Charlie Sheen is leaving "Two and a Half Men."

  Period.

 People Magazine is reporting right now, and I believe it - People is scarily reliable on matters of this sort.

  Here's what they've got:

 - Sheen rejected an 8th season because  “He wants to move on,” says a friend of the actor, whose contract is fulfilled after he tapes this season’s 22nd episode. “Leaving is 100 percent his idea.”

- What's the problem? Hard to say, and you can bet it's not money, and likely that the domestic battery charges - extremely serious, as you know and which could yield jail time may have something to do with this. People: “Charlie’s just done,” says a set source. “And he’s quietly telling his friends he’s not coming back.”
