Charlie Sheen Seeks Divorce from Brooke Mueller

Charlie SheenCiting irreconcilable differences, actor Charlie Sheen has asked a court to dissolve his marriage to Brooke Mueller, who filed her own divorce petition just hours after her estranged husband lodged his request in Los Angeles.

Sheen is asking for joint custody of his and Mueller’s twin sons, but prayed to the court that he be spared of providing spousal support to his third wife. Mueller, on the other hand, said in her court filing that she wants sole custody of their 19-month old twins. She also asked the court for spousal support. Both Sheen and Mueller said in their separate petitions that they have been separated since Christmas last year, when the actor was accused of assaulting his real estate investor wife.

The divorce filings came just days after Sheen, whose marriages to Donna Peele and Denise Richards also ended in divorce, was brought to a hospital after trashing his New York hotel room, where the 45-year-old actor was reportedly with a porn star.
