Charlie Sheen has done what he can to help Lindsay Lohan out. As a celebrity with his own troubled past, it seems like he’s been going out of his way to be a mentor to her. He recently said in a statement that she needs help, but she reportedly disagrees.
The Anger Management star sent TMZ a statement on Sunday, saying, “I have a kinship with somebody [Lindsay] who clearly needs a mentor, whether she wants one or not.”
Sheen continued, “She can continue to hang out with her dress shredding club buddies, or turn to me for some advice from a guy who's been down the road as well as every other side trail on the journey. If she listens, she'll win. If she doesn't, that's on her.”
Also, to make sure that no one thinks that they did anything off camera, Sheen added, “I love her, I respect her, and I've never laid a finger on her that wasn't on film. How ya like me now, America?”
Of course, now that TMZ got Sheen’s take on Lohan’s problems, the site had to ask sources close to her what she thought. They tell the site that Lohan doesn’t think her life is “out of control” or that she needs a mentor.
All this comes just after a judge denied Lohan’s lawyer a motion to dismiss her lying-to-cops charges. The case will go to trial, starting on March 18 and the judge suggested that Lohan get a new lawyer. Her current one, Mark Heller, is incompetent in the judge’s opinion.
Sheen has been helping Lohan out in recent months, giving her a check to help her pay off the IRS and appearing in a scene in Scary Movie 5 with her. She has also landed a guest role in Anger Management, which will air in April.
