Charlie Sheen Threatens Custody War with Denise

3/4/2011 1:52 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen has been yakking with Denise Richards, threatening to strip her of child custody ... sources connected with the former couple tell TMZ.  

Denise Richards Charlie Sheen
We're told Charlie has gone on an attack campaign against Denise in the last two weeks, accusing her of being an awful mother, a loser, and wishing her a slow death. 

We're told Charlie is particularly enraged at Denise because yesterday he asked her to bring the kids over to his home to shoot a segment for  "Dateline" today.  We're told Denise refused to bring the kids over, and Charlie went ballistic.

And, sources say, Charlie has communicated with Denise since we posted the story this morning -- that Denise will not allow their kids around Charlie -- threatening to go to court and change the custody order, among other scathing comments.

Charlie Sheen Doesn't Hit Women (Oh, Really?)
by Jeanne Sager
on March 1, 2011 at 2:45 PM

Have you heard the news? Charlie Sheen is now the hero to the All-American male. Able to take more drugs than nature allows and still survive. He's able to rant on network TV and avoid the psych ward. Able to convince a bevy of "goddesses" to move in with him after he successfully did the above plus lost his job on Two and a Half Men (where, let's face it, he didn't do any work to begin with -- he just played a lazy drunk).

Who knew being a wife-beating criminal was such a great thing, America? Yup. While certain American males are sitting, as you read this, furiously typing "how the f--k do I get Charlie Sheen's life?" they're conveniently ignoring a whole long history of Charlie Sheen's brushes with the law. Piers Morgan hasn't. In a bit released from tonight's highly anticipated interview, Sheen claims:

Women are not to be hit. They are to be hugged and caressed.

Oh, really? Remember the time he allegedly slammed a girlfriend's head into the ground, knocking her unconscious? How about that time he choked his own wife? America, let's wake up. You are currently fascinated with a man who is a criminal, and a dangerous one at that.

Sheen's goddesses, Natalie Kenly and Rachel Oberlin, plus soon-to-be ex-wife Brooke Mueller and two of his children, are now said to be living with a man who was once arrested on felony assault charges for threatening Mueller with a knife and trying to choke her (he was later convicted). These women and children are living with a guy who allegedly once slammed girlfriend Brittany Ashland into a marble floor, then threatened to kill her if she told anyone about the assault. A guy who didn't care that ex-wife Denise Richards was holding daughter Lola in her arms when she says he pushed her to the ground, making death threats. And let's not forget way back in 1990, Sheen "accidentally shot" then-fiancee Kelly Preston in the arm. He wasn't charged, but Preston immediately broke off the engagement (moving on to marry John Travolta).

Still sound like a guy we should be laughing about and celebrating for living the high life? Really? Because that's just brushing over the domestic violence charges. We also have Sheen's alleged trashing of a room at the Plaza Hotel last fall, when -- surprise, surprise -- his "escort" was said to be locked in a closet, terrified.

We could go on. Talk about the rehab stints. His link to Heidi Fleiss. But we shouldn't need to.

Charlie Sheen may think he's a tiger with Adonis DNA. I think he's a s***bag. America, when are you going to follow suit?

Team Charlie. You go mister.
I hope Heidi Fleiss comes out and OUTS Denise for the skank she is. I so hope so.
Talk about a nobody skank opportunist who road his coattails. And look at those girls. All scared and weird shy cause her Denise. I despise that stupid beyotch and every other gold digger like her.

Remain yourself Charlie. YOU.ARE.GOLD.
Denise, sit and spin and break all your mirrors cause girl, you are looking pitiful. Oh and you're a skank husband stealer too. Love Heather. Dumb azz Ho, always going to be one Denise.

As crazy as Charlie. Maybe just a paid TMZ troll sent here to stir things up for more site hits? Otherwise, I am going to have to surmise that Charlie's remaining fans are just stark raving lunatics.

Yep, Charlie, "winner," the court SURELY is going to award you custody after wishing a slow death for Denise because she wouldn't allow the kids to go on "Dateline" - NOT! More likely, the court will grant her a restraining order against you to keep 1000 feet away from her at all times.

He's so crazy; why is he still given a medium in which to issue his insane rants? Why isn't he in a mental hospital at this point?

Say what you will about Denise she has proven herself a very good mother, never parades her kids for photo-ops (hear that Brangelina?) and doesn't abuse drugs or alcohol. She had a reality show but she was just trying to make a living and was was doing absolutely nothing wrong as a parent. Honestly, would YOU let your kids near this loser right now? Not very likely. I questioned her judgement marrying and producing children with that loser but he is probably very charming when he is acting sane.

Denise is doing the right thing!! No kids should be around him!

Uh... hello! I wouldn't let him have the kids over too. He sounds like a psycho. He is on the verge of losing everything, including his life if he doesn't change things pronto.

