Charlie Sheen has been experiencing so much drama in his real life that he’s decided to pen a memoir. Involving suspense far beyond what the writers of his cancelled show, Two And A Half Men ever concocted, it all revolves around the recent announcement by Charlie that he is HIV positive; for which he got reactions ranging from encouragement from family and friends to anger from former lovers. Now Sheen is seeking $10 million for a memoir while he’s being sued by an ex.
But the asking price for that memoir by Charlie is too much, publishing executives told Page Six.
“When Charlie starred in ‘Two and a Half Men,’ it was a funny comedy, but the idea of $10 million is even funnier,” said one publishing house employee to Page Six. “So much of his life has played out in public, and so much is sordid — in this case there may be too much information. What’s left to find out?”
Adding to the challenge of getting the money he wants for his memoir, Charlie’s life has been covered in Jon Cryer’s tell-all, So That Happened.
“I would like to publish his autobiography as an epic poem,” proposed Judith Regan, a noted publisher.
However, Charlie has company in contemplating his tell-all. In addition to Sheen, memoirs have been proposed by ex-girlfriends, adult film stars, and even bodyguards.
“I’ve got magic. I’ve got poetry in my fingertips. Most of the time — and this includes naps — I’m an F-18, bro. And I will destroy you in the air. I will deploy my ordnance to the ground,” boasted Charlie.
Meanwhile, Sheen is facing a new lawsuit from Brett Rossi, his ex-fiancee, reported ET.
In her lawsuit, Brett alleges that Charlie did not tell her that he was HIV-positive. Moreover, Rossi says Sheen abused her physically and made her have an abortion.
The lawsuit filed by lawyer David M. Ring for Brett claims that Charlie is guilty of false imprisonment, negligence, battery, and assault; resulting in emotional distress. In addition, it describes Rossi as trying to achieve a resolution with Sheen by having him provide her with a million dollars.
“[Brett] attempted to resolve the valid claims set forth herein with Sheen [who] agreed in principal to resolve…claims against him for the sum of $1 million to be paid on December 2, 2015, and to assign to her five percent of his 100 percent back end participation in the TV series Anger Management,” states the lawsuit.
During his TV appearance to discuss his announcement that he is HIV-positive, Sheen had described himself as being “shaken down” by those who wanted to exploit his health condition by making money from his misfortune.
“What people forget is that’s money they’re taking from my children,” declared Charlie. “They think it’s just me, but I’ve got five kids and a granddaughter. … I release myself from this prison today.”
But after making that statement, Sheen would not follow through with the arrangement, says the lawsuit.
Brett Rossi (real name: Scottine Ross) also claims in her lawsuit that despite Charlie’s statement that all of his partners with whom he had sex knew about his HIV-positive diagnosis, Sheen and Rossi were intimate five or more times before she found his HIV medication. Only then did Charlie confess, claims the lawsuit.
“If Sheen had disclosed to Plaintiff that he was HIV positive when they met for the very first time, Plaintiff would never have engaged in sex with him, and the resulting relationship between the two would never have occurred,” the lawsuit adds.
Charlie also allegedly made Brett undergo an abortion in 2014 because of the HIV.
“Sheen indicated that he did not want his child to have his blood type (i.e., HIV-positive),” says the lawsuit, adding that when she refused, “Sheen erupted into a fit of rage, stating he would ‘kick her to the curb’ if she did not have an abortion.”
In addition, Charlie allegedly informed her he did not desire her to have a “retarded” baby.
During their relationship, Rossi attempted to kill herself on two occasions, says the lawsuit.
“She feared that Sheen would continue to emotionally abuse her both privately and publicly, and she could not deal with the emotional distress anymore.[Ross] now realizes that he likely had no intention of ever marrying her or staying with her…Part of the entire ruse was to get her to fall in love with him, convince her that they would be together forever, and that, in turn, allowed [Ross] to be manipulated into agreeing to engage in unprotected sexual intercourse with Sheen, despite knowing he was HIV positive.”
The two originally met in 2013, when Charlie asked one of her friends to introduce them.
“[Sheen] ultimately told the friend he wanted to have sex with [Rossi and that] he would pay $10,000…if she came over to his house and had sex with him,” claims the lawsuit.
She complied, and the paid sex lead to a relationship. However, Rossi also describes Charlie as “violent, abusive, and uncontrollable” during the times when he was abusing alcohol and drugs.
In response to those allegations, the lawyer for Sheen is focused on arbitrating the matter privately, reported ABC News.
Marty Singer, Charlie’s lawyer, emphasized that every allegation will be responded to.
“Charlie Sheen intends to vigorously defend the lawsuit filed,” stated Singer. “Numerous witnesses will dispute each and every claim made by Ms. Rossi.”
The couple had their first encounter in 2013, and then became engaged the following year, but ended their romance prior to 2015.
