Brooke Mueller and Charlie Sheen Getting Divorced: What's in the Settlement?MariaLianos
It’s finally over for Brooke Mueller and Charlie Sheen.
The couple filed for divorce from one another on Monday. According to sources who have obtained the divorce documents, Brooke will walk away with a child support and cash.
Mueller and Sheen receive joint legal custody of their twin sons. Brooke gets primary physical custody, while Charlie gets visitation rights.
Mueller will receive $55,000 a month in child support. The document ensures that she’ll never receive less money than Sheen doles out to Denise Richards to support her and their daughters. Their children, Bob and Max will get $27,500 a month each until they turn 18.
Mueller will receive $757,000 in cash. Other reports say Brooke will walk away with nearly $2 million cash. At first, she’ll receive $757,000, and then Sheen will then drop another $1.25 million into Mueller’s accounts, half the value of their marital home in Beverly Hills. One report says that Sheen will keep the family home but must pay Brooke around $1 million for it.
Mueller’s mom, Moira Fiore, said, “If you asked Brooke, she’d say she’d rather have a normal marriage in which her children are being raised by two parents, rather than having the money.”
This official split comes a week after Sheen was discovered passed out in a NYC hotel room, supposedly high on cocaine and definitely in the presence of Capri Anderson.
Sheen rakes in $1.25 million per 30-minute episode of the CBS show, according to TV Guide, making him the highest-paid actor on television.
Fiore said last week’s episode convinced Mueller to end the marriage once and for all.
“She kept thinking he’d change,” Fiore said. “But he won’t. When he does drugs, he just becomes crazy. He loses control. I guess what happened in New York last week validated before the entire world that my daughter told the truth.”
The divorce settlement also calls for Mueller to be the primary caretaker of the twins, with a strict visitation schedule for Sheen.
“Actually, Charlie hasn’t seen the kids in three weeks,” Fiore said. “When he’s around, the nanny brings them to him for a few hours.”
