Aug. 7, 2007: Sheen tells "Entertainment Tonight" that Richards wants his sperm. He alleges she sent the following e-mail to his fiance April 3, 2007, provided to ABCNEWS.com by Sheen's representative:
Dear Brooke, I don't want to have a baby with Charlie. I am having a baby in the next year. By myself ... my girlfriend suggested Charlie be the donor. So, I did bring this up to him. There are so many couples having unhealthy children. Charlie and I have very beautiful healthy children together. I was strictly looking for a sperm donor if it's any of your business. If it were him, I said we would sign a document that he couldn't come after me and I couldn't come after him. ... This wasn't to have sex with him, it was him donating. ... That's it. I didn't want him to tell you at this time because it was something very personal that I'm doing myself.
Asked on "Entertainment Tonight" if he would take this alleged offer from Richards seriously, Sheen replies, "I would sooner, in exactly what I'm wearing, walk on the surface of the moon. Does that answer it?"

Mueller tells People magazine that Richards "begged [she and Sheen] on a few different occasions not to tell the girls we were engaged." Mueller also says Richards edited her e-mails in court filings. "It's a shame that Denise conveniently edited my e-mail correspondence to serve her own interests," Mueller tells People. "She would be both mortified and embarrassed if I released any one of her 40 e-mails to me. But she knows my character and humanity and knows that I would never do such a thing." She goes on to say that Richards' accusations of Sheen's inappropriate conduct and attraction to underage women are "laughable at best."
