Charlie Sheen is going back to court to ask for a reduction in child support. Currently, he is paying out approximately $55,000 in support to Denise Richards and Brooke Mueller for Lolo, Sam, Bob, and Max. Sheen is complaining that he has a reduction of income, and also, he has had to pay out serious money to former girlfriends who are making claims against him for exposing them to HIV.
According to the Inquisitr, Charlie Sheen has been plotting to cut his costs by selling the houses that were in his children’s names, and terrorizing their mothers with nasty voicemails and text messages. He has missed payments, and allegedly told his girls that their Christmas presents were donated to the homeless. Sheen has also been accused of dipping into his children’s trusts.
People Magazine is reporting that Charlie Sheen has gone to court to reduce his child support payments for all of his minor children. Sheen is claiming that a serious drop in his income led him to cut his expenses, and the bulk of his money right now is going to child support. In 2011, Sheen was making over $600,000 a month, but that has dried up since he left Two and a Half Men. Though he sold his rights to the show for nearly $27 million, he claims that his monthly income is now a paltry $87,000 per month, and half of it is going to child support.
Sheen now has a hearing scheduled for April 13. He claims that his former wives and children will have to accept that he is making less money, and they will have to accept less too.
“We came up with a number a long time ago and I had a great job and everybody was living large. and that’s not the case right now, but there’s still that expectation to still keep paying this kind of money.”
Denise Richards, as well as Brooke Mueller’s, support payments are both on the chopping block in terms of income, says Radar Online. Charlie Sheen is claiming that a variety of his medical expenses are not covered by insurance, and that is eating away at his monthly income. Sheen claims that he is down to $2 million in savings. Sheen claims at the moment, he is $13 million in debt.
Page Six is wondering if Charlie Sheen can explain to the court where his recent payday of $27 million went, and if Sheen can provide an accounting of his other expenditures, in order to justify the reduction in support to his children. They also wonder why Sheen hasn’t worked at all since 2014.
Charlie Sheen’s agreement with Brooke Mueller states that the child support payments he makes for his twin boys could never be lower than those he makes for his daughters with Denise Richards, which is why he is trying to lower the payments to Richards also, which will make it easier to do the same to Mueller. Sheen is now trying to remove the phrasing about the level of Mueller’s payments.
