Court-ordered observer puts a damper on family time for Charlie Sheen
What was intended to be a fun-filled weekend of family activities was "sullied" by Denise Richards‘ personal assistant, Charlie Sheen complained Saturday. The assistant, whom Charlie described as a spy, tagged along with Charlie, his fiancee Brooke Mueller and his two daughters with Denise — 3-year-old Sam and 2-year-old Lola Rose– per a court order which requires that Charlie’s time with the girls be supervised.
According to the actor, "a real nanny" was unavailable so Denise sent her assistant instead.
That is the thing I have to put a stop to. I can’t spend quality time – times I’m never going to get again – quite frankly being observed by a perfect stranger.
Denise need not worry about the level of attention being paid to Sam and Lola while they are in his care, according to Charlie, who says that when it comes to entertaining the girls he and Brooke "try to keep it interesting."
We go to malls, to movies, to parks … We have stuff at the house that they are really excited about that isn’t double what they have at [Denise's] so when they come to my place, it’s special…It’s a very loving, safe, comforting, supportive, nurturing environment for these children. Brooke and I are incredibly stable.
The foursome — plus Denise’s assistant — spent Saturday at an Art of Elysium benefit in Malibu, and the girls thoroughly enjoyed their time with their father, Brooke says.
They played games, loved the arts and crafts, kids band and all of the food…We stayed for quite awhile and made a day of it. We all ate too much!
Despite the unwelcome guest, Charlie also described the day as "fabulous."
We are out with the kids and supporting what matters.
An attorney for Denise said,
It is unfortunate that Charlie is discussing this matter in the pressin an attempt to discredit Denise. Unfortunately, Charlie fails todisclose what he and Denise have agreed to insofar as his visits withthe children are concerned, and the truth about why a third party isrequired for all of his visits.
Denise has acted and will continue toact in the best interests of her children and to take all reasonablesteps to protect them.
