Oh, from the mouths of crackies and alcoholics…
Charlie Sheen has been vocal about the soft spot he has for Lindsay Lohan, because like attracts like, right? The two, who met on the set of Scary Movie 5 have supposedly never made the beasts with two backs – so says Sheen – but Charlie looks at Linds as a junior version of himself. To the point where he even paid off $100,000 in back taxes for her and is got her a guest gig on his TV show, Anger Management.
Now, Charlie told TMZ LiLo is in trouble and he’s offering to help her out:
Charlie tells TMZ, “I have a kinship with somebody [Lindsay] who clearly needs a mentor, whether she wants one or not. She can continue to hang out with her dress shredding club buddies, or turn to me for some advice from a guy who’s been down the road as well as every other side trail on the journey.”
He adds, “If she listens, she’ll win. If she doesn’t, that’s on her.”
You’ll recall … Charlie and Lindsay struck up a friendship while working together on “Scary Movie 5,” after which Charlie cut Lindsay a $100,000 check to help with her tax problems. Lindsay’s now returning the favor by appearing in an upcoming episode of “Anger Management” — actually, that may be Charlie doing Lindsay another solid.
I guess this is a nice gesture. I mean, at the end of the day, it’s still Charlie Sheen so do with that what you will, but in regard to Lindsay, he truly seems to care what happens to her and wants to help her stop fucking up her life.
However, and not surprisingly, Blohan isn’t having any of it, and is pissed Charlie keeps blabbing about her (like that’s what’s making her fuck ups stay front and center in the tabloids and not her own dumb ass decisions.) A source close to Lindsay *coughDinaLohancough* says that Charlie just needs to shut the hell up about it:
Sources close to LiLo tell TMZ … while she appreciates everything Sheen has done for her — and he’s done a lot — she would NEVER take him as a mentor. She’s saying she knows her life is “out of control,” but doesn’t think the precept, “It takes one to know one,” is the way to go.
As we first reported … Sheen told TMZ he thinks Lindsay needs a mentor and he believes he’s the man for the job.
She says she’s grateful Charlie gave her $100k for her back taxes and supported her in “Scary Movie 5.” Lindsay says she talks to Charlie from time to time … but gripes he has no business talking about her to the media.
Dina The source also says Blohan’s been seeing a therapist, which has helped a lot, and she’s on the road to getting her life back together (uhhhhhh).
Forgive me for being a skeptic, but I don’t believe it. This girl is a train wreck of the worst sort, and I don’t believe she admits she has a problem because those around her enable her to live blind.
