The latest word from Camp Charlie Sheen: Everything is just fine. No, really.
In the wake of a "close friend" of the demon-battling, impulse-driven "Two and a Half Men" star predicting to RadarOnline that he "is going to die this week," his inner circle, the same ones who claimed an "adverse allergic reaction to some medication" led to his seemingly substance- and porn star-triggered hotel meltdown last week, insist his only addiction is football. Bing: Charlie Sheen's troubles
Radar contends that Charlie embarked on another wild bender after winging home to Los Angeles following his brief hospitalization in New York.
"He is completely out of control," maintains a source, adding that it's been a "non-stop party" fueled by his various bad habits since he returned. "No one can get through to him."

Not so, insists Sheen's manager, who made a beeline for his house on Sunday after reading the alarming report.
His conclusion, e-mailed to Charlie's rep, who then forwarded it to media outlets: The dire claims are "complete bull---- fabricated lies!!!"
When he arrived, "Charlie was alone watching Brett Favre getting beat up by New England," picture-paints the handler. "He looked at me like I was nuts for coming into his house. 'Dude, you could have knocked,' he said.
Not enough of a laid-back scene for you? The manager adds to TMZ that Sheen was eating a turkey sandwich, although we hear he can get really nuts while riding a tryptophan high.
"He looked as normal as he's looked in a long time," he states, which presumably means no pay-for-company blondes were locked in his bathroom and threatening to sue.
Sheen also planned on handing out Halloween candy to neighborhood trick-or-treaters, likely giving a good old-fashioned scare to the little ones and their parents.
Meanwhile, Sheen's supposedly missing-watch-induced rampage won't keep viewers from enjoying his CBS sitcom, for which he earns nearly $2 million per episode, thus proving that if there is a God, He or She has a sense of humor, unlike "Two and a Half Men."
"Charlie is fine and will be at work on Tuesday," promises his manager (and somewhere, Jon Cryer sighs in relief, confident that he has avoided unemployment for another week).As for how Sheen's network overlords are reacting to his troubles, "They're quietly thrilled," a source tells the New York Post. "They think it will open up the show to a whole new segment of young viewers, the 17-to-23 crowd. They feel like it's millions in free publicity."
But his actor-dad, Martin, is apparently less tickled by the turn of events. You'll recall that during Charlie's downward spiral in 1998, his father practiced some tough love by calling the cops and turning him in for violating his parole after a cocaine overdose.
"You have to separate him from that environment, from the people he's been around," a spy tells the Post, with another adding to Radar, "None of the people around him can ever convince him to go to rehab. Charlie will never listen to them. He feels like he's the star, and they only have jobs or make a lot of money because of him."http://tv.msn.com/tv/article.aspx?news=608771>1=28103
