Charlie Sheen: Kelly Preston Shot Herself

5/3/2011 4:26 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen claims he did not shoot Kelly Preston ... and that it was Kelly herself who caused the gun to fire and injure herself in the infamous 1990 incident.

Sheen gave his version of events during his "My Violent Torpedo of Truth" stop in Vancouver Monday night.  He says he was downstairs drinking coffee, when he heard a shot from upstairs. 

Sheen says he then saw a naked Kelly Preston at the top of the stairs, covered in blood.

Charlie explained Kelly had picked up a pair of his pants in the bathroom -- when a revolver that was secreted in his pocket fell to the ground and discharged.   Sheen claims the bullet hit the toilet and either shrapnel or a piece of porcelain from the toilet ricocheted and struck her.

Charlie says at the time he knew he'd be blamed for it.

Kelly and Charlie broke off their engagement shortly after the incident. So far, no comment from Preston's camp.

'Jersey Shore' -- Surprising Living Arrangement


The hook to "Jersey Shore" in Italy is the place where the cast will be living ... and it's not the place being cited by numerous news reports.

Sources connected to the show and with direct knowledge tell TMZ ... the TRUE location where the cast will be staying has not been revealed ... but we're told it won't be an apartment ... a house ... a hotel ... or a church.

TMZ has obtained photos of a new patio deck built off the back of the apartment complex where the gang is RUMORED to be staying -- complete with studio lights -- but we're told the rumors are 100% false. However, the location MAY be used in the show, if producers like the way the set turns out.

We're told NO ONE from the cast -- including Snooki, Situation and Pauly D -- have been informed where they will be staying ... and producers plan to keep it a secret until the gang gets off the plane.

I want to Thank Charlie Sheen for touring the Tornado damage in Tuscaloosa, Alabama where my daughter went to college. I commend him for his efforts and despite what people say about him, he's a good man with a big heart. Charlie absolutely did not have to stop in T-town and pledge his support, but he did and that makes him a hero to me. Now seeing a picture of Charlie in the Bama gear, wow...Roll Tide!

I can't figure out why people would spend their money to see this guy. Now he is bringing Kelly Preston into it.He is a mess and people go laugh at his garbage. Why does he have to bring Kelly into his act? And lie about things. As far as him going to Tuscaloosa, why would you want someone like him in Bible country?He wouldn't know a thing about the bible.Now tell me he came there and helped clean up the devastation? Or wrote a check to help clean up and put families lives back together , I would be a little more impressed by this loser. He is only a winner in his own mind.I wish people would quit feeding this guy's ego so he would be forced to get the help he so desperately needs.

CHARLIE IS VERY SAD. HE CAN'T KEEP HIS PRIVATE LIFE TO HIMSELF. HE'S A DISGRACE TO HIS ENTIRE FAMILY. IF HE LOVED HIS CHILDREN HE WOULD STOP TALKING TO THE PRESS. SHAME ON HIM! JORDIN SPARKS LOOKS GROSS TO ME. SORRY, I JUST DON'T LIKE HER BIG LEGS

Hm.. best move Kelly ever made getting away from this nut job. I am sure she is much happier with John. Good choices. I think Charlie could take some lessens from her on good choices.

@ Cindy Cox. Bible Country? Who cares what he believes or knows about the bible. He wanted to help and raise money. The Bible is a bunch of fictional stories made up to teach moral points. If there was such thing as Bible country why would all those bad things happen there. AL is on the bottom of the list for being one of the poorest and uneducated states, maybe thats why its bible country. Kind of like a sheltered teenager that still believes in Santa Clause.

armin    

now lets get this straight so I understand you. You think Sheen is to be commended for 'stopping by'??? He did nothing, nothing. He didnt pick up any debris, he didnt donate any money to anyone, and all he did was to stop by?? Around here we call that a gawker at best, but if he had the gaul to stop by and not lift a finger then you think he should be congratulated for that?? Something is way wrong with that picture.....

What a moron Charlie is. Kelly did not shoot herself if the gun supposedly fell out of his pants pocket and fired by accident. He needs to shut up already, who in their right mind is paying money to see this idiot.

Everybody's criticizing Charlie for being self-involved, but he took time to go to Tuscaloosa and offer support. Also, it makes me happy to know that John Travolta's wife was repeatedly plowed by Charlie before she went over to the dark side. Go, Charlie, and keep winning!

Who would go with someone like him? Even way back then...well,
that tells me that these women have low self-esteem. . . or are dumber than dirt.
I have never gone with a man who was stupid or a substance abuser. I don't care who "they are" . . .you're asking for trouble.
