Lack of chemistry ends Taylor-Taylor romance

Say goodbye to Taylor and Taylor.

"New Moon" hottie Taylor Lautner , 17, and country sensation Taylor Swift , 20, have split, according to UsMagazine.com.

"It wasn't really developing into anything, and wasn't going to, so they decided they were better as friends," a source close to Swift said.

"There was no chemistry, and it felt contrived."

Fans couldn't get enough of the same-name duo, who met in October on the set of their movie "Valentine's Day" (out Feb. 12).

But their fling was not meant to be.

"He liked her more than she liked him," said the source.

"He went everywhere he could to see her, but she didn't travel much to see him."

Wife says Sheen threatened to kill her

Charlie Sheen's wife told police the actor pinned her on a bed, put a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her in a Christmas Day fight in Aspen that began when she said she wanted a divorce.

An arrest warrant affidavit released Monday quotes Brooke Mueller Sheen as saying that the actor straddled her on a bed with one hand grasping her neck and the other holding the knife.

She said Sheen told her: "You better be in fear. If you tell anybody, I'll kill you."

He also told her, "Your mother's money means nothing, I have ex-police I can hire who know how to get the job done and they won't leave any trace," according to the affidavit.

The 44-year-old Sheen denied threatening his wife with a knife or choking her, according to the affidavit.

Charlie Sheen, who is listed in the affidavit as Carlos Irwin Estevez, told police he and his wife have been having marital problems and that she abuses alcohol.

He was arrested on suspicion of menacing, second-degree assault and criminal mischief.

The affidavit also lists a charge of domestic violence. Sheen is free on $8,500 bond.
