Charlie Sheen Gave Away All His "Scary Movie 5" Money
We heard yesterday that CHARLIE SHEEN gave LINDSAY LOHAN $100,000 to pay off some of her IRS debt. That money came out of Charlie's paycheck from "Scary Movie 5".
--Charlie was paid $250,000 to do a single scene with Lindsay. And apparently, he didn't keep ANY of that money. The rest of it went to three charities, chosen by people involved in the movie, including the director and one of the producers.
"Two and a Half Men" Star Angus T. Jones Calls the Show "Filth" and Asks People to Stop Watching It
"Two and a Half Men" has another problem on its hands. Just two years after CHARLIE SHEEN'S infamous meltdown . . . another one of the show's stars has RIPPED the show, and apparently wants out.
--19-year-old ANGUS T. JONES recently gave a long video interview to a religious website called "Forerunner Chronicles" . . . and in the middle of it, he expressed moral objections to the show, and suggested that people stop watching it.
--And he was totally serious.
--Angus said, quote, "Jake from 'Two and a Half Men' means nothing . . . he's a non-existent character. If you watch 'Two and a Half Men', please stop watching 'Two and a Half Men'. I'm on 'Two and a Half Men' and I don't want to be on it.
--"Please stop watching it and filling your head with filth. People say it's just entertainment. Do some research on the effects of television and your brain, and I promise you, you'll have a decision to make when it comes to television . . .
--"Especially with what you watch."
--He also referred to the show as being part of the "plan" of the "enemy," which we assume to be Satan. He said, quote, "If I'm doing any harm, I don't want to be here. I don't want to be contributing to the enemy's plan.
--"You cannot be a true God-fearing person and be on a television show like that. I know I can't. I'm not OK with what I'm learning, what the Bible says and being on that television show."

LINDSAY LOHAN'S "big" comeback wasn't as big as she'd hoped. "Liz & Dick" attracted 3.5 million viewers Sunday night.

--He has not revealed his identity.
--He claims he met Clash on a gay chat line . . . where Clash went by the name "Craig" and claimed he was only 30. They met up again in 2003 and 2004, and eventually, the accuser figured out who Clash really was.

Halle Berry's Baby-Daddy Now Has a Restraining Order Against Her Fiance
Even though he's the one who was arrested, GABRIEL AUBRY got a restraining order against OLIVIER MARTINEZ over their brawl in front of HALLE BERRY'S house on Thanksgiving Day. Aubry says Olivier started it all. He also shared with the court some grotesque photos of the beating Olivier dropped on him.
--Gabriel says Olivier started beating on him and cussing him out, blaming him for the custody battle over Nahla that cost them $3 million.
--As you may recall, it was Gabriel who was arrested on Thanksgiving Day. And there's now word that he could be deported to his native country of Canada if he's convicted.
--One last note: Child Protective Services will formally investigate the brawl, since 4-year-old Nahla was present. Halle did take her away immediately when the chaos erupted, but still, there are questions about how healthy the overall environment is.
