Sheen's Wife Can't Handle the Tooth
A toothache has extended the headache for troubled couple Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller. The restraining order against Sheen won't be removed Wednesday, but something else will. The Two and a Half Men star's estranged wife Brooke Mueller was forced to undergo an emergency wisdom tooth extraction, followed by 72 hours of bed rest. The dental procedure delayed the highly anticipated Aspen court date by two days. Both Sheen and Mueller must appear in person for their day in court on Friday. According to People, the 32-year-old real estate agent is anxious to have the restraining order preventing Sheen from seeing her lifted. Mueller's attorney Yale Galanter says his client wants the no-contact clause canned. Says Galanter, "Even though a court order has prohibited Charlie from being around Brooke, she wants her husband to see his kids as often as he likes. And the kids have seen their father several times. Brooke and Charlie will each be in court Friday morning, but they will not come to Aspen from Los Angeles together." The hearing is related to the 44-year-old's arrest on Christmas where he allegedly threatened to kill his wife. He was booked on suspicion of felony menacing, second-degree assault and criminal mischief. Initially, Mueller wanted to take part in the hearing via telephone; however, the judge maintained he wanted both parties front and center for the proceedings. Unfortunately, their time in court will probably be further delayed - it was reported Wednesday that Mueller's oral surgery didn't go so smoothly. She's now in the intensive care unit with a severe infection. "Brooke is in the hospital ICU related to the surgery for her impacted wisdom tooth," her lawyer Yale Galanter tells People. "They are trying to get the infection and fever under control. The infection has spread." Sheen has been to visit his wife, which apparently is OK, according to the terms of the restraining order. "Charlie can have contact with his wife as long as she's in the hospital," said his rep, Stan Rosenfield.
