Charlie Sheen is speaking out over being “escorted” by his ex-wife’s assistant while on a beach outing with his kids Saturday.
MSNBC reports that the “Two and a Half Men” star has been in a long battle with Denise Richards over visitation rights with daughters Sam, 3, and Lola, 2, since their divorce was final November 2006.
According to MSNBC, the court-ordered custodial arrangement states that visits between Sheen and his daughters must be supervised, and Richards has the authority to select which nannies accompany them on those visits.
According to People magazine, Sheen his fiancée and his two daughters went to the benefit on Saturday at a Beach House in Malibu.
An extra member of their group was Richards’ selected escort, who was reportedly not a nanny, but Denise’s personal assistant.
Sheen reportedly told People magazine on Saturday that the assistant was sent “because a real nanny was unavailable,” and referred to her as one of Richards’ “spies.”
Sheen spoke further on the matter today in a statement to “Access Hollywood”:
“Until I’m granted the ability to hire my own nanny, she is required to provide one and I was terribly insulted that she felt her ‘assistant’ was a suitable replacement. If it’s unfortunate that I’m speaking, it’s ‘unfortunate’ that an incredibly loving and responsible father and his terrifically capable fiancée are being subjected to these transparent and unnecessary sanctions, that have nothing to do with responsible co-parenting and everything to do with punishment and control. As long as I am forced to live under these conditions with my children, people are going to hear about it.”Note the date on this article may be incorrect due to importing it from our old system.
