Exclusive Interview: Stuart Slotnick talks Charlie Sheen custody case
Charlie Sheen has been blowin’ it up these past few weeks, keeping anything but a low profile. As a result, we’ve learned a lot about him that we didn’t really know before. We’ve also learned knew phrases like “winning” and “tiger-blood.” Hell, he’s even brought “duh” back into the vernacular.
But what about Charlie Sheen‘s custody case with ex Brooke Mueller? With Masheen’s crack-head-esque antics, it’s hard to see “winning” in his future- at least on that front.
Recently I had the chance to chat once more with Stuart Slotnick, defense attorney and Managing Partner of Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney, about the future of this likely messy child custody case….
STELLA: What typically goes on in child custody cases; What’s the motivating factor?
STELLA: Recent reports say that Brooke wants to use Charlie’s webcasts against him in the custody battle, is this possible?
STELLA: Do celebrity custody disputes usually last longer than general custody disputes?
SLOTNICK: They are very fact intensive.
STELLA: What happens if both Charlie and Brooke are proven unable to properly care for their children?
SLOTNICK: There is no general rule.
Unfortunately, it seems there’s no clear ending to the custody dispute. Things certainly get a little more complicated in celebrity cases, since their life is lived, in large part, under the public eye.
Still, since authorities have already removed Sheen’s kids from his care and Brooke has already served him with a restraining order, things are becoming increasingly messy.
