Denise Richards’s lawsuit: Charlie changed locks, stole jewelry, kids’ clothes

Denise Richards Takes Her Daughters Out To Lunch
On Friday we reported that Denise Richards was suing her ex husband, Charlie Sheen, for allegedly raiding a $7 million trust account for his daughters meant to purchase them a new home. In 2014, Charlie evicted Denise and his daughters from a mansion he purchased down the street for them, forcing them to move to a rental home. The lawsuit, as reported by TMZ, included details of terrible things that Charlie said and texted to his youngest daughter, Lola, who was just nine at the time. In the quotes from the lawsuit on TMZ, Charlie threatened to kill Lola and Denise, called her a “f’ing pig wh*re,” and texted that he hoped Denise would “eat pork and die.” Charlie’s lawyer made the weak excuse that even though Charlie was texting Lola’s phone he assumed he was communicating with Denise.

Now more details from the lawsuit have been published on Radar, and they include a heartbreaking letter Lola wrote her father after he said those awful things to her. They also have Charlie’s absolutely unhinged response to the letter as well as the circumstances surrounding Denise’s eviction by Charlie. It’s much worse than TMZ made it sound. Charlie taunted Denise with disgusting references to her departed mother (you can read about that here, I’m not excerpting that part), he threatened to kill and/or harm her and the girls multiple times, he sent his then-fiance Brett to Denise’s house to try to get her to change their custody agreement, and he changed the locks on the home and stole jewelry from Denise and personal items from the girls. Here’s some of Radar’s report, with more at the source:

“Throughout 2011 and 2012, Sheen asked Richards and their children to move into a home that he had previously purchased in the gated community in which he resided (the Clerendon Residence),” documents obtained exclusively by Radar state. “Sheen had been diagnosed with a life threatening condition, feared that it could cost him his life, and wanted to repair the relationship with his children. Richards was concerned about Sheen’s erratic behavior but did not want to prevent Sheen from being close to his children during this time.”

“After receiving repeated assurances from Sheen that he would maintain a sober lifestyle and never evict Richards and the children from the residence,” it continues….

When Sheen began dating porn star Brett Rossi in the fall of 2013, things went even more downhill. Arguments about seeing the kids over the holidays resulted in Sheen sending Richards a text message that read, “I will get you one day live in fear u piece of s**t.”

Seeing that Sam and Lola were upset by the holiday stress, and [sic] Denise, 44, encouraged them to write letters to their dad, explaining how they felt.

“I walked into the room during the call and heard Sheen screaming, calling Lola (then nine years old) a ‘f*king pig whore,’ and yelling ‘I’m going to kill you and your mom.’ I told Lola to hang up, as she was visibly shaken and upset,” Denise claims. “Sheen called back repeating the comments to me and yelling, ‘how dare you let them write these letters.’ He then said he was coming over to the house with a baseball bat and the conversation ended. I immediately contacted Sheen’s security, warning them I would call the police if they let Sheen come to the Clerendon residence. After this incident I hired private security for me and our children.”

Richards also recounted events surrounding Sheen’s then-girlfriend Rossi.

“In February 2014, Brett invited me to a girls lunch with her. I suggested we talk first so Brett came over…she had given Sheen an ultimatum that if he wanted to have a relationship with her (Brett), he needed to cut off all ties with me,” Denise added. “I then asked Brett what the point of the visit was, and Brett replied she was there to deliver a message: I could stay in the residence if I signed a custody agreement. I told Brett that custody was between me and Sheen, and that he and I could not even talk about that until Sheen repaired the relationship with the girls.”

After Sheen and Rossi called off their engagement, there was a brief reprieve from the drama, which then escalated again in June 2015.

Sheen’s erratic behavior forced Richards and the girls to move out. The Wild Things actress also asserted that she had received application rejections from ten different private schools for her kids at that time.

“I was told by several schools the reason they [were] not accepting our daughters is because of Sheen’s conduct, and that Sheen is a liability that they do not want to take,” she explains in the declaration.

“In September 2015, I signed a 6 month lease on and moved into a short term furnished rental home near the children’s school, which may continue month to month thereafter,” the document continues. “Before I had completely vacated the Clerendon residence, Sheen’s representatives caused the locks to be broken and changed on two occasions, and removed my jewelry and several of the children’s clothes…”

[From Radar Online]

In the wake of dealing with Charlie’s insanity, Denise has remained quiet to an admirable degree. She’s bit her tongue for over two years after some of these things happened. She recently tweeted a response to TMZ’s original story, saying that this is about the trust for her daughters and that Charlie’s lawyer should protect that trust.

A source close to Denise (probably Denise) also spoke to People Magazine, stating that collecting child support from Charlie is “like pulling teeth” and that “Charlie is cutting expenses, and the kids are the first to go to maintain his lifestyle and it’s been going on for a very long time.” In response, Charlie’s lawyer Martin Singer claimed that Denise is using the kids to get money. “It is very sad that she uses the children to get more money from Charlie and makes it almost impossible for Charlie to see his daughters.” No. Just read what Charlie has done and said to the girls, he doesn’t deserve to see them. He should have a restraining order out against him. Team Denise. Here’s Denise’s response to Singer trashing her. I like that she’s defending herself and her daughters. It took her a LONG TIME and she silently took so much abuse before speaking out.

Charlie is currently on vacation in Mexico. He told Dr. Oz in an appearance earlier this month that he had gone off his HIV medication and was seeking an alternative treatment in Mexico. He also predictably said a lot of crazy sh*t, like how he didn’t care that he was risking his life because he was “born dead.” Charlie’s manager has since issued a statement that Charlie is back on his HIV medication. That sounds like damage control for a guy who destroys everything and everyone in his life.

