"Slash sat me down at his house and said, 'you've got to clean up your act'. You know you've gone too far when Slash is saying you've got to get into rehab."
Where do we start? In 1990, having followed in his father's footsteps into the acting world, Charlie entered a spiral of drink and drugs. And it was around that time when he messed up his relationship with Kelly Preston by shooting her in the arm (apparently by accident). A few years later, Sheen was named as one of the highest-profile customers of Hollywood madam, Heidi Fleiss. Sheen commented, "I love sex, and I can afford it."
In 1998 Sheen thought it was worth trying to inject cocaine, and immediately overdosed. As a violation of his parole (he'd been convicted of assaulting an ex-girlfriend), he was arrested and sent to rehab.
He'd apparently put his bad boy days behind him when he married Denise Richards, but the couple divorced in 2006 after four years, leading to Charlie's third marriage, this time to estate agent, Brooke Mueller. By 2009, Mueller pressed domestic violence charges against Sheen. Then he went and got the show he earns $2m an episode for pulled for the season.
