Denise Richards and her ex-husband Charlie Sheen have had a rollercoaster relationship for many years but they always seem to have found common ground when it came to raising their two daughters, Sami Sheen and Lola Sheen.
The former couple called it quits in 2005 and finalized their divorce in 2006.
Now, Denise and Charlie are struggling to agree on parenting when it comes to their 17-year-old daughter Sami. This news comes a week after it was revealed that Sami moved in with her dad amid abuse allegations against her mother.
“Denise is just like any other divorce parent dealing with a rebellious teenage daughter,” a source tells Us Weekly. “It’s better for Sami if Denise and Charlie were co-parenting her during this time. They are not. Sami is living with Charlie at his apartment in Malibu.”
“Lola does spend time with her sister, but she lives with her mom. Lola goes back and forth between her parents whenever Denise is working, as she is now,” the source continues. “Denise wants her daughters to have boundaries, not be out all hours of the night, and she has no desire to be their friend at this time of their life. The time will come later as the girls grow older for Denise to be their friend.”
The source adds, “Charlie is the good time dad, and well, rules and curfew aren’t really set in stone. And that is why Sami went to live with her dad.”
As we previously reported, Sami recently claimed in a now private TikTok video that during 2020 she was “trapped” in an “abusive” home.
“Now: finally moved out of the hell house, had a spiritual awakening, own 2 cats, happy, single, full of self-love, and dropped out of high school :),” the teen wrote in the video.
After the video went viral, Charlie released a statement via his rep, saying, that Sami is doing “amazing.” He added, “I love her and all my children unconditionally. We’re having a ball. GED here we come!”
