Charlie Sheen did handfuls of Vicodin, burned clothes, punched walls in Mexico

Semi-Exclusive... Charlie Sheen Locking Lips With His New Lady Brett Rossi
I saw Wolf of Wall Street last week. I have to say the movie was a lot of fun. Some critics have complained that it’s disgusting, that it uses sex and drugs for shock value and that it glorifies excess. Maybe it does, but it was highly entertaining from start to finish. I would watch it again, and I want to read the book. In WOWS the lead characters pop quaaludes like candy, and there’s a memorable scene where DiCaprio’s character tries to function after taking handfuls of the stuff.

That’s what came to mind when I read this story about Charlie Sheen. It’s like he’s trying to live his life as a character on screen, one who lacks even a tenuous grasp on reality. Sheen was in Mexico over the holidays with his then-new girlfriend, 24 year-old adult film star, Brett Rossi. (He proposed to Rossi on another trip over Valentine’s day.) While on vacation Charlie ordered a tattoo artist to come to his hotel suite. A friend of the tattooist witnessed Charlie downing a ton of valium, drinking vodka, punching a wall, and burning his shorts. Charlie also offered the men there $10,000 to kiss him. Just because he could. The source sold the story and some photos to Radar:

Shortly after his arrival in town, Sheen’s camp summoned a local tattoo artist and his friends to his suite at the five-star Hotel El Ganzo — and what they found there stunned them.

“As soon as we get to the place, his bodyguard opens the door and invites us in,” one of Sheen’s guests tells Radar.

“Charlie is seen standing at the table… on the table are bottles of vodka, cigarettes strewn everywhere, a handful of Vicodins… He takes a few and chases it with vodka.”

“What’s up f**gots?’ he says as he notices us enter the room,” the source dished. “We all meet Charlie and after he tells us about the tattoo he wants. We sit down to get started.”

According to the source, Sheen opted to have a New York Yankees symbol on his right arm covered up by “the theme from the movie Jaws.”

“Halfway through this tattoo, he takes some more Vicodin,” the source claimed. “[Then] without warning, Charlie punches a hole in the wall in front of him. He would later sign his name above the hole.”

Before long, the source said, it became clear that Sheen, 48, was “really f*cked up. He strips down to his boxers and proceeds to set his shorts on fire!”

“His bodyguard warns against this,” the source said, “but Sheen moves on to his next target.”

Despite the fact that Sheen’s then-girlfriend Rossi had tagged along on the trip, the source said he was still looking for some loving from the MEN present, “asking one of us to kiss him!”

When the male refused, “Charlie said, ‘I’ll give you one thousand dollars,’” the source claimed. “Friend says, ‘Hell no.’ Charlie says, ‘I’ll give you ten thousand dollars.’”

“Though possibly the dumbest move of his life,” the source joked, “my friend says hell no once again!”

Then Charlie begged the tattoo guy and his crew to stay and tattoo his wrist with a copy of a loom bracelet his daughters had given him. He even wanted a second bracelet tattoo on the other wrist, but the bodyguard talked him out of it. (That was a dumb move. Those loom bracelets are just about out of fashion.)

None of this is particularly shocking considering who we’re talking about. Do you think Charlie is going to get his life made into a movie at some point? I do. I’m 50/50 on whether he’ll be around to see it.

    CS is a grown man, but i have to wonder where his family is.
    his continued downward spiral has to be heartbreaking for his parents and siblings.

    • LAK says:

      CS has been a mess publicly and privately since the 80s. Frankly it’s a surprise he is still here. His family is very, very aware of his antics, issues, substance abuse etc. They’ve been dealing with it for more than 20yrs.

      At least this time he isn’t ‘accidentally’ shooting people.

      He’ll outlive us all. Ditto Lilo, Courtney Love, Keith Richards and Steve Tyler.

      • Christin says:

        My thoughts exactly. He’s made it this long and will probably be one of the last ones standing.

        If his family has quietly given up, I certainly cannot blame them. He is a middle aged adult who has had many opportunities to change his behavior.

  2. paola says:

    I have a feeling that this guy will end up in the Amy Winehouse group very soon.

    • Jenna says:

      Honestly? At this point, I think that will happen only when he really goes the Amy Winehouse route – ie, go sober hard and fast, just as hard and fast as he rampages on the stuff and then try to have just ‘a bit’ and his body finally crack under the massive yo-yoing strain.

      Because right now, as it stands, I can’t help but think the man might possibly be capable of being hit by a train and still manage to stagger off to a bar – he’s run by so many pharmaceuticals that he is practically a living embalmed corpse already. Ugh. It will happen eventually, but the only ones I feel for anymore are his poor kids. And even for them – as someone who has had to deal with this kind of toxic crap? It might be easier on his poor girls if their dad checks out. That kinda grief is something that can be gotten through. Right now they are living in a warzone with no end in clear sight. Far more traumatic and scarring.

      • Esmom says:

        Very well put. I figured if he survived that extended “tiger blood/winning” episode, he will probably survive anything. “Living embalmed corpse” is exactly how I see him, too. So sad for his kids. Agreed that as long as he’s around their chances of a normal existence are pretty slim.

    • ViktoryGin says:

      Incidentally, both are virgos with moons in sagittarius. Often imparts a love of excess.

    • lunchcoma says:

      I don’t. Sheen seems to hurt others rather than himself.

