Charlie Sheen Latest: He's Jewish, Going to Haiti

ROBYN BECK/AFP/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Charlie Sheen has revealed that he's partly Jewish.

The actor, who has been accused of anti-Semitic remarks aimed at Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre, told an interviewer that he is Jewish on his mother's side of the family.

"Here's where it gets confusing – we don't know who her father is … but she is, in fact, Jewish," Sheen told Access Hollywood Live in a phone interview.

Sheen also said he plans to travel to Haiti next week with Sean Penn.

Charlie Sheen Tells ABC He's Clean, Will Come to Work Anyway

Photo Courtesy - Jeff Vespa/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Charlie Sheen's TV show Two and a Half Men may have shut down production, but that evidently won't stop the actor for attempting to do his job. In a series of text messages sent Friday, Sheen told ABC's Good Morning America that he's "100 percent clean" and plans to show up for work anyway.  Sheen also said that he is in talks with HBO to start his own show called Sheen's Corner, which RadarOnline.com reports would earn him $5 million per episode.

Sheen's claims are news to HBO -- the network told the Hollywood Reporter that they are not, in fact, in talks with the actor about a series.  Sheen had gone into detail about Sheen's Corner to Radar Online, claiming it was a "10-show guarantee," and saying it would be "epic, all types of guests and we would focus on the truth and the absurd!"

In the GMA texts, the embattled actor also continued his war of words with Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre, calling him a "clown" and a "loser."  Sheen gave a scathing and seemingly anti-semitic rant against Lorre on Thursday during a radio interview.  He also told TMZ that he "violently hates" Lorre.

Sheen Releases Explosive Letter Responding to Show Cancellation

Photo Courtesy - ROBYN BECK/AFP/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Following a disastrous Thursday radio interview that resulted in the further suspension of his TV show, Charlie Sheen released an open letter berating the show's creator with foul language and insults.

CBS announced late Thursday it has ended production of the hit comedy Two and a Half Men for the season. 

The move came after the show's star Charlie Sheen's took to the air waves to slam Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre in a rambling, erratic interview on the syndicated radio show The Alex Jones Show.

"Based on the totality of Charlie Sheen's statements, conduct and condition, CBS and Warner Bros. Television have decided to discontinue production of Two and a Half Men for the remainder of the season," CBS Entertainment and Warner Bros. Television said in a statement. The show has been in hiatus since January, when Sheen began rehab following erratic behavior.

Following the CBS announcement, Sheen addressed the issue in an open letter obtained by TMZ.com.

"What does this say about [Lorre] after he tried to use his words to judge and attempt to degrade me. I gracefully ignored this folly for 177 shows," Sheen writes. "I fire back once and this contaminated little maggot can't handle my power and can't handle the truth.

"I wish him nothing but pain in his silly travels especially if they wind up in my octagon. Clearly I have defeated this earthworm with my words -- imagine what I would have done with my fire breathing fists. I urge all my beautiful and loyal fans who embraced this show for almost a decade to walk with me side-by-side as we march up the steps of justice to right this unconscionable wrong."

Later, Sheen apparently challenged Lorrie to a fight. According to the website TMZ, Sheen said, "if he wins, then he can leave MY show." Sheen told TMZ, " I violently hate [Lorre]. He's a stupid, stupid little man and a p***y punk that I'd never want to be like."

Sheen told TMZ all wants to do is bring his family together. "That piece of s**t [Lorre] took money out of my pocket, my family's pocket and most importantly, my second family-my crew's pocket."

Charlie Sheen Attacks 'Two and a Half Men' Creator in Radio Rant

Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Charlie Sheen really likes calling into radio shows. The troubled TV star took to the airwaves once again, this time calling into syndicated radio show The Alex Jones Show to slam Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre in a rambling, erratic interview.

Sheen ripped into Lorre, saying that he must have embarrassed him "in front of his children and the world by healing at a pace that his un-evolved mind cannot process." But Sheen didn't stop there went on to call Lorre a "turd" and a "clown" and later used an anti-Semitic term while referring to Lorre's name. Sheen said he is eager to get back to work but has now seemingly escalated a very public battle with the producers the hit comedy.

Sheen was even more outrageous than in his recent series of radio interviews since announcing he was entering rehab, claiming he is "100 percent" clean.

"Here is your first pee test," he said to Alex Jones, the "next one goes in your mouth. No, you wont get high."

In the live interview Sheen also said he has no time for Alcoholic's Anonymous, saying, "I am special and I will never be one of you" and referred to the group as a "bootleg cult" with a success rate of five percent. He went on to say, "I have a disease? bulls**t! I cured it ... with my mind."

The interview comes as the actor left Los Angeles to spend some time in the Bahamas with his ex-wife, Brooke Mueller and his new girlfriend. In the interview Sheen says Mueller left the vacation early and wished her well in her travels, sarcastically adding that his ex-wife is "going to need it, badly."

Earlier this week Sheen's father, actor Martin Sheen, broke his silence about his troubled son.

"With prayer, we lift him up and we ask for everyone who cares about him to lift him up," Martin Sheen said Tuesday night at a movie premiere in London.

It was the first time Sheen's family has spoken publicly since the Two and a Half Men star was hospitalized for stomach pains after a night of heavy partying last month.

CBS Entertainment and Warner Bros. Television responded to Sheen's rant later Thursday in a joint statement.

"Based on the totality of Charlie Sheen's statements, conduct and condition, CBS and Warner Bros. Television have decided to discontinue production of Two and a Half Men for the remainder of the season."
