In August 2007, Charlie was dissatisfied with the amount of time he was allowed to spend with young daughters, Sam and Lola. So, he filed for additional custody rights. He was originally accused by his ex-wife, Denise Richards, of popping pills and having frequent mood swings, so he could only visit the kids with court supervision. However, now he wants an extra weekend with them every month, along with the freedom to choose his own nanny, and he doesn't want anyone calling the house unless there's a medical emergency. As it is, Charlie feels that his current nanny, who was chosen by Denise, is spying on him for Denise.
