Sheen and Richards settle "outstanding issues" in their divorce, their lawyers say
The acrimonious divorce battle between Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards is over – for now, according to a joint statement by their lawyers.
“Both parties have amicably resolved any outstanding issues on an interim basis,” Sheen’s attorney, Lance Spiegel, said Monday outside a Los Angeles courthouse with Richards’s lawyer, Neal Hersh, by his side.
However, the divorce has not been finalized.
Sheen, 40, and Richards, 35, were not present at the brief hearing, which took place in judge’s quarters. Their attorneys declined to comment on custody arrangements for the couple’s daughters Sam, 2, and Lola, 1.
Legal papers show that there are no further court dates scheduled and a temporary restraining order against Sheen has not been renewed.
In an order of protection that expired Monday, Sheen had been required to stay at least 300 yards from Richards and their daughters, except for supervised visits with the children.
Sheen and Richards wed in June 2002; Richards filed for divorce in March 2005 while pregnant with Lola.
