"There was a request for a donation," he insists, despite Richards's denial

Amid his custody fight with Denise Richards, Charlie Sheen has made an eye-popping claim: His ex-wife wants to have another child with him.

“There was a request for a donation,” Sheen, who is now engaged to Brooke Mueller, tells TV’s Entertainment Tonight, as reported on the Web site for its sister show, The Insider.

“Without getting into it here,” the The Two and a Half Men Emmy nominee, 41, tells ET‘s Mark Steines, “there is a specific document relating to this that I am going to reserve for a court.”

Asked 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?”

Richards denied Sheen’s claim, telling The New York Post‘s Page Six column Monday: “I don’t want another child right now. I have my hands full.”

In response to Richards’s denial Sheen replied, “She can make every claim in the world. But what she stated in something she wrote would completely and totally defy that.”

Richards, 36, filed for divorce from Sheen in March 2005, when she was six months pregnant with their second child. In November of last year, a court legally ended their status as a married couple. However, their divorce is not yet complete.

Still at issue is the final division of assets and custody arrangements over their daughters Sam, 3, and Lola, 2. Sheen is requesting looser visitation rights – that won’t require him to be supervised – with the girls, according to legal documents filed in a Los Angeles family court Friday.

In speaking to ET, Sheen also apparently comments on the story that Richards sent flowers to congratulate him and Mueller on their engagement last month.

“What I find curious and somewhat amusing is that the press knew she sent flowers before they arrived,” says Sheen.
