Sheen has also been seeking to have his $55,000 per month child support to both of his ex-wives be reduced. He said that he is no longer as wealthy as he was before. He pointed out that he pays $105,000 for his bills monthly and also pays $25,000 for his medical costs. He said that the $55,000 monthly child support was an amount they came up with years back when he still had a great job and when he was still living large.
His ex-wives, Brooke Mueller and Denise Richards took the child support matter to court saying that Sheen has not been paying in full regarding the support he has to give to his children, Inquisitr reported. The two women recently claimed that they are not ganging up on Sheen regarding the matter. Sheen has twin boys with Mueller while he has two children with Richards.
