Denise Richards is upset by the recent ruling that she will no longer receive child support from Charlie Sheen, saying she was “blinded” by the situation.
According to reports, Richards is adamant she was surprised by the hearing that took place while she was out of town filming a movie in Canada. Now the actress says she was “caught off guard” and was unable to properly argue the case.
âCharlie filed a case two years ago and kept pushing back the trial date, so Denise was very surprised that this happened while she is out of town filming, âsaid a source close to Denise. Adding: âShe was blinded. Now he is handling the situation.
Denise Richards says she was not aware of child support hearing
As we reported, an LA County Court judge granted Sheen’s request to reduce her child support obligation to ZERO, as well as clear any arrears that might have been due in 2018. Of course, Denise is “very saddened by the whole situation”, and says that she learned of the victory of the court while she was in Ontario, in Canada, for the shooting of her last film, “Wickenburg”.
It should be noted that sources linked to Charlie said Richards was aware of the hearing for the past six months.
Surprisingly, the daughter of the former couple makes the headlines in this case after accusing Denise of having an “abusive” household after the 17-year-old moved in with her father. At the time, Sami Sheen posted a video on TikTok with a moving message, saying, â1 year ago today: trapped in abusive household, hated myself, would go days without eating or sleeping, incredibly depressed, hated school, etc … “
Denise Richards Says Charlie Sheen Has No “Rules” For Their Daughters
The post was followed by another video of her looking happy, saying, “Now I have finally moved out of hell house, had a spiritual awakening, I own 2 cats, luckily single, full of self-esteem and I dropped out of high school :). â
A source from Denise responded to the allegations, saying, âShe’s a mother and a parent and there are rules. [Sami] didn’t want to follow the rules. Charlie did not support the implementation of Denise’s rules. He has a different way of being a parent and Sami has decided to live with his father.
It looks like the situation is getting a bit unpleasant, after an insider said it was “very disappointing for Denise, but not surprising either.” Adding: “Charlie pits girls against their mother, which is horrible.”
Former couple’s second daughter continues to live with Denise Richards
The former couple share another daughter – Lola – who continues to live with Denise Richards. âShe lives with both parents and stays with Charlie when Denise is not in town. When Denise returns, Lola will be with her, âthey said.
As to why Denise has no say in the situation … according to California law, after the age of 14, a child of a divorced couple can change parents with whom he lives depending on “the custody preference ‘- as long as the other parent’s household is detrimental to the child.
At this point, it’s unclear if Denise will challenge the court ruling, but the girls are approaching the age of 18 – and that will trigger the end of the payments anyway.
