Denise Richards went too far when she falsely accused her ex, Charlie Sheen, of molesting their daughters – and now Sheen will move for full custody of the kids by charging that their mother is a liar.
Richards dragged Sheen into a Los Angeles courtroom early last week for a mysterious "emergency" child-custody hearing to screen videos of their girls, Sam and Lola, supposedly acting in strange and disturbing ways. Sheen’s lawyers – who got the "evidence" dismissed – presented their own videos of the girls acting normally at his house.
A source said, "Denise’s accusations were vile. She was basically trying to say Charlie [manipulated] the kids and acted inappropriately with them. It’s disgusting and totally untrue. Charlie is furious . . . Denise has really pushed it too far this time.
"She came after Charlie because the ratings on her E! reality show [‘It’s Complicated’] have tanked and they were threatening not to renew," the source said. "She thinks a court battle would be good for ratings so she wants all overnight visits with the girls ceased, and monitored visits with her nanny. She invited the media circus to the hearing and even wanted reporters in the judge’s chambers – which wasn’t allowed. It’s ridiculous."
Sheen is said to be so furious, he’s "out to prove Denise’s lack of veracity and sue her in civil court for defamation. Then he’ll sue for child custody. "Sheen feels Richards has defamed him, especially after she denied sending [current wife] Brooke an e-mail in which she claims to want his sperm for another child. Richards says the e-mail is a fake. Sheen claims he has the e-mail and is getting forensic computer geeks to verify its authenticity.
"Charlie has now been forced to take a stand and do what’s best for the girls," our insider said. Reps for Richards and Sheen declined comment.
Who knows who is right here – but I cannot stand her she is so phony…. and seems to do anything she can to attrack media attention. Charlie does not seem like a saint either. Maybe the kids would be better off without both of them!
