Richards, now 51, also said in an Instagram post that she would never be in a space to judge Sami either, after her career in the ’90s as a model and sex symbol.
Earlier this week, the former Two And A Half Men star told Page Six that he didn’t condone his 18-year-old daughter signing up to OnlyFans, a premium social media site where subscribers pay to receive bonus – often explicit – content.
“She is 18 years old now and living with her mother,” he said. “This did not occur under my roof.”
Meanwhile, Richards praised their daughter for having the “confidence” to “be able to ignore the negativity”, adding that she was supportive of Sami’s decision.
“I have to say, I wish I had the confidence my 18 yr old daughter has,” the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star wrote on Instagram, admitting it took her “many years” and that she “still sometimes struggle[s].”
“I’m in awe of her ability to be able to shut out the noise. Because it can destroy you.”
Richards went on to say she didn’t think her daughter would be sharing anything more explicit than what we’re already used to seeing Instagram.
“Is there really a difference posting a picture of ourself in a bikini on IG?” Richards went on. “We’ve all done it. Because you get paid on Only Fans? I’m pretty sure IG & Twitter & Facebook do quite well off of all of us. Is it so bad to control it & monetise it too?”
Richards ended by wishing she could get in on the action too: “I’m sorry, but s–t if I can get paid and at my age? to see me in a bikini?!? God bless you. Perhaps I should open my own account.”
According to the Daily Mail, Sami currently has around 2,800 followers on the adult site, and has so far uploaded just three images. She is charging subscribers $19.99 USD a month for access to her content.
Richards and Sami haven’t always been so close. In February, Richards confessed that the duo had been going through a difficult period, after Sami claimed living with her mother was “hell”.

In September 2021, Sheen posted a TikTok video where she alleged she was “trapped in an abusive household” and that she “hated [herself]” and said she was “insanely depressed.”
Sheen seemed to be living with Richards at the time, and implied she would be much happier at her father’s house. Richards was said to be “saddened” by the situation and allegations.
Richards and Sheen were married from 2002 until 2006 and share two daughters: Lola, 16, and Sami, 18.
