Is the party over for Charlie Sheen? Three months after showing off his dream house on 20/20, the actor has put his mansion on the market. The estate, which Sheen dubbed Sober Valley Ranch (modified from Silver Valley Ranch after he supposedly got clean), was once home to the actor and his "goddesses." Now that Sheen's out one goddess and unemployed, is the 45-year-old actor giving up his life of luxury? Is he making a fresh start? Or is he just broke?
There have been some rumors that Sheen is having money problems. TMZ reports that during the last season of Two and a Half Men, the star borrowed a cool $10 million from Warner Bros. The loan, plus interest, was deducted from Charlie's season 7 paychecks. At the time, he was the highest-paid actor in TV, with a base pay of $1.25 million per episode. Not the circumstances under which someone would normally need a loan! Whether it's going to child support, mortgage payments or something more unsavory, Sheen's money is definitely going somewhere -- and fast.
If you want to help the guy out by buying his home (which he paid ex-wife Brooke Mueller $1 million to obtain in the divorce), here are the details. The house is almost 8,000 square feet, with five bedrooms and seven bathrooms. (More bathrooms than bedrooms? Now that's luxury.) Naturally, it has a pool, a private screening room and a "professional outdoor kitchen" for entertaining. And it's in a gated community, so no need to worry about paparazzi bothering you during those outdoor-kitchen parties.
We're not sure what prompted Sheen to sell his house, since the actor has been uncharacteristically quiet lately. But we'll probably hear from him again soon: When a Twitter follower inquired recently about Sheen's media silence, Sheen responded that it was only "the calm before the storm." Now we're bracing ourselves for another round of Hurricane Charlie...
