Dueling statements issued by Charlie Sheen, Denise Richards
After expressing his displeasure Saturday with the current custodial arrangement in place between he and ex-wife Denise Richards — specifically a provision which requires supervision of his visits with the couple’s daughters Sam, 3 and Lola Rose, 2 — Charlie Sheen shows no signs of stopping the war of words anytime soon. In a statement issued yesterday, Charlie said:
Until I’m granted the ability to hire my own nanny, [Denise Richards] is required to provide one and I was terribly insulted that she felt her ‘assistant’ was a suitable replacement. If it’s unfortunate that I’m speaking, it’s ‘unfortunate’ that an incredibly loving and responsible father and his terrifically capable fiancé are being subjected to these transparent and unnecessary sanctions, that have nothing to do with responsible co-parenting and everything to do with punishment and control. As long as I am forced to live under these conditions with my children, people are going to hear about it.
Denise promptly fired back, criticizing Charlie for airing the issue publicly instead of privately.
I was disappointed to learn of my ex-husband Charlie Sheen’s current statement regarding our personal affairs. this was and should still be a private matter that we as responsible parents settled privately. I stand by that agreement and I will continue to do what is best for our children while attempting to keep this family situation a private matter.
Sam and Lola are the ex-couple’s only children; Charlie is currently engaged to actress Brooke Mueller.
