Actor Charlie Sheen is pleading poverty with his ex-wives, Denise Richards and Brooke Mueller. He is asking for his child support payments to be reduced. Sheen has been paying US$55,000 per month to both wives. However, he says his income has drastically declined and he is currently facing financial hardships, after selling his rights to Two and a Half Men, and in light of his mounting health care expenses.
Sheen announced last November that he is HIV-positive, a secret he kept for years, which cost him millions in "hush money".
