Charlie Sheen's manager has hit back at rumours the troubled actor is stuck in a destructive downward spiral following his New York hotel meltdown last month (Oct10).
The Two and a Half Men star was hospitalised in the Big Apple last week (26Oct10) after allegedly suffering an adverse reaction to medication and trashing his suite at the Plaza Hotel.
Subsequent reports have suggested Sheen has been putting his life in danger by binging on drugs, but his manager Mark Burg has dismissed the gossip as "reckless lies".
He tells TMZ.com that he visited his client at home, and the actor was stunned to learn of the claims about his health, explaining, "Charlie looked at me like I was nuts. He looked as normal as he's looked in a long time."
