The two mums were called to court in Los Angeles on Thursday (07Nov13) for a mandatory meeting with Department of Children and Family Services medical director Dr. Charles Sophy, following reports suggesting that one-time Bond girl Richards was seeking psychiatric evaluations for Mueller's four year olds, who she has been looking after while their mum sought rehab help for an ongoing drug abuse problem.
Mueller was stripped of custody following a May (13) drug bust, which prompted her latest rehab stint, but Richards has become increasingly aware of the boys' alleged behavioural issues and she recently reached out to officials at the Dcfs, revealing she can no longer take care of them because they have started harming her pet dogs and bullying her daughters.
Richards expressed fears that the twins' bad behaviour is linked to the time they spend with their mother, suggesting they frequently turn violent after returning from visits with her.
Mueller reportedly refused to allow Bob and Max to be evaluated as she fights to regain full custody of her sons - a move which has infuriated their father, Sheen. He was also reportedly invited to join his two ex-wives in court on Thursday but was a no-show, according to Tmz.com.
Sources tell the website Mueller and Richards were cordial towards one another during the four hour showdown, but their problems have not been resolved. Reports suggest Dcfs social workers will now intervene and assess.
Dr. Sophy will also be able to stay abreast of the situation - sources tell Tmz he lives in the same exclusive gated community which Sheen, Mueller and Richards all call home.