    He’s even more of a monster than I thought. He should never be allowed near those poor kids ever.

    • Runcmc says:

      Yes “monster” is the world that came to my mind too. He’s an unhinged monster and I feel so sorry for Denise Richards and her daughters. I keep thinking back to how she was dragged in the press after their divorce and feel so awful for her. And she’s stuck with this dude until the girls turn 18 and can turn their backs on him themselves.

      • Nancy says:

        I’ve read comments calling him bipolar and/or other mental illnesses. He may indeed be, but to me he is plain and simple a heartless, soulless sociopath incapable of love and whose only interest is in himself. My heart goes out to his children, as always the most innocent of victims.

      • Little Darling says:

        The thing that really gets me is that she has been there for him time and time and time and again. She has forgiven, helped, jumped in cared for his twins because Brooke couldn’t. She’s a decent human being, right? We can all agree to that.

        It literally makes me feel ill in my stomach to know that these girls have that for a father. That is the man they’re supposed to look up to, who is supposed to teach them how to be treated by men properly, and how to respect themselves. This is the man who should protect them, not be protected from. It’s just so sad. I see Denise’s dad in the picture and am glad they have him around to at least see not all men behave badly.

        Ugh.

      • Nancy says:

        LD: She is a classic example of when bad things happen to good people. She is a nurturer, proving this by taking care of children that were his by another women and helping him through his demonic situations in life. She wanted to believe the best. He is what I always believe to be true, a sociopath. He has no empathy to any situation because he Is incapable of love, but could charm women enough to make them believe he was normal. I hope no other women is fooled by him because if my theory is correct, he has no soul.

    • Alex says:

      I’ve said it for years…Denise is a damn saint. Seriously. She took in his other children that have behavioral problems and constantly tries to play nice with Charlie and Brooke. She should stop playing nice and play hard ball now. A restraining order would be my first order of business

      • eyerollwithit says:

        +1,000,000 Alex

        I was just going to say something similar about Denise being the mature parent over the years, and how amazing she was to step in and care for Charlie & Brooke’s twins (who sound extremely troubled, btw).

        Charlie is a total dirt bag for treating Denise and his kids the sick and malicious way he does.

        Fcuk him.

      • Emma - The JP Lover says:

        @Alex ….

        I agree with everything you’ve said. I’ll add to it that Denise has known all along about Charlie’s HIV and kept it to herself (in one of his interviews about having HIV he mentioned that she is one of the few people who have known all along), even during his most outrageous behavior. That is admirable of Denise.

      • JenniferJustice says:

        I have nothing but admiration and appreciation for Denise, but it’s time to cut ties with Charlie and if it means she has to live modestly and her girls cannot attend the best private schools, so be it. He isn’t helping them. It is completely unhealthy, in fact dangerous, for Sheen to be in the girls life at all at this point. She tried. It didn’t work. Time for a change.

        I also believe the last child Denise adopted was most likely a “oops” baby he had with one of his many porn chicks. Why else would she suddently adopt a child when she already had two of her own and his twins (at the time)?

        I wait for the book she’ll write with breathless anticipation. I wish she would do it now. It would sell like hot cakes, make her a ton of money, and get her independnent of Charlie.

      • mayamae says:

        @JJ, I don’t know if Eloise is Charlie’s, but I’ve long thought she may be special needs. I just googled, and it does appear that Eloise has had developmental issues. So Denise did take on a lot when she adopted her in the midst of all of the drama.

        I agree that Denise needs to cut ties financially with Charlie. My cousin is in the same bind, although on a much lower level. Her ex is very hit or miss with paying child support, but he comes through on the big ticket items, which means he pays more in the long run. What she doesn’t understand, is this is done to control her. Drives me crazy!

      • Me45 says:

        There are also rumors that he has stopped taking his HIV meds too.

    • Emma - The JP Lover says:

      I’m still waiting for someone to label Charlie an ‘animal.’

    • FLORC says:

      1 huge YES to everything here.

    • justagirl says:

      He’s also an unhinged monster who is off his HIV meds…and I’m fairly certain he’s not letting that stop him from hooking up, nor does he seem likely to warn his partners.

      There is absolutely nothing redeeming about him. His poor children will need years of counselling, now and in the future.

  2. NewWester says:

    This man is so self destructive. He really wants to end up alone. Charlie’s children are better off without him in their lives. Just sad on so many levels

    • Denisemich says:

      She doesn’t just need that trust fund money back, she needs a lumpsum for child support.

      I don’t understand why he has any type of visitation rights. Based on his know substance abuse issues and his questionable mental state, why hasn’t she had them revoked?

      Denise needs to stop trying with Charlie.

      • serena says:

        +1 yep, there is no hope for him to be a normal parent, so better off withouth him.

      • Jwoolman says:

        This isn’t just about money. She wants to get his behavior with the girls on the court record and let the judge decide the next move. Otherwise he will just escalate and throw his lawyers at her. She’s doing all the right things, he is trying to claim she is keeping the girls from him and she needs clear evidence that she has not blocked him at all, just protected her kids when he went nuts. This is why it has always been supervised visitation, but the time has come for more limited contact and supervision by someone besides Denise (preferably a big guy with a steady glare…).

      • swak says:

        As I stated on the last thread, judges aren’t going to keep children from a parent because the parent is on drugs. Do I agree with that? Not really. But I know someone who fought to adopt her great nephew for 3 years. Mom was a drug addict. No matter how many times mom missed visitation or court dates, she was always given another chance. Finally a judge got fed up and revoked her rights and my friend was able to adopt the child. Denise is doing the right thing in getting it established that Charlie is not a good person to be around. If I’m not mistaken, his visits have to be supervised – that’s a start.

