Hilarious star of Scary Movie 3 Charlie Sheen and hilarious star of Scary Movie 3 Denise Richards are getting divorced. This isn't news. The allegations of death threats and Charlie enjoying underage porn is news, though.
And on the day that Charlie Sheen was launching his new range of kid's clothing, too…
Back in January, Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards filed for divorce after a patch of on/offery. No reason was given at the time for the divorce, other than Charlie Sheen cryptically admitting on TV that he had been "a gigantic ass." What did that mean? Well, if Denise Richards is to believed, it meant that Charlie had gambled compulsively, abused prescription medication and threatened to have Denise killed after she questioned him over visiting porn websites featuring "very young girls."
Which we'd say was a pretty comprehensive definition of a "gigantic ass." After a 17-page piece of court paperwork detailing these claims was filed on Friday, a judge ordered Charlie Sheen to stay at least 300 feet away from Denise and their children. At the time, Denise Richards released a statement saying:
"I am disappointed that the situation has deteriorated to the point
that it has become necessary to seek the assistance of the court.
However, my primary concern is and always has been the welfare of the
children and this action today was taken to ensure their safety as well
However, Charlie Sheen denies all the allegations, telling People magazine at the launch of his Sheen Kidz clothing line:
"Obviously, what has taken place is vile, is unconscionable, is without
merit, is a transparent and immature smear campaign. She's claiming certain things. It's baseless."
The sudden nasty turn in the Charlie Sheen/ Denise Richards divorce has sadly relegated the David Hasselhoff divorce down a division. As entertaining as claims of petty swearwords and threats to drive a car through a house, grabbing jewelry on the way are, they don't stand much chance against alleged death threats and kiddie porn addictions.
However, Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards still have some way to go to reach the lunacy of the Alec Baldwin/ Kim Basinger custody battle. When Denise makes a chocolate bar for her kids with bespoke wrappers besmirching the reputation of Charlie, then we'll talk.
