When Brooke Mueller and Charlie Sheen got into a domestic dispute on Christmas Eve, it was mostly Charlie, the well-compensated star of CBS show Two and a Half Men, who took the fall. The 44-year-old actor was arrested on charges of second degree assault, menacing, and criminal mischief on Dec. 25.
And while Charlie’s history of bad behavior and rocky relationships is very public, Brooke, 32, has had her own share of troubles in the past. But who is Brook Mueller?
The Palm Beach Post reports that Charlie and Brooke, who were introduced in 2006 by Rebecca Gayheart, “were absolutely clean and sober after they separately battled drugs and alcohol,” according to Brooke’s mom, socialite Moira Fiore. Brooke was working in real estate when she met Charlie. Her attempted acting career was fairly unsuccessful.
“Mueller was known to be quite at ease at wild house parties,” reports The Palm Beach Post . Brooke also attended high-society private school The Benjamin School in Palm Beach, FL, where she was a cheerleader.
HollywoodLife.com sources say that Brooke has a diva attitude as well. At Kari Feinstein’s Emmy Awards gifting suite in September, she requested a diamond-and-gold-Hershey’s Kiss necklace, but was offered a silver necklace instead. The source says Mueller was furious, and yelled, “I know [Charlie’s ex-wife] Denise Richards was here earlier, and she has a diamond necklace.”
Mueller married Charlie in May 2008, and they have two twin sons, both nine-months-old, named Max and Bob.
