Charlie Sheen lying to avoid child support?
Brooke Mueller, ex-wife of Charlie Sheen, is not convinced Sheen is telling the truth about his current financial situation. She is stating that he owes $89,000 in child support.
The ‘Anger Management’ actor pays Mueller $55,000 a month for seven-year-old twins Bob and Max but he recently filed documents asking to have the amount drastically reduced as his wealth isn’t what it once was.
However, according to TMZ, Brooke is unconvinced by his claims and is seeking authority from a judge to freeze his assets so she can get her money from him before he has chance to empty the account.
In his court documents last month, the 50-year-old actor said he was making $613,000 per month while working on ‘Two and a Half Man’, which he left in 2011, and though he sold his rights to the show for a staggering $26,750,000, he claimed he cannot keep up with the monthly payments to Brooke because he is now earning an average of $87, 384.
Charlie admitted earlier this year he was keen to have the amounts he paid to Brooke and another of his ex-wives, Denise Richards – the mother of his daughters Sam, 11, and Lola, 10 – reduced from $55,000 a month as he felt it was no longer realistic.
He said: “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.
“At some point you just can’t justify it, especially when there’s no gratitude behind it. None. I would send somebody flowers every hour if I got that kind of dough tax free.”
In January, Denise filed a lawsuit against the ‘Young Guns’ actor, suing him for $1.2 million and alleging he hadn’t provided all the financial support he promised for their kids.
