Charlie Sheen: I pay my ex-wives $55k USD per month
CHARLIE Sheen claims he pays his ex-wives $55,000 USD ($74,000 AUD) each per month.
The 50-year-old actor has six-year-old twins Bob and Max with Brooke Mueller and daughters Sam, 11 and Lola, 10 with Denise Richards and revealed he pays both women the astronomical sum.
Speaking on 'The Dr Oz Show', Charlie said he paid them "$55,000 each a month, tax free," before quipping to the audience "You could all live on that right?"
It was revealed on the show that Charlie's payments to his exes were part of what he dubbed 'Operation Harmony', a plan to have his children and ex-wives live nearby.
He said: "I bought houses in my neighborhood for Brooke and the boys, and then for Denise and the girls. I wanted everybody to be in the same neighborhood. And that all went bad."
Charlie is currently being sued by Denise, who claims he evicted her and their daughters, from their home and also sent aggressive text messages to their younger daughter.
However, one of Charlie's lawyers, Martin Singer, slammed Denise for being "greedy".
Mr. Singer said: "I've been representing Charlie for more than 20 years.
"Patty [Glaser, Denise's lawyer] is just the latest in a long string of lawyers who Denise has hired to squeeze as much money as she can out of Charlie. This motion has nothing do with their children. Denise is simply being greedy.
"She isn't satisfied receiving $55,000 per month tax free - more than what 99 per cent of the people in the world make. Now, she's asking Charlie to pay her more money so she can buy a second home because one $7 million home isn't enough for her."
