Just as it appears Prince William is about to tie the knot, and Rupert Friend may finally suck it up and pop the question to Keira Knightley… another celebrity couple is finalizing its divorce.

Yes, it’s true. Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen are officially single.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Marjorie Steinberg has approved their dissolution of marriage, effective as of November 17.

The couple will share joint visitation rights of their two children, Sam, 2, and Lola, 1.

Sheen and Richards were married in a Catholic ceremony at the home of a Spin City producer on June 15, 2002 (Sheen starred on the popular show for two years after Michael J. Fox left).

It was Richards first and Sheen’s second marriage. The couple met filming the movie Good Advice in 2001.

While their separation was ugly, the two have warmed a bit in recent months, with Sheen going as far as to say that he “digs” Denise’s new man, Richie Sambora. Richards filed for divorce citing “irreconcilible differences” when she pregnant with their second child.

THG NOTE: “Irreconcilable differences” is code for “Charlie Sheen is really addicted to drugs and sex with prostitutes, and I need a restraining order.”
