Charlie Sheen has been in and out of the headlines for years. Whether it was his movie roles, his Hollywood antics, his high-profile hook-ups, his fantastically messy divorces, or his multiple drug-fueled public meltdowns, Mr. Sheen has pretty much been entertainment news fodder for the last two decades. While his father and brother, both successful actor/directors, have managed to remain largely away from the public eye, Charlie Sheen has seemed to bask in the attention his infamous behavior brings. His most recent problems led to his being fired from the top rated sitcom in the country, and since then, he has been using his "crazy-boy" reputation as easy entrée to the talk show, and one-man show circuit. He also reportedly receives $250,000 and a private jet to show up at private parties, sporting events, or mall openings. With that kind of cash available to him for simply being his own, screwed-up self, it is no wonder that he is seemingly unconcerned with re-launching his stalled acting career, or cleaning up his behavior in general. One of the ways he has chosen to spend his money is through real estate purchases, primarily in the Mulholland Estates section of Sherman Oaks, California.
Most recently, he purchased a $6.9 million, 9,020 square foot, six-bedroom, nine-bath home around the corner from his current residence. The mansion, which was formerly owned by the producer of the film, "Black Swan", also sports high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, a library, a pantry, a wet-bar, a pool, a spa, multiple living rooms, an office, multiple fireplaces, a massive outdoor veranda, landscaped grounds, and a sunken outdoor kitchen/barbecue area with seating. He reportedly purchased the home for one of his ex-wives or for some other group of women. Who knows? It is difficult to keep up with the actor these days, as his behavior, and his purchases, are consistently over-the-top.
