Actor Charlie Sheen's child support dispute continues

Entertainment news media frequently provide updates on the lives of celebrities. Such news ranges from upcoming projects to personal stories involving actors, actresses and more. Florida residents familiar with the former star of the show Two and a Half Men, Charlie Sheen, may find it interesting to learn that he is involved in a child support dispute with his ex-wife, actress Denise Richards.

Sheen and Richards have two children together. Their dispute is over the current $55,000 monthly child support payment Sheen is supposed to pay Richards and the home Richards lives in with their children. Presently, Richards is living in at the residence that Sheen owns with their two daughters, ages eight and ten, and her two-year-old daughter. According to someone close to Sheen, for the last few months Richards allegedly has prevented Sheen from seeing his daughters.

Given that Sheen has not seen his daughters for several months, he argues that Richards should not be allowed to live in the house he owns for free and that it is preposterous that he has to pay her $55,000 per month in child support. However, earlier this year, in January, Sheen reportedly only paid Richards a bit more than half of his $55,000 per monthly child support obligation. Aside from the January payment, Sheen has not made any other child support payments.

In an effort to resolve the issue, Sheen and Richards are expected to participate in a mediation wherein Sheen is apparently seeking a reduction in his child support payments. However, based on the actor's income, it is likely that his monthly child support obligation may increase. The child support dispute between two is ongoing and the matter is yet to be resolved.
