Charlie Sheen is leaving his knot untied. The Anger Management star, 49, has split from fiancee Scottine Sheen (formerly Brett Rossi) after an eight-month engagement, he confirms to Us Weekly.

In a statement via his publicist Jeff Ballard, Sheen tells Us, "Scotty and I had a great year together as we traveled the world and crossed a lot of things off our bucket list. She's a terrific gal, but we've mutually decided to go our separate ways and to not spend the rest of our lives together." 

This would have been the fourth marriage for the former Two and a Half Men star. He was previously wed to Donna Peele from 1995 to 1996, to Denise Richards from 2002 to 2006, and to Brooke Mueller from 2008 to 2011. He and Richards have two daughters, Sam, 10, and Lola, 9; he also has 5-year-old twin sons, Bob and Max, with Mueller, and an adult daughter, 29, from a previous relationship.

"I've decided that my children deserve my focus more than a relationship does right now," Sheen tells Us. "I still have tremendous fondness for Scotty and I wish her all the best."

The actor and ex-porn star Rossi, 25, got engaged on Valentine's Day 2014. Not long after, the then-bride-to-be told Us everything was "amazing" between her and her groom. "The best thing about our relationship is the communication and honesty we share with each other," she said in May. "I've never had a relationship like that before, nor has he. So it's really great."

It was so great, in fact, that Rossi decided to take Sheen's last name before they were officially wed. "Even though we aren't married, I still go by Sheen as my last name," she said. "I don't want to go back to Rossi since I'm happily divorced, and it's pointless to go back to my maiden name since my last name will be changing again soon anyway…Everyone already calls me Scottine Sheen. It's different, considering we aren't married yet… But we basically are."
