Charlie Sheen's former Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss is coming to the actor's defense saying that he's not a violent person. Heidi says:
“The truth is all my girls loved Charlie and I never heard any stories of him being violent towards them – several of them wanted to marry him actually. He is a very charismatic guy and people love him – that’s why he is one of the highest paid actors on television. I heard some stories of him losing his temper when girls would not leave his house in the past but that’s about it.
“I don’t know the status of his relationship with his current wife but if drugs were involved that could have really changed things. The Charlie I knew loved to party and maybe his wife is into that too but he didn’t have a reputation as a violent person back then."
Well we're sure her opinion really matters! Charlie Sheen testified against Fleiss during her 1995 trial after shelling out more than $50,000 in call girls from her service. Heidi doesn't have any hard feelings though saying:
“Look, I wasn’t happy that Charlie testified against me but that came about after the FBI found his traveler’s checks inside my purse…Despite the fact that he testified against me I hope his court case goes well for him and his wife – I’m sure Charlie will be okay he always seems to land on his feet.”
Prosecutors in the case involving his current wife Brooke Mueller are said to have been trying to interview ex-wife Denise Richards and ex-girlfriends Kelly Preston and Brittany Ashland about Charlie's behavior.
We all know about the gambling, drugs and hookers when he was married to Denise, but Charlie also accidentally shot Kelly Preston in the arm in 1990 and allegedly threw Brittany Ashland on the floor splitting open her lip in 1997!
Yikes — not violent our ass!
Update: According to Sheen's rep: "Charlie did not shoot Kelly Preston in the arm. In fact, he was not even in the room with her when his gun accidentally went off, hit a porcelain toilet and the
piece of porcelain hit her arm." And there you have it.
