The tour itself was not easy, “It was brutal. I was not ‘winning’ at all. I think what a lot of people don’t realize is that I was completely broke, because, you know, when they kept my back-end and fired me and all that, I didn’t have any money left. So, I was using the tour to actually pay child support and mortgages and stuff like that. You know? So I’m grateful for that,” Sheen admitted.

Aside from Two and a Half Men, Charlie Sheen’s television credits include Spin City, Anger Management , #Cybriety, and The Goldbergs.

Sheen was the highest paid actor on television, earning $1.25 million per episode of Two and a Half Men. That amount grows to $2 million include back end syndication points. A season is usually 24 episodes, so Sheen’s salary was calculated at $48 million per year just from one show!

In 2002, he won Best Actor for the series Spin City. He has also won two awards for Two and a Half Men. In 2012, Sheen was awarded WWE Slammy Award Top Social Media Ambassador.

Drug Scandal

Sheen’s personal life has equally made headlines, comprising of reports about alcohol and drug abuse and marital problems as well as allegations of domestic violence. 

During 1998, he suffered a stroke after overdosing while using cocaine and was hospitalized. Charlie was found in his seaside home by a friend, then paramedics had to give emergency life-saving treatment and rushed him to Las Robles hospital. Not only did he almost DIE, he was described as being in a “serious condition” after his stomach was pumped. Sheen then checked into a rehab clinic days later but confessed to the doctors within hours that he did not intend to stay. Sheriffs later forced Sheen back into the clinic after he fled only hours after arriving. This was in May. 

Later in August of the same year when Sheen, already on probation in California for a previous drug offense, had his probation extended for an extra year and entered a rehab clinic. Fast forward to 2004, Sheen admitted in an interview that the overdose was caused by his injecting of cocaine.

As the 2000s began more drug admissions, it was not a shock when in 2009, Sheen was arrested for assaulting his wife at the time, Brooke Mueller, in Aspen, Colorado. He was released the same day from jail after posting an $8,500 bond. He was charged with felony menacing, as well as third-degree assault and criminal mischief.

On August 2, 2010, Sheen, represented by Yale Galanter, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault as part of a plea bargain that included dismissal of the other charges against him. Charle received a 30 day sentencing in a drug rehab center, 30 days of probation, and 36 hours of anger management.

Also during the same year, the cops removed Sheen from his suite at the Plaza Hotel after he reportedly caused $7,000 in damage. According to the NYPD, he confessed to drinking and using drugs like cocaine the night of the incident.  Sheen was then released after entering a hospital on the grounds of observation. 

HIV Diagnoses

When it came to HIV, no one made it more infamous because in 2015, Sheen publicly revealed that he was HIV positive, having been diagnosed roughly four years earlier.  In an interview, he referred to the phrase HIV as “three hard letters to absorb”. He manages his condition with a triple cocktail of antiretroviral drugs, and said that it was impossible that he could have infected any of his partners on account of wearing protection, we hope. Charlie also noted that since 2011, he had paid extortionists approximately $10 million to keep his HIV status secret. A source indicates that Sheen had over 200 sexual partners after he learned he had HIV. Sheen stated that he was upfront about his HIV diagnoses with all of his past relationships.

During an episode of The Dr. Oz Show taped in late 2015 and aired January 12, 2016, Sheen stated “I’m [sic] been off my meds for about a week now,” and got alternative treatment in Mexico from Sam Chachoua, who claims to have an effective vaccine for HIV. Knowing Charlie, this episode was aired later so it was suspicious to think that he would stick to his words. This was confirmed by his manager after the episode was taped he resumed taking his medications. 

In April 2016, Sheen had his monthly child support payments to his two ex-wives, Brooke and Denise, reduced from $55,000 to $10,000. In the same month, Sheen was under investigation by the LAPD stalking unit. The disgraced actor was in for threatening to kill his former fiancée Scottine Ross.

So we all know that Charlie Sheen’s best “role” is that of a millionaire playboy who got a little bit too invested in the wealth of the film industry. Let’s just say that excessive anything needs to be taken with a pinch of “Sheen”.
