Sheen Throws the Brooke at Mueller
They said it wouldn't last forever, and boy, were they right. After more than a year of speculation and denials that a split was imminent, actor Charlie Sheen and estranged wife Brooke Mueller finally filed their divorce petitions in court this week. On her wish list, Mueller would like primary physical and joint legal custody of their 19-month-old twins Max and Bob. The move comes hot on the heels of Sheen's wild cocaine binge in the Big Apple. According to numerous sources, the papers had been in order since May, and the separation date was listed as December 25, the date of the fateful assault where Sheen allegedly threatened Mueller with a knife. It's been an eventful year with both parties, checking in and out of rehab for drug and alcohol addictions. Although Mueller has managed to keep a low profile, the same can't be said for Sheen, who was on a paid date with a porn star when he freaked out and trashed his hotel room at the Plaza. After doing $7,000 worth of damage to his accommodations and God knows how much coke, Sheen returned to Los Angeles where he's supposedly been on death watch after going on a marathon of hookers and cocaine. While Charlie's mouthpieces maintain their client is doing just fine, it appears they're also getting support from another strange bedfellow. Mueller indicated to Extra that Sheen would come out from the controversy unscathed. Says Mueller, "Charlie is a survivor. He knows how to handle himself. You know how things get blown out of proportion." TMZ is reporting that one of the things that caused Sheen's preemptive divorce strike was Mueller's new reality show, which isn't sitting so well with Sheen. Apparently, he's the only one who's allowed to make an ass out of himself.
