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.

He is just scrambling in desperation to restore a bit of acceptance since the network is going on with the show excluding him. He is doing this stupid tour, robbing the public really, because he knows he now has no work after this. I wouldn't go to his smoke filled, rambling, idiotic spewing of nonsense if he paid me! He is the ugliest, most vile, witless, jerk of a has been I can think of. Why anyone would give him a dime is beyond me!

I hear both sides of all of this...since I personally do not know Charlie Sheen I really cannot weigh in on any of it...I just like him as an actor and hope to see more of him on TV and movies. If he has some inner demons to work on, I hope he takes care of them and gets back on the big screen. We who do not know should not judge.

John...Apparently you have no knowledge about firearms.
Revolvers have killed a lot of people when dropped. You NEVER
keep a shell in the cylinder resting under the hammer.
Always keep one cylinder totally empty and make sure it is
positioned under the hammer One advantage of a revolver is
when you shoot someone, the casing is not ejected like in a
automatic

Charlie..Baby? I got some news for you. Sometimes in life, we need to take responsibility for our drunken actions, rather than pushing the blame onto somebody else, someone innocent--someone like poor Kelly Preston. SO GET A CRACK-FREE LIFE AND MIND YOUR OWN FRIGGIN' BUISNESS YA DAMN MAN-WHORE!!!!

Seriously? I may love Sheen's work--2 1/2 men continually cracks me up :)))--but HONESTLY!! The gun dropped to the floor, the trigger hit by the tile. The bullet hits either the tiolet or wall, rocketing into Kelly Preston. Since 1990 Sheen has been thought to be guilty. 21 years later he decides to let out the "truth"?? Give me a friggin' break, man. Leave Kelly alone!!!! She has more important things in her life to think about than your selfish, idiotic, insomniatic lies of the revolver you kept in your pants!! If your going to lie about something, than make it your drug addiction--Not Kelly's life.
