NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Denise Richards & Charlie Sheen’s marriage may have ended in 2006, but the animosity continues to rage on.
During an appearance on NBC’s “Today” show on Tuesday, Denise lashed out at her ex-husband over an e-mail that Charlie claims Denise sent then-girlfriend and now-fiancee Brooke Mueller alleging she asked him for a sperm donation after their split.
“That e-mail is not legitimate,” Denise told Matt Lauer. “It’s a doctored e-mail. I would never send an e-mail to his … girlfriend, and, at the time of that e-mail, I was with Richie [Sambora]. If I wanted anybody’s sperm, I’d have asked for Richie’s.”
Denise goes to say that at the time of the purported e-mail, she was coping with her ailing mother, and a pregnancy was not something she was considering “especially with my ex-husband,” Denise said.
Charlie lashed back, releasing a statement to the '‘Today” show calling Denise’s claim’s “absurd.”
“The mere fact the she continues to publicly discuss and harass both Brooke and me three years after our separation which, for the record is longer than the actual length of the marriage, is beyond desperate and speaks volumes,” Charlie said in the statement.
Not stopping with just harsh words, Charlie challenged Denise to take the issue to court.
“I will no longer sit back and be egregiously painted as a liar. If any proof can be established that these are not in fact her words and statements verbatim, I openly invite her and would even encourage Ms. Richards to sue me in a court of law,” he added.
