Charlie Sheen has lost his custody battle against estranged wife Brooke Mueller.
The troubled actor - who had hoped to win primary legal and physical custody of two-year-old twins Bob and Max after Brooke refused to take a drug test last Friday and entered rehab - had his plea rejected by judge Hank Goldberg at the Stanley Mosk Courthouse in Los Angeles today.
According to RadarOnline.com Brooke - who attended court - seemed "unsteady on her feet" and "glassy-eyed" at the hearing, but smiled as she left, while former 'Two and a Half Men' star Charlie - who is currently on his Violent Torpedo of Truth/ Defeat is Not an Option tour - only added: "No comment."
The decision maintains the situation decided in court on March 10, which sees Brooke have majority custody of Bob and Max while Sheen will be allowed to spend time with them every other weekend from Saturday morning until Sunday evening for the first two months.
For the following two months, he will have the children every other weekend from Saturday morning to Monday morning. After that - provided both he and Brooke stay alcohol and drug free - he will have them an additional Wednesday morning through to Thursday morning.
Brooke's mother, socialite Moira Fiore, is thought to be providing primary care for the boys while the 33 year old is in an unnamed rehabilitation facility after reportedly relapsing into crack cocaine addiction last week.
