Sheen's Anger At Richards' Child Protection Request
Charlie Sheen is furious with ex-wife Denise Richards, after she filed a court order requesting legal protection for her children against their actor father.
The former Bond girl, 36, filed the papers at Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday (19Sep07), in which she is seeking "the assistance of the court to obtain orders to protect her children" from Sheen, according to her lawyer Neal Raymond Hersh.
Defending his client's actions, he says, "She believes that Charlie has significant personal issues which he has failed to address and which require her to take action to protect her children.
"This is not a vindictive action. Any responsible parent in Denise's shoes would go to the ends of the Earth to protect her children."
The document is yet to be released into the public domain, but according to papers obtained by Access Hollywood, Richards is concerned about the "inappropriate behaviour... and conduct" of the Platoon star, particularly his "attraction to underage women and his sexual explicitness on the internet, including revealing his private parts."
But Sheen, 41, is not happy with the application to put an end to his daughters - Sam, three, and Lola, two - staying overnight and insists the accusations are false.
He says in a statement: "Clearly the mother of my children has no interest in responsible co-parenting when it comes to my relationship with our girls.
"The truth will prevail. It always does."
Sheen and Richards divorced in 2006 and the former couple have been battling over the custody of their children ever since. The actor recently appealed to court to land better custody terms which will allow him to hire his own nanny and spend more time with his children.
