Charlie Sheen’s Young Kids Hopefully Protected from Frenzy


By Daniel Gates


Charlie Sheen had a pretty rough week, first winding up in the hospital, then in rehab. His hit show “Two and a Half Men” will be on hiatus, but more importantly: What’s going on with his four young children while all of this drama unfolds?

Ex-wife Denise Richards, who was with Sheen during his last big meltdown and visited him in the hospital this week, has been forced again to shield their daughters Sam, 6, and Lola, 7, against a media frenzy. She seems determined to keep the chaos away from her family.

At the height of yesterday’s firestorm, Richards tweeted, “I love how certain media outlets say my ‘friends’ are speaking to the press.. all B.S. Nothing has been discussed this is a private matter.” Sheen is still an active part of his daughters’ lives. He was on his way to visit the girls last month when rumors that he’d died in an accident spread like wildfire.

The actor’s twin toddler sons Max and Bob, meanwhile, are with their mother, Brooke Mueller, who is in the midst of divorcing Sheen. Yesterday, the boys were spotted on a stroll with Mueller’s nanny.

Hopefully the tumult surrounding Sheen doesn’t disrupt what seem to be stable, happy lives for his children. It would be nice if neither Sheen’s behavior – nor the media’s response – reached them.
