Charlie Sheen 'insane,' threatened violence, made anti-Jewish comments, estranged wife says in restraining order
The public unraveling of Charlie Sheen, having run through seemingly every other forum in Los Angeles, has rolled into Superior Court.
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.
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.”
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.
