Charlie Sheen seems to be giving away money lately like it's candy. Maybe he will stop by our studio and make a huge donation. Either way, he's covering a huge chunk of the funeral costs for the paparazzo who died while covering the Justin Bieber story. Sheen is donating over $12,000 to the photographers family. 2013 may be the year of the new Sheen.

TMZ is reporting that Charlie is very good friends with a former photographer who was friends with Guerra. Sheen got word that the family was trying to raise money to cover the costs.

So Charlie, being Charlie, sprung into action and grabbed his checkbook. We contacted Sheen about the situation, and the actor gave us the following statement: "A tragic incident like this erases the line between the photographer and the subject. It's an unforgiving moment that begs us all to be human and work as one to prevent this in the future." He continues, "As parents, we are all not supposed to bury our children. My deepest condolences to the families involved."

For all the bad press Charlie gets, at least he's a nice guy. He donated money to Lindsay Lohan, and now he's helping pay for one families funeral. I think Charlie Sheen is a completely different person then he's been in the past.
