Charlie Sheen has a lot to deal with these days: legal issues stemming from a confrontation with Brooke Mueller on Christmas Day; a possible divorce; the outing of his affair with Angelina Tracy.
The last thing the actor has any time for is the raising of a family.
Apparently Sheen actually agrees with that statement, as TMZ reports he willfully surrendered legal custody of the two children he had with Denise Richards, Sam and Lola.
Richards is now free to pimp them out for photo ops every day of every week.
Sheen has been paying $50,000 a month in child support to Richards since the couple’s divorce, a figure that will not change with this new custody arrangement. Previously, Sam and Lola had split time between their parents.
Meanwhile, according to Brooke Mueller’s prenup with the trouble sitcom star, she’ll get $55,000 a month in child support – NOT including medical and schooling expenses – if she divorces Sheen.
For his bank account’s sake, it’s a good thing Sheen will likely sign a new contract with CBS that pays him $1.3 million per episode of Two and a Half Men.
That’s 1.3 million more laughs than the show delivers on a weekly basis.
