Sheen then landed a starring role as beleaguered bachelor Charlie Harper on the CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men. At one point Sheen was reportedly paid $1.8 million per epsiode, making him the highest-paid actor on television.
Notorious for his recurrent battles with drugs and alcohol, Sheen was again the subject of negative publicity when he served as the star witness in the 1995 trial of Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss. He confessed to spending an excess of $50,000 to purchase sexual services from 27 different prostitutes. The following year, Sheen was arrested and charged with the assault of former girlfriend Brittany Ashland. Pleading no contest to the battery, he received a suspended sentence and two years of probation.
In addition to his acting accomplishments, Sheen has published a book of poetry titled Peace of Mind (1991).
In June 2002, Sheen wed actress Denise Richards in Los Angeles; the couple has two daughters, Sam and Lola. In January 2006, the couple announced they were divorcing. Sheen's previous marriage to model Donna Peele ended in divorce in 1995. He has a daughter, Cassandra Sheen, with high-school sweetheart Paula Profitt. In May 2008, Charlie Sheen married Brooke Mueller, a real estate investor. In May 2009, Mueller gave birth to twins, Bob and Max.
While he starred on the top-rated sitcom on television, Sheen's bad boy image took on a life of its own. In December 2009, he was arrested for assaulting his wife, Brooke Mueller, and spent 30 days in a rehab center. In October 2010, Sheen ran into trouble again when he was arrested for causing $7,000 of damages in an alcohol and cocaine-fuled bender. Mueller and Sheen divorced in May 2011.
Sheen's personality took a toll on his career in February 2011, when a conflict with Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre led Warner Brothers to cancel the remaining four seasons of the show, and ban Sheen from the production lot.
At the same time, Sheen embarked on a series of now-infamous interviews. Rambling and defiant, Sheen said that he drinks "tiger blood," and is on a drug "named Charlie Sheen." Sheen insisted he was sober during the interviews. In April, he began a nationwide tour called "My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not An Option."
