Denise added that there were very different rules in Charlie's house than in her own and it is a challenge raising children in LA.

"But I think it's very difficult raising teenagers now and especially in Los Angeles when there's access to everything. We didn't grow up with Postmates and Uber where you have everything that you want," she said.

"There are certain rules and I enforce them. And [at Charlie's], there's different rules at that house and that's okay." She also revealed Sami is no longer in school.

Denise and Charlie met in 2000

As reported by Page Six, she wrote: "Now, finally moved out of the hell house, had a spiritual awakening, own 2 cats, happy single, full of self love, and dropped out of high school :)." 

At the time, Charlie spoke out via his publicist Jeff Ballard and said: "Sam is amazing. I love her and all my children unconditionally. We're having a ball. GED here we come."
