LOS ANGELES – Charlie Sheen filed to end his marriage to his third wife yesternday 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 hospitalized 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 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.
He is seeking joint custody, but is asking a judge not to award his wife any spousal support.
Within hours, Brooke Sheen had filed her own petition for divorce, seeking sole custody of the former couple’s sons and spousal support. Her filing did not offer any additional details, but also cited Christmas as the date of separation.
The divorce was first reported yesterday by People magazine’s website.
Sheen, 45, pleaded guilty in Aspen, Colo., in August to misdemeanor third-degree assault after a Christmas Day altercation with Mueller Sheen. He listed the couple’s separation date as the date of the fight.
