Brooke Mueller saw her almighty custody battle with her ex-husband, the actor Charlie Sheen, escalate even further when she accused another of Sheen's ex-wife's, Denise Richards, of abusing not only Mueller's children but her own daughters too. Mueller, 36, called the police alleging that her twin sons, Max and Bob were being abused by Richards, 42, along with Sheen and Richards' two young daughters, Sam and Lola Rose.

According to TMZ's law enforcement sources, cops arrived at Denise's door on Tuesday night and told her they were there to question her about a child abuse claim lodged by Brooke. However, Denise did not let them inside because her daughters were there. Instead, Denise went outside and informed the officers that Mueller's claims were "ridiculous" and "vindictive."

She also said that the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services was handling the issues that started after Mueller, who has battled drug and alcohol problems in the past, was stripped of her child cutody. If there has been no abuse, Brooke's latest claim will have poisonous consequences, because all the children will be grilled about the allegations, which could prove to be emotionally traumatising.

The claim is being regarded as suspicious because Mueller is not known to have had any contact with Denise and Sheen's daughters and Richards has argued that she hasn't seen Max and Bob for weeks. The 4-year-old twins are said to be currently living in a house down the street from Richards with their maternal uncle as their temporary guardian.

However, the NY Daily News reports that one of the boys recently complained that a male member of Richards' staff "hit" them. The boys' psychologist heard the claim and had no choice legally but to report it to child welfare officials last week, according to a source.

Richards had initially been a full-time carer for the boys since Mueller's rehab stint in May, she stepped down from the role claiming they were too violent around her daughters. The boys were seeing a psychologist apparently because it was suspected that they might have undiagnosed fetal alcohol syndrome.

Mueller is now living in her own Beverly Hills home and is said to be seeking custodial rights to her sons.
