Denise Richards has some daddy issues.
The 49-year-old actress — who shares two teenage daughters with ex-husband Charlie Sheen — revealed that she’s concerned Sheen’s infamous past could have an impact on their girls.
“There’s a lot that the kids don’t know about their dad, and I want to keep it that way,” Richards said during a confessional on Wednesday’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”
Richards said she works to keep kids Sam, 16, and Lola, 14, from learning certain information about their father for fear they might develop “issues.”
“Even though he’s Charlie Sheen, that is still, to them, their dad,” she continued, alluding to his very public history with drugs, partying and women. “I never talk badly about him and I want him to be part of their lives because I met a lot of the women that Charlie entertained and a lot of them had father-daughter issues. And I do not want that to be our girls.”
The fired “Two and a Half Men” star, 54, and Richards were married from 2002 to 2006. In addition to Sam and Lola, Richards adopted daughter Eloise Joni in 2011.
Meanwhile, Sheen also shares daughter Cassandra Estevez, 35, with ex Paula Profit and twins Bob and Max, 11, with ex-wife Brooke Mueller.
Also during Wednesday’s episode, Richards discussed with husband Aaron Phypers, 47, that after she attempted to take Sheen to court over allegedly owing $450,000 in late child support, the “Anger Management” star publicly called her a “coward.”
“Now I have a hearing set for November. But I do not want to go through all of that. I just don’t,” she explained. “It’s not just a one-time thing where you just show up to court. It’s like an ongoing thing where you can have depositions, declarations from different people. And that’s something, you know, the girls are going to be able to hear.”
