Charlie Sheen wants his child support payments reduced

charlie_sheen_641411 According to a well-informed source, Charlie Sheen wants his child support payments to his ex-wife Brooke Mueller reduced. The actor doesn’t want to cut her off completely but thinks he shouldn’t pay the full amount of $55,000 on monthly basis while their children are in Denise Richards‘ custody.

The source said: “Mark Gross, Charlie’s attorney, filed legal docs in court this week that are asking the judge to reduce the child support payment to Brooke at this time, since she doesn’t have custody of the boys and is currently in rehab. It’s a child support modification request. Charlie doesn’t want to completely cut her off, and doesn’t want to kick her when she is down. However, he doesn’t think it’s fair that he should pay the entire $55,000.”

Brooke, with whom Charlie has four-year-old twin boys, is currently serving her court-ordered rehab and the kids are in Denise Richards’ custody. The next hearing is scheduled for the end of July and it is expected that Denise will be granted another six months of custody of the twins.
