Charlie Sheen: Brooke Is Not a Drug Dealer

Brooke Mueller and Charlie SheenCharlie Sheen claims Brooke Mueller would "never" be a drug dealer.

Despite the reality TV star being charged with assault and intent to distribute drugs when she was arrested in Aspen, Colorado, last weekend, Sheen maintains Brooke wouldn't need to sell illegal substances because of the generous child support he gives her for their two-year-old twin sons Bob and Max. Charlie - who is believed to give Brooke somewhere in the region of $55,000 per month in child maintenance - told TMZ, "With the child support I give her ... she's gonna deal drugs? Never gonna happen."

Meanwhile, the troubled star admitted the former couple are considering sharing custody of their sons, who are currently primarily in Brooke's care. "We're interested in co-parenting ... the kids need two parents." However, Brooke is hoping to have the charges against her dropped. Her representative Steve Honig insists lawyer Yale Galanter will "vigorously defend Brooke with the goal of having all charges dropped once the facts of the case come to light."

Madonna‘s alleged stalker claims he won’t stop pursuing her until he meets the singer.

Retired fire-fighter Robert Linhart, who has been arrested twice since Saturday, was arraigned in court yesterday on charges of criminal mischief, graffiti and being in possession of a homemade 7.5 inch ice pick, after writing messages to the pop superstar on the pavement outside her apartment in Upper West Side, New York City.

The messages read “Meet me please,” “Tell me yes or no,” and “If it’s yes, my dream will come true. If it’s no, I will go.”

According to court documents, he reportedly told officers after his arrest on Tuesday, “I can be here. This is police brutality. I have a right to do this. I am not doing anything wrong. I keep running into Madonna. I saw her in 1992 and I’d actually like to meet her in person. I won’t stop until I actually meet Madonna. I’m going to go right back there and do it again.”

This followed his earlier arrest on Saturday, where he played loud music out of his car and was charged with resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and criminal possession of a weapon.
