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 is uncalled for. There's absolutely no justification how 1 child racks up such expenses in 1 month! What IS called for is both accounting of expenses and repayment with wage or bank account garnishments---HERS!

No question he is not father of the year. It's probably better he isn't around his kids much with his level of dysfunction in his own right. However, he totally has a point. Why should he be giving the mother money to care for the kids when she isn't caring for them? That's the whole point of the CS. It's the children's money. If Denise doesn't want it, then put it in an account for them for their education or later on when they may need it. But Sheen is correct, the mom should not be getting the money.

Nothing like two losers for parents--the mother with the addiction and the father with the whatever-it-is-he-has who wants to be the uncle who comes to visit for photo ops. Denise Richards is the only parent they have.

What did Charlie ever see in this leach??? Denise is by far the vest thing that ever happened to Charlie and she comes across as the best adult in the room.

I am a fan of Charlie Sheen, however i dont understand why he gets a free pass,so to speak! He is their father and he should be taking care of his own kids, he should get any help he may need, as far as him being on drugs, sex addict,etc.! Some people praise him for giving his kids to Denise Richards, but he needs to fix his own life and those boys should be living with their father! When he is working, hire a nanny, and when he comes home his kids should be there waitng for dad, to have dinner and play! He is almost as bad as Brook! Charlie, step up and be a man, and take some blame! J M O!

Good for Charlie! He is a great guy and that Brooke just takes advantage of him. He is always the target of jokes and funny games like Star Smash and is not taken seriously as a father. \but he pays lots of money for Brooke's extravaganzas...that should stop!

It's NOT for Charlie Sheen to decide whether or not he pays or doesn't pay child support. I f he stops paying, then he should be arrested! Still thinking he's above the law.

Shows you just what kinda woman Denise Richards is I liked her before but got even more respect for her now. Charlie shouldn't have to be paying Brooke a penny she should have to pay the money she has received to Denise thats she has already gotten since Denise has gotten the kids. If Denise don't want the extra money from Charlie the two of them should set up an account for the kids for that money to go into for them when they get old enough to have it. hopefully one day Brooke shall pull her head out of her ass and get herself clean and straight for the sake of her kids if not they should stay with Denise permanately at least that is a good stable home for them and they can be with family and their siblings they have with her.

Why didn't daddy dearest take custody of his two boys when their mom went into rehab, instead of peddling them off on his ex-wife? I feel sorry for all of his kids, probably with the exception of his oldest, who is married with a child and presumable out of the mess that the others are in.

You know, I never really liked Denise Richards at first, she isn't much of an actress and she played around with Ritchie Sambora while he was married to Heather Locklear, but I gotta tell you, I really admire her a great deal now, refusing the extra money that Charlie offered her.
It seems to me that she is a great mother to her own kids but to Brooke's kids as well. It takes a good person to take in children that are not biologically your's and to raise them to be good people. I admire people like that.
Charlie should have cut off her money years ago. But I can understand why he didn't. He was obligated too by the court and he didn't want his children to suffer anymore than they already did. And he acknowledges that he himself would not be a good person to raise his kids and that Denise is. I respect him for that.
