Charlie Sheen is reportedly heading to court in an effort to have his child support payments to both Denise Richards and Brooke Mueller reduced.
After announcing he is HIV positive during a TODAY show episode earlier this month, the actor is hoping to substantially reduce the amount he pays to both women.
“Charlie has told his lawyer to formally go to court to get the monthly $55,000 child support payments to Denise and Brooke reduced,” an insider told Radar Online on Tuesday. “He is saying the most they should be paid would be $10,000.”
“The gravy train is coming to an end,” the insider said. “And Charlie is starting with the mothers of his kids.”
Sheen shares two daughters, Sam, 11, and Lola, 10, with Richards, and two sons with Mueller, twins Bob and Max, 6.
“There was never any formal court order by a judge dictating that Charlie pay that amount,” the source claimed. “It was Charlie being generous. In Charlie’s opinion, Denise and Brooke should be able to take care of the kids’ needs for $10,000 a month.”
While Richards continues to recieve income from acting gigs, Sheen's third wife, Mueller, isn't so lucky and reportedly relies solely on Sheen's child support to survive.
“Brooke rented out her Mulholland Estates mansion to Mariah Carey for the week of Halloween,” the source continued. “Mariah paid $100,000 for five days because she wanted to have a huge party and loves the gated community. Brooke is now trying to save as much money as possible, but she typically goes through the $55,000 every month.”
