Actor Charlie Sheen decided to anticipate his legal separation from his wife Brooke Mueller and filed for divorce before it could become material to be featured on her upcoming reality show.
Brooke and Charlie signed a 43-page property settlement document back in May of 2010, in which they agreed on the division of assets and on the joint legal custody and Brooke’s primary physical custody with visitation rights of their twin boys.
Brooke will be getting $55,000 a month in child support, a parting gift of $757,689.70 and another $1 million for Charlie to keep their family home. Charlie also gets to keep his $5.6 million watch collection.
According to documents signed by Charlie and Brooke, the couple separated on December 25, 2009, the day Charlie was arrested for domestic violence in Aspen. There’s also a clause that states, “Under no circumstances shall the child support paid by Charlie for Bob and Max be less than the child support paid by Charlie to Denise Richards for Sam and Lola.”
Brooke, who claims to have always supported Charlie, feels betrayed by Charlie since they allegedly initially agreed they would wait a full year to officially file for divorce. Charlie’s early divorce completely ruins Brooke’s plan to cash in on their situation in her future reality show.
Brooke’s lawyer, Sorrell Trope, claims “Charlie humiliated Brooke,” by blindsiding her with divorce. Charlie’s manager, Mark Burg, told TMZ, “Charlie tried to reach out to Brooke and left her a message before filing for divorce. It’s a shame that this ambulance chaser is trying to drum up more business because this divorce was finalized and agreed upon 6 months ago.”
