L.A. baby! Charlie SheenAnd Denise Richards’ oldest daughter, Sami Sheen, has always been in the spotlight — and now she’s making headlines for her grown up choices.
The Anger ManagementAlum and the Love ActuallyIn 2004, Sami, the actress, welcomed Sami into her family almost two years after they were married in June 2002. Lola, their daughter, was born the following year.
Richards still remembers how she and Charlie started their family, even though the couple split in 2006.
“I actually like all of his movies. I think he’s a great actor,” the Real Girl Next DoorAuthor told Andy CohenWhen she was asked about her ex-husband, May 2020. “The first movie that I saw, my dad took me to see, was PlatoonWhen I was younger. So I like all his movies.”
Cohen asked Richards if he liked it. Scary Movie 5 — Charlie starred in Scary Movie 3, 4And 5 — to which she said yes. “Yeah, that’s actually where we conceived our daughter,” Richards confessed. “Four or 5,” she said, struggling to remember which of the sequels’ sets the act occurred on.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum revealed during an April 2020 episode of the Bravo series that she had tried to shield their girls from all of Charlie’s ups and downs. “Even though he’s Charlie Sheen, that is still, to them, their dad,” Richards said. “I never talk badly about him and I want him to be part of their lives.”
While the exes appeared to have a good coparenting dynamic, things changed in late 2021 when Sami claimed that she felt “trapped” while living with Richards. Charlie later confirmed that his eldest daughter had moved in with him amid tension between her mother and herself.
“Charlie is the good time dad, and well, rules and curfew aren’t really set in stone,” a source exclusively told Us WeeklySeptember 2021. “And that is why Sami went to live with her dad.”
Richards revealed that Sami and her relationship were still in flux after Sami began living full-time with her father. “Obviously, I would love for her to live with me,” the actress said on an episode of the “Jeff Lewis Has Issues” podcast. “She lived with me all these years, but I think it’s very difficult raising teenagers these days, especially in Los Angeles.”
Three months later, the mother-daughter pair appeared to be back on good terms after they spent Mother’s Day together. “Denise and Sami reconnected within the last month,” a source exclusively told UsIn May 2022. “They are getting along very well.”
Sami raised eyebrows the next month when she joined OnlyFans shortly after moving back home with Richards. Charlie exclusively told Us in a statement in June 2022 that he did “not condone” his daughter’s choice, making it clear that it “did not occur under my roof.”
Richards, however, said Us in a statement that Sami’s decision “wasn’t based on whose house she lives in. All I can do as a parent is guide her and trust her judgment, but she makes her own choices.”
