Charlie Sheen remains as controversial as ever. The former Two and a Half Men star has actually created a series of headlines lately, as his former girlfriend obtained a restraining order against him.
Brett Rossi’s lawyer claimed that Charlie Sheen made some threats to kill her in a recorded conversation, so she took the needed legal steps to make sure that she will be safe.
Without a doubt, it seems that things are getting quite bad between Charlie and his former girlfriend. Rossi filed the restraining order as an emergency procedure on Friday, as she claimed that she was really scared of the famous actor. She filed a report with the Los Angeles Police Department and then she received a 7-day restraining order against Sheen.
As imagined, Rossi claimed that she plans on extending the order received in court. Rossi has not officially reveal exactly what happened between her and Sheen to make her so scared of him, but some insiders claimed that Rossi really feared for her life. The insider claimed that Rossi read in a National Enquirer report that Sheen called her a “piece of s**t needs to be fu**ing buried. …Family of gangsters. You get it.”
“Ms. Rossi is terrified after listening to the recording of Mr. Sheen apparently threatening her life. She takes the threat as being serious, given what she knows about Mr. Sheen. She will take all necessary steps with law enforcement and the courts to protect herself,” the star’s lawyer said.
A source talking to the New York Daily News also confirmed the claims. “Honestly, she’s terrified. He said he was going to pay someone $20,000 to kill her. Lots of people might say, ‘That’s just Charlie being Charlie,’ but we’ve lived through O.J. We don’t take this as a joke,” the insider explained.
What had Charlie Sheen to say about this whole situation? Well, he claimed that Bret Rossi was doing this just for the media. So, a lawyer for the actor claimed that the move was a “publicity stunt.” “The TRO was obtained without notice to Charlie Sheen or his attorney. I believe it is the first time someone obtained an order based on a story in a tabloid,” the lawyer said. Charlie Sheen and Bret Rossi had actually been engaged, but the pair ended their romance.
