How will she pay for her next round of therapy?

Charlie Sheen may not be father of the year, but he suddenly came to the realization he doesn't want all his child support payments to go toward paying Brooke Mueller's rehab expenses. The actor has asked a judge to cancel it so long as his ex-wife Denise Richards is raising his twins Bob and Max.

This isn't chump change we're talking about here: Mueller gets $55,000 a month in child support, most of which really are going to her substance abuse treatment," TMZ says. Since Richards is the one raising the twins, Chuck has offered to pay her to help out, since he isn't allowed to raise his own children. Denise has refused, saying she'll raise the kids for free, the site claims.

That last part strikes us as pretty short-sighted on Richards' part, but it's not like they'll be back in Brooke's care anytime soon. That family is so weird, you may as well check poor Bob and Max into a center now and save everyone the wait.
