Actress Denise Richards and her husband Aaron Phypers were reportedly shot at while inside their truck as they drove to a film and TV studio in Los Angeles on Monday.

Phypers was driving and looking for Popsicle Studio L.A. when the apparent road-rage incident started to take form, TMZ first reported. As Phypers was trying to find parking, a person in another vehicle drove by and opened fire.

Reps for Richards confirmed the incident and said the married couple is uninjured.

The incident was first reported by TMZ. Jill Fritzo, a representative for Richards, confirmed the account.

Richards, a former “Real Housewives” reality TV star, made headlines in the summer when she defended her 18-year-old daughter Sam “Sami” Sheen joining subscription site OnlyFans, which is known for hosting so-called sex work, namely women selling sexually explicit photos and videos.

The “Wild Things” actress argued that selling a bikini photo on OnlyFans is not really different from someone uploading it for free on other social media platforms.

“Lots of negative comments on my social this past week,” Richards posted. “I have to say, I wish I had the confidence my 18-year-old daughter has. And I also can’t be judgmental of her choices. I did ‘Wild Things’ & Playboy, quite frankly her father (actor Charlie Sheen) shouldn’t be either.”

The reality star admitted that she understands the site hosts adult content, but that did not stop her support.

“I recently learned about OnlyFans in the last few months,” the 51-year-old continued. “The judgment because women & men of the adult film industry are on there. I imagine they’re on Instagram & Twitter as well.”

“Is there really a difference posting a picture of yourself in a bikini on [Instagram]?” Richards argued. “We’ve all done it. Because you get paid on OnlyFans? I’m pretty sure [Instagram] & Twitter & Facebook do quite well off of all of us. Is it so bad to control it & monetize it, too?”

“I’m sorry, but s*** if I can get paid and at my age? To see me in a bikini?!?! God bless you,” she added. “Perhaps I should open my own account…” 

Richards later opened up her own OnlyFans account, The Daily Wire reported.

“Ready…here we go💛#onlyfans,” Richards captioned a photo of herself at the beach. “Link in bio💋.”
