Charlie Sheen -- My Advisors Didn't Quit ... We Broke Up


Charlie Sheen tells TMZ ... the people who guided his career have parted company with him NOT because they were fed up -- it was "mutual."

Charlie's lawyer, Jake Bloom, his publicist, Larry Solters and his manager, Mark Burg all said sayonara to Sheen last week. 

Charlie tells TMZ ... there are explanations for all 3 departures.

-- Jake Bloom: Charlie says Jake was there to make movie deals for him, and since he's not doing any movies "his brilliant skill set wasn't required."

-- Larry Solters: Charlie says Larry is a music publicist who he hired at the start of "Anger Management."  Charlie says he needed a TV publicist so he made a switch and hired TV veteran Jeff Ballard.  Charlie does not explain why he hired Larry in the first place.

-- Mark Burg: Charlie says Mark asked to step down because he just had a kid and wanted to spend more time with his family. 

Charlie then kind of backhandedly says, "I couldn't be more pleased with the current state of my team.  Much like their fearless leader, they don't believe in excuses, fatigue or failure."
