Charlie Sheen has been airing his dirty laundry during his comedy tour and has now opened up about the details surrounding the mysterious shooting incident with former girlfriend Kelly Preston.
Charlie Sheen has been surrounded by rumors that he shot his ex-fiance Kelly Preston back in 1990, but the actor has revealed that she actually shot herself.
During his “My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not An Option” comedy show in Vancouver, Canada, Sheen stated, “I was downstairs early in the morning making coffee and I thought she was still asleep upstairs,” he said. “And I heard a f**king gunshot go off. I thought, ‘She did it, she finally f**king did it. She killed herself and they’re going to f**king blame me.’
“So I abandoned the coffee, because a gunshot in the morning will wake you up better than a nice cup of coffee,” he jokingly told the crowd.
“I come around the corner and there’s naked Kelly Preston at the top of the stairs, holding her wrist, staring at me, covered in blood, and I thought, ‘that’s pretty f**king hot,'” he explained, before quickly adding, “I didn’t. I didn’t.”
Sheen managed to stop the bleeding and asked Kelly what had happened.
“She explained to me when she lifted my pants off the scale in the bathroom”¦the tiny revolver I used to carry”¦it fell out of the back jeans pocket and hit the floor and shot a bullet right between her legs,” he explained. “So she got hit with shrapnel from the toilet bowl.”
The former “Two and a Half Men” star added,”I didn’t know whether to ring 911 or 411. But for years, people always talked about the time I tried to kill Kelly Preston”.
Sheen also told of the strange experience on “The Howard Stern Show”, calling the incident, “The dumbest thing I’ve ever done even though I wasn’t in the room”.
Kelly Preston and Charlie Sheen called off their engagement and split shortly after the incident. A year after the split, the actress married actor John Travolta.
