According to reports, Charlie Sheen went ballistic and grabbed a knife when Brooke Mueller said she wanted a divorce on Christmas Eve.
Therefore, we can understand why a source close to the couple wishes to remain anonymous when he/she says:
"Brooke and Charlie still love each other, but they are very different. [They] will make their best effort at counseling, [but] divorce is definitely a possibility."
Couldn't anything be considered a definite possibility? Proper grammar aside, this insider confirms to People that the couple isn't giving up on one another just yet.
"For the good of the children they definitely want to see if counseling will help before anything further is decided."
The Two and a Half Men star is currently back in Los Angeles, awaiting a February court date. There's no word yet on how these charges will affect Sheen's status on that awful sitcom.
Mueller, meanwhile, remains in Aspen and was spotted at a popular, local hot spot this week. Witnesses say she and friends "just hung out and listened to music." But has the final note on her marriage already been played?
Time will tell.
