Charlie Sheen, In Touch Magazine, Cover


To us, the biggest scandal of the day ain't In Touch Weekly's allegations, it's Charlie Sheen's mustache maneuver. So we decided to get to the bottom of it and put in a call to Team Sheen.

In case you missed it, the hysterically fake-'stached Sheen, accessorized with shades, hoodie and cigarette, is plastered on the cover of the new issue along with the accusation: "Caught Cheating!"

But according to publicist Stan Rosenfield, the (former?) Two and Half Men star wasn't on some covert booty call when he made like a poor man's Tom Selleck. Instead, Rosenfield insists, Sheen was just having fun with the paparazzi as he paid a visit to a friend who needed a hand.

"The woman in question is the sister of one of Sheen's campmates, and Sheen was only responding to a 12th-step call," says Rosenfield. "Since Sheen knew he was being followed and how this would look, he wore the mustache in a tongue-in-cheek disguise gesture."

So there you go. Just one question: Do you believe it?
