Charlie Sheen's publicist 'respectfully' resigns after latest round of actor's media outbursts

Charliesmiles Veteran Hollywood publicist Stan Rosenfield, who represented Charlie Sheen through the actor's rehab attempts and breakup with his employers on the hit sitcom "Two and a Half Men," abruptly resigned on Monday.

"I have worked with Charlie Sheen for a long time and I care about him very much," Rosenfield wrote in a brief statement. "However, at this time, I'm unable to work effectively as his publicist and have respectfully resigned." In a follow-up e-mail, Rosenfield said he had represented Sheen for at least seven years.

The move came on the same day that Sheen turned up in another round of interviews on ABC, NBC, TMZ and elsewhere, attacking everyone from CBS to his father, former "The West Wing" star Martin Sheen. Since CBS and Warner Bros. decided last week to halt production on "Two and a Half Men" after Sheen attacked his boss, Chuck Lorre, the actor has gone on a manic round of media interviews. It is unclear what role, if any, Rosenfield played in setting up those interviews.

But the public relations man was still working on the Sheen account Monday morning, when he dispelled an e-mail hoax that said Sheen had retired from acting.

Charlie Sheen questions Obama about 9/11
despite AIPAC controlled media censorship.
Mel Gibson does not play dumb about 9/11 either.

Stan Rosenfield was wise to detach from this crazy client. Charlie Sheen is sick sick sick, and unfortunately the law will not allow his father to intervene and commit him for longterm (18 mos.) treatment for his addiction and bipolar illness. He has every symptom of mania, and also sociopathy. Why anyone wants to pay him hundreds of millions of $ to play himself on the vulgar and sophomoric tv series I'll never understand. Love his dad, too bad the genes produced Charlie.

go charlie!!

Sheen doesn't need a publicist. He needs a preacher.

Charlie needs to find Jesus!

Churlish Charlie's just another enfant terrible. Can't we retire him outta of the biz once and for all! (though I'll concede he was "decent" in "Wall Street" and even "Platoon").

Sheen thinks he's David Lee Roth.

Charlie - YOU ROCK

You are my IDOL.

Charlie should come up with a religion like Scientology - I would join in a hearbeat.

LONG LIVE CHARLIE SHEEN

That dude is crazy-eyed! Looking at that pic gives me the creeps!

His rants about being "special" are just someone finally giving voice to what 99% of Hollywood thinks about themselves.

I'll bet Emilio is glad Carlos changed his name to Charlie. Charlie is obviously off the reservation.

leave the man alone. live your lives already!!

Charlie's washed up. When his publicist (basically a PR flack) can't get his arms around a guy's stunts -- and they know how to cover a lot of messy material -- then it's gone beyond what most of us can understand.

If any of us were caught with a briefcase full of cocaine we would all be in jail for a very long time. Why isn't this creep locked up??? Why isn't he under prosecution? Why is he even talking about suing????? He should be locked up and the key thrown away.

Grow UP!

LOL! He's funny.

Calling L. Ron Hubbard.

Where are the authorities? Is it me, or he threatened physical violence on people? He is clearly delusional.

It seems that this leftist forgot about civility when it comes to HIS world, and HIS "grievances". I hope CBS and the other members of the show sue HIM back for lost income (for which loss, he is clearly responsible at this point).

What a schmuck!

BTW, CBS and his father certainly deserve some of the Charlie's obuse - they created the monster, nobody else.

Charlie, Dude, you're not as big as you think you are! It takes a long time to climb down from that pedestal you have built for yourself. You need to slow down and take a breath before you continue to "blow away" all of your surroundings. Unfortunately, you may not be aware of all of the collateral damage you leave in your awesome wake!

Sheen is still stuck in his Hot Shots movies except he's the joke now.

His unemployment is the punchline.
