Brooke Mueller

Charlie Sheen

Betrayed Me!

11/2/2010 6:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Brooke Mueller feels utterly betrayed by Charlie Sheen, according to her lawyer, Sorrell Trope.

Brooke Mueller divorce:
Trope tells TMZ ... when Brooke and Charlie signed a property settlement agreement back in May ... they agreed to wait a full year before officially filing for divorce.  Trope says Brooke made the agreement because "she didn't want to make trouble for Charlie," who was in the throes of a trial for allegedly assaulting Brooke in Aspen.

Trope says, "Charlie humiliated Brooke," by blindsiding her yesterday -- filing legal papers without giving her the heads up.  And, Trope says, it's especially hurtful because Brooke had been supportive of Charlie last week during his most recent trouble.

Trope notes that in Charlie's divorce papers, he suggests the couple's two kids have been living with him.  Trope says it's not true -- the kids have been living with Brooke.

UPDATE:  Charlie's manager, Mark Burg, tells TMZ, "Charlie tried to reach out to Brooke and left her a message before filing for divorce.  It's a shame that this ambulance chaser is trying to drum up more business because this divorce was finalized and agreed upon 6 months ago."

Burg added, "Shouldn't everyone involved be more concerned about the two young children?"

I think that all of this is posturing--the reasons as to why either felt this was necessary is yet to be seen.

In addition, as several others have indicated, Sorrel Trope is most certainly not an ambulance chaser but rather a highly regarded attorney.

With respect to not telling the other party before filing---not necessarily... The only situation where that scenario is almost uniformly recommended is a domestic violence situation where the filing party fears retribution.

Under California law spouses owe a fiduciary duty to each other with respect to finances. Any spouse draining accounts or hiding assets has violated that duty. That being said, the orders that restrain the spouses from any financial dealings without consent of the other spouse apply to the petitioner upon filing and to the respondent when they file their answer.

Back to that fiduciary duty thing---if one spouse has drained accounts or hidden funds and the other spouse can prove that, the winning spouse is awarded 100% of that asset regardless of whether the item is community or separate property. That spouse may also receive punitive damages and attorney/expert fees.

"Brooke Mueller -- Charlie Sheen Betrayed Me!"

I can't stop laughing...

Brooke Mueller's reality show. Now I definitely know that the world is coming to an end. She's known for nothing but marrying that goofball Charlie Sheen and popping out a couple of his kids.

I know retired neighbors who are more exciting than her, and they're better looking. LOL

He doesn't have to clear filing with this woman who was legally drunk - the police is Aspen did a blood test at the time - and then lied to police about what took place. SHE WAS OUT IN ASPEN the very next day smiling for all the paps. Clearly, she wasn't traumatized, assaulted or held at knife point the night before. I am not entirely a fan of Charlies but this woman and the last wife are opportunists that are now going to get 55k dollars a month off of him. It's a clear set up for life.

...

obviously you chose to ignore the transcript from the 9-1-1 call, the police reports and the witness statements

but hey -- why not, you're a lawyer with a high IQ, right?

When lawyers and Hollywood and gold-diggers colide, it is absolutely wonderfully grotesque! So Charlie's lawyer is calling the lawyer who got him off with 30 days in rehab and 3 months probation an "ambulance chaser"? That is classic. These people are the lowest forms of humanity, and yet Charlie is worth hundreds of millions of dollars, Brooke is receiving $50K a month and millions more on top of that, and the ambulance chasing lawyer received millions to get Charlie off scott-free. What a country!

Any woman dumb enough to marry Charlie Sheen gets what she deserves. When someone shows you who they really are believe them. Charlie is a drunk, abuser, sex freak and a lot more. The women who deal with him should already know that. He is addicted to those nasty hookers and it is a wonder his penis doesnt fall off. But believe me he will reap what he sows.

There are some real misogynists on here (that means woman haters). Charlie Sheen has been accused and convicted of spousal abuse, remember? He's the bad guy, not his wife.
