Just how much does Joe Fiore support stepdaughter Brooke Mueller? So much that he's willing to tell the world about her problems in exchange (we presume) for wads of cash.
Fiore, who married Mueller's mother six years ago, spoke to Radar Online this week about the Christmas Eve altercation between Brooke and Charlie Sheen. He stands by most accounts of what happened:
"That incident in Aspen was a scary thing," Fiore said. "It does not happen a lot, but it was true, she was definitely attacked, that is not made up, there was no reason for any of that to be made up... Everything was just like it was in the police report."
Despite acknowledging the alleged threats Sheen made toward Mueller, Fiore said he fully supports his son-in-law. Referring to this weekend's SAG Awards, he said:
"I hope he wins, not because he's my son-in-law, but because I think he's great and all the same people win and Charlie should have won a long time ago [for Two and A Half Men]."
Concluding this relatively pointless interview, Fiore confirmed Brooke and Charlie's children are safe and spoke on the couple's possible future together:
"It really is up to [them]; you can't get in their head. I would like to see what ever they want. If they're both in love with each other and positive and they want to work it out that's great. We support them."
For now, Mueller has other things to worry about: she's recovering from an infection and a bout of pneumonia, following wisdom tooth surgery this week. We wish her well.
