Charlie Sheen has defended his ex-wife Brooke Mueller after she was arrested for possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, insisting she would "never" resort to dealing drugs.
The troubled reality TV star was taken into custody in Aspen, Colorado on Friday (02Dec11) on suspicion of third degree assault and cocaine possession following a scuffle at a nightclub.
She was also booked on possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, but Sheen is adamant Mueller would never sell drugs - because he pays her more than $50,000 (£31,000) per month to look after their twin sons.
He tells Tmz.com, "C'mon, with the child support I pay her? She's going to deal drugs? Never going to happen. Never going to happen."
Sheen reveals Mueller was in "really good spirits" after they talked on Tuesday (06Dec11), and insists he has no plans to alter their child custody arrangements following her arrest.
He adds, "The kids are doing great. I talked to Brooke last night, she's doing great... We're interested in co-parenting. The kids need two parents. You know, Brooke's been through the same stuff I've been through. She's doing her best. She's in really good spirits."
