Los Angeles: `Anger Management` star Charlie Sheen`s child support payments to Brooke Mueller have been reportedly reduced by half to USD 25,000 while their sons are in the custody of his ex-wife Denise Richards.
Sheen has struck a new deal with his ex-wife`s lawyers after lodging an appeal to reduce his monthly payment of USD 55,000, reported Radar online.
"A deal was made out of court between Charlie and Brooke`s lawyers, which involved a mediator. The new child support payment is USD 25,000 a month, since the twins, Bob and Max, aren`t living with Brooke," a source said.
"If the judge in child dependency court gives the boys back to Brooke, Charlie will immediately begin paying her the full USD 55,000 a month.
Sheen recently bought a mansion for Mueller in the same neighbourhood as his ex-wife.
Richards secured temporary custody of their twins when Mueller was placed under an involuntary psychiatric hold earlier this year and then entered a rehab facility.
