Robbie and Claudine plan move next door to Charlie Sheen

CHARLIE SHEEN may soon have two and a half Keanes arriving on his LA doorstep.

Golden soccer couple Robbie and Claudine Keane are looking to set up home in an exclusive celebrity neighbourhood, beside Charlie Sheen and Paris Hilton.

The Irish captain, his wife Claudine and baby Robert have been on a house-hunt since moving over to LA and may have found the perfect neighbourhood to settle in.

The Herald can reveal how the soccer ace and his glamorous other half looked at a multi-million euro house in the exclusive gated community Mulholland Estates in Sherman Oaks, only doors up from actor Charlie Sheen and heiress Paris Hilton.

Sheen bought the luxury house in Beverly Hills for more than €7m earlier this year and is based two houses up from 33-year-old socialite Paris, who splashed out more than €6m on her five-bedroom home.

Now the Keanes are considering buying in the same area to take advantage of the privacy in the neighbourhood, which is patrolled by security guards closed to the public.

"Robbie and Claudine have been looking for the perfect house since they moved over to LA last August," said a source.

"He has obviously been really busy with his career so has left a lot of the house hunting to Claudine.

"She's really into interior design so is really keen to find them and Robbie Jnr (two) the perfect home. She has looked at a couple of places but none of them really caught her eye until she found this one particular house on the same street as Charlie Sheen.

"She says it's absolutely amazing but they want to be 100pc sure before they take the plunge."

Previous residents in the luxurious community include Christina Aguilera and basketball superstar Shaquille O'Neal.

Former Miss Ireland finalist Claudine jetted back to her home country last weekend to cheer on her other half as he led the boys in green into the Euro 2012 finals.

She and her mum Joan as well as brother Ronan joined in the raucous celebrations in Krystle as the champagne corks were popping until the early hours of the morning.

But while her LA Galaxy star husband had to fly back to the US to play in the MLS cup final on Sunday, she stayed on in Europe to fulfil work commitments.

The blonde beauty, who was looking super-svelte during her trip back home to Dublin, has been inundated with lucrative job offers in the States as well.


She recently revealed how E! Entertainment contacted her last week for a meeting to discuss possibly doing an 'at home' series with the petite mum-of-one.

Before moving stateside, lingerie-model Claudine had been offered a string of reality shows including ITV's Dancing On Ice and I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here! But she turned them all down so she could concentrate on being a new mum. But now that her son is a little bit older, she has indicated that she would love to step into the spotlight more. The Keanes moved to Los Angeles in August after Robbie signed with the LA Galaxy soccer team. He plays alongside stars such as David Beckham and Landon Donovan on the high-profile team.
