Charlie Sheen slashes child support to former wives

Los Angeles Actor Charlie Sheen has slashed his support payments to his former wives Brooke Mueller and Denise Richards by half.

The "Two And A Half Men" star, who has daughters Sam, 12, and Lola, 11, with Richards, seven-year-old twins Bob and Max with Mueller and also Cassandra, 31, with his ex-partner Paula Profit, is having financial troubles and has cut the huge sum of money he was parting with each month for the upkeep of his children, reports

The 50-year-old has come to an agreement to pay around $25,000 a month to the actresses, who were said to be receiving $55,000 each up until now.

Furthermore, the report suggests that Mueller, who split from the star after three years of marriage in 2011 - and Richards, who he wed in 2002 and divorced in 2006, wanted to avoid a hearing in court because it could have led to payments being reduced to as little as $10,000 per month each.
