Charlie Sheen moving to Mexico?
Charlie Sheen has bought three homes in Mexico for a total of £1 million.
The 50-year-old actor splashed out on multiple properties in the town of Rosarito in Baja California, Mexico and is planning to leave Los Angeles and move to the "quiet retirement community".
Real estate agent Scott Weier, who claims to have brokered the deal, told Daily Mail Online that Charlie plans to live in the middle house and keep one empty on either side of him in order to maintain his privacy.
He said: "It’s just a humble little three-bedroom house, around 2,700 square feet. It wasn’t too expensive.
"He told me he’s planning on living here full time, he’s tired of the rat race of the United States and his life the way it is. He wants to do something a bit different. He’s looking for a change. Compared to what he has in Los Angeles it’s very humble and simple.
"He’s certainly not coming here to impress anyone with a huge mansion on the ocean."
Mr Weier, who works for Baja123.com, added: "He’s looking for things to be much quieter and simple. He’s a nice guy. From what I can tell he’s learned a lot from his mistakes and he wants not just to change his address but to change his life.
"He doesn’t drink as much anymore, and he even joked about that with me. When I’ve been with him he’s only had one beer or so. He wants normalcy and peace."
Charlie’s purchases come amid recent financial worries for the actor and he was recently sued for the outstanding balance of $287,879.28 on his Platinum American Express card.
Charlie should have paid his bill by March 12 and has incurred late fees of $8,357.69.
Blaming the situation on a former business manager, said: "If I was AMEX, I’d be suing me too!!"
This is the latest financial issue for Charlie, who has filed documents asking to have his $55,000 a month child support payments to both of his ex-wives drastically reduced as his wealth isn’t what it once was.
He 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 Mueller, mother of his twins Bob and Max, seven, because he is now earning an average of $87,384 each month.
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.
