Actor Charlie Sheen, who once pulled in a massive paycheck for his work on the CBS hit “Two and a Half Men,” says he has been “blacklisted from many aspects of the entertainment industry.”
People reports that the claim appears in court documents in which Sheen, 52, is seeking to reduce the child support payments he provides to his exes Denise Richards and Brooke Mueller.
“Sheen, who shares two daughters with Richards and twin sons with Mueller, claims he can’t afford to make his monthly payments,” the publication reports, adding: “The actor claims he’s had a ‘significant reduction’ in his earnings, and is in a ‘dire financial crisis’ with less than $10 million to his name. The document also lists several debts Sheen has been unable to pay because of his finances, including both a pool service and a gardening service, which are both noted as ‘past due.’”
As recently as 2010, Sheen was reportedly the highest-paid actor on television, earning $1.8 million per episode of “Two and a Half Men.” He was later fired from the show during a highly public meltdown.
He went on to star on a new FX comedy, “Anger Management,” which wrapped up its 100-episode run in 2014.
