Charlie Sheen's Publicist Quits

2/28/2011 4:04 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen's longtime publicist has quit, TMZ has learned.

Stan Rosenfield

Stan Rosenfield tells TMZ ... he's resigning because "I worked with Charlie Sheen for a long time and I care about him very much, however, at this time, I'm unable to work effectively as his publicist and have respectfully resigned."

Rosenfield resigned minutes after Sheen appeared live on TMZ this morning ... where the actor insinuated Stan lied to the media on his behalf regarding the hotel trashing incident at The Plaza Hotel in NYC back in October.

Stan had issued a statement saying Charlie was hospitalized that night for an "allergic reaction."

When Mike Walters asked Charlie about the medical explanation, CS responded, "I was asleep when that statement went out."

Sheen added, "I respect Stan ... he was doing the best he could in that moment ... had I confirmed with him, I probably would have come up with something better. "

Stan had lost his edge. He can't come up good PR's on his own anymore. He just fell on his own sword.

Sheen has a point to a point. The TV show was about Sheen being Sheen and it took off. Sheen made alot of people money including himself.

Chuck Lorre has other top rated shows and Sheen is not going to bring down CBS.

Big time money that could change at anytime. There is not an actor who does not know this.

Sheen may be getting a lot of publicity now, but like everything else hollywood, it will die down. Then where will he be? He'll be uninsurable for movies, tv anything. Even his fans will move on. Shame for him, cause he had a good thing going.

That guy is an AMAZING publicist. That he could keep the lid on this crazy pot for so long, while Sheen has prospered is incredible.

They ruined the greatest show of all time.Whats wrong with a grown adult enjoying some of the finer pleasures in life? NOT A DAMN THING.

The train wreck continues. You hate to see it happening, but at the same time its too odd to not watch. The only people he hasn't alienated are the Hos but then again that's only because he pays them $30k.

What a broken mess

Can you imagine what a horrible job it's been trying to put a happy face on Charlie's crap? He and the studios did a great job of turning everyone against Richards (of course, now we know everything she said was true) but there's not much you can say when your client is arrested for attempting to slit his wife's throat and it's pretty much been downhill ever since. Even so, I'll bet he's still managed to keep some stuff quiet between that and the beginning of this mess with the NY hooker. The hookers will leave when the money runs out or they just can't stand Sheen and his inflatable ego anymore. I doubt there is enough money in the world at some point.
