Just when you think Hollyweird can’t get any weirder Charlie Sheen took strange behavior and court paper revelation to the next level. Sheen just recently escaped prison time for an incident that occurred in Aspen in which he was accused of assaulting his wife Brooke Mueller. Other than rumored women, drinking and parties at the Playboy mansion what could have sparked this marital confrontation?
Do you remember that song by Train called “Drops of Jupiter” that played on the radio approximately 500-billion times in 2001-02? Yeah of course you do, it’s one of the most infectious tracks in the last 20-years of pop music. Well according to TMZ who obtained papers filed by Sheen it was this can’t-get-it-out-of-your-brain song that ignited the war of words between himself and Mueller that escalated to the infamous physical fireworks!
The story goes that Sheen and his daughter shared an affinity for “Drops of Jupiter” and in turn astronomy in general. Following up on this connection Sheen, “bought two tracking telescopes; one for his daughter and one for him so they could both look at the same point in the universe at the same time, as a way of staying connected.” Well that seems nice enough but Sheen stated that Mueller was jealous of the fact that he shared an intimate song with his daughter but did not have a tune that was representative of the love bond between husband and wife. I think I had this same “our song” problem with a girlfriend back in 6th grade.
This displeasure with a lack of an official couple song turned into a war of words that escalated into a slapfest between the two according to the papers released by the Aspen Police Department.
Well Brooke, I sure hope you still don’t hold a grudge and just to show a little support for your lack of an “our song” I would like to provide the following suggestions so that you can feel a special bond with Sheen even while he’s getting his post freedom groove on at Hef’s place.
Brooke and Sheen’s “Our Song” Suggestions:
“Love on Command” – Unknown Hinson:
“Good Hearted Woman” – The Highwaymen:
“Better Off Without a Wife” – Tom Waits:
Good Time Charlie’s Got The Blues: – Dwight Yoakam:
“Some gotta win some gotta lose. Good time Charlie’s got the blues.”
I am reminded of that scene from The Big Lebowski where The Dude played by Jeff Bridges begs a taxi driver not to play The Eagles. Well for Charlie and Brooke they weren’t able to take it easy and Sheen took wacky Hollywood craziness to the limit one more time. Train should get themselves a lawyer, I mean “Drops of Jupiter” has to break some kind of law right?
