Charlie Sheen can no longer pay $ 55,000 in child support payments to both of his ex-wives.
Charlie Sheen is once again laying out his financial woes, changing his plight towards Denise Richards and saying he can’t dole out the dough for his kids’ $ 55,000 monthly child support.
The former “Two and a Half Men” star filed for a reduction in payments just two weeks after making the same argument for his $ 55,000 support for his children with Brooke Mueller, TMZ reported.
This time the 50-year-old is taking Richards to court, arguing she can no longer receive the amount she’s been getting since 2009 because his income has “drastically declined” and he has to cover growing medical expenses, according to the gossip site.
The news makes some sense if Sheen intends to follow his divorce agreement with Mueller, which states child support payments to her cannot be lower than those to Richards.
The “Wild Things” star and Sheen divorced in 2006 and they have two daughters.
Meanwhile, he split from Mueller in 2011 after having twin sons, who are now six.
The bad boy’s diminishing income only allots him $ 86,384 a month compared to $ 613,000 in the past, according to the court documents obtained by People magazine which were filed for his first reduction request.
The actor says that amount doesn’t cover his $ 105,000 monthly expenses, including $ 25,000 for medical costs not covered by his insurance.
Adding to the mounting money problems is his claim that he was extorted out of $ 10 million by people who threatened to out his HIV-positive status, which he announced last year.
To solve the hardships, he recently sold his profit rights for his popular CBS show for $ 26.7 million, according to the magazine.
Still, the “Anger Management” star reported in filings that he’s $ 12 million in debt, which include mortgage and legal fees.
“What people forget is that’s money they’re taking from my children,” Sheen told NBC’s Matt Lauer of the blackmail while making his health announcement.
