Studio to dock Sheen’s wages for child support

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.”

Sheen and ex reach child custody agreement

According to a number of media reports, actor Charlie Sheen and his ex-wife have finalized their child custody agreement regarding their twin boys.

A source told E! News that the case has been settled, although no details of the agreement were revealed.

E! reports that the attorneys for Sheen and his former wife, Brooke Mueller, met with L.A. Superior Court Judge Hank Goldberg and after the meeting, the June 9 hearing was taken off the calendar.

“Brooke and Charlie’s attorneys are confident that a settlement can be reached before June 9, and it’s almost a done deal,” someone close to the situation told a prominent gossip news site. “There are a few very minor details to work out, but both sides are expected to tell the judge that the matter has been settled ahead of time.”

The news source reports that neither lawyer responded to requests for comment and a representative of Sheen’s declined to speak on the matter.

The news source reports that the actor pays both Mueller and actress Denise Richards $55,000 a month in child support.