      • Cheryl says:

        Honestly, I don’t see how anyone can look down on her for trying to get every penny out of that sink hole for her daughters that she can.

        Since providing big piles of money is the only thing that Sheen is at all capable of doing for those girls, that needs to happen before the possibly infected ladies of questionable repute and scumbag lawyers get it all. Denise has got to look out for her daughter’s interests.

        You know Sheen hasn’t paid a dime during his crazy periods.

        Denise may not be a saint, but she’s a good mother and she’s looking out for her kids future.

        And that probably includes the fact that she is expecting them to have some serious Charlie-related problems. My guess is she stocked a lot of money away for therapy and the kids are already going. Because she is a nester.

      • Zwella Ingrid says:

        Because- at least in my state, it doesn’t matter what kind of POS the other parent is, you still have to allow them to have visitation rights. They can be supervised, if need be, and obviously they do in this situation, but you can’t block off someones visitation rights altogether. Unfortunately in this case.

    • justagirl says:

      I don’t think he’s self-destructive. I think he honestly does not care about others, and from so many of his comments, he thinks he’s untouchable, he is Teflon, he is basically a deity in his own mind.

      Self-destructive people – who frequently were victims of some kind of abuse, whether physical or emotional – at least try, and then fail, and take the blame, often take too much of the blame.

      Those who point fingers, blame other people for their downfall & their own poor choices, take advantage of the generosity of others cleaning up their messes…they’re not self-destructive, they’re narcissists who just don’t give AF.

  3. Tate says:

    Those poor kids. :-(

    • Snazzy says:

      Agreed. :(

    • Eleonor says:

      IKR ?
      I was heartbroken when the tabloid discovered she wanted to seek professional help for the twins but she couldn’t because of the law.

      • SamiHami says:

        Oh, that was so, so sad. I worry for those poor boys. At least the girls have a steady, stable parent to care for them. Those boys have nothing and no one looking after their best interests. Just heartbreaking.

    • Shambles says:

      I knew I shouldn’t have read Lola’s letter… I feel like someone is twisting a knife in my gut. Poor babies.

  4. RandomGirl says:

    I guess money talks because I don’t get how he hasn’t been locked away based on those threats alone. Especially with his history, I just don’t understand.

  5. lovemesseg says:

    Hopefully when the girls both turn 18 they never have anything to do with Charlie.

    If he lives that long of course.

    • Cheryl says:

      How has he lived this long? It’s a complete mystery.

      He’s looking for “alternative” Mexican HIV treatments? The cocktails available work pretty well and in California don’t they let you smoke all the pot you want with them? Are the Mexican treatments Crystal Meth based?

      • Ennie says:

        I am in Mexico and I have no idea what alternative treatment he could be seeking here. This doctor must be crazy himself.
        I know about some homeopathic treatment centers here and there, holistic, naturists, etc. that claim to cure cancer, but HIV??? The doctor must cure Charlie of his craziness beforehand.

  6. JustJen says:

    With behavior that destructive, his “people” must be working overtime to keep him from getting killed. Because if he keels over or gets stabbed, their paychecks end. He has zero redeeming qualities and really should be dropped on a deserted island. He wouldn’t last a week.

    And the attorney who broke the trust should be disbarred.

    • Naya says:

      “His people” always turn on his ass as soon as the check dries up. Didnt the Brett Rossi mentioned here go on a tell-tale spree after the HIV announcement. She even sued him for exposing her to HIV risk (rightfully so). I even remember her in interviews saying that she had witnessed him plotting to kill Denise.

      • Christin says:

        She also proudly pranced around with him and seemed to enable his rants against his ex (as supported by these claims).

      • swak says:

        Think she also knew he was HIV positive and still had unprotected sex with him.

      • H says:

        You know I had sympathy for Brett when Charlie’s HIV status was revealed. Now, I have little to none. What GIRLFRIEND tells her soon-to-be husband to cut ties with his kids and their mother? Apparently birds of a feather flock together. Its obvious now she was only with Charlie for his money and fame.

        Team Denise and children.

      • Bridget says:

        Re: Brett: Charlie CHOOSES vulnerable women he can manipulate. And I feel bad for any woman who values her own self worth so little that she thinks the best she can do is Charlie Sheen and his money. Can you imagine the way he treated her behind closed doors? She made some appallingly bad decisions and she’s going to have to live with that, but we also know that Charlie was also treating her despicably.

      • JenniferJustice says:

        I don’t beleive Brett Rossi was ever a victim of anything. She went into with him with her eyes wide open. She was just williing to sacrifice her dignity to get what she wanted. No woman who plays a role in severing a man’s relationship with his daughters and ex, attempts to blackmail the ex, gives the father an ultimatum, and so much more….no, she gets no sympathy. In fact, I wonder where she is right now. My guess is over seas if she’s smart because the haters are going to come after her now that the truth is out.

      • Ennie says:

        Re: Brett Rossi being a b**ch to Denise is nothing new.
        When I heard about her complaining, I thought to myself that she knew very well what kind of person (body and mind) she was getting into. Money was more powerful, and alas, she is suing him.
        This 2013 CB article links how Brett was behind the angry threats that Charlie Sheen was throwing against Denise. I bet the house thing was either instigated or applauded by that woman. http://www.celebitchy.com/339916/charlie_sheen_is_mad_at_denise_richards_vows_to_cut_child_support_vindictive/

      • Bridget says:

        No one makes Charlie do anything. Have we not learned that by now? Again: the man chooses women that are vulnerable and that he can discredit.

        And folks, don’t forget that stuff with Charlie, Denise and Brett also happened to converge when the Charlie-child porn rumors were coming back up again. Denise knows where the skeletons are buried when it comes to Charlie. He doesn’t need a jealous fiancee to get vindictive toward Denise.

