Charlie Sheen and his wife of two and a half years, Brooke Mueller, filed for divorce yesterday. Mueller stayed with Sheen when all he got her for Christmas was threats of violence, but apparently her unhappiness with his rampant and unabashed use of cocaine and prostitutes was too much for Sheen to tolerate. Women. Can’t live with ’em, am I right?
Citing “irreconcilable differences,” Sheen is seeking joint legal and physical custody of twins Bob and Max, 19 months; Mueller responded by filing for primary physical custody and joint legal custody.
The couple — who wed in May 2008 — got into a violent fight last Christmas when Sheen reportedly threatened her with a knife. (Sheen pled guilty on lesser charges and spent time in rehab, not jail, for the offense.) Both husband and wife spent time earlier this year in rehab for alcohol and drug addictions. [Us Weekly]
Obviously, I’m not a lawyer, but I’d never realized that “irreconcilable differences” was the legal term for “whores.” I guess now Charlie will finally be able to let loose and have some fun.
