Charlie Sheen is involved in another anti-Semitic scandal.
After he was criticized last week by the Anti-Defamation League for remarks he made regarding Chuck Lorre, his ex-wife Brooke Mueller is now claiming (in a sworn statement filed Tuesday in Los Angeles court) that Sheen, 45, once referred to his manager, Mark Burg, as a “stoopid Jew pig” in a text message on his phone.
Sheen tells People, “I would never, ever say that about my dear friend Mark. [Mueller] is trying to create. I caught her on my phone a year ago texting. She was trying to cause discord among my immediate family. I caught her red-handed and she confessed.”
TMZ cites sources saying that Mueller didn’t send any texts from Sheen’s phone that day. But Sheen tells People that his two live-in girlfriends – whom he calls the “goddesses” – witnessed Mueller with his phone that day.
Burg also dismisses the claims, telling People: “Charlie Sheen’s ex-publicist, Stan Rosenfield, is Jewish. Charlie Sheen’s entertainment attorney, Jake Bloom, is Jewish. Charlie Sheen’s litigation attorney, Marty Singer, is Jewish. Charlie Sheen’s divorce attorney, Mark Gross, is Jewish. I’ve known [Charlie Sheen] for 13 years. I don’t believe that he actually sent that text.”
