Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen's Divorce


Actors Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards were on and off so many times in 2005 that most people just stopped counting. Just when it seemed like love was back in the air for these two, Denise gave Charlie the final boot. She had apparently had enough of his wicked ways and filed for and received a restraining order against Charlie on April 21, 2005.

Charlie's Loves the Ladies

Years back, Charlie was named in the Heidi Fleiss escort scandal as one of her best clients. He had a thing for the ladies, but this was before his future ex-wife came into the picture. Friends warned Denise to stay away from Charlie because he was simply a playboy and womanizer. She ignored the warnings and ended up marrying Charlie anyway. Now the truth comes out and it looks like her friends may have actually been right.

Charlie Likes to Surf the Web

Denise is now claiming in a report that her ex had a hungry appetite for internet pornography, sometimes involving underage women. She alleges that Sheen "belonged to disturbing sites which promoted very young girls, who looked underage to me," according to her statement. She added that other sites Charlie frequently visited involved "gay pornography also involving very young men who did not look like adults." Of course, Sheen is denying all of these reports.

Charlie Would Allegedly Get Violent

Denise filed a sworn declaration in the Los Angeles Superior Court, alleging that Sheen assaulted her and threatened her life during a December 2005 altercation at her home. She claims that while visiting with the couple's two children, Sheen called her a series of vulgar names and shoved her to the ground in front of their children.

Charlie Fights Back

The couple had originally agreed to a confidentiality agreement regarding the details of their divorce, but Charlie became fed up. He could no longer take the negative publicity being thrown at him and decided to speak out against Denise's allegations. He said, "It's the most vile attack and it's sad for my children. This is a horrible departure from sound, sane, responsible co-parenting." Sheen goes on to say, "This clearly illustrates the type of harassment, the type of psychological terrorism, the type of mind control I've been subjected to and to have willfully chosen to keep private because that was the deal.”

He Said She Said

Denise claims that Charlie had constant problems with gambling, drug use, and internet porn and now wants him to pay for his behavior. Charlie alleges that Denise is only making these claims to sabotage the success of his new clothing line called "Sheen Kidz". At this point, it will be up to the judges and the court to decide what will happen next for this Hollywood couple.
