Charlie Sheen

Paid Lindsay Lohan

$100K to Cover Tax Debt

11/25/2012 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Don't ever say Charlie Sheen's not the charitable type -- because he recently cut Lindsay Lohan a $100,000 check to cover the actress' six-figure tax bill ... all out of the goodness of his heart ... sources tell TMZ.

Sources close to Lindsay tell us she and Charlie became close pals while on the set of "Scary Movie 5" back in September -- spending a lot of time together both on and off the set.

During their bonding period, we're told Lindsay and Charlie talked about everything -- and at one point, Lindsay mentioned her ongoing tax problems.

We're told Charlie offered to cut her a check then and there to get the IRS off her tail, but Lindsay refused.

Fast forward to last week -- sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ, Lindsay's biz manager received a check from Charlie for $100,000.

We're told Lindsay was blown away by Charlie's generosity -- and immediately applied the money to her outstanding tax bill.

TMZ broke the story ... Lindsay allegedly owed Uncle Sam $233,904 in unpaid taxes for 2009 and 2010 -- but thanks to Charlie, that number's nearly been cut in half.

As we reported, Lindsay's slated to earn over $2 MILLION by the end of this year -- but who knows where that's going.

He's an idiot to give money to a shop-a-holic who's always out spending, drives a new car almost every time she's seen out in public, and is hell-bent on being broke

A. It's already been proven that she will not be making even $1 million this year.
B. I've heard from actual RELIABLE sources that the story about Charlie giving her money is not true at all and that they also didn't spend any time together. Even he found her difficult to work with. Furthermore, if he had written her a check for that much money, she would have to pay taxes on it. From the same very reliable source, I also heard that people who give Lindsay money never give her checks, so she can avoid paying taxes on it.

HA! I'll bet Lindsay is NOT HAPPY with this story!

They won't put you in prison for owing back taxes, but they will for failing to CLAIM cash income!

Lohan doesn't have any money. It's very expensive to try and keep up appearances like she's relevant in anyway. She's a no talent tabloid joke.

With her horrific reviews for this disaster of a movie (I hope Lifetime gets ratings for everything Lohan did and put the Network, producers, director, cast and crew through) which Lohan will take credit for, see because of 'me', they got their best ratings ever and blame everyone but her own total lack of talent. They won't work with her again.

With the crap she pulled with SM5, Lohan knows that's it. She's done.

These people live in a fantasy world I can only read about. I don't know how you make that much money and go that far into debt. I don't understand being able to 'write a check' to cover someone elses 6 figure tax debt. I'm glad Charlie is helping out a friend but does anyone need any more proof that we shouldn't be following these people and emulating them? They don't live in the same reality the rest of the world

help this young woman    

HaHaHa Just another TMZ story coming from Michael Lohan. Lindsay had already paid the 2009 back taxes! That has already been reported. This story comes directly from Michael Lohan who has been harassing Lindsay on twitter. Now Michael Lohan and TMZ are harassing Lindsay before her big public premiere of Liz and Dick.
Charlie Sheen has been more of a father to Lindsay than Michael Lohan has ever been!

So many bad reviews for Liz and Dick that I won't be watching tonight.

After all, if I want to see Lindsay bomb a role I can watch any movie that she has ever made!

The reviewers seem to be warming up a bit:
'Liz & Dick is rather stunningly unpleasant to look at, with a scene set at the Spanish Steps a particular aesthetic disaster...... The hotel rooms are ugly, an Oscars ceremony looks a fright, and nobody dresses well. Liz and Dick's jetset life seems almost as glamorous as a third national road tour of "Seussical".' "I'm not sure what Lifetime thought it could get away with here, budget-wise, but good grief is this an ugly, cheapo affair." "Trust me that this egregiously slapdash movie is worth your time, if only, actually definitely only, for the incredulous guffaws it frequently elicits."
