Forgive us for the very obvious opener here, but...
... Charlie Sheen is most decidedly NOT winning these days.
Some might say he's losing even more than the New York Mets, in fact.
The 52-year old filed requests to modify his child support payments to ex-wives Denise Richards and Brooke Mueller yesterday, explaining to the court that he simply cannot afford to continue doling out the previously-agreed-upon sums to these women.
The former Two and a Half Men star, who is living with the HIV virus, who shares two daughters with Richards and twin sons with Mueller.
He alleges he doesn't have the necessary cash flow to keep up with his monthly payments because he’s “been unable to find steady work, and [has] been blacklisted from many aspects of the entertainment industry.”
This is quite the accusation, of course.
Being blacklisted implies that there's a concerted efforts by a multitude of people in Hollywood to keep Sheen from earning a living.
There's a conspiracy against him, Sheen is claiming.
Sort of like how Donald Trump and his associates willfully teamed up with Vladimir Putin and company in 2016, there's collusion at work here.
But it's maybe more possible that Sheen is simpy unemployable because he's an accused woman beater who may have lied to sexual partners about his disease and who spent like a year ranting and raving like a mad men.
Per these legal documents, Sheen has been making child support payments to both of his ex wives since the summer of 2016.
He was ordered to pay $55,000 a month to Mueller in August of 2016 and $20,000 a month to Richards in June of 2016 and...
... wait, what?!?!
Sheen has been shelling out $75,000 PER MONTH in child support for two years now?!?
We don't feel sorry for the guy or anything, it's just... wow. That's a crap ton of money.
Sheen also pays both exes 9.5 percent of his gross annual income from all sources in excess of $2.1 million.
Due to his deal with CBS (for Two and a Half Men) and then with FX (for Anger Management), Sheen could pretty easily afford those aforementioned payments, as significant as they may be.
"I have been unable to find steady work, and have been blacklisted from many aspects of the entertainment industry," Sheen writes in the documents, adding:
"All of this has resulted in a significant reduction in my earnings."
As a result of being out of work, Sheen says he he no longer has "sufficient income" to pay the court-ordered child support amounts.
And he's probably telling the truth.
Is he really in "dire financial crisis," however, as he also claims?
Documents show that Sheen made an income of $37,631 last month and that his assets total about $5.8 million.
The latter figure would put him in the upper 1%, of course.
But remember, he's paying $75,000 a month and that can add up quickly.
Sheen married Richards in 2002 and they separated in 2006.
He then married Mueller in 2008, but the two broke up in 2011 after an ugly few years marred with allegations of infidelity and violence.
The actor also has a 33-year-old daughter, Cassandra Jade Estevez, from a previous relationship with his high school girlfriend Paula Speert.
