Charlie Sheen not planning to die this week, manager says
Mark Burg, who said he went to Sheen's house to check on him to make sure he wasn't nearly dead, said he found the actor eating a turkey sandwich and asking for a copy of this week's script. "He looked as normal as he's looked in a long time," Burg told TMZ.
Guess it's easier to visit Sheen in person in his gated community than to, say, reach him by phone to see how things are going? Probably, given the relative ease with which bad drivers seem to snatch up cars out of the neighborhood.
The story that Sheen was on a binge of hookers and blow and "is going to die this week" came, in the wake of his allegedly drunken meltdown at the Plaza Hotel, via RadarOnline. Burg called the account "fabricated lies," and according to Gossip Cop said that Sheen was simply watching Brett Favre and the Vikings lose.
Radar's also the source of a report that an assistant allegedly found the actor last Monday night naked in a New York restaurant bathroom with cocaine on his face after trying to have $12,000 worth of sex with a porn star -- all that alleged to have happened before the hotel brouhaha in the wee hours Tuesday. Don't get us started on the $5,900 bottle of vino and the Denise Richards drop-in.
