Denise Richards joins OnlyFans days after her 18-year-old daughter Sami signed up

Denise Richards has followed in her 18-year-old daughter’s provocative footsteps by launching her own OnlyFans account – just days after her ex-husband Charlie Sheen publicly blasted her for allowing their child to sign up to the X-rated site. 

The 51-year-old actress-turned-reality star took to Instagram on Thursday to announce that she has joined the raunchy subscriber-only website, sharing a video of herself paddling in the ocean, while urging her followers to click through to her OnlyFans page. 

‘Ready… here we go,’ she wrote, before adding the hashtag #OnlyFans and writing: ‘Link in bio.’ 

That link leads social media users directly through to Richards’ newly-launched OnlyFans account, where she currently has just one post – and where subscribers are required to pay $25 a month in order to gain access to her content.

That price is more than $5 higher than the fee being charged by her teenage daughter Sami, who sparked furious controversy earlier this month when she launched her own OnlyFans account – prompting her father to publicly bash the decision, while heaping criticism on his ex-wife Richards. 

‘This did not occur under my roof,’ stressed the 56-year-old Wall Street star in a statement given to UsWeekly.

‘She is 18 years old now and living with her mother,’ he added, seemingly trying to shift any blame to his ex-wife, whom he was divorced from in 2006.

‘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.’ 

Richards was quick to voice public support for her daughter, commenting on the teenager’s Instagram post announcing her OnlyFans page: ‘Sami I will always support you and always have your back. I love you.’

She also took aim at her ex-husband – whom she divorced in 2006 – in a statement made to Page Six, in which she insisted that Sami should be allowed to make her ‘own choices’ now that she is a legal adult. 

Thus far the actress has shared just one post on the website - where she is also offering her subscribers a three-month discount

Richards’ daughter Sami announced earlier this month that she had joined OnlyFans – prompting fury from her father, who has since backtracked and offered his support to her 

‘Sami is 18, and this decision wasn’t based on whose house she lives in,’ Richards said. ‘All I can do as a parent is guide her and trust her judgment, but she makes her own choices.’

She also posted a lengthy statement on her Instagram account throwing her weight behind her daughter’s decision to monetize risque images of herself – while teasing at the time that she would be tempted to launch her own page on the site.  

‘Lots of negative comments on my social this past week,’ the Wild Things star wrote. ‘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.’

She continued: ‘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. I recently learned about @onlyfans in the last few months.

‘The judgement because of women & men of the adult film industry are on there. I imagine they’re on Instagram & Twitter as well. If there really a difference posting a picture of ourself [sic] in a bikini on Only Fans? I’m pretty sure IG & Twitter & Facebook do quite well off of all of us. Is it so bad to control it & monetize it too?’

She concluded her post: ‘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. Oh & those of you that are so judgmental… sounds like you might already subscribe to an @onlyfans account. Have a great weekend.’

Sheen ultimately backtracked on his criticism of daughter Sami’s account, telling UsWeekly that his ex-wife had convinced him that their child’s new venture might not be as risky or X-rated as he initially thought. 

‘Denise has illuminated a variety of salient points, that in my haste, I overlooked and dismissed,’ the Two and a Half Men alum said.

‘Now more than ever, it’s essential that Sami have a united parental front to rely upon, as she embarks on this new adventure. From this moment forward, she’ll have it abundantly,’ he stated.

It is not known whether Sheen offered his support to his former spouse ahead of her own OnlyFans launch – however it is unlikely that any disapproval from the actor would have dissuaded her from joining. 

Indeed, their daughter Sami persisted in posting to her account even after her dad voiced his displeasure over her joining the site – and has shared five images on her page since announcing her OnlyFans ten days ago, including a nearly-nude image of herself lying on a bed, and a provocative picture that shows her sucking on a red lollipop. 

Despite its risque reputation, OnlyFans has actually played host to several celebrity users – including Cardi B and Bella Thorne – who often focus on posting softer, more safe-for-work content than many of the other creators on the site.
