Denise Richards Refuses Extra Child Support For Charlie Sheen’s Twins

Denise Richards, who was awarded custody of Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller’s twins while Mueller is in rehab, has refused additional child support from the Anger Management star.

Richards currently receives $55,000 a month from Sheen for her own daughters, 7-year-old Lola and 9-year-old Sam, and Mueller receives the same amount for her twin sons, Bob and Max. Sheen offered Richards more money while the boys are in her care, but the Blue Mountain State actress declined.

“Charlie is extremely generous, and wanted to make sure having the twins in Denise’s care didn’t place a financial strain on her. Denise was thankful for the offer, but declined because she has the financial means to take care of them herself. She isn’t doing this for the money,” a source told Radar Online.

The source added, “There have been many times over the last year that Charlie has said the best thing he ever did was marryingand having children with Denise, but the worst thing was ever letting her go. Denise is the one person in his life that he truly trusts.”

Richards’ father, Irv, has also been spending time with the twins because she “wants to have as many males around Bob and Max because they are at such an impressionable age.” Sheen has also been spending more time with his twin sons since he lives close to Richards.

Denise Richards was Charlie Sheen’s second wife, and the two were married in 2002. Richards filed for divorce in March 2005 while she was pregnant with the couple’s second daughter, Lola, and the divorce was finalized in 2006.

Sheen married socialite Brooke Mueller in 2008, and she gave birth to the couple’s twins on March 14, 2009. Mueller has been in and out of rehab 20 times, and her sons were removed from her home by the L.A. County Department of Child and Family Services on May 2. Since Richards has cared for Bob and Max in the past, it made sense for them to be placed with her again.
