If it’s not one thing, it’s another when it comes to Charlie Sheen. The spinner on his giant chore wheel of a life has landed on “Baby Mama Drama”. People got their hands on some court documents that Charlie filed in which he’s requested that his child support payments to ex-wife Brooke Mueller for their 6-year-old twin boys be lowered.
While he was on Two and a Half Men – a show I have never seen because, despite what the amount of alcohol I ingest would suggest, I value my brain and health – he was making more money than any other ho on the TV stroll. At the time he was making roughly $613,000 per month and that heavily played into factoring how much he pays Brooke and his other ex, Denise Richards (star of the greatest reality show ever, Denise Richards Colon It’s Complicated!), which is $55,ooo a month each. He’s in the middle of a messy money situation with Denise too. It’s also been reported that he sold his rights to Two and a Half Turds for $26,750,000. While he isn’t crying ‘poor’, he is saying that his income has drastically changed and as such the payments he makes should reflect that. Charlie is saying that currently he makes around $87,384 per month.
Charlie goes on to say that his personal monthly expenses are about $105,000 in bills and fees, plus another $25,000 for medical costs not covered by his insurance. He recently revealed he is HIV-positive and as South Park taught us, the cure for that is money. Charlie also said that he has legal fees that total nearly a million dollars and credit card debt near $600,000. And we can’t forget about the fact he said he’s paid $10 million in blackmail hush money to people who threatened to go public about his health. He talked about the child support and how he wants to change it last month on The Dr. Oz Show:
“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.”
Okay, but why is Charlie talking about money troubles on Dr. Oz? What does Dr. Oz know about child support dealings? Warts, sure! But child support? Shouldn’t Dr. Oz be talking to Charlie about Dr. Oz-like topics such as poop shapes? But then again, Charlie’s current financial situation sounds like it’s in the shitter, so I guess I just answered my own question.
