Celebrity child support payments

The flashy and extravagant lives celebrities seem to lead are sometimes exaggerated for publicity, but many actors and entertainers who are on the covers of magazines do make a lot of money. When these wealthy individuals have relationships that don't work out, they may have to pay large sums for child support. Tennessee residents may be interested to read about some of the following stars who have big child support payments.

The number of children influences how much one has to pay, which might be why former "Two and a Half Men" star Charlie Sheen pays a total of $110,000 a month in child support. He reportedly pays Brooke Mueller half of that for their twin boys while the other half goes to Denise Richards for their two daughters.

Unlike Sheen, rapper 50 Cent has only one child and pays $25,000 a month to an ex-girlfriend to support his teenage son. Mel Gibson pays $20,000 per month for his daughter while Sir Paul McCartney pays $70,000 per month for his 11-year-old daughter. The income of both parties matters when determining child support, and this could be one reason why the former Beatle pays more than other stars for his child.

Sheen allegedly stopped paying the support amount ordered by the court to Richards in 2014 because she would not let him see his children. Cases like Sheen's do occur when a parent has a problem with a custody arrangement. Sometimes unforeseen circumstances lead to a parent having trouble making child support payments. Individuals who have problems with custody agreements or child support payments may be best served by seeking a modification in court.
