Charlie Sheen has finally admitted what many people have suspected for some time now. His highly public meltdown has forced him to admit, via another installment in his media campaign, an interview with “Life & Style” magazine:
“I’m losing my mind”.
He is finally asking for help. He is no longer so adamant that he is “winning”, but instead is “ready to call anyone to help.”
The final straw came not from losing his highly lucrative job on the hit TV show, “Two and a Half Men”. It was losing custody of his 23-month-old twin sons, Bob and Max, whom he had with estranged wife Brooke Mueller, who has battled her own addiction issues.
“I”m really trying to contain myself right now,” says Sheen. “My lawyer wants to come over to my house and take the bullets out of my gun.”
His lawyers aren’t the only ones worried. Friends consider Charlie Sheen as a serious suicide risk, “a ticking time bomb”. They say that, contrary to Sheen’s denials (and more understandably) he is really upset about being fired from his hit show and that his struggles to deal with Brooke and to regain custody of his sons have become too much for the troubled star.
“We all fear he could do something drastic like committing suicide or falling back on hard drugs,” said the friend, who didn’t want to be named.
Charlie Sheen has stated that his main priority is getting custody of his sons back.
“I’ll do anything to get them back. Now I don’t give a f_ about the show or about anything [else].”
Of course he does, but this added blow of losing his sons could, friends fear, be too much for Charlie Sheen to bear.
“He’s a danger to himself – a really big danger.”
