Actress Denise Richards’ car was shot, but she was not physically injured after a road rage shooting on her way to Los Angeles set with her husband.
The ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ actress and her husband, Aaron Phypers, were on their way to Popsicle Studio in LA. According to the reports, her husband, who was driving the car then, was having difficulty looking for a parking space. Phypers was moving slowly, so the driver of the grey Shelby truck behind them was irritated and started shouting while overtaking them. Phypers let the driver pass them, but surprisingly the man tried to squeeze his car in front of them and shot their pickup truck. Luckily, the two were not injured.
The actress still managed to arrive at the film and photograph museum studio but was rattled and sobbing. The couple did not realize at first that the car had been shot; they found out when the guy had taken off by then, and they freaked out. When she reached set, the production team called 911 to check the damaged truck, and there was a bullet hole in the car’s tail light. Though the actress was terrified by the incident, she still pursued filming her parts the whole day. Phypers accompanied Richards in the set. After working for 12 hours, the pair was assisted by an off-duty police officer back to the parking. It happened near the intersection of Slauson and Western Avenues.
Many news outlets coordinated with the California Highway Patrol, Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department, and Los Angeles Police Department, which have jurisdiction where the shooting happened, to get information on the incident. The Los Angeles Police Department said there is no ongoing investigation into the incident.
Before Denise Richards met Aaron Phypers, she was married to Charlie Sheen for six years. They have two daughters, namely, Sam and Lola. After ten years of divorce, she met Phypers at Quantum 360, his wellness clinic. They slept one night in his room, and then they were inseparable. However, Phypers was still married to Nicollette Sheridan, but they no longer lived under the same roof. After his divorce was finalized in 2018, the two tied the knot. Aaron called Charlie before they married out of respect, and he will be a stepdad to his daughters. Sheen approved the union. Phypers did not fail to be a stepdad to her children, as he had a great bond with them.
