Controversial Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen has given his first television interview to ABC News' Andrea Canning. It is set to air as a special one-hour edition of 20/20 Tuesday, March 1 at 10 p.m. (ET).

Sheen, 45, will discuss controversial rants and public feud with Men co-creator Chuck Lorre, which resulted in the hit show's suspension earlier this week, according to ABC News.
Portions of the interview also will air on Good Morning America on Monday and Tuesday, and throughout ABC News platforms.
In several interviews, Sheen has called Lorre a "turd" and a "clown."
He was criticized by the Anti-Defamation League for referring to Lorre by his birth name Chaim Levine.
"So you're telling me, anytime someone calls me Carlos Estevez, I can claim they are anti-Latino?" Sheen asked ABC's Canning, referring to his own birth name.
He previously told Canning that he is 100 percent clean and plans to show up for work next week despite CBS's scrapping this season's production.
