Denise's photo of Sami caused a stir among her fans

Sami and Denise have had a "strained" relationship in recent years, with the OnlyFans star deciding to move out of her mom's home to live with her dad, Charlie Sheen, after claiming she felt "trapped" living with Denise.

Speaking of their fallout in February 2022, Denise said on Sirius XM's Jeff Lewis Live: "It's very difficult. I know we'll get back to where we were eventually, but right now, it is strained."

The 52-year-old added: "She lived with me all these years. There are certain rules and I enforce them. And [at Charlie's], there's different rules at that house and that's OK."

Denise and Sami are living together again

However, in June 2022, Charlie revealed to the New York Post that Sami was back living with her mother.

Sami is one of two daughters Denise shares with her former husband Charlie. The couple's younger daughter Lola, 17, was recently in the news after she was involved in a frightening night-time car accident.

Denise and Charlie got divorced in 2006, just over a year after Lola's birth. The Drop Dead Gorgeous actress also has an 11-year-old daughter named Eloise, who she adopted in 2011.