  7. Mimz says:

    Can’t he be arrested and/or prosecuted, forced to pay his dues? It baffled me that he could throw them out of the house he GAVE to them. He probably kept it in his name, right.

    Ahhh this really upsets me. poor kids. I don’t even want to think about what the other two boys must be going through. So sad…

    • Lady D says:

      Can’t he be arrested and prosecuted for his death threats? It’s against the law here in Canada to threaten someone with death, is it not the same in the States?

      • Christin says:

        She would probably have to file charges. In many states, criminal threats are a felony.

        One thing she needs to consider is what may happen as the girls get older. He may become more unhinged towards her, especially if his lifestyle and money disappear.

        He seems the type who will live until 90, as a bitter jerk of a person who never changes.

  8. Jaana says:

    Is it evil to suggest Charlie kill himself? He has caused so much problems to so many people, so self destructive. His children will be taken care of. He can go.

    • Belle Epoch says:

      JAANA I was wondering the same thing. You’re not supposed to wish ill on other people but the world would be so much better off without him.

      This will sound weird, but I believe addicts attract demons or dark forces. Over time they just become vessels of evil. Whatever redeeming qualities they might have had go out the window, and you’re left with a shell occupied by darkness.

      • stoner says:

        I wouldn’t be surprised if he did; in fact, I’d lay money on it that he will. He’s narcissistic enough to think it would be the ultimate “F* YOU”.

      • JenniferJustice says:

        I don’t think it’s addicts per se – more like any one whop opens themselves up to evil. Drugs and alcohol make it worse or easier to be influenced. I think he knows what he is. That’s why he says he was born dead. That doesn’t mean he’s every going to seek help and not do whatever he wants, but I think he has moments of clarity and knows what he really is.

      • SamiHami says:

        I don’t think that sounds weird. I think that you are right; like attracts like. If you are an evil person then you are going to attract evil to you.

      • Detritus says:

        I’m really uncomfortable with the ‘addicts are evil’ narrative that’s going on here.

        There is an intersection between people who are selfish and awful and people who are addicted. I would even say that certain kinds of physical addiction can make you selfish.

        But please. Not all addicts are evil. That’s just an awful thing to say.

        Charlie Sheen in an HIV positive, alcohol and drug addicted, mentally unstable shit bag actor. The only part that makes him a giant shit bag is the fact he acts like a giant shit bag. Not any of the other stuff.

      • Bootsie says:

        Addicts are often people in a lot of physical or emotional pain who have no other way to cope. This idea that they are ‘evil’ or attract ‘evil spirits’ is quite horrible.

    • Erinn says:

      I was thinking something similar earlier. The world wouldn’t be a worse place without him. Maybe he could just disappear. That sounds slightly less ‘wrong’, but accomplishes the same haha.

    • Cheryl says:

      I just worry he’d take someone else with him.

      I think he’s too selfish to just kill himself. He’d take out the people “who ruined his life” too.

      • Cricket says:

        totally agree! If Charlie was going to go that route, he would not go alone. Where is his father and brothers? Can no one get through to him or help Denise and the girls? I remember when she left him and she was like 8 months pregnant and the tabloids were all trying to trash her – wow, I can’t believe how dignified she has handled and continues to handle this psychopath.

    • Embee says:

      I completely understand your question, and I think your befuddlement and Charlie’s behavior point squarely to the conundrum of epidemic proportions sweeping our country: mental health and addiction. When someone is embroiled with these two challenges they are literally impossible. Impossible to reason with, impossible to live with and impossible to ignore. And because our healthcare system still does not take mental health seriously (most insurance plans treat mental health differently than other diseases), and because our laws prioritize the personal autonomy of the ill over the right to safety of their family/acquaintances (these people cannot connect to make friends) we are at a loss to resolve the issue.

      Death becomes the only way out.

      And I actually think we need to remember that Charlie, at one time, was able to offer the world something. Denise did love him, as have others. I believe that his progression into mental illness, as exacerbated by his addiction, has stripped him of any discernible redeeming qualities. No question he has been an asshole for a very long time, but where he is now is not where he started. And his diagnosis has clearly added understandable stress making things even worse.

      So we have to figure out how to handle this stuff better, because Charlie is far from alone. I see and hear about it all the time from clients and friends, and I have had my own situation to manage. My daughter hasn’t seen her father in more than a year because of exactly this crap (and a Protective Order) and yet he has been caused to get no treatment. I talk to my counselor and she confirms for me that it is very bad and getting worse. I hope Charlie will bring these issues to public light and cause a conversation toward change.

      Sorry for the TL; DR – this is real passion of mine.

    • Ennie says:

      He’s like a cockroach.

    • norah says:

      what I don’t get is where on earth is Charlie’s family? in all this – this non stop harassment of denise and her kids – why doesn’t martin or Emilio help her out and tick him off once and for all – Charlie may be the son but these are the grandkids

  9. Tessa says:

    Why is this f**king monster still on my TV?

  10. Londerland says:

    So to recap: Lemmy dead, Bowie dead, Rickman dead, Charlie…still breathing. 😤

    • cannibell says:

      Glenn Frey also dead.

      Those poor kids. The irony is that if Sheen died, the residuals would probably go to the children and things would be so much more peaceful for them. Wonder where Charlie’s family (Martin/Emilio, etc.) are in all of this – whether they’re standing up for and supporting Denise and the daughters.

      • Londerland says:

        Oh god, I forgot about Frey. Yeah, karma really has a lot of balancing to do here.

        I firmly believe the kids will only be better without Charlie. No child should lose their father but arguably, they no longer have one – they lost him a long time ago, when he went off the rails again, if he was ever a truly stable presence in their lives. Living with a rage monster who torments them verbally, financially, emotionally, and could very well kill them on a whim, is worse than the physical death of a parent.

