Denise Richards is cutting the final ties to her ex hubby, Charlie Sheen.

On Friday, Richards filed papers in an L.A. court requesting that her legal name be changed from Sheen back to Richards. The actress took her married name when she wed Sheen in 2002.

In 2005, Denise filed for divorce but the two later reconciled. They finally parted ways a year later only to then engage in a bitter and often public custody battle over their two daughters, Sam, 4, and Lola, 2 1/2.

The fighting continued this year when Denise announced plans to include their children in a reality TV show featuring her life as a single mom. The one time Bond girl won her court case against Sheen, who filed a claim to keep the girls off of the show.
