Denise Richards Net Worth
According To Uswhispers Denise Richards is an American actress, model, and reality television personality with a $12 million net worth. Denise began her career as a model in the fashion industry. In the 1990s, she started making frequent appearances in movies and on television. Her acting resume includes parts in films like "Wild Things," "The World Is Not Enough," and "Starship Troopers," to mention a few. Richards was listed as the ninth sexiest woman in the world by Maxim magazine.
Joni and Irv Richards welcomed Denise Richards into the world on February 17, 1971 in Downers Grove, Illinois. She attended El Camino High School after the family relocated to Oceanside, California, when she was 15 years old. She started modelling soon after graduating, visiting locations including New York, Paris, London, and Tokyo for photo shoots and commercials.
Early career and groundbreaking
Richards made numerous film and television appearances in the 1990s, including "Loaded Weapon" in 1993 and guest spots on "Saved by the Bell," "Married with Children," and "Doogie Howser." She also guest-starred in other popular TV shows including "Beverly Hills, 90210" and "Seinfeld."
In June 2002, Richards married Charlie Sheen. Together, they have two daughters. In March 2005, Richards filed for divorce from Sheen, who was pregnant with their second daughter. She also sought a restraining order, claiming Sheen had threatened her with death. In November2006, their divorce was legally formalised. Sheen gave Richards joint legal custody of their daughters in May 2010. Richards had always petitioned for sole custody, citing Sheen's substance abuse problems and the turbulence of their previous marriage. Richards was awarded interim custody of the twin sons delivered to Sheen and his new wife Brooke Mueller in 2009 in May 2013, after child protective authorities withdrew the children from their house due to drug use issues. Following a two-year adoption process, Richards adopted a third daughter as a single parent in June 2011.
Richards and Aaron Phypers began dating in December 2017. They tied the knot in September 2018. Previously, Andrew was married to the actress Nicollette Sheridan.
In 2007, following her divorce from Charlie Sheen, Denise purchased a big home in the Los Angeles enclave of Hidden Hills for $4.4 million. She then spent at least $1 million on home improvements. In 2015, she offered this home for $7.75 million. Unfortunately, she was unable to find a buyer, and in 2018 she settled for $4.6 million, which was likely a significant loss when renovation costs are factored in.
Denise invests a significant portion of her time outside of her acting career to charitable causes. She is an advocate for animal welfare who has worked with Best Friends Animal Society and Much Love Animal Rescue since 2009. She supports, among other organisations, the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, Feeding America, and Children's Hospital Los Angeles. She participated in the NOH8 Campaign and has defended homosexual marriage and LGBTQ rights. Richards has participated in various charity fashion shows throughout the years, including Susan G. Komen's Fashion for the Cure. After losing her mother to kidney cancer, Denise also devotes time to raising awareness for the Kidney Cancer Association.
