Charlie Sheen claims Denise Richards is only out for money after she files lawsuit alleging he's not providing for his children

Charlie Sheen's Lawyer Fires Back After Denise Richards Alleges He's Not Providing for Their Kids

Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen are back in the headlines over a lawsuit that the actress filed against her ex-husband, claiming he was no longer honoring a trust that assured her and their kids, Lola and Sam, had a home and financial security.

While Sheen's attorney says it's all for "money, money, money," Richards claims she just wants the former Two and a Half Men star to provide for his children.

"Denise is fighting for her children. This has nothing to do with her, the money is for her kids," Richards' rep told ET. "This is about him providing for the children as he agreed to do."

However, Sheen's attorney, Martin Singer, claims the suit is all for Richards' financial gain. "This motion is nothing more than money, money, money," Singer told ET. "Denise has received $660,000 tax free for almost 10 years, and it's not enough for her. [This is] besides the approximate $10 million she received from Charlie under their short marriage."

In the court documents obtained by TMZ, there are a number of text messages that are purportedly from Sheen to his children where he slams Richards. In a 2013 text which, according to the legal docs, was sent to 10-year-old Lola, the sender writes: "Have a merry Xmas with your loser f***s**t mom ... your dad is a rock star genius ... your mom is a puss wart."

"The texts were to Denise," Singer said of the messages. "It is very sad that she uses the children to get more money from Charlie and makes it almost impossible for Charlie to see his daughters."

According to TMZ's summary of the court documents, Richards claims she was promised that her and her children would not be evicted if she agreed to move into a house Sheen purchased next door to him in Mulholland Estates. She says the agreement was not honored and now she's renting a place for $15,000 a month.

Richards claims that upon Sheen revealing he was HIV positive, he also said he "wanted to repair his relationship with his children." The 44-year-old actress is now reportedly asking Sheen to pay $1.2 million toward the purchase of a home. She says the money was noted in their trust agreement for their kids.

Just weeks prior to Sheen revealing to the world his HIV diagnosis, Richards appeared on the Allegedly podcast with Theo Von, and talked about her four-year marriage to Sheen. "Charlie, when I married him, he wasn't a bad boy. He was sober for almost four years. He was a very different person," she said. "His lifestyle was very, very different. He was a former bad boy, I guess."
