London: Actor Charlie Sheen and wife Brooke Mueller are living apart and taking a “break from the marriage”.

The couple have been estranged ever since a fight last Christmas.

Although, both have received counselling to resolve personal issues, they still prefer to live separately.

"Sometimes when couples are trying to work things out, it`s better if they don`t reside under the same roof... (but) there are no plans for either party to end their marriage," the Daily Star quoted Sheen’s spokesman, as saying.

He added: "(Mueller) needs to take a breather from Charlie. She is basically taking a break from the marriage."
