A Los Angeles Superior Court approved a request from Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife, Brook Mueller, requesting that Sheen’s former bosses at Warner Brothers dock $55,000 a month toward child support from any payments they make to the actor, according to multiple reports.
The former couple divorced in May, about two months after Sheen was fired from his starring role on the highly-rated sitcom “Two and a Half Men”. Sheen and Warner Brothers have reportedly been in a legal battle since that time regarding the payments.
The child support payments are intended to go toward the needs of Sheen’s sons with Mueller, which was part of their divorce settlement. The couple have 2-year-old twin sons together.
Sheen was fired from his stint on “Men” earlier this year after a series of stunts that included publicly insulting show creator Chuck Lorre. Sources recently reported that Sheen’s character is set to be replaced by Ashton Kutcher when the show returns in the fall.
Sheen was the highest paid actor on television, reportedly earning nearly $2 million for each episode of “Men.”
