Sheen's Uncle Looks to Capitalize on Charlie's Rehab

1/29/2011 10:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE: Joe Estevez tells TMZ the guy claiming to be his manager is just an acquaintance and does not rep him at all. He calls the whole thing a "total and complete fabrication."

Charlie Sheen's uncle, Joe Estevez, is looking to cash in on the problems of his nephew ... by lobbying for Charlie's role on "Two and a Half Men" while Charlie is in rehab.

Charlie Sheen's Uncle Rehab
TMZ has obtained a letter sent from Joe's manager to Chuck Lorre, the creator and EP of "Men." The letter describes Joe as "by far the funniest of the Sheen & Estevez clan."

Joe's manager throws out the idea, "Chuck, just a wild thought ... How about a test episode of 'Two and a Half Men' where Joe comes to house sit while Charlie is on 'vacation?'" Good to know Charlie's family has his best interest at heart.

Carlos Esteves aka Charlie Sheen, the biggest crack head in the history of crack cocaine.

100 years from now the word "crackhead" will be followed by "Charlie Sheen".

The most famous crackhead ever, Charlie Sheen.

Charlie Sheen alone immortalized the vice of smoking crack forever in the history of all mankind.

Crackhead Charlie Sheen we all have you to thank for eternally reminding mankind of it's failures.

Cavemen invented fire.
Pharoas built the pyramids.
Romans built roads.
Charlie Sheen smoked crack.

Hey Marty put on your serious face, get behind a podeium and tell the American people you didn't know your son had a breifcase of coke deleivered to his house everyday.

"I did not know my son had a brieface full of cocaine delivered to his house everday"

Do it Marty, CBS will stand next to you, they co-own the house right?


CBS OWNS the house Charlie Sheen was having coke delivered to.

You better get your suit and tie pressed Marty because they are going to put your a55 on tv next.

Monday the 911 call comes to the public, Marty. Your son is famous now for being a crack head. Dad shy now? Any cause worth fighting for except when it's your son, right Marty?

Hey Marty 60 arrests as a social acitivists but ZERO for your son the crack head.

Hey Now    

I wonder if Charlie ever thinks of his kids. There are 4 little ones and 1 adult right?

I'll tell you - if my dad was employing hookers every week and snorting coke - I would not be a happy camper. They are going to have to have years of therapy as they get older and even more as kids around them start talking. Can you imagine when his kids are teenagers in a few years?

After professing that there is nothing wrong with anything he does... His kids are going to grow up thinking he is the worst excuse for a human being.

If his dad weren't around, Charlie would be dead by now - and he can't even see it. Just because you can afford it doesn't mean its okay. Especially at the expense of the family and kids around you. Like they are not going to hear about what their father does. That's gonna f**k them up for sure - the ones that are 6 and 7 years old right now.

Does he not love them enough to even acknowledge that he might have a problem somewhere? He just thinks its all good then huh?

When people are telling you that the situation is alarming and something is very wrong - and you truly think there is not anything wrong at all - that should scare you enough to go into rehab and at least "research" what these "crazy folks" are speaking about. Isn't he even curious to find out if indeed he has a problem and maybe even more than one that needs treatment?

Ok so at first glance this does seem like an attempt to cash in on the misfortune of his nephew. Keep in mind, however, most of you are simply assuming what the motives for this letter are. Is anyone considering any other possible motives for this letter?

Money - this is the easiest assumption and therefor the most common. The problem with determining the motives of others, howerver, is that it is rarely such a simple proposition.


Protecting Charley - Perhaps Joe is truly worried about his newphew's future. Perhaps the network is considering canning the show entirely due to Charley's irresponsible behavior and, as a result; Perhaps Joe is simply attempting to step in and fill a void so his nephew will have a job to return to when he recovers.

When you assume, you make an a** out of you and, me; I'd rather not go there.

Hey Now    

Also - has Charlie ever served any jail time in the past? I'm not calling for his head like you guys here who just want to see him in jail. I just mean - in terms of some sort of intervention. Maybe jail would help him ?

Keep it real. Loser and envious uncle shows up at Charlie's place when he hears Charlie is MIA to supposedly clean up his act. Loser uncle tries to fill Charlie's shoes while he's there but just seems to botch everything up. Everyone quickly tires of the uncle so he's asked to leave and go back to struggling at his stand up comedy routine.

What's really wrong with this Sheen boy - like I care ? I mean, he's well past the age of responsibility. He's been tanking it for a lonnng time & @ very high volume for about the last three + months. His exploits are PUBLIC & iLLegaL, why doesn't he get arrested & jailed like anybody else would ? I say he's no "hero of the libertines", he's just another HollywooD f*ckwit bum & he should burn. F*ken oxygen thief. AND then "people" actually think he's cool 'cause he can be. Jeez.

Wow, poor Martin Sheen has a son who prefers to live a life with drugs and whores and a brother who should be ASHAMED of himself. As much as I have no sympathy for Charlie, aka Carlos, a greedy uncle like this should be written out of the family post haste. Charlie has made his choices in this life, has enough money to maintain it comfortably and thinks of no one but himself. Looks like his Uncle doesn't have the green, but he does share the selfish gene.
