Ah, Charlie Sheen, you never fail to disappoint. Just when your last scandal was fading in our memory, you go and pull an old-school train-wreck move like (allegedly) drunkenly trashing a hotel room and being brought to the hospital by cops. Oh, and did we mention there was (allegedly) a naked escort present?
According to Life&Style magazine, when cops arrived at NYC’s posh Plaza Hotel around 2 a.m., they found the actor unconscious and half-naked on the bed, with a woman allegedly identified as an escort in the closet. “She was fearing for her life and was naked,” relayed a source. “Charlie was incoherent but started screaming slurs at the cops. They recognized him immediately and gave him two options: They could take him to the hospital or take him down to the station. Charlie chose the hospital.”
TMZ sources corroborate that the star was “intoxicated, irrational” and “emotionally disturbed.”
Making matters worse, Charlie was supposed to be spending time with his daughters, who were staying in nearby rooms with his ex-wife Denise Richards.
“His two daughters were sleeping in the next room,” said the source. “Denise had to go with the cops and leave the girls with a nanny. She looked distraught.”
Reportedly, tables and chairs had been thrown around, and a chandelier was damaged; overall, Charlie clocked about $7,000 in damage to the luxury suite. The “Two and a Half Men” star, who is just a week away from completing his probation, reportedly told cops he had been “out partying” and become enraged when he returned to his room and couldn’t find his wallet.
Charlie’s rep had a highly plausible rationale for the incident, stating that the actor “had an adverse allergic reaction to some medication.” And this explains the escort how?
After dalliances with teen heartthrobs like Joe Jonas and Taylor Lautner, Taylor Swift has graduated to grown-up guys. After a (rumored) fling with John Mayer, about which she (allegedly) penned the scathing post-breakup song “Dear John,” the precocious country artist has apparently moved on to another older man: actor Jake Gyllenhaal.
Though we don’t know how their paths first crossed, the 20-year-old singer and the 29-year-old “Prince of Persia” star went apple-picking in upstate New York on Saturday (awww!), and later teamed up to support Taylor’s friend Emma Stone while she hosted “Saturday Night Live.”
“They showed up together,” a source relayed to People magazine. “They walked around together backstage, but they were careful not to be seen too close. It was hard to tell if they were together, but everyone was shocked that she brought him.”
Sunday, they had brunch with another couple in a Brooklyn neighborhood not far from where Jake’s sister Maggie lives, where they were spotted strolling after the meal.
Is Taylor really interested in Jake — or just using him for material for her next “I’m so brokenhearted” anthem?
Was it major drama when Jessica Simpson and beau Eric Johnson found themselves dining at Hollywood’s The Red O — where her ex-husband Nick Lachey was also out with longtime love Vanessa Minnillo? Was it? Huh? Huh?
“He was at the same restaurant,” Jess curtly told USA Today. “I didn’t speak to him.”
No drinks thrown? What’s wrong with Hollywood these days?
