In stark contrast to his recent alleged violent behavior and shocking arrest, Charlie Sheen seemed like a picture-perfect family man when he sat down with his wife, Brooke Mueller, for an exclusive interview with In Touch last May.
Just seven months before a reported scuffle with Brooke on Christmas Day, the Two and a Half Men actor proudly proclaimed that he’d had “over a decade of being a sober, law-abiding member of society.” Gushing about the recent birth of their twin sons, Bob and Max, Brooke praised Charlie for leaving his wild ways behind him. “It’s hysterical to me that he has this reputation. Charlie is just amazing,” she said of her husband’s past, which
included stints in rehab, alleged prostitution use and pleading “no contest” in court to assaulting then-girlfriend Brittany Ashland in 1996.
“I feel like I’m doing something for the greater good. They’re relying on me to make the right choices so they can have the life they deserve,” Charlie added of fathering the twins, born in March 2009. Unfortunately, the scandal-ridden star seemed to make a wrong choice when he was arrested for domestic violence on December 25 in Aspen, Colo. Charlie, who was released from jail later that night, will return to an all-too familiar place – court - to face charges on February 8.
