Charlie Sheen says he has been “blacklisted” in Hollywood, and can’t find work, according to a new court filing obtained by RadarOnline.com, so he’s asking to pay less in child support to his former wives.
In the documents, the former Two and a Half Men star reveals he sends $20,000 a month to ex-wife Denise Richards to support their children – 14-year-old daughter Sam and 13-year-old daughter Lola. He also dishes out an additional $55,000 per month to ex Brooke Mueller for sons Bob and Max, both 9.
But after years of bizarre behavior and tainted tiger’s blood, Sheen, 52, claims he has less than $10 million to his name…a far cry from the height of his TV days, when he was pulling in nearly $2 million an episode for his top-rated show.
“Since June 2016, my income has changed significantly,” Sheen wrote in his appeal. “I have been unable to find steady work and have been blacklisted from many aspects of the entertainment industry.
“All of this has resulted in a significant reduction in my earnings.”
A hearing has been scheduled for September.
As Radar has detailed, the once highest-paid actor on television has gone off the rails in recent years, and has been forced to part ways with prized possessions like Babe Ruth’s 1927 World Series Ring, and even his Beverly Hills home!
Sheen’s life spiraled out of control after reports of alcohol and drug abuse, marital problems, bizarre public statements, and work meltdowns. CBS and Warner Bros. terminated his Two and a Half Men contract in 2011.
But worse was to come in 2015, when Radar exclusively broke the shocking news of Sheen’s HIV-positive status.
Now the Major League star has been reduced to Hollywood’s bench, forced to sell autographed headshots as he struggles to make ends meet.
“It’s a case of how the mighty have fallen,” a source told Radar. “Charlie is so down on his luck and flat broke that is has lowered himself to making appearances with other also-rans of TV fame at the Wizard World shows which fans attend to get celebrity autographs.”
