RadarOnline.com is reporting that Charlie Sheen has blown through almost all of his cash and has moved back home with his parents! Less than five years ago, Charlie was the highest paid actor on television, bringing in $1.8 million for each episode of “Two and a Half Men.” A source says at one point, Charlie was worth over $125 million, but he threw it all away on expensive planes, drugs, women, and then payoffs to keep his HIV status a secret. Now Charlie is living in the guesthouse behind his parents’ place in Malibu. He’s in such bad shape financially that his ex-wives agreed to cut their child support payments in half. Both Denise Richards and Brooke Mueller have two children with Charlie. They both agreed to go from about $55K/month down to around $25K/month. But the source says it won’t be long before Charlie won’t be able to afford ANY child support because no one is willing to hire him.
Beyonce was performing in St. Louis Saturday night and in the middle of “Single Ladies,” she stopped down so one of her backup dancers could propose to his girlfriend. Beyonce handed John Silver the mic and he took the hand of dance captain Ashley Everett, dropped down on one knew and she said yes! Then Ashley jumped right back into the routine, only this time, she was waving that left hand in the air and flashing her great big diamond ring.
