You may have heard about the uneasy bond forged between fallen stars and chronic drug/people abusers Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan; if not, we applaud you for not paying attention to either of them. Sometimes, we envy you.
Anyway, Sheen’s allegedly loaned Lohan large sums of money for her unpaid taxes and voracious, uncontrollable need to buy all the Birkin bags. Apparently he’s now helping her buy clothes.
Turns out, Lohan’s appearance at last week’s amfAR gala was bankrolled in part by her Scary Movie 5 costar Sheen, who also called celebrity stylist Phillip Bloch to request Bloch’s services himself.
Per Us Weekly:
On Wednesday, Feb. 6, mere hours before amfAR’s annual New York Gala to kick off Fashion Week, the former Two and a Half Men star put in a call to celebrity stylist Phillip Bloch to ask that he dress Lohan for the glitzy event. He even offered to “go halfsies” with the Liz & Dick actress to pay for the gown.
“Never in a business like this do you see a celebrity pay for another celebrity,” Bloch tells Us Weekly of Sheen, noting that the request came from the actor himself and not from an assistant.
“He’s very considerate.”
We crossed out that last part because we hate to live in a world where Charlie Sheen’s “antics” get any good press.
Anyway. We’d love to make a joke about how Sheen’s involvement sure explained Lohan’s disheveled appearance at the amfAR gala (Nelson laugh!), but this whole thing is just pretty sad. So, we guess this is another sad piece of data to add to the gigantic pile that is sad stuff about Lindsay Lohan’s current situation.
