Washington, May 24 : The feud between Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards just got uglier with the actor sending his ex-wife a text message hoping that she gets cancer.
Richards made the revelation to the New York Post while in the Big Apple to promote her new E! reality show, reports usmagazine.com.
She also said that in the poisonous message Sheen sent to her, he wished that she and her father would get cancer and die - just like Richards' mother.
"Last week, I sent Charlie a text message asking him if he's going to Family Day [for daughter Sam's school] and letting him know Sam was sick with a cold," she told the paper.
"His response was, 'I hope you and your worthless retarded father get cancer and join your stupid mom. Rot in hell you [bleeping] whore,'" Richards claims. "My mom died of cancer. This is what I deal with on a weekly basis.
"He missed Dad's day at the school, and my father had to go in his place. And this is how he talks to me?"
This is only the latest in the war of words between the two.
Richards also claimed on the Today show that Sheen had faked e-mails from her, asking his fiancee, Brooke Mueller, for his sperm.
"I don't want Charlie's prostitute-tranny-infested sperm. I have two beautiful kids. We'll leave it at that," she said.
"I am so over him. He's the one who can't move on. He's disgusting, and he's hit an all-time low," she added.
Sheen's rep didn't take the barb lying down and fired back: "Denise seems to be denying the existence of [the] e-mail. This goes beyond a he-said-she-said. We have an offer from a [live] TV show. They will bring a computer expert to diagnose the e-mail and to verify it was sent by her e-mail address and to verify it was neither altered nor edited. Computer DNA - it is conclusive.
"The only time Charlie has spoken on TV about her, they were sound bites at red-carpet visits or during set visits. He has not gone on multiple TV shows this week," the rep said.
