Charlie Sheen has a long and storied history of abusing women. To mention just a few incidents, he “accidentally” shot his then-girlfriend, Kelly Preston, in the arm in 1990. (Charlie later claimed that Kelly shot herself when she picked up his pants with the gun in them. As if it’s that easy to fire a gun.) Charlie plead guilty to misdemeanor battery in 1997 for knocking his girlfriend, Brittany Ashland, to the floor, leaving her unconscious and bloody. In a subsequent lawsuit against Charlie, Ashland stated that Charlie made her remove and dispose of her bloody clothes and that he threatened to kill her if she reported him. Charlie was arrested for domestic violence again in 2009 for choking and threatening to kill his then-wife, Brooke Mueller. In 2010, Charlie allegedly choked and threatened to kill an adult film star, Capri Anderson. Again, these are just a handful of the countless allegations against Charlie. There are more I haven’t included and there are surely more we haven’t heard about.
That’s why it’s not surprising, but still extremely sad, that photos have come out of Charlie’s ex-fiance, Scottine Rossi, with extensive bruising around her neck. Radar has the photos and they’re set to be published in The National Enquirer. Radar reports that the photos were taken in late March of last year and that Scottie “spent many late nights crying and debating if she should stay or go.” They also have a photo of a broken paned door, presumably punched out by Charlie in a rage. Charlie and Scottie officially called off their engagement in October.
Many people will question why Scottie stayed with Charlie following this incident, which is typical in abusive relationships. Abusers promise the world, swear they’ll never do it again, shower the victim with love and presents, rinse and repeat. It’s hard to escape an abusive partner, no matter your station in life. Scottie was a 20-something porn star dating a rich and powerful man. It it any wonder that Charlie dates young sex workers? Maybe he assumes no one will believe them.
