Charlie Sheen’s wife Brooke Mueller has ditched her wedding ring as the couple gets ready to divorce, RadarOnline.com has learned.
The mega-carat ring, reported to be 11 carats, is off Brooke Mueller’s finger for good, a source close to her told RadarOnline.com.
As we were first to report with exclusive photos last week, Brooke has moved into her own house. She is paying $16,000 a month for a Spanish-style house in Los Feliz.
The official story by both camps is that Sheen and Mueller are trying to figure out their marriage. But a source close to both of them tells RadarOnline.com that the decision to divorce has been made and both have lawyers.
Sheen is facing domestic violence charges in Colorado stemming from Christmas when Mueller called 911 and told police Sheen held a knife to her neck. That incident was started after both Sheen and Mueller relapsed, were partying and Brooke told Charlie she wanted a divorce and she was going to take the kids.
“The ring is off for good,” the source told RadarOnline.com. “Brooke has had enough. Charlie has cheated on her repeatedly and lied to her about it. That’s what she’s told people close to her.
“The marriage is a disaster.”
Charlie and Brooke will not announce their divorce until after his criminal situation is resolved, the source says. He is also negotiating a new contract for his hit show Two and a Half Men and is asking for $2 million an episode.
Brooke and Charlie both have been in rehab for alcohol and crack. And their marriage has been wild and volatile, with both relapsing and also inviting other sexual partners into their relationship together.
But when Sheen was photographed with another woman while wearing a ridiculous disguise, Mueller flipped out. At first she moved back home from rehab and then packed up and moved out.
“This marriage was a disaster from the start,” the source said. “Brooke didn’t want to give up. She likes being Charlie’s wife. But he humiliated her by cheating on her and that was the final straw.”