        And yeah, I often wonder where the other Sheens stand in this. I don’t quite know what public stance I expect from them but their silence is baffling. I suppose they don’t want to make the situation worse by weighing in publicly?…

      • cannibell says:

        My guess is that they’re quietly supporting their grandchildren. I do some mental health work (not professionally – I’m a Family Educator for NAMI and it’s a volunteer thing) and it’s awful to have a family member who is sick, off the rails and not only refuses help but harms the people around him (or her).

      • Jwoolman says:

        I wouldn’t expect his family to say anything public about this. I’m sure the grandparents and possibly Charlie’s siblings are keeping well posted. I know Charlie’s parents visit, but they were being blocked from visiting the twins at one point if I’m recalling correctly. My guess is that Denise is getting quiet support from his side of the family. His parents like her.

      • JaneDoesWork says:

        I’ve always wondered that. I’m a fan of Martin sheen, but I remember hearing that story about Paula Abdul approaching him at an event, and he didn’t know who she was… Even though she had been married to his son Emilio. Ialwaysthought that was strange. It seems like they may just be sort of hands off.

      • mayamae says:

        Martin Sheen has intervened where he could. He called the police years ago when Charlie showed up with a gun. He’s long been concerned about Charlie’s mental health.

  11. Talie says:

    I hope a judge gets her everything she wants and a restraining order.

  12. Lucy2 says:

    The courts need to remove any rights he still has, give Denise and the kids a restraining order, and take over control of the money. Charlie is a monster who can’t be dealt with anymore.

    • Embee says:

      Would you believe that in my state (Maryland) in order for a father’s parental rights to be removed another man has to assume them? Now that we’ve passed same-sex marriage laws the gender bit may change but holy crap it’s hard to terminate parental rights.

  13. Patricia says:

    This is horrifying. I would be afraid for my life and my children’s lives.
    Money isn’t even worth it. I know the girls are entitled to their trusts but they are being so severely damaged by having Charlie in their lives even a little bit, it’s just not worth it. Kids grow up without a lot of material possessions every day. Their mental health is far more important.
    If it was me I would get a restraining order, cut my losses, and run. I’d go into hiding for a while. I would get therapy for the girls and spend the next several years keeping them safe and our lives entirely private, and building back up what has been lost in their poor little hearts. It’s just awful how this disgusting man has hurt his own children. I am afraid he will harm them, I truly am. Denise should at least hire security if she hasn’t already .

    And no wonder his little boys were showing violent behavior!

    • Crumpet says:

      I don’t know that Denise can support them on her own. And she can’t go into hiding, or she would be charged with kidnapping. I think she is doing the right thing – finally going after him with the gloves off. It is the only way to get anything done with that man apparently.

      • norah says:

        its difficult for her to support them – tbh how she manage to go out everyday without breaking down is incredible – this mental harassment and agony wd take a toll on anyone let alone a mother of 3 like denise -

    • blahblahblah says:

      She has hired security, which is another cost, along with the therapy those girls are likely in and will be in for a supremely long time. Plus, restraining orders are pieces of paper wilfully ignored by monsters of his magnitude. Nothing else has stopped him, what makes you think a piece of paper would?

      Plus, with someone like him, even if she runs, he’ll just chase after her.

      • Tourmaline says:

        I agree with Crumpet (sorry this posted under the wrong comment), Denise is doing what she needs to do. No, she can’t go into witness protection with the kids. Not fighting for the trust money for the children is not going to placate Charlie in the end. Yes the gloves are off and good for her.

      • Lady D says:

        I’ve said this before, restraining orders need to come with a gun and enough lessons that the victim, female or male, has the confidence to use it if they have to. At the very least give them a taser. A piece of paper is not going to stop a monster like Charlie Sheen from killing a woman.

  14. Crumpet says:

    I’m glad Denise is looking healthier. I suppose this horrible drama contributed to her weight loss that started a couple of years ago. She absolutely needs to protect her daughters from Sheen, and I am glad she is finally going after him. Someone needs to.

  15. serena says:

    I don’t care how much he destroy himself, but he should never be allowed near his children ever again. I don’t even want to think about how he traumatized them for life.. it’s disgusting and he’s just a monster.
    I hope Denise gets her due money back AND MORE.

    Also his lawyer is a frigging idiot.

    • Jwoolman says:

      The kids will be ok. Their mother is responding as a calm adult and teaching them the right way also. She isn’t engaging in screaming matches. My bet is that she is explaining Charlie to her kids as best she can, without badmouthing him but making it clear that his behavior has nothing to do with them, they haven’t done anything to provoke it. My mother did that, although she was dealing with a much lower level of crazy in dear old dad. Stuff happens. You only need one good parent to grow up well. Pity the poor kids stuck with two losers as parents….

  16. Brunswickstoval says:

    I can’t understand why court documents like these are made public. In the country I live in they’re private to protect children. Yes he is a disgusting human being but to have this all in public for his kids to read over and over again and know the world is reading along too.

    One more thing that baffles me about America. I’m not saying she shouldn’t sue him. I just can’t understand why the system allows it to be made public.

    • Kitten says:

      I was really horrified that TMZ PUBLISHED that 9-year-old’s PRIVATE letter to her father.
      F*cking disgusting.

      • FingerBinger says:

        Tmz doesn’t try to hide they’re team Charlie.

      • Cindy says:

        Yes, how is that legal? They are minors and non-celebrities. How the hell is okay to publish private communications?

        Why can’t this guy just OD already….leave his children in peace. He said he was “born dead”? What a creepy, sinister comment. Monster.

      • AmyB says:

        Yeah I was shocked to see that too! Those poor girls :(

      • MAC says:

        It better (Legally) for the girls that the letter is on TMZ.
        I agree with you about TMZ.

