There’s never a moment of quiet when it comes to Charlie Sheen.
The admittedly good actor and Hollywood bad boy is a suspect in an ongoing criminal investigation involving alleged threats he made, according to the Los Angeles Police Department, which released no further details about the case, CNN reported Thursday.
The investigation is the latest in a string of difficulties for the former sitcom star. Scottine Ross, his former fiancée, filed a lawsuit in December accusing him of assault, battery, false imprisonment and failure to disclose to her that he was HIV-positive.
The lawsuit alleges that Sheen locked Ross in the bathroom, dragged her by the arms, placed her in a chokehold and pointed an unloaded gun at her.
Ross, an adult film actress known as Brett Rossi, and Sheen were in a relationship from November 2013 to October 2014, according to the suit.
Sheen’s attorney denied the allegations, saying Ross is trying to extort money from the former “Two and Half Men” star.
In November, when Sheen disclosed he was HIV positive on the “Today” show, he said he informed his status to all his sexual partners and that he wouldn’t pay to settle claims from anyone who said he exposed them to the virus.
He also apparently is having money problems. The Associated Press reports he recently requested that child support payments to his four children with ex-wives Denise Richards and Brooke Mueller be reduced, citing changed financial circumstances.
In an interview in the May issue of Cosmopolitan, Scarlett Johansson said she was fortunate and proud to be an actress making as much money as many of her male peers, but didn’t want to elaborate on the topic on a personal level.
On a further feminist note, the bombshell also said “it’s nuts” regarding possible budget cuts to Planned Parenthood and the availability of women’s health initiatives, mentioning that she herself has taken advantage of the program’s varied services.
