Charlie Sheen Problems: the actor is pissy that a stripper joint called Cheetahs bequeathed his name upon their VIP room, in which guests can eat sushi off nearly-naked women for $250 a pop. An outraged Sheen has threatened to sue the New York City “gentleman’s club” for — get this — damaging his reputation by bedecking the VIP room with grinning pictures of his face. Although the Charlie Sheen room has been party central for a year, Sheen’s lawyers just recently fired off a cease-and-desist letter claiming they used his name without his permission. The club’s owners relented, but not without rolling their eyes. Asked the owner, “How could sushi damage Charlie Sheen’s reputation?” Truer words have never been spoken. [NY Post]
