Charlie Sheen is threatening to cut off child support payment to his ex-wife, Brooke Mueller, while she's in rehab.
According to TMZ, Sheen pays Mueller, the mother of his twin sons Bob and Max, about $55,000 a month in child support. Since at least 1996, Mueller has frequently been busted on a variety of drug-related charges, including possession and use of marijuana and alcohol.
Most recently, Mueller was admitted to the Betty Ford Clinic to treat her drug addiction after being placed on involuntary psychiatric hold at UCLA Medical Center in May.
While she's in rehab, the kids are with Charlie Sheen's other ex, Denise Richards. The Warlock doesn't see why he has to continue paying Mueller $55K each month while she is recovering and while the children aren't with her.
He filed legal documents this week asking a judge to allow him to stop his payments to her. He believes that she is actually using all of the money for rehab, which he doesn't want to pay for. He has paid for several of her rehab visits before and since sobriety doesn't seem to stick, he doesn't feel he owes her that obligation.
Furthermore, Sheen has apparently offered to give Richards more money while she takes care of the twins, but the actress has declined.
But she did bring the kids by Sheen's Anger Management set to see their dad at work, something that she planned to do last Christmas. This infamously started a vicious feud between Richards and Mueller.
