Charlie Sheen sued for his $287k credit card debt

Los Angeles - Charlie Sheen is being sued for almost $300k.

The former Two and a Half Men star has an outstanding balance of $287 879.28 on his Platinum American Express card and the company has taken legal action against him, TMZ reports.

Charlie should have paid his bill by 12 March and has incurred late fees of $8 357.69.

Blaming the situation on a former business manager, he told the website: "If I was AMEX, I'd be suing me too!!"

This is the latest financial issue for Charlie, who has filed documents asking to have his $55k a month child support payments to both of his ex-wives drastically reduced as his wealth isn't what it once was.

He said he was making $613k per month while working on Two and a Half Men, which he left in 2011, and though he sold his rights to the show for a staggering $26 750 000, he claimed he cannot keep up with the monthly payments to Brooke Mueller, mother of his twins Bob and Max, seven, because he is now earning an average of $87  384.

Charlie, 50, admitted earlier this year he was keen to have the amounts he paid to Brooke and another of his ex-wives, Denise Richards - the mother of his daughters Sam, 11, and Lola, 10 - reduced from $55k a month as he felt it was no longer realistic.

He said: "We came up with a number a long time ago and I had a great job and everybody was living large. and that's not the case right now, but there's still that expectation to still keep paying this kind of money.

"At some point you just can't justify it, especially when there's no gratitude behind it. None. I would send somebody flowers every hour if I got that kind of dough tax free."
