Sami Sheen: Charlie Sheen, Denise Richards’ Daughter's Ups, Downs (2024)

L.A. baby! Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards’ oldest daughter, Sami Sheen, has always been in the spotlight — and now she’s making headlines for her grown up choices.

The Anger Management alum and the Love Actually actress welcomed Sami in 2004, nearly two years after tying the knot in June 2002. The pair expanded their family the following year when daughter Lola was born.

While the duo split in 2006, Richards fondly remembers how she and Charlie began their family.

“I actually like all of his movies. I think he’s a great actor,” the Real Girl Next Door author told Andy Cohen in May 2020 when asked about her ex-husband. “The first movie that I saw, my dad took me to see, was Platoon when I was younger. So I like all his movies.”

Cohen questioned whether Richards liked Scary Movie 5 — Charlie starred in Scary Movie 3, 4 and 5 — to which she said yes. “Yeah, that’s actually where we conceived our daughter,” Richards confessed. “Four or 5,” she said, struggling to remember which of the sequels’ sets the act occurred on.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum revealed during an April 2020 episode of the Bravo series that she had tried to shield their girls from all of Charlie’s ups and downs. “Even though he’s Charlie Sheen, that is still, to them, their dad,” Richards said. “I never talk badly about him and I want him to be part of their lives.”

While the exes appeared to have a good coparenting dynamic, things changed in late 2021 when Sami claimed that she felt “trapped” while living with Richards. Charlie later confirmed that his eldest child had moved in with him amid tension with her mother.

“Charlie is the good time dad, and well, rules and curfew aren’t really set in stone,” a source exclusively told Us Weekly in September 2021. “And that is why Sami went to live with her dad.”

Richards revealed in February 2022 that she and Sami were still navigating their relationship after she started living with her father full-time. “Obviously, I would love for her to live with me,” the actress said on an episode of the “Jeff Lewis Has Issues” podcast. “She lived with me all these years, but I think it’s very difficult raising teenagers these days, especially in Los Angeles.”

Three months later, the mother-daughter pair appeared to be back on good terms after they spent Mother’s Day together. “Denise and Sami reconnected within the last month,” a source exclusively told Us in May 2022. “They are getting along very well.”

The following month, Sami raised eyebrows when she joined OnlyFans, shortly after moving back in with Richards. Charlie exclusively told Us in a statement in June 2022 that he did “not condone” his daughter’s choice, making it clear that it “did not occur under my roof.”

Richards, however, told Us in a statement that Sami’s decision “wasn’t based on whose house she lives in. All I can do as a parent is guide her and trust her judgment, but she makes her own choices.”

The following year, Charlie told Us that he has since changed his outlook on his daughter’s choice of profession.

“Denise has illuminated a variety of salient points, that in my haste, I overlooked and dismissed,” he told Us in June 2023 via a statement from his publicist. “Now more than ever, it’s essential that Sami have a united parental front to rely upon, as she embarks on this new adventure. From this moment forward, she’ll have it abundantly.”

Addiction Conversations

The Paper Empire alum opened up on the Today show in July 2011 about how Charlie’s public outbursts and addiction struggles led her to having a heart-to-heart with their two children. "I was just lying to them about so much and covering up things and totally lying. It was just getting too confusing that I had to sit down with them,” Richards confessed. "It's too early [for them to understand]. I told them enough for them to make sense of things that were going on."

She noted that she was “of course” concerned over the wellbeing of her ex-husband, adding, "He's the father of our children… [But] he's also a survivor. If anyone can pull themselves together, it's Charlie."

Feeling ‘Trapped’

Sami claimed in a TikTok video in September 2021 that she felt “trapped” in her mom and stepdad Aaron Phypers’ house in 2020 before making a change. “1 year ago today: trapped in an abusive household, hated myself, would go days without eating or sleeping, insanely depressed, hated school, etc …” the teenager wrote alongside a video of herself crying.

Sami then cut to a smiling video, saying, “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 :).”

Switching Things Up

The Three Musketeers actor confirmed in September 2021 that Sami was living with him after her drama with Richards and that she was taking a break from school. “Sam’s amazing. I love her and all my children unconditionally,” Charlie told Us through his rep, Jeff Ballard. “We’re having a ball. GED here we come!”

A source exclusively told Us at the time that Richards was “saddened” by the drama and still loved Sami “very much” despite her change of address. “Denise set normal rules that any parent would be setting. She’s a mom and a parent and there are rules,” the insider said. “She didn’t want to follow the rules. Charlie didn’t support implementing Denise’s rules. He has a different way of parenting and Sami decided to live with her dad.”

All Grown Up

She rang in her 18th birthday in March 2022 with an elegant party with friends in West Hollywood, California. The Bold and the Beautiful alum celebrated her daughter’s milestone via social media, seemingly extending an olive branch amid their “strained” relationship.

“In a blink of an eye you’re 18 …. !!!! Happy Birthday my beautiful Sami. I love you so much,” Richards wrote via Instagram alongside a photo slideshow. “Privately many more words to share with you. I love you unconditionally and I am very blessed and grateful to be your mom. And Nana is looking down celebrating with you. I love you my sweet Sam. Happy 18th Birthday!” Sami replied, “Thank you so much mom I love you too.”

“Happy Mother’s Day !! I love u so much mom,” Sami captioned an Instagram photo with Richards on the holiday in May 2022, seemingly confirming that things between the two had turned a corner. “U have no idea how grateful I am to have u in my life 💗💐🥂.”

A source later told Us that the mother-daughter pair had “reconnected” recently and are “getting along very well.”

NSFW

Sami turned heads in June 2022 when she joined OnlyFans, which is known as an adult-only content sharing space. “I do not condone this but since I’m unable to prevent it, I urged her to keep it classy, creative and not sacrifice her integrity,” Charlie exclusively told Us in a statement at the time, noting that Sami no longer lived with him and was back with Richards.

'Overwhelming' Outreach

The teenager sent a message to her subscribers after receiving an influx of DMs on her OnlyFans account. "I'm trying my best to respond to all of your messages, please don't get offended to take it personal[ly] if I don't get back to you soon enough," she wrote in a June 2022 Instagram Story, adding that she was "very appreciative" and "extremely grateful" for the support. "But it is quite overwhelming ... I'll get back to you as soon as I can, I promise."

Sami also promoted new OnlyFans content alongside a sultry selfie of herself wearing a white bra top and red lipstick.

Making Peace

In July 2022, Sami told TMZ that she's "totally fine" with her dad not being supportive of her OnlyFans venture. When asked if he'd come around on the subject at all, she claimed, "No, he hasn't, not too much." She also praised her "supportive" mom, adding that she has no problem with Richards' decision to join the NSFW platform. "I don't mind at all. I'm happy for her," Sami said.

Defending Her OnlyFans Account

“I am not a [p*rn] star and I don’t meet up with people. I don’t film myself having sex. I don’t do that,” Sami explained in a TikTok video, which she posted in June 2023. “I’ve been doing [OnlyFans] for almost a full year now and I love my job. There’s absolutely nothing that anyone could say to make me want to get a different job at the moment.”

Sami noted that she had “no judgment” toward people who engage in sex work, adding, “The only reason I said I’m a [sex] worker is because my main source of income is from my [OnlyFans]. And if people did their f—king research, they would realize that there’s multiple forms of [sex] work.”

That same month, Charlie told Us in a statement via his publicist that “from this moment forward,” Sami will “abundantly” have a “united parental front to rely upon” no matter what choices she makes regarding OnlyFans.
