A man can only take so much. Particularly when that man is Charlie Sheen's publicist.
Stan Rosenfield, the ever put-upon flack responsible for gifting the world with such well-intentioned if wholly unbelieved doozies as blaming Sheen's hooker-assisted hospitalization on "an allergic reaction to some medication," calling his rehab a "preventative measure" and otherwise assuring the public that Chuck Sheen is always A-OK has resigned.
Guess the Sheen-anigans finally got to him. So, did he go out in a blaze of glory? Spill all of Charlie's dirty secrets? (Or whatever's left of them?)
Nah, he's too much of a pro for that.
"I have worked with Charlie Sheen for a long time and I care about him very much," Rosenfield announced today (and not long after Sheen blasted the PR man for making excuses for his behavior—aka doing his job).
"However, at this time, I'm unable to work effectively as his publicist and have respectfully resigned."
Our only question for Stan now: what took you so long?
Incidentally, Rosenfield was working with Sheen right up until the bitter end, this morning issuing a pair of denials about his now-former client.
"Somebody I've never heard of by the name of Ian Fortey has sent out an email under my company's name that Charlie Sheen has retired," he told E! News. "THAT IS A HOAX.
"It was reported by X17 that Charlie Sheen is in rehab. This is NOT true."
This, however, is.
