Drug and alcohol use have marred Sheen’s personal and professional life in recent years. He was kicked off CBS’ “Two and a Half Men” in 2011 after an explosive meltdown that included calling the show’s producer “a contaminated little maggot.”

His escapades have also included the revelation that he spent more than $50,000 as a client of “Hollywood Madam” Heidi Fleiss’ prostitution ring.

“Two and a Half Men” debuted in 2003 and starred Sheen as womanizing bachelor CharlieHarper. It made Sheen one of TV’s highest-paid actors and at its peak was TV’s most-watched sitcom.
