Charlie Sheen recently tweeted a photograph of him and Mayor Villaraigosa. The photo has caught a lot of attention and resulted in some seriously negative flack for the Mayor.
Villaraigosa said he only spent three minutes with Sheen in Cabo after the media picked up on the tweet. However, Sheen says the mayor partied with him and many attractive women in Sheen's own hotel room. Sheen tweeted the photo and wrote: “From Boyle Heights 2 Mayor of LA! Antonio Villaraigosa knows how to party.”
According to NBC, Mayor Villaraigosa refutes the claims he partied with Sheen. He stated he is in the “picture taking business” and only by chance ran into Sheen while in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico on vacation.
Huffington Post reported that the Mayor said, “I had a three minute conversation with him, … I took a picture with him. I have never said no to anyone who wanted to take a picture.”
Sheen, however, told TMZ on Tuesday: "I memorize 95 pages a week, so the last thing that I am is memory challenged. We hung out for the better part of two hours, discussing his L.A. roots, his poignant bullet campaign as well as his numeric 3 AM lawn-watering tactics."
Sheen continued on regarding the mayor saying, "He's a terrific guy, a great Mayor and he can drink with the best of 'em: Me. Quite a memorable night indeed." Sheen also claims there was at least one female porn star in his hotel room with him and the Mayor.
The Mayor on Monday commented to NBC, “You're in that business of making people look bad, of creating some kind of caricature. I’m not in that business." Mayor Villaraigosa's spokesperson told many news sources, "The Mayor has no additional comment on this issue."
