In legal papers filed today, Denise Richards claims Charlie Sheen threatened to kill her. It’s a pretty long read and absolutely insane, but to summarize, Charlie Sheen threatened to kill her on multiple accounts after she confronted him about his addiction to prescription drugs, his addiction to pornography , and his addiction to gambling.

“I am filing now because I can no longer accept (Sheen’s) abusive and threatening manner and must stop him from the cycle of his abuse toward me and our children and his continued threats of violence and statements that he is going to kill me,” Richards, 35, says in papers filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Among her allegations: That Sheen abused prescription drugs after the 2004 birth of their first daughter, Sam, and told Richards “I ‘better not tell anybody about his using these drugs and better keep it to myself.’ I understood by these statements that (he) would physically harm me and our baby.”

Several days later, she claims Sheen pushed her over while she was holding Lola and “said to me that he was going to have me killed.”

In his own filing, Sheen, 40, denies claims that he threatened and hit Richards on Dec. 27 and 30, saying, “I deny having engaged in any such conduct.”

In a statement issued by Richards’s rep on Friday, the actress said, “I am disappointed that the situation has deteriorated to the point that it has become necessary to seek the assistance of the court. However, my primary concern is and always has been the welfare of the children and this action today was taken to ensure their safety as well as mine.”

Sheen issued a statement of his own on Friday, calling Richards’s allegations “a most obvious immature and transparent smear campaign designed to hurt, embarrass and ultimately extort me.”

The statement continues, “I deeply regret (that) her response to my request for the court to decide what
