The 51-year-old actress, model and reality TV star seemingly did so in support of her daughter.
The news came after a small feud with ex-husband Charlie Sheen over their daughter Sami Sheen’s OnlyFans account.
The saga started when Sami Sheen, the 18-year-old daughter of the famous actors announced her newly created OnlyFans account in mid-June.
OnlyFans is a webservice where users can charge others to see their posts, whether that be text, photos, audio, or videos. It quickly gained a reputation for “adult” content and people often use it for such purposes.
Soon after Sami’s account went public, Richards posted her own comment in support of her daughter.
“Sami I will always support you & always have your back. I love you”
By contrast, Sami’s father, Charlie Sheen was against the idea. He seemed to blame Richards in his statement to the press.
In a statement to E! News, the notorious Hollywood bad boy said:
“I do not condone this."
"But since I'm unable to prevent it, I urged her to keep it classy, creative and not sacrifice her integrity.”
"She is 18 years old now and living with her mother."
"This did not occur under my roof."
Which makes Richards' own OnlyFans account all the more of a shot at her ex-husband’s disapproval.
Richards continued her support of Sami after Sheen’s negative comments.
She wrote an Instagram post where she shot down the criticism of her daughter starting a sex positive career.
As she wrote in the post:
“And I can’t be judgemental of her choices. I did Wild Things & Playboy, quite frankly her father shouldn’t be either.”
Additionally, Richards is amazed Sami has handled the negativity so well.
“I’m in awe of her ability to be able to shut out the noise. Because it can destroy you.”
“I’m but sh** if I can get paid and at my age? To see me in a bikini?!? God bless you.”
She ends with a familiar idea.
“Perhaps I should open my own account..”
It didn’t take long, as only a few days later, she shared her new OnlyFans link. The pricing starts at $25 per month, with an option for $67.50 for three months.
While it seems like she’s stated this is to support her daughter, some are asking if this was really for her.
Richards’ defense of Sami may have had the intended effect, as Sheen is now much more supportive. In a follow up statement, he commented on the “salient points” Richards brought up in the discussion.
“Now more than ever, it's essential that Sami have a united parental front to rely upon, as she embarks on this new adventure. From this moment forward, she'll have it abundantly.”
Maybe Charlie Sheen will be the next OnlyFans star.
