Charlie Sheen is no longer required to pay child support, Denise Richards ‘blindsided’ by court ruling
Denise Richards did not anticipate a judge’s ruling Monday ordering ex-husband Charlie Sheen, the father of her 17-year-old daughter Sami and 16-year-old daughter Lola, to reduce his child support payments to “zero dollars per month.”
However, according to both People and MSN, this is exactly what happened. According to a source, the actress from The Bold and the Beautiful was not aware of the upcoming court date.
“Charlie filed [to stop paying child support] two years ago and kept pushing the court date, so Denise was very surprised that it happened yesterday while she is out of town filming,” the source said. “She was blindsided.”
An insider told the mag that Richards had been aware of the court date for six months.
Richards and Sheen, who were married from 2002 to 2006, had a contentious divorce at times. The girls both lived with their mother for years, but Sami announced last month that she had moved out of her mother’s “hell house” in a TikTok video that was later made private.
According to a People source, Sami’s younger sister does not live with Sheen.
“She lives with both of her parents and stays with Charlie when Denise is out of town. When Denise is back, Lola will be with her,” the unidentified person said. “This is very disappointing for Denise, but also not surprising. Charlie is pitting the girls against their mother, which is horrible.
At the time of Sami’s post confirming her residence with her Hot Shots! dad remarked, “Sam’s amazing. I love her and all my children unconditionally. We’re having a ball. GED here we come!!!”
With another ex-wife, Brooke Mueller, he has twin sons, Bob and Max, who are 12 years old. He also has an adult daughter with his high school girlfriend, Cassandra.
