“I think what happened today is extremely fair,” said Sheen, 56, exclusively. We as he left the courthouse, where he appeared to be in a good mood on Monday, October 4. “It not only speaks of today, but it speaks historically of that same fairness.”
The Wall Street The actor filed for an order to change the ex’s child support arrangement in December 2019. The actor Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum, 50, did not file any opposition documents, the judge said Alexander Giza at Monday’s hearing.
Sheen, who shares daughters Sami, 17, and Lola, 16, with Richards, was present at the hearing alongside her lawyer, Gregory PÃ©drick, but Richards didn’t show up. During the hearing, Pedrick asked the judge to order “zero child support” for Richards, arguing that Sheen had 100% custody of their daughters since April.
Pedrick said no child support orders had been filed with the court regarding Sami and Lola, but the former couple had set a 50/50 timeline. This arrangement, however, has changed in recent months.
However, a source said exclusively We Monday that Richards was not at the hearing because she “works out of state, which Charlie was well aware of.” Insider said “Denise was never served on this court date,” claiming Sheen “did it on purpose [so she wasnât able to be there]. “

He pushed him away because he didn’t want any child support records he was paying Brooke [Mueller] impact the case after agreeing to pay both of them the same amount of child support.
The insider claimed the actor âhasn’t paid Denise for at least four years. No child support. He owes her. Also Lola lives with Denise. When she films, she is with her father and sister. “
Sheen’s attorney claimed on Monday that the Two and a half men alum was paying too much each month in child support. The lawyer noted that his client set up a $ 1.2 million trust for his daughters after Sheen filed his initial petition.
“In the spring, in early April, Ms. Richards had a fight with her daughters and asked Mr. Sheen to take custody of them,” Pedrick told the court judge. “This has been the reality since April of this year.”
The judge on Monday ordered child support for Richards to be “zero”, and this would be reflected retroactively to April 1, 2021, when the Three Musketeers the actor began to take care of girls full time.
According to Sheen’s attorney, Richards owes him money because he’s overpaid for so long, but said Sheen chooses not to get the funds back.

She noted that she is now “out of the house of hell” and “full of self-esteem” after dropping out of high school.
A source said exclusively We last month, that Richards was “saddened” by the situation and hoped that she and Sheen could get better at co-parenting.
âDenise is like any other divorced parent who has to do with a rebellious teenage girl,â the insider said. “It’s better for Sami if Denise and Charlie co-parent her during this time. They aren’t.”
A second source explained that the former Bravo star wants her daughters to have “boundaries” that they apparently did not receive with their father. “Charlie is the daddy of a good time, well, the rules and the curfew aren’t really set in stone,” the insider added. “And that’s why Sami went to live with her father.”

In a second hearing on Monday, the Major league the actor’s request for an order to reduce his support payments with Mueller has been dealt with. The judge ruled the hearing was postponed because Mueller was not present.
