Sami chat with TMZ on Thursday at the Beverly Hills restaurant Il Pastaio, where she was asked about the reception from her parents to the account.
‘I’m super grateful, I have a supportive mom on my side,’ Sami said, adding that her father ‘hasn’t’ particularly come around on the idea, ‘not too much.’
The latest: Sami Sheen, 18, the eldest daughter of Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards, told TMZ Thursday that her father does not support her having an OnlyFans account, but that her mother does
Asked about the lack of support from Charlie, 56, of having the account, Sami said, ‘I don’t really mind, it’s totally fine,’ later adding that it was a ‘personal’ issue she’d prefer not to go into detail about.
Sami said she was ‘happy for’ her mother also starting a page on the site, adding, ‘I don’t mind at all … I’m super happy, she’s doing really well.’
Sami said there is more of a ‘stigma around’ bikini pics posted to OnlyFans as opposed to on Instagram.
‘Everyone thinks it’s just for like, raunchy stuff, but you can post whatever you want on there,’ she said. ‘I’m just kind of doing my own thing, seeing if people like it or not. I just like the creative side of it and being able to make my own choices and be my own boss.
Sheen has issued mixed messages about his feelings about Sami having the page, first saying he didn’t condone it, later saying he was supportive
Richards, pictured in NYC in 2019, is ‘doing really well’ with her account after starting it, Sami said
Family: Lola Sheen, Charlie Sheen, Sami Sheen and Denise Richards were seen in a group shot last year
The Two and a Half Men alum and Richards, 51, were married from 2002 until 2006 and are also parents to daughter Lola, 17, while Richards is also mother to adopted daughter Eloise, 11.
Charlie has issued mixed messages about his feelings about Sami having the page, as he told E! News last month in a statement, ‘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.’
Sheen later clarified his remarks, telling Us Weekly in a statement that he was supportive of Sami’s efforts.
‘Denise has illuminated a variety of salient points, that in my haste, I overlooked and dismissed,’ he said. ‘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.’
Earlier this week, Richards spoke with E! News’ Daily Pop, explaining how she feels there is an unnecessary stigma applied to OnlyFans as opposed to other social media sites.
‘A lot of us have posted pictures of ourselves on Instagram in a bikini or something that might be perceived as risqué,’ Richards said. ‘And if my daughter chooses to post a picture of herself in a bathing suit on OnlyFans, why would she get backlash on that but not on Instagram?’
She said that criticism raised toward Sami was ‘very unfair,’ as she’s ‘able to do what she wants to do’ as an adult.
