Charlie Sheen is a multifaceted whirlwind of destruction. His life has never been a traditional one – from blockbuster films in the 80’s and 90’s to hit television shows in the 2000’s, the Charlie Sheen news regarding his work is always positive. The flipside to this shining coin is Charlie Sheen’s social life, or rather the recurring string of disasters that trails behind him. Charlie Sheen has been arrested for abuse, for traffic violations, for drug abuse and for solicitation. The insane Charlie Sheen news shows no signs of slowing down and history shows that he is still to learn from his mistakes.
- The 90’s
Kelly Preston (first wife) was accidently shot in the arm by Charlie Sheen. The marriage quickly ended, and Sheen moved on to Donna Peele. A brand new wife was not enough for Charlie Sheen and in a heavily publicized court case, Sheen was found to be frequenting the brothers of Heidi Fleiss – romantic involvements with porno stars further tarnished his star. Charlie Sheen’s final middle finger to the 90’s came in the form of a cocaine overdose, plus a heavy stint in celebrity rehab.
- The 2000’s
Two marriages polarized Charlie Sheen’s life in the early 2000’s; first to Denise Richards (2002) and then Brooke Mueller (2008). Domestic violence charges soon followed after his marriage to Denise – the couple was torn apart by arrests, abuse and drug use. A heavy battle ensued for the custody of their two children, with the war only ending last year with a sort of uneasy peace between the divorced couple – Charlie Sheen stated that, “we had to do what’s best for the girls.” Charlie Sheen’s marriage to Brooke Mueller, an estate agent, endured similar circumstances with charges of stalking, menacing and domestic violence. Roll on 2010.
Rehab was a revolving door for Charlie Sheen at this point. He had taken a voluntary break from his hit TV show, ‘Two and a Half Men’ to enter rehab. Charlie Sheen’s rehab stint was considered a pre-emptive strike against any further mishaps. This did not stop Charlie Sheen from losing his mind in the twilight hours of October the 26th. Inside the Plaza Hotel, Charlie Sheen smashed up his luxury room, divulged in unknown quantities of cocaine and locked a former porno model inside the bathroom (for reasons unknown). A week later, Charlie Sheen’s third wife filed for divorce.
Madman, talented comedian or bitter actor past his prime – Charlie Sheen is all of these, living life to the fullest and enjoying every brutal moment of it.
