1. Charlie Sheen’s ex wife Denise Richards is – not for the first time – looking after the twin boys of his other ex wife Brooke Mueller.
Richards, who was married to Sheen from 2002 until 2006, reportedly has temporary custody of the children Sheen had with his second wife, Brooke Mueller.
Mueller and Sheen were married from 2008 until 2011.

The twin boys – four-year-old Bob and Max – were reportedly removed from the custody of their mother on Thursday night, when the Department of Children and Family Services decided their home was an ‘unsafe environment’ due to drug use.
Richards had two daughters while married to Sheen – Sam and Lola – and adopted a third daughter, Eloise, after they separated. When Mueller was in rehab in 2010, Richards also stepped in to help care for the two little boys.
Back in 2010, Richards said, “This is not the first time I’ve had all five, they’re Sam and Lola’s brothers. It was a full house, lots of love and life. Brooke knows anytime, and Charlie, that any time they need help with the boys, that I’m there.”
A spokesperson for Charlie Sheen has said, “Charlie supports the actions of the Department of Children and Family Services. He knows Max and Bob are safe in a stable, loving environment with Denise and the boys’ sisters.”
All we have to say about this is: Bravo, Denise Richards. What a woman.
2. Bradley Cooper has mocked his ex, Jennifer Aniston, on Saturday Night Live. This is what he said.
3. Former child actor Mark Lester – and close friend of deceased pop star Michael Jackson – has claimed that he is the biological father of Prince Michael (16), Paris (15) and Blanket (11).
Lester, who appeared in Oliver!, says that back in 1995, Jackson broached the subject of fertility with him, enquiring into his virility. Men talk about these things too, apparently. A year later, Jackson asked that Lester donate sperm for him. Lester agreed, and says that he never thought anything more of it. Until now, that is.
What’s more, Lester is even willing to undergo DNA testing to prove that he is the biological father – but only if the kids want him to. Lester last saw Prince Michael, Paris and Blanket at their father’s funeral in 2009.
Lester told The Daily Mail, “I wouldn’t have a DNA test without the children’s permission but when the children come of age, and it’s not far away, and they decide they want me to do it then I will.
“It is up to them. I don’t want to tell them what to do. I just want to reconnect and be the godfather that Michael made me … My 18-year-old daughter Olivia looks like Paris. People have also pointed out similarities between myself when I was younger and Prince Michael.”
