Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Louis C.K. and others – the heads are rolling.
The #MeToo campaign has claimed some pretty big scalps, and you can be sure that there are more bombshells to come.
In amongst the debris left behind as careers and reputations go down in flames, one man seems to be hanging on, despite a proven history of sexual assault.
Yes, we’re talking about Charlie Sheen, and apparently that’s because he’s just Charlie Sheen, ya know?
The National Enquirer recently published allegations that Sheen raped the now deceased actor Corey Haim three decades ago, when Haim was just 13, but even if you ignore those Charlie has one hell of a rap sheet.
We’ll run through some ‘highlights’ with the help of the Daily Beast:
1990: His now infamous “accidental” shooting of John Travolta’s now-wife and Sheen’s then-fiancée Kelly Preston with a .22.
1994: An unidentified UCLA student files a lawsuit alleging Sheen hit her in the head after she refused sex. (He was married at the time to his first wife, the model Donna Peele.)
1996: Sheen is arrested for brutally beating Brittany Ashland [below], slamming her head into a marble floor and threatening to kill her. Ashland received seven stitches in her lip. He pleaded “no contest” and received two years of probation. Sheen, in fact, said that Ashland tried to attack him, and he was simply “trying to contain her.”
2004: After the birth of his first child with Richards, a court document filed by Richards alleges that she was concerned that Sheen was using drugs again, so she called his sponsor. “The Respondent became paranoid. Respondent began to obsess about vaccines being poisonous, about 9/11 being a conspiracy, purchasing gas masks on the Internet, and putting guns under the coffee table so that they would be within reach if someone broke into our house,” read the filing. Afterward, Sheen is alleged to have sawed a large wedding picture of the two of them in half and then spray-painted over it, “Dumbest day of my life.”
So the wheels are coming off, Sheen ranting about vaccines, and 9/11 conspiracies. but we’re really just getting started.
Denise Richards has a lengthy list of Charlie’s misdeeds, but let’s move onto his infamous arrest in 2009:
2009: Sheen is arrested for felony second-degree assault and felony menacing against his then-wife Brooke Mueller, whose terrified voice can be heard in a 911 call fearing for her life and claiming that her husband had a knife to her throat. He pleaded guilty to third-degree domestic violence.
2010: Escort Capri Anderson alleges that Sheen put his hands on her neck and threatened to kill her on the night he was found naked and intoxicated in a New York hotel room. No arrest was made, and he entered a hospital voluntarily…
2011: Mueller [above] alleges that Sheen threatened to cut her head off and “put it in a box” and mail it to her mother and texted that he wanted to murder his Jewish manager: “I must execute mark b like the stooped jew pig that he is.” She filed a restraining order against him, which was granted, and the couples’ twins are taken from his home.
Then there are his Twitter rants from 2013, where he publicly messaged Mueller a picture of a grenade for her birthday and captioned it “why don’t ya ‘blow’ out this candle”.
No, we are not done:
2014: An L.A. dental technician sues him for assault and sexual battery, claiming that Sheen punched her during an office visit and grabbed her left breast.
2015: Sheen tweets at ex-wife Richards that she is a “heretic washed up piglet” and a “shame pile.”
We’ll wrap it up there, but don’t forget those who accuse Sheen of sleeping with them while he knew he was HIV positive.
America loves crazy (paging the White House), but perhaps now with the spotlight on sexual abuse in Hollywood Charlie will get his just rewards.
