If there's one thing we've learned about Charlie Sheen, it's that he does everything big -- especially his mistakes! So it's fitting that Sheen, 46, accidentally sent his personal phone number out over the Internet last Wednesday, resulting in a flurry of calls that literally broke his cell phone.
The former Two and a Half Men star was trying to send his number to Justin Bieber in a direct message over Twitter, but he ended up tweeting his number out to his 5.5 million followers instead.
Page Six reports that Sheen promptly deleted the tweet, but the damage had been done. Sheen was dining in a fancy Las Vegas restaurant with seven friends when, according to a source, his phone "immediately went into meltdown."
"It was ringing wildly, and he got 1,800 text messages in minutes," says the witness.
At first, Sheen made a joke of the gaffe, greeting callers by saying things like "Ray's Pizza" and "Winning." But when the calls and texts didn't stop, his phone completely broke down.
"Charlie was like, 'I guess I need a new phone,'" the source says.
Sheen's rep tells Page Six that he did indeed get a new phone number, if not an entirely new phone. Which leaves only one question: Why was Charlie Sheen telling Justin Bieber to call him in the first place? (And wouldn't it be ironic if he wanted Twitter lessons?)
