Los Angeles - Charlie 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, the former Two and a Half Men actor 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.
He added: "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".