I did not think highly of Denise a few years ago, but now she is doing what is best for her kids. KUDOS DENISE. People grow.

Charlie however, is losing, mostly his mind and hid dignity. NO ONE THINKS IT IS A GOOD TIME TO HAVE KIDS ANYWHERE NEAR YOU.

It is not Denises fault or Mr. Lorre, or The netework, or Warner Brothers or the latest exwifes, or the hooker you terrorized while you trashed a hotel roon, or your agent, or anyone else you try to demean and/or sue. The common factor in all the wars you've waged is....YOU.

Denise is coming out of this looking like an ALL STAR for having put up with you in the past and for looking out for her kids. DEAL WITH THAT CHARLIE!

Denise, keep not responding or inabling, it appears to drive him nuts. You probably know by now he has massive control issues.

Also take a note from Oksana and tape everything and save those emails and keep witnesses nearby.

Just sugguesting

I smell B.S. with the validity of this story.

But I am on Denise's side if this story turns out to be true.

Experts Examine Charlie Sheen's Body Language; He is Lying
Mar 3, 2011 – 4:42 PM

Charlie Sheen has it all under control. At least that is what he says.

The troubled star followed up a rant against a CBS executive and the suspension of his show, "Two and a Half Men," with a marathon media blitz to assure fans that he's leading a happy, healthy life.

"There's nothing broken here," Sheen told NBC's Jeff Rossen on the "Today" show Tuesday, in one of his many interviews this week.

But his erratic behavior -- which has included calling himself a "warlock" with "Adonis DNA" and referring to the two women he lives with as his "goddesses" -- has his family worried.

And body language experts who've watched the 45-year-old actor on camera in recent days say there's likely ample cause for concern. They say Sheen may not be entirely forthcoming about his mental or emotional state.

"When we see Charlie Sheen as a viewer from the TV screen, we get scared because he's got these micro-expressions of rage," Janine Driver, a deception and body language expert and the author of "You Say More Than You Think," told AOL News today.

Driver, a former Department of Justice investigator who trained agents on how to recognize when suspects were lying, said Sheen is trying hard to appear calm and collected but instead comes off as angry, irrational and filled with contempt.

In another NBC interview Wednesday, for example, Sheen was asked if allegations that he threatened estranged wife Brooke Mueller are true. Instead of directly responding, he nodded his head up and down and then said, "That's colorful."

Driver said Sheen could very well be telling the truth but said that his refusal to answer the question directly raises a red flag.

"He never really answered the question. It leaks contempt. It's arrogance," she said. "Truthful people convey information. Liars try to convince us of something."

In the very beginning of that interview, Sheen rubbed his neck intensely -- something body language expert Patti Wood says is a sign of stress and aggression.

"Rubbing the back of the neck indicates stress and in men is usually a precursor to him punching somebody," Wood told AOL News.

Both experts said some of Sheen's other behaviors in the on-camera interviews, such as licking his lips after speaking or pulling in his lips tightly after making certain statements -- can sometimes indicate that a person isn't being truthful.

When it came to talking about his twin sons, both Driver and Wood said Sheen was clearly genuine and very concerned. The toddlers, Bob and Max, were removed from the actor's Los Angeles home Wednesday night after a judge issued a court order at Mueller's request.

In fact, Wood said, it may have been the moment when the actor revealed that he may not have everything in his life under control in the way he thought he did.

"You can see him bounce around in his chair all of the sudden and is very uncomfortable, like it's this moment of, 'Oh my God, I'm talking about my kids and I don't know where they are,' " she said. "He also realizes that he's looking bad and not really controlling the situation."

Driver said Sheen was clearly upset.

"The way he talks about his boys, there's no evasion like he sometimes uses with other topics. There's just sadness," she said.

nope, wrong again
I just know Denise is a huge self absorbed beyotch who only cares about money. And if people even think she and Charlie have reached some settlement, it always involves more money on her part. She sold herself out. She is cracking on his 2 girls. They are not normal girls. They are so unhappy and sad. I want Charlie to take custody. Denise comes off normal but she is a total w.h.o.r.e...ask Sambora, ask Sixx, ask a ton of guys who do her cause she is IMO a one night stand. Duct tape required, however, to do her for a one night stand. Beyotch is dumb as dirt and nasty as dirt.

Basically though, her girls are not normal little girls. They are always sad and or mad. Blame Denise, not Charlie. She says they are "shy". LMFAO. Shy like her open v.a.g.i.n.a.

Of course Charlie went ballistic. In his world he does what he wants and you do what he wants. His relationship (if you want to call it that) with women is that of a controlling father/master. He has no real appreciation of women, only uses them. Such a sad thing, because usually that is due to a poor upbringing where he has seen things like that in the immediate family. Martin Sheen - take note - you cannot absolve yourself from blame.
