Charlie Sheen, Brooke Mueller Divorce Is Granted
Check out what Brooke Mueller will get.
It's a major development in the Charlie Sheen saga: Thursday in Los Angeles, he and Brooke Mueller each filed the final papers necessary for their divorce. However, we've learned why the Charlie Sheen divorce isn't considered final just yet...plus read what Brooke Mueller scored in the settlement.
TMZ reports (via "Us") that Thursday, Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller filed their final divorce papers at L.A. County Superior Court. We can't say the divorce is final, however, until May 1 because California law states a divorce can't be finalized until six months after the initial papers were filed (which Charlie Sheen executed on Nov. 1, 2010).

So technically, Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller are still married; but the judge has granted the divorce and worked out how they'll split their properties. Ready? From "Us":
According to divorce settlement documents, the pair will share joint custody of nearly 22-month-old twins Bob and Max, although Mueller will have primary physical custody. Mueller will receive a lump sum of $757,698.70, along with $1 million for her share of the family home, which Sheen will keep, and $55,000 a month in child support.
You read that right: $55,000 a month. Why the chunk sum? The settlement specifies: "Under no circumstances shall the child support paid by Charlie for Bob and Max be less than the child support paid by Charlie to Denise Richards for Sam and Lola.".
