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.

OooooNooo!    

Mel gets tossed off a movie but everyone wants to give poor old Charlie another chance and keep him on the show -- even after domestic violence. Could it be Mel is a conservative and Charlie is a lib? Naw, I'm sure that has nothing to do with it.

And you're right...the producers of this show better wise up...all you hear is that the "character spends thousands on Hookers (as apparently sheen does too. life imitating art?)

Enough...I'm done watching that show.

An addict who plays a functional addict on TV. Recipe for disaster. But there's a lot of dough on the table. LiLo makes a fortune doing interviews and promos resulting from her own bout. That's Hollywood folks.

Bunny that earns scooby snacks!    

Charlie is an adult. He is responsible for his own actions. If the people around him were not good for him, then HE needs to recognize that an get away from them. It is no ones fault but his own.

Charlie's ups and downs are quite normal for a typical addict. His addiction is so intense he can't even make it 3-months without falling completely off the wagon. Just like Lindsay, Charlie should take some real time off, move away from temptation, start a new life.

Or he can just keep on keepin' on, and die waaaaay sooner. It is more interesting to watch him beat the life out of himself, so us normal observers win either way.

It's bad enough that this ammoral creep was born w/a silver spoon in his mouth, but the fact that a TV show was made for his womanizing, selfish, immature character is disgusting. He is self-serving, self-centered, self, self, self. CBS should be ashamed for encouraging masogonysm and for both CBS and Sheen profiting from it. He is ugly, arrogant, snyde and never truly remorseful for anything he does regardless of how it affects his kids and family. I wish he would OD already, so we don't have to see his nasty mug again! Oh, he's also getting that alcoholic bulbous nose!

Charlie is and has always been surrounded by yes-men and ENABLERS who fetch him his alcohol and coke and then partake with him. The ones who purport to be sober are NOT (yes, they are lying!). Two in particular that I can think of off the top who are his little butt-boys. All of you fools need to grow the *@#$ up!
