Denise Richards on Charlie Sheen: 'We're Not in the Best Place'

April 22, 2011 (6:22 pm) GMT
Denise Richards has confirmed reports she offered to help take care of her ex-husband Charlie Sheen's young twins with estranged wife Brooke Mueller, despite admitting they are 'not in the best place'

divorced the former "" star in 2006, but they have remained close for the sake of their two daughters Sam, seven, and Lola, five.

The troubled actor is currently locked in a custody battle with over their twin boys, and it was rumoured former Bond girl Denise Richards had volunteered to look after the kids while Charlie Sheen tours the U.S. with his one-man comedy show and Mueller reportedly seeks help in rehab.

The actress admits her relationship with her ex is rocky, but she felt compelled to offer her services to ensure the kids were well taken care of.

During an appearance on U.S. TV show "Watch What Happens Live" on Thursday, she says, "We're not in the best place right now, to be honest with you. But I do still communicate with him... I offered (to help). I wasn't asking for custody or anything like that. I put it out several times over the last couple of years that if they need help, I'm here. I would love the boys to stay and be with the girls... I give Brooke a lot of credit."

But although Denise Richards will always have a soft spot for the embattled actor, it doesn't mean she approves of his bizarre behaviour.

She adds, "For me, it's very sad to see him on this path. I've heard he's chosen to use me in part of his tour (material), and that's hurtful. But that's his choice... He can do what he wants in his show... This is his lifestyle, and I've accepted it."
