Charlie Sheen -- Coast Is Clear for Divorce

8/3/2010 10:23 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources connected with Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller tell TMZ now that Charlie's criminal case in Aspen is over, the deck has been cleared to begin divorce proceedings.

Charlie Sheen Divorce
As we first reported back in June Charlie and Brooke signed a 43-page agreement -- obtained by TMZ --  that lays out who gets what in the event they divorce ... and Brooke has made it clear ... she's not going to get less than Denise Richards.

Brooke gets $55,000 a month in child support, plus various other expenses, but, according to the docs, "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."

Brooke waives spousal support but still cashes in.  In addition to getting a 50% cut on the baby photos the couple sold to Getty Images, Brooke gets several bank accounts and a lump sum parting gift of $757,689.70.

Charlie gets the house but has to buy Brooke out to the tune of around $1 million.

Charlie also gets to keep his $5.6 mil watch collection.

According to the docs, signed by both Charlie and Brooke, they will get joint legal custody of their two kids.  Brooke gets primary physical custody and Charlie becomes a weekend dad, getting the kids on the first, third and fifth weekends of the month from Saturday at 10 AM until Monday at 10 AM.

At the end of the document, Brooke agrees "not to disclose to any media sources personal information relating to Charlie's sexual affairs or alleged drug usage."  For his part, Charlie agrees not to talk about Brooke's alleged drug use.

Sources say they were holding off until Charlie's Aspen assault case was over, fearing a divorce would give prosecutors ammo in the case.

We're told almost from the beginning, Brooke has always wanted nothing to do with the case. And now that the case is over, we're told divorce docs will soon follow.

Charlie should never get married or father children again. I really like him as a actor but that is where it stops!!

Two morons that deserved each other. Now they will go their seperate ways, and both will inflict grief on someone else.

Take warning folks: if they come near you.....RUN.

Charlie Sheen is a menace to society. How many more women will he nearly kill before he is put away for good? Any women who dates or marries this man DESERVES WHAT SHE GETS. Shame on the judge and lawyers who are letting him skate.

I could care less about Charlie or this Brooke person. Both are idiots, and apparently alcoholics and addicts. It's not the kids' fault their parents are idiots! Who's going to take care of the kids?

These actors just don't get it. Charlie, you are too old to be played. Get the help you need - which is "how to identify women who want to take you for everything you have". You think with your you-know-what instead of your brain. Oh, maybe you don't have a brain. Go visit Dorothy. She can take you to see the Wizard. You are funny on your show. Not so funny in life.

I am tired of Hollywood and all the drama of drug attics, alcoholics, divorces, etc. These people do not affect my life and I don't support them in their shows, movies etc. When it comes to the law its a joke because they do not serve their time. Maybe if they did there bwould be less idiots doing the same thing over and over again.

Charlie Sheen should not have custody of these children.......he is not mentally capable of handling these children.......why does the rich get away with drug addiction with a slap on the wrist?? the future does not look favorable for Charlie ....because of his severe addictions.

Sorry Brooke. Charlie is a nut job. We all know it. Even Charlie knows it. Charlie thrives on the drama of Charlieland. As a guy I love the guy. I feel bad for you Brooke and the kidlets. Focus on making the children comfortable around both of you together or not! Still today my adult son is uncomfortable when he is with one parent and taking to another on the phone. Not my fault. I encouraged his mom to still be part of my life as a parent. I'm sure some things were said about me. I took the high road. You and Charlie have to do the same. In the mean time keep feeding into your parasite lawyers scam. The more you fight the more they make. Isn't it wonderful?? All kidding aside these two people need to stop feeding off of the anger and start figuring out how to raise their kids as normal as possible. Kids follow their parents example.
