Sheen’s Generous Streak Continues With Funeral Donation

Charlie Sheen may have a bad reputation when it comes to the ladies and the illegal substances, but lately he’s garnering almost as much attention for his charitable side as he does for the bad boy stuff.

Sheen’s latest foray into good deeds is a check he wrote for $12,000 to help pay for the funeral costs of the photographer who was struck by a car and killed recently while trying to get a shot of Justin Bieber’s car.

“A tragic incident like this erases the line between the photographer and the subject. It’s an unforgiving moment that begs us all to be human and work as one to prevent this in the future. As parents, we are all not supposed to bury our children. My deepest condolences to the families involved,” he said.

Sheen has been generous with his dough lately, shelling out $100,000 to Lindsay Lohan to help her pay off a tax debt when they were working together on the latest “Scary Movie” installment and later giving $75,000 to a police officer he’d just met to help cover the medical bills his cancer-stricken daughter was racking up.

So far, the only one who hasn’t expressed gratitude is Lohan.

“I’m still waiting for a text to say ‘thank you,’” he said of the young actress. “Anything, you know?”

    First I’d like to say “GOOD FOR YOU CHARLIE, YOU GO”!!! I’m 49 years old and have no dental insurance tooth #2 broke off 3 weeks ago, so I’m starting to look like I live under a bridge. I have Maryland mecical assisance (medicade), koodos for me. They don’t pay adult dental other than cleanings… I need tooth implants. No one is able to help me. I’m the only one who cares!! After all can STILL talk. I owe the IRS 20K, and the state 7K. I wish Charlie knew my plight. Again, Charlie Good job may God continue to Bless you!

    Charlie Sheen is really doing some good things for others in need…Way to go Charlie!!!

    I am a disabled veteran who desperately wants her own home. I would greatly appreciate $40,000 for me to purchase the home that I am wanting. Please help make that dream come true!?!

      As a disabled vet, you’re entitled to zero down financing, plus a large disabiity compensation, as well as your military retirement and probably Social Security. What an insult to see your post begging for money, which obviously isn’t for a house. Shame on you for making our military members appear so pathetic.

    To all of these begging for help…. stop whining !!! If you are alive and breathing, dont complain… so you cant buy a new house… be happy with what you have instead of begging from those who are successful !!!

    I believe some of these posters need to take their plights to “Extreme House Makeover” for some compensations….Yes, Charlie Sheen did some great deeds for people but this is not a forum for people to post, begging him for some financial assistance….Don’t get me wrong…You have my sincere empathy for your financial challenges.

    I think people should not be asking Charlie Sheen for money, if you believe in God somehow he will provide.Say your prayers to God, Charlie Sheen earned his money and is donating to do good, great for Charlie Sheen he can’t help everyone who has need. is it a want or a need ,a big difference as said in church. God Bless you all and Charlie Sheen.

      AMEN !!!!!

      Who said she asked??? I didn’t get that in the article !! If ‘celebrities’ would all be that generous to us normal people, instead of a Donald Trump charity event, some of our lives would be so much easier!!! Good deed Charlie !!

    I just pray his good deeds will in some way assist him in the recovery he so needs. Before he becomes the one who has the funeral.
