Addict or Bipolar? Examining the 'Passion' of Charlie Sheen
Charlie Sheen's public meltdown–media blitz continues, with riveting interviews aired on morning shows on NBC and ABC; a volatile, rambling conversation streamed on TMZ.com; and a more restrained appearance on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight.
Also on Monday, Feb. 28: Sheen threatened legal action against his employers, Warner Bros. (which, like TIME, is a unit of Time Warner) and CBS, which on Feb. 25 canceled the production of Sheen's sitcom Two and a Half Men; his longtime manager, Stan Rosenfield, resigned; and the embattled actor dropped gems like, "Sorry my life is so much more bitchin' than yours. I planned it that way," and "I am on a drug. It's called Charlie Sheen. It's not available because if you try it once, you will die. Your face will melt off, and your children will weep over your exploded body."
