Charlie Sheen loses longtime publicist

Stan-RosenfieldImage Credit: Riccardo S. Savi/Getty ImagesCharlie Sheen’s longtime publicist Stan Rosenfield released a statement today saying he’s no longer representing the Two and A Half Men star. “I have worked with Charlie Sheen for a long time and care about him very much. However, at this time, I’m unable to work effectively as his publicist and have respectfully resigned.”

Rosenfield, who represents a number of high-profile actors such as George Clooney, Robert De Niro, Geoffrey Rush and Helen Mirren, has been largely MIA over the last few days while Sheen did a series of shocking radio interviews that culminated with two TV appearances on Good Morning America and Today. The well-respected publicist provided a front-line defense for Sheen whenever he made headlines, and often injected his sense of humor into the statements.

For example, when Sheen’s off-camera antics during a recent Las Vegas trip prompted a series of  “will he or won’t he show up to work” reports, Rosenfield released this statement: “I keep reading that Charlie Sheen did not show up for work today. I read those remarks two hours before his scheduled time of arrival. Charlie Sheen arrived at work today and is there as I send this. Memo to Chicken Little: The sky remains in place.”

    The rats are fleeing the sinking ship!

    • Agent Smith

      Maybe so, but in this case the rats are the smart ones.

      • B.Rich

        The rats are the smart ones in both cases.

      • Mark

        lol B. Rich

  • Pete

    Saying on his way out “I can’t do any more damage here!” ? ;-)

    When one high-profile client is going in front of a every camera or microphone he can badmouthing everyone from his co-workers to his bosses to his fans and the other one just got a Newsweek cover which praised him for using his fame for good for the people of Sudan, I can see why you’d drop the former.

    • D

      Seriously. His other clients are high profile class acts!

  • drat

    This also kills my theory that he’s pulling some Joaquin Phoenix stunt…

  • Leehung

    All I have to say about this is….Lindsay Lohan must be sooo happy!!!!

  • JDuro

    I believe this is the same guy Charlie keeps referring to refure those who are calling him anti-semitic. I guess Mr. Rosenfield is not to happy to be used in that very token-ish kind of way. Too Sad.

    • JDuro

      ^*refute

  • James

    I guess a guy whose job is bascially to lie for his client and clean up his messes can’t take this guy’ crap. It must be serious.

  • bb

    Hey Charlie. 3rd time is the charm, apparently the TMZ interview today was the nail in the coffin for Stan Rosenfield. Can we say over exposure or what !!!

    • bb

      PS… Someone from child protection should check up on the kids as well. All is not good for the little ones.

  • daviddavid

    BRING BACK JEFF BALLARD!!!

  • Topper

    This is just getting better by the minute. What’s next?

  • Ap

    So he did have a publicist!

    • D

      It doesn’t help when you decide to “go rogue”.

  • John

    You know he seems like a douche but the guy is right that if he comes in hits his mark and makes ratings, why does anyone care? Don’t say it is because they are concerned for Charlie Sheen. The only thing I can figure is they can’t insure him.

    • Jennifer

      I think you’ve hit the nail on the head – Sheen must be pretty much unisurable by now.

    • Rolo Tomasi

      I’m pretty sure you can’t publicly threaten your boss with violence either and think everything would be ok

    • Huh

      I wondered about his insurability, too. He presents himself as a functional drug user; but I doubt this matters much to insurers attempting to gauge the odds of your completing a project. An insurer probably looks at serious drug use as being on par with illnesses like cancer for the purposes of determining if you’re a good risk to insure. Thought it was the practice in Hollywood and for high-level corporate execs to try to cover up illness for insurance purposes; not broadcast it in the media.

    • Diane

      I also wonder if they think he can hit his mark now-or if he’s so far gone they have no idea what’s going to come out of his mouth while taping

  • Redvector

    I wouldn’t be surprised if his agent is the next to jump off the crazy train.

  • K

    Charlie Sheen going everywhere saying these crazy things only makes me wonder what kind of crazy stuff he had been saying at work before all this blew up in public. Especially after he dismissed missing practice, like it’s not worth his time. He is proving what a lot of people believe about Hollywood actors – that they are all selfish, egotistical, entitled A-Holes.

    • BG 17

      Rarely do they air it in public as Charlie Sheen has been lately. I just used ‘Charlie Sheen’ and ‘has been’ in the same sentence – maybe not for the last time?

  • TVDIVA

    His publicist now. His agent will follow when the Two and A Half Men money disappears.