      • Josefina says:

        TMZ is absolutely disgusting.

      • Snappyfish says:

        Kitten I agree 100%. The letter was something that should never have been released & it was the most alarming to me. At 9 a child should be in the 4th grade. That letter was not written on a 4th grade level. It is clear that this family turmoil is affecting these children in so many ways & hurting their developement & education. I understand wanting to allow children access to their father BUT at this moment in time it is NOT in their best interests.

        THAT should be the court & Denise’s first priority

  17. Lama Bean says:

    Marty Singer sure is an upstanding attorney. He represents some real pieces of work (Sheen and, at one time, Cosby). How the hell does he even open his mouth to say these things? Oh wait, money. He’s an enabler just the rest of the folks surrounding Charlie.

    Sheen is even worse than I thought. He should be in one of the “this is your brain on drugs” PSAs.

    • K2 says:

      The thing that really appals me is that he’s a trustee for two minor children, yet fighting to keep their money away from them and in the hands of their father. It isn’t Sheen’s money – he put it into trust for the kids – and the trustee’s responsibiility is to the beneficiaries of the trust, not the creator. That is basic legal ethics.

      Why can’t anyone get the creep struck off? Is there no regulatory body for lawyers in the States?

  18. bammer says:

    Brooke is in rehab again. Anybody know who’s taking care of the boys?

  19. Shannon says:

    Someone needs to investigate the crooked trustee, Denise is right – the money was designated for the girls so why is the trustee taking orders from Charlie? Huge conflict of interest!

    • kri says:

      Good point, Shannon.

    • someone says:

      Exactly. Hopefully the money will be returned to the trust and a new trustee established, but what if there is no money to refill the trust. Charlie may be broke.

    • imqrious2 says:

      Having just created my own trust, I can reply to this.

      It would all depend on whether it’s a revocable or an irrevocable trust.

      If it’s an irrevocable trust, then it’s basically locked, and no changes can be made to it.

      If it’s a revocable trust, and Charlie made himself the trustee, with the beneficiaries being his daughters, then he has the ability to change, or even close the trust without them having any say. He can do any buying or selling of any property, stocks, etc. that are held in that trust w/out anyone being able to say or do anything about it.

      • K2 says:

        But surely Denise took legal advice herself before all this mess? Would she really have put them in such a vulnerable position?

  20. Lucy says:

    I really hope Denise and the kids are able to find some well-deserved peace after this is over. I wish that could be sooner than it’ll probably be.

  21. Jwoolman says:

    Denise had to resort to what my mother had to do also: make copies of all correspondence between our dipstick dad and us. I imagine she had the girls turn on the speaker phone while talking with Charlie also if it was on a cell, and probably record on both cell and landline (plus listen on an extension). Supervised visitation to the max, to protect the kids.

    • MAC says:

      Your lucky that you have modern technology. Many mothers trying to get free of men like this with children did not. Imagine having go through your lawyer and there be no technology to document everything. He said she said=childhood nightmare.
      I am so proud of Denise she is sending a message to her daughters.

  22. JaneDoesWork says:

    God, those poor kids. I feel awful for them. Denise deserves a medal for dealing with this nut. I don’t know how she does it, the only confusing aspect of this for me is the article I saw in Dailymail. Here is the link: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-3413561/Denise-Richards-slashes-price-luxury-mansion-bought-divorce-Charlie-Sheen-takes-court-money-buy-new-home.html

    I’m confused as to why she is renting instead of living here? This look like the house that she moved out of to move into Charlie’s twisted promise for the girls. Maybe it’s too far from the school? Or she moved out to make it easier to sell?

    • swak says:

      I think it is too far from the school to live in. Think she was living in it, then Charlie did something and they had to find a new school.

    • H says:

      I saw that article too. I love her old house – I used to watch Denise’s reality show – and wondered why she doesn’t move back there. If that house is paid for, why waste $15,000 a month on renting?

    • Bridget says:

      It was too far from the kids’ school, if I remember correctly. Charlie got the girls kicked out of the one they attended when they lived there. He actively harassed the staff there.

    • lucy2 says:

      That is such a nice property, I too think I’d move back there and just drive the kids further to school every day, at least until this all settles down some.

  23. kri says:

    Wow. So just when I think he has reached peak low, he sinks further. He reminds me of Caligula. He is truly insane, and quite frankly those kids need to be helped now. They have a chance with therapy and time. Charlie has nothing. He’s just filled with darkness.

  24. thaisajs says:

    I’ve always been Team Denise, but honestly, at what point as a mom do you say that it’s more hurtful for your kids to have a relationship with their father than not? He’s so abusive and it’s not fair to those little girls. I understand why she keeps trying but at some point, isn’t it enough? I really feel for her and the girls.

    • Jaded says:

      Because it’s in their divorce agreement, and if she doesn’t abide by the visitation schedule he will come at her with all the power his gazillions of dollars can buy to make her life and her kids’ lives even more stressful and miserable than they already are. That poor woman lives in constant fear of his next move, and with a pond scum lawyer like Marty Singer who doesn’t have a shred of decency in his soul, Charlie would ruin them.

    • Bridget says:

      She doesn’t have a choice. They have a custody agreement in place and that is legally binding.

      • Kori says:

        It seems like she may finally have had enough–agreement or no. I hope she has. He shouldn’t be allowed near those kids. I hope she’s been able to compile enough over the years to get any visitation revoked or heavily supervised. And she’s taken the high road time and again so he would have basically nothing against her.

  25. nicegirl says:

    Denise is so TOUGH!! I am so impressed with her strength in supporting her children in the face of such constant and horrific opposition that is Charlie Sheen.

