Charlie Sheen slashes child support to Brooke Mueller and Denise Richards
Charlie Sheen has slashed his support payments to his ex-wives Brooke Mueller and Denise Richards in half.
The ‘Two And A Half Men’ star – who has daughters Sam, 12, and Lola, 11, with Denise, seven-year-old twins Bob and Max with Brooke and also Cassandra, 31, with his ex-partner Paula Profit – is having "financial trouble" and has cut the huge sum of money he was parting with each month for the upkeep of his kids, according to TMZ.
The 50-year-old star has come to an agreement to pay ‘around $25,000 a month’ to the actresses, who were said to be receiving $55,000 each up until now.
Furthermore, the report suggests that Brooke – who split from the star after three years of marriage in 2011 – and Denise, who he wed in 2002 and divorced in 2006, wanted to avoid a hearing in court because it could have led to payments being reduced to as little as $10,000 per month each.
Meanwhile, Charlie said recently he regrets not being "more involved" in his children’s lives.
He said: "I regret not using a condom one or two times when this whole thing happened. I regret ruining ‘Two and a Half Men’. I regret not being more involved in my children’s lives growing up … But, we can only move forward from today, and they wouldn’t call it the past if it wasn’t."
And the actor – who revealed in November that he was diagnosed with HIV four years ago – says telling the world about his diagnosis was "like being released from prison".
He said: "It was like being released from prison … and we unearthed the stepping stones to a rubicon of change."
