After peaking at the heights of his drug-fueled “#Winning” mania, Charlie Sheen’s life has taken a dramatic turn. He was diagnosed with HIV and has since been “blacklisted” by Hollywood. Not only is his career on the rocks, but his child support payments have also come due, and he claims to be unable to pay them. With four kids to support, Sheen needs to do the proper thing and send the $75,000-a-month payments and move forward.
Google “Charlie Sheen net worth” and you’ll find an article from BankRate.com from 2017 that lists the actors worth at a stagger $20 million. Nevertheless, Sheen claims he has less than $10 million to his name and can’t afford the child support payments that have been court ordered.
What does Charlie Sheen owe as child support? For his first ex-wife, Denise Richards, Sheen owes $20,000 per month to help support his daughters, Sam, 14, and Lola, 13. His second ex-wife, Brooke Mueller is supposed to receive $55,000 per month from Sheen to support their nine-year-old twins, Bob and Max.
Sheen doesn’t want to pay and has filed a request to pay less in child support because he cannot find “steady acting work.”
Court documents obtained through The Blast indicate that Sheen said: “I have been unable to find steady work, and have been blacklisted from many aspects of the entertainment industry.”
Sheen was the highest-paid star in 2010. He earned a staggering $1.8 million per episode for the show “Two and a Half Men.” Despite putting some of that money aside for child support, he now claims to face “dire financial crisis.”
Sheen is not only behind on child support payments. His lawyers are also awaiting millions of dollars in payments. They are taking him to the court of back pay in September.
Charlie Sheen’s love life has been a disaster for a long time. He married Denise Richards in 2002 and divorced her in 2006. Then he married ultra-wealthy real estate investor and actress Brooke Mueller in 2010 and divorced her in 2011 when he was at the height of his career.
Sheen has another child, a daughter, 33, with his former high school lover Paula Speert. Right now Sheen is dating 27-year-old Julia Stambler.
Sheen has been desperate for money in the past few years. He listed his Beverly Hills home for $10 million a little more than a decade after he dropped $7.2 million on that same property. His mansion includes seven bedrooms and many special features like two swimming pools. The mansion also has a kitchen to die for. It includes top-of-the-line appliances and a walk-in pantry. Perhaps a celebrity chef could put that space to good use. There is also an outdoor kitchen if the mood strikes.
The master suite in the Beverly Hills mansion is also a dream. It has a huge bedroom, a separate sitting area, a wet bar, and a screening room where Sheen would take his dates.
What do you think Sheen should do to cover his child support payments? Do you think he really is having financial problems that prohibit him from making payments?
