Charlie Sheen granted a divorce
A judge has granted Charlie Sheen and his wife Brooke a divorce, but it will be a few months before the pair are legally single.
Court records show the couple's divorce was granted in Los Angeles on Thursday, but they will not be officially divorced until May 2.
The actor and his wife each filed for divorce on the same day in November, but Charlie Sheen's petition was used by the court.
Divorces in California can only become official once six months have passed.
The Two And A Half Men star and Brooke married in May 2008 and split on Christmas Day 2009, the same day the actor was accused of domestic violence against his then-wife.
The judgment was first reported by celebrity website TMZ.