    The father of my eldest son is such a POS himself, it is exceedingly difficult to even speak with him – the antics, OMG. He must have taken a class in Charlie Sheen-type behaviors. He is also an habitual drug and alcohol user. It is hard for me to keep focus on my son’s needs, at times, because his father’s crap just wears me down so much, part of me wants to give up the fight for the well over 30K he owes for the benefit of the child (very past due & even current ordered support).

    Another obstacle is that we have no federal authority which governs child support from state to state, so in my case, the person just quits jobs repeatedly, goes on long visits out of state while unemployed, keeps the lions’ share of his work under the table for cash keeping purposes, etc. It feels as if I am the only person fighting for my son and it can get to be an exhausting burden, sometimes I just want to give up the $.

    Of course, that is what the other party is hoping for, that the rude taunts, nasty comments and the bad treatment of the child – ignoring bdays, holidays, and when asked about it, says I make it ‘too hard’ for him to call to speak to the kid, send a card, act in any way parental whatsoever – will push me into certifying that the debts are paid in full when not even a penny has come in toward the child.

    Often, the other party makes it out like the one who is OWED the money is the person who is ‘all about money’ – when it is really all about NOT paying the money, to the non paying parent. Like, they just want to keep their cash and shut up the other party. It seems like this happens A LOT and it is crap. I cannot imagine this is happening to only me – I am one of the ‘lucky’ ones, I have an income, a partner, and my son is well provided for – even if I have taken out OVER 30K in personal loans (which I would not have had to do if the child support had been paid in an anywhere near ‘timely’ manner) to provide the care, I have had the ability to do so.

    Scores of parents in our communities do not have other resources. Although I am nowhere near Denise in the level of resources I have, it troubles me that many in our country do not have any such options. When their child support does not come in, they’re screwed. I know the Sheen kids’ trust is not the same level of ‘child support’ as my poor person less than $300 per month 10+ years out, but as a parent providing for a child, it is the same.

    So that is why I think Denise is TOUGH! It is a hard fight. You go, lady.

  26. I noticed the defensive body language on the girls, God bless and protect them.

  27. anniefannie says:

    On a superficial note, how in the world has she managed to look so beautiful while dealing with this POS?!?
    Denise has continually tried to preserve a father/children relationship in the face of heartbreaking circumstances. I’ll never forget the reports of a trip to NY w/kids and Charlie and hired a hooker to have dinner with the family and spent the rest of the vaca imbibing and consorting w/ the escort!?
    This woman deserves a medal and some well deserved peace!!!

  28. Penelope says:

    My heart breaks for those poor girls. They’re going to need a lot of therapy.

    Charlie Sheen is an abusive, psychotic POS. Denise has been more than patient and diplomatic over the years with that heartless creep. Move far, far away and make a safe home for you and the girls, Denise. Nothing involving CS will end well.

    I’d be scared to death of him by now.

  29. K says:

    Ok I’ve never thought much of Denise as an actress (she sucks really) but my god she is a good and patient person. I don’t know how she hasn’t come close to losing it on him when he does this stuff.

    And really anyone is going to say anything bad about a woman trying to protect her 9 year old from the father threatening to kill them.

    Sorry but he shouldn’t be allowed to even see those kids ever, it’s not safe.

  30. J-Who says:

    I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: She has enough money to leave California with her girls, petition for Charlie’s rights to be terminated and start a new life without Charlie finding out where they are. It can be done. At some point you have to say to yourself that the money isn’t worth living in constant fear and abuse, especially at the expense of your children’s mental well being. Terminate his rights, the courts have plenty of proof of Charlie’s behavior and mental state to have it done and just move on with life far, far away from this poor excuse of a man.

    • suzanne says:

      I agree totally. The message she is sending to her daughters is wrong in my opinion…just because someone is family (or has money) does NOT mean you accept their abuse. Some people are toxic and simply will not change. Charlie Sheen has proven himself to be filth, and I would be put in jail before I allowed my kids around him.

    • Sansa says:

      i posted the same but it got lost on edit. Charlie is so crazy I think his treatment of Denise and his daughter is to abuse them because he knows they deserve better and he is pushing Denise to move on. I don’t get either why she does’t move on from her ex crack porn crazy husband except for huge amounts of money. Sure this could be worked out to amend the custody especially if the 55k a month were lowered? She should get out of that area and live like a normal person on 25k a month (!) and marry a nice doctor or somebody who would love her and her kids and be a good role model.

    • swak says:

      I get what you’re saying. It all depends on what the custody agreement says. She may not be able to move out of state due to the agreement. She needs to do it all legally and through the court system. Yes that sucks, but she could lose custody of the girls if she just takes them and runs. Then what? The court systems are slow, especially when it comes to family court. I have seen how it works.

      • J-Who says:

        that’s why I say to petition the court to terminate his rights. He shouldn’t even HAVE parental rights at this point.

    • lucy2 says:

      I don’t think she could disappear, too hard being famous and he’d find them pretty quickly. I agree with your comments about terminating his rights. I said above, she needs to have the courts seriously intervene here. Even if she never gets another penny from him, it would be worth it to be rid of him.

    • Holmes says:

      I completely agree. I’ve said before that I can’t understand the canonisation of Denise. However, I don’t think I was fully aware of what a psychopath Sheen was at that point. That being said…is there a reason these children have to attend a fee-paying school? Is there a reason they have to live in a (presumably) large house paid for by this jackarse? If she wants to maintain this lifestyle for herself and her children, she really needs to sort out a way to become financially independent from this moron. I just had a quick look at her IMDB and is appears that she works somewhat steadily–not in any big-budget stuff, but she is working. Where is tat money going?

