UK Today News: Charlie Sheen Files For Divorce From Third Wife Brooke Mueller
Actor Charlie Sheen has officially filed for divorce from third wife Brooke Mueller, who is living apart from Sheen since last Christmas. Sheen quoted ‘irreconcilable differences’ as the reason for his divorce appeal.
The couple’s marriage came into distress on the eve of Christmas 2009, when Sheen threatened Mueller with a knife while they were at their holiday home in Aspen, Colorado. The actor was arrested under the domestic violence offence.
Later on, the offence was reduced to the misdemeanor third degree assault count after he pleaded guilty, and he later went to a Malibu rehab center for 30 days.
Sheen and Mueller got married in May, 2008 and started living separately from December 25, 2009.
The petition for divorce has been filed with the Los Angeles County Superior Court, where the actor also asked for the physical custody of his sons, Bob and Max Sheen. Mueller, on the other hand, wants sole custody of the kids.
