The former "Two and a Half Men" star filed requests to modify the child support he pays to Denise and Brooke, and says his dwindling finances are no longer able to cover his monthly nut.
Sheen explains, "I have been unable to find steady work, and have been blacklisted from many aspects of the entertainment industry."
As of now, he pays Denise $20,000 for their two daughters, Sam and Lola ... and pays Brooke Mueller $55,000 per month for sons Bob and Max.
Sheen says he is in a "dire financial crisis," and claims to have less than $10 million. It sounds like a lot, but remember he was making $1.8 million per episode back in the Chuck Lorre days.
Along with the child support, he also owes millions to his lawyers, the IRS and home mortgage.
A hearing has been scheduled for September.
