Charlie Sheen could be the next Britney Spears. Wait, let us clarify, since that could mean so many things. According to Radar Online, the actor’s concerned parents, Martin and Janet Sheen, are considering a conservatorship that would give them control over his affairs — just like Jamie Spears did with his daughter. (And look how well she has turned out!)
Though the actor is said to be undergoing treatment in his home, dad Martin believes “Charlie isn’t rehabbing at home. That term just doesn’t exist,” a source said. “Charlie is calling the shots, he hasn’t surrendered to sobriety, and until that happens, this cycle won’t end. Charlie is absolutely refusing to go to rehab. He is a 45-year-old man, and no one can force him to go. That is why his parents are exploring what legal options they have, if any, to save his life.”
Since the “Two and a Half Men” star’s latest bender landed him in the hospital, loved ones and professional associates are increasingly worried about his health.
“Charlie is coughing a lot, and he doesn’t seem to care what he is doing to his body,” the source said. “Charlie truly thinks he is invincible, and that he can do as much drugs as possible with no ramifications.
“Charlie looks awful. He is very, very depressed and feels like the world is going against him. Martin and Janet know that it’s highly unlikely their [conservatorship] petition would be granted, but they are trying to do whatever possible to save Charlie’s life.”
And then he can go on a triumphant comeback tour. Oh, wait, no, we are thinking of Britney. It is so easy to get them confused!
Here we go again. Lindsay Lohan’s probation officer was reportedly notified that she is the target of a grand theft investigation involving a $2,500 necklace that went missing from a Venice store.
The necklace was returned by a pal on Lindsay’s behalf, TMZ reported — soon after police had obtained a warrant to search her pad.
Sources close to the actress say the necklace was loaned to her and a stylist failed to return it promptly. Funny how nothing is ever LiLo’s fault.
Kelsey Grammer’s wedding is likely to be the most talked-about event of the season — even if it does not happen. The former “Frasier” star has publicly declared his intention to marry Kayte Walsh this month, but there is one hitch: He is still hitched to his third wife, Camille Grammer.
If he does not reach a settlement with the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star before the Feb. 25 date, Kelsey might have to postpone the nuptials, “making the invitation, which has already gone out, a collector’s item,” a source told the New York Post.
And while we are guessing the wealthy sitcom veteran will not be too bummed if he loses his deposit, he and his bride-to-be are evidently going all out for a lavish reception at NYC’s Plaza Hotel.
“Kelsey and Kayte have booked the Plaza ballroom for the reception,” another insider said. “Kayte has laid out all the details, all the timings. The room will be decorated all in white, including a white cake.”
All white? Really? For a fourth marriage? When the ink will not even be dry on his divorce papers? Tacky.
