LOS ANGELES – Charlie Sheen recently sold his profit-sharing rights to the comedy series “Two and a Half” for nearly $ 27 million, the actor has revealed in a court case to cut child support payments for his twin sons.
Sheen’s case on Wednesday seeks to change his divorce agreement with ex-wife Brooke Mueller. He says his income has changed dramatically and he wants to change the minimum monthly child support payments to $ 55,000 per month for his 6-year-old boys.
The actor sold his profit rights to “Two and a Half Men,” which was once television’s top-rated comedy and continues to replay, for $ 26.7 million. The sale took place within the past year, the record says.
Sheen’s case estimates a reduction in her monthly income from over $ 600,000 per month to nearly $ 167,000 as a result of the sale. It lists over $ 12 million in debt, the majority of which is owed on mortgages, taxes, and legal fees.
The actor revealed in November that he had HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, but said he was in good health thanks to a rigorous drug regimen. His last major project with the FX comedy “Anger Management”, which aired from 2012 to 2014.
Sheen and Mueller ended their marriage in 2011 after less than three years. He also has two daughters with actress Denise Richards.
One aspect of Sheen’s divorce settlement with Mueller was that his support payments for their sons could not be less than the amount the actor paid to support his daughters with Richards. Sheen is now seeking to have that provision removed and a judge has scheduled a hearing for April 13.
An appeal to Mueller’s lawyer Lori Howe was not immediately returned on Friday.
