Charlie Sheen will officially regain his single status in May when a judge signs off on his divorce from Brooke Mueller.
The former couple’s relationship began unravelling after a Christmas Day bust-up in 2009, which left the Two And A Half Men star facing criminal charges.

Mueller and Sheen subsequently split and the troubled actor filed to end their two-year marriage in November.

Lawyers for both parties filed final legal papers in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Thursday and the divorce decree will be granted on 2 May, according to

Sheen and Mueller will share joint custody of their twin sons Max and Bob, although the real estate investor will be given primary physical custody and receive $55,000 in child support.

The actor will keep the family home in California and pay Mueller $1 million in exchange for her share of the property.

The divorce news comes after a tumultuous few months for Sheen – he’s currently undergoing rehab treatment at home after allegedly indulging in a wild night of partying, which ended with the actor in hospital for a hernia.