      • Ennie says:

        He has money, he has to pay for his children. These are not Denise’s rights, these are the girls’ rights.
        He wants to waste away, then she has her lawyers to fight for something for the girls. They are too young to decide on not receiving any. Better them than charlatans and shady people.

  31. suzanne says:

    Charlie Sheen needs to be put down like a rabid dog, honestly. He’s a danger to others.

  32. cvb says:

    She should leave California. I do think her kids and Charlie’s other kids should get some money in a trust account rather than pretty much these hookers getting it.

    • Tourmaline says:

      Why should Denise have to to leave California? She graduated from high school in Oceanside; she’s lived there for several decades.

      Let Charlie leave California.

  33. Renae says says:

    I think she is putting herself and her girls at far more risk by going up against him. He is not mentally stable, and if he is dying from AIDS, I really think he would be capable of taking her life. This lawsuit over money is going to send him further over the edge. It’s just not worth it.

    • Colette says:

      Charlie Sheen is not dying of AIDS.He does not AIDS.He is HIV+.He will probably die of an overdose if anything.

    • Tourmaline says:

      I totally disagree…Charlie has been placated and enabled by people for so many years. He counts on it. And it hasn’t made him one iota less dangerous, insane, and douchey.

      Denise has to take this stand for her kids. It is not only to get their trust funded as it is supposed to be funded, but to put on the record the horrible abusiveness that he is spewing at her and the kids.

  34. amunet ma'at says:

    Let’s see he gets to keep his Hollywood Star and show in syndication but Cosby gets his show removed from syndication and his Hollywood Star removed, even after one of the cases against him was thrown out. Ooookkk. Charlie Sheen is trash and he deserves to be villainized.

  35. Deanne says:

    I lost respect for Dr. Oz a long time ago, but the fact he’s makng this sociopathic, POS a regular guest on his show, disgusts me even more. No mention of his abusive behaviour. They are basically doing PR for him by portraying him sympathetically. Meanwhile he’s hurling abuse at his ex-wife and children, threatening their lives and stealing money that was supposed to be in trust for them. His money problems aren’t because of child support, they are because he’s paid millions for drugs and hookers and as hush money. He’s literally garbage and Denise is a saint.

    • Christin says:

      Apparently most anyone can appear on that show. A month ago, he had a certain d-list singer (LR) on his show while she was in NYC. He let her sing a song about bowel movements at the end. Classy.

    • Tourmaline says:

      Dr. Oz is a pandering charlatan.

  36. KBeth says:

    He is a vile pig.
    Denise strikes me as a very decent person. I have no trouble believing her motivation is about protecting her children.

  37. MAC says:

    Well I think its time for the two daughters to have their own lawyer that ends Charlie’s parental rights. I think children in the United States should have the right to end a relationship that is abusive. In some states children do not have the right only the parent can sign off on terminating parental rights. That is deeply saddening to me. Even if they go no contact he will be in the news.

  38. Sam says:

    I’m fairly certain – someone here can correct me if I’m wrong – that Denise already has full legal and physical custody of her daughters. This was granted and arranged at some point after the initial divorce and custody agreement. So she already has the power to keep Charlie away from them or only allow him to see them when she decides it’s ok.

    This custody change supposedly came about after rumors of Charlie’s involvement with underage porn. Sleazy but if true then it actually worked out for the best. Now all she needs to do it insure the funds are forthcoming for the girls until they’re of age.

  39. Josefina says:

    Charlie Sheen is a horrible monster and I wish him a lot of suffering. Can’t say I’m sorry or that I feel like a bad person because of it. A man who sends death threats to his own daughters and tells them to f*k off is not worthy of my respect.

  40. boo says:

    This is such a tragedy for Denise and her girls, I totally understand the insanity of dealing with an addict. My ex-husband was and still is a habitual drug user, in and out of jails, when we married, he was still keeping it somewhat together. When our daughter was born he again began to use and started visiting jails all over L.A. County, on one of his longer stints, I divorced him and obtained sole custody of my child. I felt bad for a while that I did that to him, but I had to think of my daughter and I was not going to take her to see her daddy in jail, like I had seen so many women do. I was adamant about that. He fought me for child support, at one point even hinting that she was not his, I told him to arrange for a DNA test and I would submit her to that, he never went through with it, because he knew she was his. I fought for many years to get child support and he fought me all the way, finally I gave it up and never received anything from him. I still allowed him to see her when he was able, if he was sober and with supervision. My daughter is 21 yrs. old now, she is his only child, but there is no bond, he calls her and tries to see her but my daughter is just not that interested. Now that he is older he is trying to reconnect, but it’s too little to late. This is what Charlie has to look forward to, when he is an old feeble man, he will want his girls to look out for him and care for him, I don’t think that will happen, children have long memories, and he has treated them cruelly and their mother worse, karma is a bitch Charlie.

  41. Kat says:

    I don’t understand why Denise doesn’t get him arrested for making criminal threats.

    She needs to cut him out completely. She seems to really enjoy his money, but she needs to realize it’s not worth it. she needs to get a job and support herself and the kids on her own.

    • Mltpsych says:

      If you look at her IMDB page, Denise has been working as an actress steadily over the pat two years. So she has a job

  42. fee says:

    He just makes my skin crawl. It’s disgusting the stuff that he is allowed to legally get away with. As terrible as all of this is, I just keep thinking about all of the stuff that hasn’t been made public. Dude is a loose cannon and he is going to hurt someone-I just hope it’s himself and not anyone else.

  43. kanyekardashian says:

    I feel for the kids, having a horrible monster of a father like him, but honestly, it’s hard to feel for Denise Richards or any other woman who voluntarily gets involved with Charlie Sheen. They all know his background when they hook up with him, so they bring it on themselves. I’ll never understand the mentality of women who get involved with misogynists. It makes no sense to me.
