken control of helping with the kids.
During today's hearing, Judge Hank Goldberg removed the media from the courtroom because "it was in the best interest of the children" due to "questions of abuse and other inflammatory and emotional issues."
The Two and a Half Men star petitioned for sole custody of the boys after he claimed Mueller had relapsed and was doing drugs again. Our source adds;
- "After Charlie made those accusations, Brooke knew she'd be forced to get tough in court. This is exactly what she had hoped would happen."
