Sheen was fired from “Two and a Half Men” in 2011 after a public meltdown that had the actor lashing out at the show’s creator.

Among the more notorious points of his career, Sheen entered drug rehab twice and lived with three women.

Sheen has been married multiple times to women including Brooke Mueller and Denise Richards and had children with each.

His salary on “Two and a Half Men” was one of the highest on TV at the time, at $1.25 million per episode in 2010.
