Wild about Charlie – Is Charlie Sheen Bisexual?


twoandahalfmen-tvIt wasn’t long after Charlie Sheen came out about his HIV status that the next question came up. Is he bisexual?

The speculation is not new, however. Rumors about Sheen’s bisexuality came up during his carousing days when he showed up drunk at the “Hot Shots: Part Deux” press conference that I personally attended in 1993. He was also doing “The Three Musketeers” that year, and he said, “I’ve played a lot of gay roles, come on all the homo-erotic stuff in the military movies (“Platoon,” “Navy Seals”) and sports (“Eight Men Out,” “Major League”) and of course “Young Guns.” But then, the Musketeers, of course, who wouldn’t want to have sex with Chris O’Donnell and Keifer Sutherland?”

Sheen is most recently known for leaving the show that was created for him, “Two and a Half Men.” Ironically, when he left, his daughter became one of the characters introduced to the show, and her character was bisexual.

Sheen is known for his liaisons with women, maybe hundreds of them. Porn actress Ginger Lynn and others who are bisexual have been involved with Charlie and his former wife, Brooke Mueller, has a long bisexual history that was revealed in their divorce.

“He never asked me, but he said to my girls, ‘Do you have any guys that you could call right now?’ I have no idea if he wanted them for himself, or if he wanted to watch them have sex with the other girls or with his wife or what,” Gristina says.

Also, The National Enquirer states rather flatly that Sheen is “secretly bisexual,” saying he “regularly spent thousands of dollars to sleep with transsexual hookers who he would hire and have them service him at his Mulholland Estate mansion.”

Then, there are reports on RadarOnline.com of a sex tape filmed in Las Vegas four years ago that shows Sheen “smoking a crack pipe before engaging gay oral sex.”

Charlie says that he paid off a lot of people to keep his secrets, especially his HIV status. Matt Lauer asked Charlie if he knew how he contracted the virus, and gave him every opportunity to ‘fess up to male-male relationships or intravenous drug use. Charlie didn’t say anything.

But, now there are people who say Charlie had a particular hankering for “transvestites”. According to reports, he liked seeing a guy dressed as a woman, and having sex with them. Page Six in New York quoted a former madam, Anna Gristina, as saying that the actor was “fond” of pre-op transsexuals. She says Charlie is still keeping a lot of secrets.

A lawyer representing Sheen says, “the alleged video that you purportedly reviewed has nothing to do with the above referenced lawsuit which was filed and subsequently dismissed more than five years ago. Though there was video evidence involved in the aforementioned case, that video evidence did not come close to portraying what you have described.”

Then, another A-List superstar supposedly had sex with Charlie and taped themselves play-wrestling with each other and having unprotected gay sex. Sheen’s lawyers also deny that account.

A celebrity crisis manager named Wendy Feldman is quoted as saying that Sheen knew about his HIV-positive status about a decade ago. She also said he was bisexual.

Whether he is or not, Charlie has his hands full combating rumors about his sexuality as.
