Denise Richards has addressed her 18-year-old daughter’s choice to do OnlyFans after Charlie Sheen voiced his disapproval.
Sami Sheen, 18, who is the couple’s daughter, had announced she was joining the platform last week, sharing a photo of herself in a black bikini as she directed fans to sign up to the subscription platform to ‘see more’.
Following the backlash from some fans – and comments from her own father – Denise, 51, took to Instagram to voice her support for her daughter making her own choices.
She told her followers: ‘Lots of negative comments on my social this past week. I have to say, I wish I had the confidence my 18 yr old daughter has. And I also can’t be judgmental of her choices. I did Wild Things & Playboy, quite frankly her father shouldn’t be either.
‘And to be able to ignore the negativity at her age? It took me many years & I still sometimes struggle. I’m in awe of her ability to be able to shut out the noise. Because it can destroy you.’
Denise also argued in favour of OnlyFans, pointing out that adult entertainers also have accounts on Instagram and Twitter and are not judged for being on the non-monetised platforms.

She added: ‘Is it so bad to control it & monetise it too? I’m sorry, but s**t, if I can get paid and at my age? To see me in a bikini?!? God bless you. Perhaps I should open my own account..’
Denise then joked: ‘Oh & those of you that are so judgmental… sounds like you might already subscribe to an @onlyfans account. Have a great weekend.’

Her statement comes after Charlie, 56, voiced his disapproval about his daughter’s career choice, telling US Weekly: ‘This did not occur under my roof.’
He added: ‘She is 18 years old now and living with her mother. I do not condone this but since I’m unable to prevent it, I urged her to keep it classy, creative and not sacrifice her integrity.’

Denise had also hit back in a separate statement, telling PageSix: ‘Sami is 18, and this decision wasn’t based on whose house she lives in.
‘All I can do as a parent is guide her and trust her judgment, but she makes her own choices.’
