Charlie Sheen’s Ex-Wife, Denise Richards, Has Known That He Was HIV Positive For Years
Now that several sources, including ex-wife Brooke Mueller have come out about Charlie Sheen being HIV positive, the question that everyone has been asking is about Denise Richards. The actress/model is the mother to Sheen’s two daughters, Sam and Lola, and even received temporary custody of Sheen and Mueller’s twin boys when they were both unable to care for their children. Mueller has been in and out of rehab for years and admits that she was having a psychotic break while doing too many drugs with her ex. According to Us Weekly, Denise Richards has known about her ex-husband’s health for several years now. The couple wed in 2002 but divorced when Richards was pregnant with Lola in 2006, four years after they tied the knot. Sam is now eleven and Lola is ten but a source claims that their father became infected after their parents divorced. Apparently, he has only known for a short period of time and that he “got infected after they were together, four years ago or so.” That would be around 2011 and what is interesting is that it has been reported that Richards asked for Charlie’s sperm in their divorce.
Did she know then and just wanted proof? Is that why she chose not to use it and adopt in 2012? Mueller, whose twins Bob and Max are now six, has declined to comment, though she did apparently send a text to the National Enquirer about when she learned of his status. Sheen has battled drug and alcohol abuse and was infamously fired from his hit television show “Two and A Half Men” and replaced with Ashton Kutcher. He tried rehab several times but felt it just wouldn’t work for him, as he once told “Good Morning America”:”[Rehab] is just not for me. We live in a country where it’s always Miller time. What are you gonna do? It’s happy hour somewhere in the world.” Most recently, he put in a bid to be Donald Trump’s Vice President if he were to win the nomination for the Republican Party.
More will be revealed in an interview with Matt Lauer on The Today Show, but for now, we just have to wait. Richards has yet to say anything confirming or denying her knowledge, despite Sheen calling her a horrible mother at one time. We wish his family all the best as they deal with another unimaginable and tragic Charlie Sheen episode.
