It's over between Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller after less than two years of marriage, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
Sheen's arrest on felony domestic violence charges followed a night of arguing after a quiet trial separation of the couple, sources tell RadarOnline.com exclusively.
Mueller has now decided that she will file divorce papers in the very near future, we've learned exclusively.
After the Christmas morning incident, where Mueller told sources Charlie tried to choke her, the actor's representatives quickly moved into damage control mode. Sources close to Mueller told RadarOnline.com that Team Sheen pressured her to recant and even suggested the exact words she should use!
Late on Christmas day Mueller did recant her version of the violence -- after contact with Charlie's reps.
Mueller wants out of the marriage and has a prenuptial agreement. Sources told RadarOnline.com that money was discussed in connection with not further damaging Sheen's already tattered reputation.
Both Mueller and Sheen were partying the night before the incident and had alcohol in their systems at 8:34am when 911 was called. Sheen has been through rehab for drug and alcohol abuse.
Sheen had just flown into Aspen, where Mueller rented a house and had been spending time without him in a trial separation, sources close to both Sheen and Mueller told RadarOnline.com.
"Both of them are miserable in the marriage. That's why they were apart," a source who knows the couple told RadarOnline.com exclusively.
"Both were separately telling friends their marriage was over before this happened."
Sheen and Mueller were married on May 30, 2008. They are the parents of twin boys.
