Sheen and ex reach child custody agreement

According to a number of media reports, actor Charlie Sheen and his ex-wife have finalized their child custody agreement regarding their twin boys.

A source told E! News that the case has been settled, although no details of the agreement were revealed.

E! reports that the attorneys for Sheen and his former wife, Brooke Mueller, met with L.A. Superior Court Judge Hank Goldberg and after the meeting, the June 9 hearing was taken off the calendar.

“Brooke and Charlie’s attorneys are confident that a settlement can be reached before June 9, and it’s almost a done deal,” someone close to the situation told a prominent gossip news site. “There are a few very minor details to work out, but both sides are expected to tell the judge that the matter has been settled ahead of time.”

The news source reports that neither lawyer responded to requests for comment and a representative of Sheen’s declined to speak on the matter.

The news source reports that the actor pays both Mueller and actress Denise Richards $55,000 a month in child support.

McCourts file requests in Dodgers divorce

Jamie McCourt, the ex-wife of Los Angeles Dodgers owner Frank McCourt, has asked a judge to order the sale of the baseball team.

Jamie claimed that her former husband mismanaged the team after firing her as club CEO in 2009, according to The Associated Press.

Frank has a request of his own for Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon, asking that he approve the club’s lucrative television contract or prevent Jamie from interfering in the deal.

Gordon set a date of June 22 to hear both of the issues.

However, the Los Angeles Times reports that may be too late for the Dodgers because Major League Baseball, which is already running the club, could seize the team if it fails to meet May 31 payroll.

“If [Frank] doesn’t make payroll, it’s over,” a person close to MLB Commissioner Bud Selig told the news source.

The television contract is reportedly worth more than $3 billion and would likely solve many of the club’s financial problems, reports the Times.

Jamie is claiming partial ownership of the Dodgers in one of the largest asset division cases in the U.S. in recent years.
