Victoria told the Irish Mirror that Shane finds it “depressing” and wants out after accepting it.
She said: ‘I sure hope it comes out this week. It’s a little frustrating, I think. He finds it very frustrating… He wants out.
The couple has been together for more than 35 years and tied the knot at Copenhagen City Hall in Denmark in November 2018.
The intimate party was attended by their close friend Johnny Depp, who hosted the show.
The Irish singer-songwriter has been struggling with health issues since breaking his pelvis.
Wife: Victoria, who married Sheen in an intimate ceremony in Copenhagen in 2018 (pictured), told fans to pray for him earlier this month.
In 2021, he fell and fractured his kneecap, before tearing ligaments in his left knee, never fully recovering from the injuries.
He confirmed in April that he “couldn’t walk any more”.
He’s also been open about his battle with addiction, and in 2015 he had to get a full set of dental implants after decades of drinking and drugs destroyed his real teeth.
But just last week he seemed to be in good spirits when he delighted fans by joining TikTok, amassing 840,000 views for his first video.
In the 17-second clip, he says: “Welcome to Shane MacGowan on TikTok, I hope you enjoy. God bless, Shane.
