Charlie Sheen’s wife Brooke Mueller wants a divorce after his court case for domestic violence is over, RadarOnline.com is reporting exclusively.
Despite the fact that both Charlie and Brooke’s reps have publicly said they want to work things out, sources who know both of them say it’s actually the exact opposite – both are miserable.
Brooke left two rehab facilities within recent weeks and is doing rehab at home according to her lawyer -- the latest chapter in the bizarre saga of her drug and alcohol addiction that has been covered up by her reps.
As RadarOnline.com was first to report, Brooke is being treated for crack addiction and alcoholism. She has been in rehab more than five times over the years.
Sheen is also in rehab and before he went in he was visited at home by the Department of Children and Family Services. While his reps described that visit as routine (and an outgrowth of the Colorado domestic violence case) it still scared Charlie.
The Two and a Half Men star has been using coke and boozing for months, RadarOnline.com reported exclusively, and he spent his first few day in rehab detoxing.
Drugs, alcohol, rehab and an upcoming domestic violence trial in Aspen form the framework of a marriage that insiders tell RadarOnline.com is “beyond awful.”
“Brooke wants out. She’s said it before and she’s saying it again right now,” a source close the situation told RadarOnline.com. “She’s worried though, because Charlie has a lot of dirt on her. Using drugs while raising children is obviously a horrible situation.”
When RadarOnline.com reported two weeks ago that Charlie was told to go to rehab Team Sheen loudly denounced that report. But shortly after that, Sheen checked into rehab.
Public pronouncements by reps of both Sheen and Mueller about keeping the marriage together are equally disingenuous, says the source.
“The marriage is a nightmare,” said the source. “But each one is worried about ways the other one can hurt them. For Charlie, he’s terrified Brooke can help Colorado prosecutors send him to jail. For Brooke, she knows Charlie knows all the dirt about her drug and alcohol use.”
That mutual fear has kept them together so far, but Brooke has decided enough is enough, says the source.
“She can’t take it anymore,” the source told RadarOnline.com. “Remember, the Christmas day incident that ended with Charlie’s arrest started when she told him she wanted a divorce.
“Things didn’t get magically better after that.”
