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.

Unless Charlie had a civil war revolver in his pocket, there is no way on Earth it would fire as a result of being dropped. All revolvers have had hammer blocks for many, many decades.

Does it never end. Preston is one of those stars that is clean as a whistle, a family woman, quiet, religious, good actress. So sorry her name was ever associated with this looser.

H    

And another lame ass excuse from an arrested wife beater with a history of assaulting females. Why isn't he in jail. Oh, yeah when he was arrested by the feds he cut a deal and the rat snitch is still riding the rat snitch gravy train because no cops will give you a choice of jail or hospital when you damage personal property, harrass and threathen someone else while in the possession and under the influence of illegal drugs like he was in NYC.

Yeah, right. And it wasn't this arrested wife beater who's hands wrapped themselves around his latest wifes throat. She ran into them and she tried to strangle herself. And he wasn't driving at all no hands on the steering wheel either when his cars drove themselves over a cliff not once but twice

TO WHOCARES: You are living in a world os Satan and it is sad that you don't ACTUALLY read the Bible. It is the TRuth of GOD's Word. YES there is a GOD, JESUS CHRIST OUR SAVIOR, and the HOLY SPIRIT. I pray that you find Jesus in your heart and see the good. The disasters are natural and God lets things happen to increase faith and rely more on Him to show His love, mercy, and glory.

I wouldn't believe ANYTHING that Charlie Sheen says. No response from Kelly Preston's camp? That's because she's a better person than Sheen.

Loving Monterey    

Now he's attacking a woman who walked away from him and never said a bad word about him in her life?

This is pathetic! Just when I think he can't go any lower, he brings in a good person, mom and loving wife of another actor.

Chuckles is running out of bridges to burn. There are very few left. When the bridge burining is complete he will not be able to earn an income.

Maybe he can turn to his whores for financial aide
