Charlie Sheen on 'Today': 'At this moment, I do not know where my children are.'

Posted on

In another Today interview, Charlie Sheen confirmed to NBC’s Jeff Rossen that police came to his house last night, just as his two twin sons were being put to sleep, and removed them from his house, fulfilling a court order that the boys’ mother, Brooke Mueller, had attained yesterday, claiming Sheen’s home was not a proper environment for children. Sheen was composed, but admitted “At this moment, I do not know where my children are.”

Sheen denied charges that he had recently threatened Mueller’s life, and invited anyone to observe his unorthodox homelife to assure that it’s a safe and loving environment for his kids. “There’s nothing to hide,” he said. “There’s nothing but love and compassion and absolute support for these amazing children.” The entire interview is after the jump.

Since a restraining order prevents Sheen from coming within 100 feet of Mueller and his sons, he accepted Rossen’s offer to address his estranged wife through the camera: “Brooke, I’m sorry that you felt this had to be done in this way, but this does not display any responsible parenting in anything that I’m familiar with. I think that cooler and smarter and leveler heads can prevail, and I urge you to reach out to me immediately, if not sooner, and tell me where our sons are.”

Sheen’s lawyer, Mark Gross, revealed that he wouldn’t be arguing Sheen’s case in court today, but he expected to respond later this week. Meanwhile, Sheen promised to fight for the return of his children: “If anybody thought my focus was directed in a radical capacity [before], that’s going to seem like child’s play.”
