Charlie Sheen's Friends

Feared He Would Die

10/26/2010 1:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen has been hanging out with some "bad people" over the last few months -- and some people who were trying to save him felt he might die ... this according to multiple sources connected to the actor.

Our sources say Sheen -- who is currently hospitalized after a drinking binge that ended with Charlie allegedly trashing his NYC hotel room -- has been having renewed substance abuse problems since August, shortly after he entered his guilty plea in the Aspen domestic violence case.

We're told several people came into Charlie's life soon after the court case ended that took him "in a bad direction."  We're told when Charlie was at the Playboy mansion in August, he was already drinking again.

One source who has been working with Charlie recently says he's been "a tortured soul for months" and his friends openly talked about how they feared for his life.  Another source very close to Charlie echoed the fear that Charlie's most recent downturn could end tragically.

I watched the show last night (due to Elizabeth Vassey being on the show) and it seems to me he and his character needs to grow up already. This is just sad that these stories are still coming out.

Charlie's a wreck of a human being who is crippling his himself and his children. Plus, the last two episodes of his show were all about prostitutes. He's a wreck but no "Poor Charlie" from me. I feel badly for his family. Charlie's decided who and what he wants to be.

Charlie just needs more and better women in his life! Can't keep recycling last night's news and hope for a better day tomorrow; doesn't work that way. More babes, new babes is the best answer! YeeeHaaaa! Ride 'em Charlie!

I've always been in his corner and still rooting for him :) Hope he can get sober again... I remember when he went through this in the 80's. I really felt for his dad.

....and we are suppose to feel sorry for him? He's not a kid who got in with the wrong crowd. He's an adult, who if he hadn't spent his life in a bottle, would have the maturity to make sound decisions about his life. He owns the blame for what he has become.

Unfortunately Charlie is never going to grow up. He seems to forget about all these innocent children that he brought into this world.

Isn't he violating his probation? This is ridiculous all because he is a movie star and has alot of money, another Lindsay Lohan....
