Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller have taken a major step toward their legal divorce, RadarOnline.com has confirmed.
The couple inked a 41-page agreement on the terms of a settlement for their split.
In it, the couple agree to share joint legal custody of their two children: Brooke will have primary custody, while the Two and a Half Men star will become dad on the first, third and fifth weekends of each month.
Brooke will also get $55,000 a month in child support.
She also receive a $757,689.70 lump sum.
RadarOnline.com has learned the agreement is a significant step for the troublesome couple who had been negotiating their split for some time.
It also paves the way for final divorce papers to be filed in court — a move that could occur soon — now that Brooke’s buy-out has been sealed.
Despite reports and denials otherwise, RadarOnline.com was the first to report that the couple was divorcing following the fallout of his Christmas Day incident in Aspen when he threatened her with a knife.
“They are not seeking a divorce nor has one been contemplated,” representatives for both Sheen and Mueller said in a joint statement, even after Brooke had moved out of their family home with no plans to return.
Sources previously told RadarOnline.com that both parties wanted to keep the divorce announcement under wraps until Sheen’s contract negotiations for Two and a Half Men were completed and until his criminal case in Colorado was over.
Despite having signed a detailed pre-nup with Sheen, Brooke has been obsessed with getting the same deal- if not a better one- that Denise Richards received in her high-profile divorce from the actor. RadarOnline.com reported in May that Sheen and Mueller had reached a secret financial divorce deal. “It’s not everything she wanted. It’s not even close. But it’s enough,” a friend said.
