Charlie Sheen to Judge

Jon Cryer Did it Right!

Brooke Deserves Zip for Child Support

7/11/2013 11:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen is using his old "Two and a Half Men" co-star Jon Cryer to try to convince the courts that Brooke Mueller's child support payment should be reduced from $55,000/month to ZERO ... TMZ has learned.

As TMZ first reported ... Charlie filed documents requesting the massive change in child support because Brooke currently doesn't have custody of their boys, Bob and Max ... while she's in and out of rehab.

In the docs, Charlie references Cryer's divorce -- where his ex-wife was arrested in 2009 for alleged child abuse and temporarily lost custody of their son.

Charlie says Cryer requested his support payments "be reduced from $10,000 per month to zero" -- and the court did lower the amount of support ... thereby setting a precedent, Charlie feels, for his current situation with Brooke.

The docs also list some astronomical financial details, such as the fact Charlie earns more than $740,000 per month (before taxes) -- and has more than $90,000/month in expenses on all his homes.

By the way, that $55k isn't all Brooke gets each month -- according to Charlie he also foots the bill for ALL the kids' expenses ... including therapy, medical, schooling, and more -- for a grand total of $30,000/month.

It's clear Charlie's point to the court is -- Brooke doesn't need the the $55k anyway.

Got to go with Sheen. She's only using that money for her drugs. 20 plus stints in rehab. Please.

Can he set up a trust fund for the kids and put the child support payments in that if the judge won't lower them? She should not be putting all her kids money in the pipe.

OF COURSE Brooke should not be collecting child support on children she isn't raising, but he should be putting that money into a trust for his kids that neither he nor Brooke can touch. It seems like a conflict of interest for him to benefit so greatly from his kids' misfortune.

This story comment #4 all I am asking is for Harvey, Charles & Evan to give the reporters a byline.
Yet a get a bunch of down votes.
All other publications give reporters bylines (their name in the article) yet TMZ does not.
Why the down votes unless they are coming from inside TMZ

She does not have the kids. It seems pretty simple that she should not get child support. This seems like a non-issue.

so, she gets $55,000 *every month* for the two boys, and charlie still pays for school, doctors, etc etc...? so basically that $55k is for what? clothes and food? some people barely make that much in a year...
yes charlie, cut off the gold digging crackhead, no wonder she'll never get clean, if she gets 50 grand every month to blow up her nose...

Brooke should not get child support. Denise Richards should get child support for the boys as well as permanent custody. THE END

Maybe not getting support will sober her up for good!

750 grand a month - that buys a lot of pals.

All she will do is suck it up her nose. No mother gets so wasted the law walks in and takes her kids and can say she cares for them . One day she will OD and those will have a chance at a normal life without moms drugged up face in the news all the time.

Astronomical sums. Incredible.

The child support should be stopped, especially since it is probably what pays for Brookes drugs!

What about Brooke support?
How's she gonna pay for her rehab stints, legal/illegal drug medications, vacations to Hawaii, personal assistant, etc.??? She's high maintenance.

I agree if she doesn't have the children at this time why should he give her money to take care of them??? If she ever got them back then he should resume payment but right now she shouldn't be receiving it.
