We consider a model of Kerr-like nonlinear coupler linearly excited by a external classical field involving coherent part and white noise and solved a set of coupled stochastic integro-differential equations, deriving exactly analytical formulae for the probability amplitudes of n-photon Fock states. As a consequence, this nonlinear coupler deliberated behaves as a two-qubit system. The effects of dissipation on entanglement of formation parameterised by concurrence are also analyzed and compare these results with that obtained previously in the literature. As a interesting result, initially for a period of time the entanglement is enlarged when the chaotic parameter increases.
