Brooke to Warner Bros:

I Want a Piece of Charlie!

6/28/2011 11:43 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Brooke Mueller apparently isn't confident enough that ex-hubby Charlie Sheen will make good on child support, so she got a judge to order Warner Bros. to send $55,000 of Charlie's money her way every month.

Brooke's law firm, Trope and Trope, served legal papers on Warner Bros. last Friday, demanding the studio withhold $55,000 a month from all monies due Charlie to satisfy his child support obligations.

The lawyers are demanding that the studio send the $55 grand a month directly to Brooke.

Sources connected with Brooke concede Charlie is not behind on his child support, but Brooke wants to make sure she gets her support if Charlie begins to run low on cash.

Warner Bros. must comply, because a judge signed the document ordering the studio to divert the money to Brooke.

Garnishment -- tasty on food, bitter on paychecks.

$55K/month? That's not child support, that's theft. A child does not need $55K/month in order to be fed, clothed, and have shelter. This is what's wrong with the system in this country. I don't care how much Charlie makes, child support should be maxed out at $100k/YEAR. Child support is supposed to be to SUPPORT THE CHILD, not so stupid ***** like her never have to work again!!!!

This trick is too much. She probably will take the cash, move to Hawaii, and continue to hang with and buy from the meth heads. She is nuts, unstable, and a gold digger.

In my state (Kansas, NOT a liberal bastion), the *standard* rule is that child support is paid through a withholding order on the paycheck. It's a privilege rarely granted to be able to pay directly. I think most states are moving towards that model (saves all kinds of legal wrangling when payments aren't made, or aren't made on time), so there's nothing unusual about Brooke's move.

*Charlie* and *Brooke* AGREED to the $55K/month amount; it wasn't the judge's decision. He merely signed off on what the two parents had agreed to. The "system" didn't make the two of them settle on that amount, so don't blame it.

"She was actually being decent to him. she could have taken him to the cleaners. and be living herself in that house. what doesn't anyone get about being married to the man, and bearing his children? look up california divorce, its the juiciest out of all the states."

The median income in the US is $44k. A year. Unless Charlie Sheen wasn't paying on time, or refused to pay up, a judge has just given control of more than most people earn in a year, a month, to someone with admitted drug problems (on TV, in her own words). I'm not arguing whether that amount of money is justified in a divorce. I'm questioning whether it's a smart move to give someone like that the money directly as opposed to a trust or something similar. I think she has problems.

This Tramp is such a UGLY,UGLY person. All she wants is to support her drug habit and thats it. Charlie should demand the judge in this case to order her to take drug tests every single week at her expense in order for her to receive more money from Charlie. She is just such a PIG.

My question is, if she gets $55,000 a month for child support why is she out hawking stereos and jewelry to get her crack money?

And holy crap $55,000 a month for child support WTF??? What the heck do these kids need $55,000 a month for? And I agree with whoever said this money should be going right into a trust for them.
