Charlie Sheen sends third wife packing
Charlie Sheen has filed to end his marriage to his third wife and stated in documents that the couple separated the same day as a Christmas 2009 altercation that led to assault charges against the veteran actor.
The divorce came less than a week after the Two and a Half Men star was briefly hospitalised in New York City after security at a luxury hotel reported he was being disorderly.
Sheen cited irreconcilable differences for the divorce and indicated in court filings on Monday in Los Angeles that the couple have a prenuptial agreement. He and Brooke Mueller Sheen were married in May 2008 and have twin sons together.
Within hours, Brooke Sheen had filed her own petition for divorce, seeking sole custody of the former couple's sons and spousal support.
