Charlie to Brooke:

I'm Gonna Cut You Off!

The gravy train is about to come to a screeching halt in the child support department ... at least if Charlie Sheen has his way with Brooke Mueller.

TMZ has learned ... Charlie filed legal docs this week ... asking a judge to cancel his obligation to pay Brooke $55k a month in child support. 

Sources close to Charlie tell TMZ ... he thinks it's absurd he should pay her anything while she's in rehab, because she doesn't have the kids -- they're with Denise Richards.

Charlie believes Brooke is using almost all the money for her rehab -- something he doesn't want to pay for.  Charlie has paid for several of Brooke's rehab stints before, and he doesn't think he owes her that obligation any longer.

Now get this ... we've learned Charlie has offered to up Denise's child support while she cares for Bob and Max, but Denise has refused the money. 

One final thing.  It's feeling like there's some bad blood here.  We've learned Denise recently brought the twins by the set of "Anger Management" to see Charlie at work.  You may recall ... last XMAS Brooke went nuclear when she heard Denise planned to take her kids by the set, and Denise backed off.

When mom's away ... the kids will play -- and dad won't pay.

$55,000 a month ! Most people don't make that in a year. Thats why she's in rehab all the time.Take it away and see how she gets her drugs after that.She doesn't have the kids any more any way.

I agree that Brooke shouldn't get the money with no kids, and that Denise should get some money for the two that she has taken. But she is getting the satisfaction of doing a good deed, and the good publicity which is worth a lot of her too. Not to put her down, it is great of her to take the other kids in.

$55,000 per month seems a little exorbitant for "child support" Frankly, that should be more than enough to raise a child for an entire year, barring unusual medical problem.

Charley's reasoning makes all the sense in the world--Brooke has no right to child support while in rehab, but why Denise refused the extra money is another story.

If Denise has the children, she should get the extra money. Brooke doesn't have the children right now.
Unless Charlie agreed to pay rehab in an agreement, he doesn't have to pay.
I generally don't like Charlie Sheen, but in this case he is right.

If Denise has the children, she should get the extra money. Brooke doesn't have the children right now. If Charlie didn't agree to pay the rehab in any agreement, then he isn't required to do so.
I don't general lke Charlie Sheen, but in this case, he is right.

Why is he paying her child support when she doesn't even have the kids, let alone not raising them? That's ridiculous! In a lot of these cases, none of that money is actually being spent on the kids' needs.

The child wupport should go to whomever has the custody of the children (within reason).

Do you think that Denise could have been "recruited" by Charlie to help him in these matters? Personally, as a having been divorced and having ALWAYS paid child support (more than the court would have required). I think that divorced fathers who pay child support should be entitled to a legal accounting of how that money is spent "supporting the children" . . . $55,000/more seems to be quite excessive.

And my EX did everything that she could to estrange my son towards me . . . and it work. Now at age 46 y/o, he has been married and divorced three times (or more) and "lives in his mother's house, which I gave her tull title to many years ago.

Women/people should be legally accountable for how they spend child wupport monies.

It's the least you can do since you probably turned her onto drugs...

Brooke was arrested for DUI in Florida (where she lived) in 96 where she admitted drug use (vicodin and cocaine). 2001 in Florida she was arrested for possession of cocaine. She was using drugs long before she met Charlie and probably married for the drugs. She showed no care for the children as she was using while pregnant and attended and failed 2 drug rehabs while pregnant. A good foster parent is better than junkie parents who only look at their children as a meal ticket.

Brooke cares more about drugs than being with her children and wants to get paid for not being able to care for them? It's call CHILD SUPPORT! Cut her off.

Everybody should cut off Brooke and let her go to Salvation Army and work in the soup kitchen. No money from nobody, paps and gossip rags included. If she actually had to rely on her own ability to work Gee that might teach her something. But unfortunately, she is rich and famous so it never will. Being down on your luck and being forced to work to keep clothes on your back and a roof over your head develops character. Sad.

Charlie is 100% right. She's in rehab and not caring for the children. Denise should get the child support if she wants it. Good for Charlie he's a better man than most people think.