    • K says:

      I don’t wish harm on anyone. But I don’t get how Winehouse, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Cory Monteith – all of whom were agreed to have many lovely traits, contributed positively to the world, and who genuinely tried hard to beat their addictions – have died of them, while the likes of Sheen and Lohan roll merrily on, trashing all in their path. Just seems so desperately unfair.

      • MyCatLoves TV says:

        Don’t feel bad. I understand what you mean. It really doesn’t seem fair. At all.

      • Bread and Circuses says:

        To be fair, Charlie writes big checks to people in need surprisingly often and without any fanfare.

        Of course, he also writes big checks to porn stars and drug dealers just because they schmoozed him into it. He’s basically inclined to piss away money however he likes.

        I do agree with you regarding Lilo the crackroach, however. Why are the gentle and talented ones gone?

  3. mom2two says:

    In other words, it’s a day that ends in “y” for Charlie.
    I do remember Martin Sheen, years ago, begging the court to put Charlie in jail to save his life. I have to wonder, since Martin has largely been very silent about Charlie antics over the past couple of years, if the family has given up. It’s very sad what he’s doing to himself and by extension, those around him. Imagine how his children must feel, including his oldest daughter who I believe is married and has a child.

  4. Size Does Matter says:

    I just noticed how banged up and gross his legs look in the blue jumpsuit photo – and he’s doing the Lollipop Guild dance! Ah, crazy Charlie. Nothing you do surprises me any more.

  5. Arock says:

    Yikes. His legs look gross. He should be studied.

  6. Jen says:

    “I want to read the book”

    Please do not read the book. Jordan Belfort is making tons of money off of it, and that scums STILL owes restitution to his victims.

  7. break says:

    Does he have unsupervised visitation with his children? Does he have them overnight? Do they bounce back and forth between the crazy, addict mother and this guy? When those kids grow up, they’ll probably sue the state of California for negligence.

  8. dorothy says:

    Hard to watch a talented man spiral so out of control. I wouldn’t be surprised to wake up and find out this man has OD’d or killed himself. Very sad. Such an angry, troubled person.

  9. LAK says:

    I pity his handlers.

    No amount of money can compensate for taking care of someone like this.

  10. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    This is a minor point, but I think it’s sort of unethical to give someone a tattoo when they’re so obviously drunk and on drugs. Not that I care what happens to this dirt ball but, still. Isn’t there a tattoo artist’s code of ethics or something? Or do they just assume most people are drunk when they make that decision?

    • Ag says:

      I have several tattoos, and none of the places I went to would touch anyone who’s consumed any alcohol. Not only does it lead to highly questionable decisions, but also apparently thins your blood and makes you bleed more. I thought that was the “industry standard.” Maybe not in Mexico?

  11. BreeinSEA says:

    Its amazing…. even with handfuls of Vicodin, he is still a rage monster.

  12. FingerBinger says:

    Charlie Sheen is a mess. Nothing new there. In other news, the sky is blue and water is wet.

  13. ViktoryGin says:

    Haha. Dlisted had a sketchy looking photo of the tattoo artist wearing a surgical mask while tattooing him. I don’t know if this is standard for Mexican tattooists, but I wouldn’t go near this human cesspool without a hazmat suit for fear of catching some airborne hooker virus. Disgusting, this one is.

  14. J9 says:

    Maybe the tattoo hurt, to wit, the vicodin and wall punching. LoL

  15. Christin says:

    And he’s only 48, folks.

  16. Jaderu says:

    Water cooler chat the morning after with “Such a waste of talent”
    in 3…2…

  17. Mia4S says:

    Just a textbook definition of ” a waste of space”. Remember Platoon? Wall Street? Eight Men Out? Oh hell…Hot Shots? Once upon a time and then addiction (and narcissm) took hold. A hopeless, useless waste of space.

    To echo the above, do not pay money to read Wolf of Wall Street. I’ve heard that piece of trash it’s about is under investigation for hiding assists that should be going to victims. I know they say he won’t make money from the movie (sold the rights) but I’m not taking chances.

    • Skyblue says:

      The narcissism and addiction has been there forever. I remember reading a Charlie Sheen interview years ago (pre-social media) and he publicly declared he beat to death his neighbors peacocks. Couldn’t stomach his popularity on 3 1/2 men.

  18. dizzylucy says:

    I honestly don’t know how he’s still alive.

  19. Dawn says:

    So much talent and so screwed up. Gosh I feel bad for his children. But Charlie is a grown man and he knows the risks. One of these days his heart will just give out from all the booze and pills. What a waste of talent.

  20. yennefer says:

    The day after PSH death I came across the news headline saying ” Breaking: Charlie Sheen Found Alive In His New York Apartment, Aged 48″.

    And there’s this:

    This man should donate his body for medical research after his death, as Keith Richards did.

  21. Christina says:

    Ah, good times! Vicodin, vodka, burning shorts and punching walls – that’s what I call a good weekend. That lifestyle would kill me in a month, so yeah, he’s pretty much going to outlive us all!

  22. Maritza says:

    He seems to have gained some weight, his face looks fuller and better. I fear his drug addiction might him to an early death. I feel sorry for his parents and his kids. This new girlfriend of his is probably working on trying to get pregnant to secure her monthly paycheck.

  23. gg says:

    He has turned into Rasputin. The movie about his life will be called Fear and Loathing in Los Angeles.

  24. decorative item says:

    I would NEVER stand on a balcony with Charlie.
