Charlie Sheen has spoken out to clear up the rumours about his personal life, insisting there are far more important issues in the world than his headline-grabbing antics.
The troubled actor was hospitalised in Los Angeles last week (ends28Jan11) to treat a hernia after allegedly indulging in a wild night of partying. He is now receiving treatment with a rehab-at-home program, while taking an extended hiatus from work on his TV show Two And A Half Men.
He released a short statement, thanking fans and colleagues for their support while he seeks help, and he has now spoken out to silence gossip about his troubles.
In a text interview with E! Online, Sheen was asked about a report suggesting his famous father Martin wants to seek a conservatorship order to take control of his affairs - and the actor vehemently denied the story.
He writes, "All c**p... Believe nothing. I will never speak about any of this as long as I'm alive. You're all gonna have to keep towing the same redundant line, guessing wrong."
And Sheen is adamant his story is not as important as coverage of the mass protests in Egypt, where violence has broken out as citizens demonstrate against the country's leaders.
He adds, "BTW (by the way), two wars are in an endless state of sorrow. Egypt about burned to the ground, and all you people care about is my bulls**t... (It's) pathetic... Shame shame shame."
