Carlos Irwin Estévez, best known by his stage name Charlie Sheen, is an American actor who claims he pays his ex-wives, Brooke Mueller and Denise Richards, $55,000 each every month.
At 50, the American actor has six-year-old twins Bob and Max with Brooke Mueller and daughters Sam, 11 and Lola, 10 with Denise Richards and revealed he pays their mums the $55,000 for their upkeep.
While speaking on ‘The Dr Oz Show‘, Charlie Sheen said he paid them ”$55,000 each a month, tax-free,” before addressing the audience ”You could all live on that right?”
As a matter of fact, one can actually live on that amount for even longer than a month.
The show revealed that the monthly payments were part of what Charlie Sheen termed ‘Operation Harmony’, his own way of having his children and ex-wives live nearby.
”I bought houses in my neighborhood for Brooke and the boys, and then for Denise and the girls. I wanted everybody to be in the same neighborhood. And that all went bad.”
Apparently, Charlie’s plan went sour as he is currently being sued by Denise, who claims he threw her and their daughters away from their home and sent aggressive text messages to their younger daughter Lola.
Martin Singer who is one of Charlie’s lawyers dismissed Denise as ”greedy”. Mr. Singer said:
”I’ve been representing Charlie Sheen for more than 20 years. Patty [Glaser, Denise’s lawyer] is just the latest in a long string of lawyers who Denise has hired to squeeze as much money as she can out of Charlie.”
Singer explains that the motion has nothing to do with their daughters. Denise has been overwhelmed with greed, ”She isn’t satisfied receiving $55,000 per month tax free – more than what 99 per cent of the people in the world make. Now, she’s asking Charlie to pay her more money so she can buy a second home because one $7 million home isn’t enough for her.”
Denise should thread carefully to avoid losing the $55,000 she gets every month.
