Brooke Mueller and Charlie Sheen had an extremely tumultuous relationship that was on-again-off-again and riddled with legal issues and rehab stints. After all the mud slinging in the press it’s hard to remember what their relationship was like before their separation, especially since it didn’t last long. It’s been nearly a decade since they got married and since divorced — here’s a look at 7 things you probably didn’t know about Brooke Mueller and Charlie Sheen’s relationship!

7. How They Met

Brooke Mueller seemed like a good change for Charlie Sheen, who was reeling from a nasty custody battle with his ex-wife, Denise Richards. Not much was known about Mueller when they first started dating, except that she had gone from working as a real estate agent to walking the red carpet on the arm of the then-highest paid actor on television. She had also been trying to make it as an actress, but was unsuccessful. It was Grey’s Anatomy star Eric Dane and wife Rebecca Gayheart who introduced Sheen and Mueller back in April 2006 at a birthday party for director Brett Ratner.

6. Proposal

He proposed to Denise in June 2007 while on vacation in Costa Rica. They tied the knot nearly a year later in front of 60 friends and family at a private estate in Beverly Hills in May 2008. By September 2008 she was pregnant with twins, Bob and Max, who were later born on March 15, 2009. At first things seemed perfect between the two. “We wake up laughing and go to bed smiling and we’re just blessed to have found each [other.] We fell in love very fast,” said Charlie Sheen in an interview with Access Hollywood. But that was short-lived.
