Charlie Sheen 'insane,' threatened violence, made anti-Jewish comments, estranged wife says in restraining order

Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller. The public unraveling of Charlie Sheen, having run through seemingly every other forum in Los Angeles, has rolled into Superior Court.

Read the restraining order A judge issued a temporary restraining order Tuesday, stripping the troubled -- a term that appears increasingly inadequate -- television star of contact with his two youngest children and barring him from coming within 100 yards his estranged wife.

The action by Judge Hank Goldberg came after Sheen's estranged wife, Brooke Mueller, filed a declaration chock-full of accusations against Sheen that might have dropped jaws a month ago but now seemed merely a confirmation of the bizarre and menacing personality on display in his nonstop media appearances.

“I am very concerned that [Sheen] is currently insane,” Mueller wrote in the declaration, which included numerous claims of criminal conduct such as allegations the actor discussed using child support money to “knock off” enemies and that he threatened to stab her in the eye with a pen knife.

Los Angeles police said they were not investigating the accusations and considered the matter one for family court.

Police were summoned Tuesday night to Sheen’s home when his twin toddler sons were handed over to Mueller. A hearing is set for March 22. Lawyers for Mueller and Sheen did not immediately return calls for comment.

Sheen told reporters at an impromptu predawn news conference outside his home that the restraining order “came out of the bleachers” and addressed his 2-year-old sons, Bob and Max, saying, “You are in my heart and I love you.”

Charlie Sheen holds one of his 23-month-old twins before they are removed from his Hollywood Hills home.

Among Mueller’s allegations about Sheen:

-- He threatened to kill her repeatedly, including Sunday night when he told her, “I will cut your head off, put it in a box and send it to your mom!

-- Called his manager, Mark Berg, a “stoopid jew pig” and talked about killing him

-- Told airplane passengers during a recent trip to the Bahamas that he hated actress Denise Richards, his former wife, and was going to have her head shaved

-- Told her during a rant in the Bahamas, “I’m untouchable! I’m Charlie Sheen! I’m more famous than Obama!”

Mueller and Sheen separated after a domestic violence incident in Aspen in 2009, but she and their children moved back into the actor’s home a few months ago, a decision Mueller described as “a big mistake” in her declaration.

According to the filing, Sheen shares the home with a porn star and a girlfriend.

“I made a big mistake,” wrote Mueller, who like Sheen has struggled with addiction.

She acknowledged she “fell off the wagon” last week “in conjunction with [Sheen’s] girlfriend.” She said she was too afraid to return to her Los Feliz home.

It's only a matter of time before "bi-winning" gets its own entry in Urban Dictionary. Sad as the current situation is, it's very quotable.

Charlie Sheen is a modern day Guru. He's the unapologetic answer to all troubled, addictive celebrities that end up repentant in rehab. He believes in his his own volition in a way that is irresitable to the media-especially when he mixes narcicism and hedonism with self empowerment in a way much more in tune with America's zeitgeist than say L. Ron Hubbard and Dianetics. He is what America really wants: Someone to show and tell them that ethics, behavior, self restraint, apologies, shame, and, most of all, integrity are extinct. The American dream is Charlie Sheen: A complacent, vapid, money thirsty, sociopathic child of an alcaholic. Whatever he does next will have more Impact on the future of how human beings live than whatever Quadaffi does.

Sheen is a boss. PERIOD

You're looking bad Charlie... avoid the spotlight!

this restraining order business is the most abusive of all existing laws. on saturday night i watched an episode of "cops" that included cops actually taking away a female in the relationship. not the male. times change, and i too cured myself from a useless mega overpriced hospital/ medical system. but charlie i would never wear my heart on my sleeve-- or bring kids into this world.

Brooke "Show me the money" Mueller.

a man's soon to be ex wife is a poor person to go to for an unbiased opinion.


what does making anti semitic, or anti jewish comments have to do with him being insane? what is it about people, that when they make comments that are slurs to other cultures or religions or nationalities, it becomes the focal point, instead of the issue or illness they are working through?

it's like, when they want to punish someone, they'll say, "oh, he made anti-whatever comments."

so weak, in my opinion

I don't see why his dad does not file to control his money

This guy had too much football without a helmet. He is not worthy of news. Star or no Star, he is demonstrating delusional behavior and is in dire need of help. I don"t want to waste my time reading about egotistical TV and movie stars - i.e. like Ms Lohan . going to jail. etc. Who really cares? Find something else important to write about. There are other Stars that are worth writing about that may actually be contributing to society. I would not give Charlie once ounce of air time-!

Why should someone who sleeps with a dog be surprised when she wakes up with fleas?

of course Brooke, "Oksana" Mueller has bad things to say about Charlie and they sound surprisingly like the things Mel said. So many of these women like Denise, Oksana, and Brooke only hook up with these men and have kids for the money they plan on squeezing out of them after they push them into what seems like insame behavior, when really they've just had enough!!

Now that we see the name of the Judge

We know why he took Charlies Kids away


i bet when the day comes and he overdoses or some one else kills him , those two exwifes of him are going to be so relieved and happy that they won't have some nut case in there or childrens life any more. mr sheen is insane, everytime you see him he acts and talks crazy. and i know he is still drinking maybe not the hard drugs [maybe] but he is still drinking, and that can make you the same crazy. his mind is gone and is never commeing back. this man need alot of help fast.people stop helping him. he needs a boot in the pants. some one has to wake this man up.

Charlie Sheen you rock!!!!!! I doubt that he is anti-sematic. Most people hate that boot that their boss's have over their neck. At will employment my ass!!!!! When you have a mortgage, car payments, student loan payments, credit card payments, cable tv service payments, utility payments, and health insurance thruough your employer. Then you tend to resent the privaiged position your boss has over you. The fact of the matter is that a disproportiate number of Big Holllywood industry moguls are Jewish just doesnt help. But be carefull Charlie. Paul Rodriguez went down this same road pointing out this fact out and now his career is just a footnote and an example of Latino Comedians who have come and gone.

HOW DARE HIM... He's not more famous than Obama!
