The “divorce watch” countdown is apparently ticking on Charlie Sheen and his new bride, Brooke Mueller. Charlie had barely extricated himself from his last marriage with whack job Denise Richards before announcing his engagement to Brooke, whom he married this summer. While Brooke is currently pregnant with twins, sources say the couple is not getting along and Brooke has left town to seek emotional support from her mom.
With twin baby boys on the way, Charlie Sheen and his new wife, Brooke Mueller, should be enjoying one of the happiest times in their lives. Instead, their five-month marriage is being tested.
“Charlie and Brooke are going through a rough patch,” an insider says. “They are arguing a lot.”
Brooke, 31, is so shook up over Charlie, she needed a little getaway to relax and de-stress. A close friend says she might have flown to Palm Beach, Fla. to stay with her mother Moira Fiore. “I’m not saying that she’s not here,” Moira tells In Touch. “I really can’t say anything.”
Another source says that Brooke has been hard to reach. “I have not talked to her at all. Her voice mail is full and she hasn’t been in touch with anyone.”
According to a source, Brooke is worried that Charlie, 43, who has battled many demons, might be slipping back to some of his bad-boy behaviors since they’ve announced having the babies.
“Charlie has intimacy issues sometimes,” an insider says. “After getting too close with anyone, he retreats.”

Well, it would not be the first time one of Charlie’s wives left him while pregnant. Denise “Crazy Eyes” Richards filed for divorce while pregnant with their second daughter, Lola. I really can’t imagine why anyone would marry Charlie Sheen. The man has issues. Maybe Brooke thought she could change him. But guess what? That never works out. Who wants to bet that the marriage will be over by the time Brooke delivers those babies?
