Denise Richards is giving viewers an update about her relationship with eldest daughter Sami, whom she shares with ex-husband Charlie Sheen. The former “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star appeared on SiriusXM’s Jeff Lewis Live on February 11, where she opened up about her “strained” relationship with her 17-year-old daughter. Sami moved out of Richards’ home in September 2021 after she claimed in a now-deleted TikTok video that she was living in an “abusive household,” Page Six reported.
“Honestly, I have a strained relationship with her,” Richards admitted, according to People. “I know we’ll get back to where we were eventually but right now, it is strained.” Richards then said that she was not happy about Sami living with her ex-husband, saying she “would love for her to live with me,” but that the situation is “difficult” because of the temptations of living in Los Angeles.
“We didn’t grow up with Postmates and Uber where you have everything that you want,” Richards explained, noting that she enforces “certain rules” at her house that are different from Sheen’s, and she does not “agree with certain things” that her ex does as a parent. Richards also confirmed that Sami had dropped out of high school. Meanwhile, Sheen has been enjoying Sami’s presence, and told Us Weekly in September 2021 that they were “having a ball.”
