    No, Charlie Sheen did not intend for this to be part of his legacy.

    In fact, upon hearing that Cheetahs Gentlemen's Club in New York City's Times Square had opened a "Charlie Sheen VIP Room" on its premises, the star got his attorney on the case, ASAP.

    But that didn't stop the club from planning a party so that the media could get a look at the "Art of Body Sushi" being served in the room named after the Anger Management star, he of last year's infamous sex-and-drugs-fueled meltdown.

    So, what does Sheen's camp have to say about that?

    "Charlie has nothing to do with this and it is unfortunate that these despicable parasites have not been exterminated," Sheen's rep, Larry Solters, exclusively tells E! News.

    Sam Zherka, president of Cheetahs' parent company, had encouraged Sheen not to "kill his own party," according to the invitation for tomorrow night's eat-and-greet.

    But it turns out the shindig will not be going down as intended. Sheen's attorney, Martin Singer, sent a cease-and-desist letter to the club and, according to him, they complied.

    "This matter has nothing to do with Sheen's reputation," he told the New York Post. "You can't use any celebrity name to promote a business without permission. They had no right to use his name."
