Denise Richards has been pictured out for the first time since her 17-year-old daughter Sam ‘Sami’ Sheen made shocking claims of an alleged ‘abusive’ family life with the star.
Sami claimed that living with Denise, 50, and stepfather Aaron Phypers, 48, had been like ‘hell’ and also ‘abusive,’ causing her to not eat or sleep which led to her becoming ‘insanely depressed.’
The teen has since moved back in with her father, Denise’s ex-husband Charlie Sheen, who later said in a statement that they were ‘having a ball’ together.
The ex-RHOBH star and actress – who is said to be ‘saddened’ by the claims – was seen dressed casually with no makeup and her blonde hair disheveled as she flew back to Los Angeles from Canada on Friday.

Despite the allegations, a source told PEOPLE that Denise ‘set normal rules that any parent would be setting.’
‘She’s a mom and a parent and there are rules. [Sami] didn’t want to follow the rules,’ the source continued.
‘Charlie didn’t support implementing Denise’s rules. He has a different way of parenting and Sami decided to live with her dad.’

Sam looked upset and emotional when she appeared in the clip as she wore a black hoodie, saying: ‘1 year ago today: trapped in an abusive household, hated myself, would go days without eating or sleeping, insanely depressed, hated school, etc.’
Sam was then seen in better spirits as she said: ‘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 :).’
