May 19, 2008: During an interview to promote her upcoming show, Richards tells Larry King, "I have nothing against Charlie's sperm. I have two wonderful children, but I don't want anymore of it. He said that I wanted his sperm as a donor for a third child. I can get it elsewhere."
May 21, 2008: In response to Richards' comments, Sheen releases the April 3, 2007, e-mail and the following statement: "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. She had an opportunity to tell the truth. She did not. Here is the proof."
May 23, 2008: Richards shoots back at Sheen, telling the New York Post, "I don't want Charlie's prostitute-tranny infested sperm. I have two beautiful kids. We'll leave it at that." She also claims Sheen sent her a text message the previous week saying, "I hope you and your worthless retarded father get cancer and join your stupid mom. Rot in hell you [bleeping] whore." (Richards' mom died of cancer in January.) "This is what I deal with on a weekly basis," she told the Post.
Sheen's representative would neither confirm or deny the text message, saying only, "If that text was sent by him -- who made it public? He didn't make that public. He might have said it, but he didn't make it public. And there's a huge distinction between something someone said and something someone made public."
In addition, the representative told ABCNEWS.com that he's going to get a "computer DNA expert" to prove on live television that Richards did indeed e-mail Mueller asking for Sheen's sperm.
