Charlie Sheen Is Really Butthurt Rihanna Wouldn't Say Hi To His Fiancée
You know that guy gets turned down by a gal and then proceeds to launch into a tirade about how awful she is and how he'd rather kill himself than ever have to talk to her again—even though he was interested just 5 seconds ago? His name is Charlie Sheen.
Sheen was out celebrating his fiancée's birthday at Giorgio Baldi restaurant in Santa Monica on Wednesday night, when he heard that Rihanna was in the house. Sheen sent Rihanna a message asking if she wouldn't mind saying hello to his fiancée Scottine Sheen who is a huge fan. Rihanna sent back a message saying that it wasn't a good night because there were too many paps outside. Maybe the timing was bad or maybe it was a brush-off and she didn't care to meet Sheen or be seen with him (it hasn't helped some careers).
But whatever the reason, Sheen took it as the opportunity to write a long rant on Twitter, calling Rihanna the "Village Idiot," saying he couldn't pick her out of line-up, joking that meeting her for 84 seconds would be like chugging Draino and lecturing her on the importance of "good will and common courtesy." Scottine retweeted his comments:
I took my gal out to dinner
last night with her best
friends for her Bday.
we heard Rihanna was present as well.
I sent a request over to her table to introduce my fiancé
Scotty to her, as she is a
huge fan. (personally I couldn't pick her out of a line-up at gunpoint)
well, the word we received back was that there were too
many paps outside and it just wasn't possible at this time.
At this time? AT THIS TIME??
lemme guess, we're to reschedule another random
11 million to 1 encounter
with her some other night...?
no biggie for me; it would have been 84 interminable seconds of chugging Draino and
"please kill me now"
that I'd never get back.
My Gal, however,
was NOT OK with it.
Nice impression you
left behind, Bday or not.
Sorry we're not KOOL enough
to warrant a blessing from
(or in this case
the Village idiot)
you see THIS is the reason
that I ALWAYS take the time.
THIS is why I'm in this thing
31 awesome years.
Good will and
common courtesy, carefully
established over time to exist radically in concert
with a code of gratitude!
I guess "Talk That Talk"
was just a big ol lie from
a big ol liar.
oh and Riahnna,
Halloween isn't for a while.
but good on you for testing out your costume in public.
it's close; a more muted pink might be the answer,
See ya on the way down,
(we always do)
it was a pleasure NOT
clearly we have NOTHING
in common when it comes
to respect for those who've
gone before you.
I'm guessing you needed those precious 84 seconds
to situate that bad wig
before you left the restaurant.
Here's a tip from a real vet
of this terrain;
If ya don't wanna get bothered
DONT LEAVE YOUR HOUSE!
and if this "Prison of Fame"
is soooooooo unnerving and
difficult, then QUIT, junior!
