Los Angeles, Mar 5 : Actor Charlie Sheen has requested the court to reduce the amount of child support he pays to ex Brooke Mueller for the former couple’s twins, Bob and Max.

The actor said he should pay less child support now, as there has been a major decrease in his income from when the agreement was made. According to Sheen, he was making USD 613,000 per month while working on “Two and a Half Man,” which he left in 2011 and his current earning is USD 87,384 on average per month.
Because of the plunge in the income, he says he cannot keep up with the monthly child support payments. The actor, who recently revealed he is a HIV positive said he spends about USD 105,000 in bills and other fees, and spends an additional USD 25,00 per month in medical costs not covered by his insurance. The original agreement was made in February of 2011. A hearing for Sheen’s request is scheduled for April 13.
