Following in the Christmas morning blowup between Charlie Sheen and wife Brooke Mueller, at least one family member is already taking sides in the dispute — even as the couple try to resolve their differences on their own.

“It’s a sad situation on everybody’s part,” Charlie’s uncle Joe Estevez tells E! News. “Everybody wishes it didn’t happen. Hopefully everyone can move on positively.”

However, not everything Joe has to say is all that nice. “There’s just as much chance of her being a drama queen as of what she’s saying being true,” He says. “Maybe he was angry — maybe that’s true and maybe it was an embellishment. Let’s give the couple the benefit of the doubt. I think it’s much ado about nothing… If they were any other couple in the world, it would be gone and forgotten. Because it was Charlie and Brooke, they’re taking it to the max.”

Joe, who admits he’s never met Brooke and hasn’t spoken to Charlie in months, still his nephew, “is a good, sweet man, and I think sometimes you let energy in that you shouldn’t. Sometimes you’re a little too trusting. Charlie should be on his guard a little bit more.”
