Denise Richards is reportedly deeply “upset and disgusted” with Brooke Mueller.
The ex-wife of Charlie Sheen was accused by Charlie’s second ex-wife Brooke Mueller last week of abuse and neglect of her three daughters.
Police turned up at Denise’s home following the accusation and the actress is now allegedly fuming over having to chat with Child Protective Services.
“It has been alleged that Denise not only physically abused the children, but neglected them as well,” a source told Radar Online.
“This is being taken very seriously by Denise. To say she is upset and disgusted by Brooke’s actions are an understatement. But under the law, the claims must be investigated.”
Brooke told authorities that Denise, who had custody of her and Charlie’s twins Bob and Max, four, also abused the boys.
Although there is no proof of any mistreatment, the source says the accusations will be looked into.
“Social workers might want to interview Denise’s daughters and Denise will fight that. Her daughters don’t need to be dragged into this drama. They are children who are very well cared for and loved,” the source added.
Denise shares daughters Sam, nine, and Lola, eight with her former husband Charlie and she also has an adopted daughter, Eloise.
The Twisted actress recently relinquished custody of Charlie and Brooke’s twins due to their alleged violent behavior and she supposedly is happy with her choice.
“Denise now knows definitively that she made the best decision for her family by giving up being the temporary guardian for Bob and Max,” the source said.
“The chaos and never-ending drama that follows their lives — because of their mother — just made it impossible for Denise’s own family to exist like a normal one.”
