Charlie Sheen Officially Goddess-Less

ABC/Richard Cartwright(LOS ANGELES) -- Charlie's angels have split.

Charlie Sheen's last remaining "goddess," Natalie Kenly, reportedly moved out of the down-and-out sitcom star's Beverly Hills home a week ago. The two were last seen together celebrating Kenly's 25th birthday at the W Hotel in Los Angeles June 2.

Their breakup wasn't pretty. Sheen is demanding Kenly return the Mercedes he bought her while they were together, according to TMZ.com.

Sheen hasn't had a lot of luck with the ladies of late. His porn-star girlfriend, Bree Olson, broke up with him in April via text message.

He hasn't fared much better in his professional pursuits. CBS and Warner Bros. announced last month that Ashton Kutcher would replace Sheen on the hit comedy Two and a Half Men.

Reports swirled earlier this month that Sheen was negotiating a "big offer" for a new TV series, but those have since petered out.

The actor, 45, has been mostly MIA since his "Violent Torpedo of Truth" tour ended in May.

Billy the Kid Image Fetches $2.3 Million at Denver Auction

Hulton Archive/Getty Images(DENVER) -- One of the last surviving images of Billy the Kid fetched more than $2 million at an auction in Denver this weekend.

The unnamed winning bidder forked over $2.3 million to take home the tintype image of the 19th century bandit, whose real name was William Henry McCarty.

Auction organizers originally estimated the picture would bring in about $300,000 to $400,000.

The photo shows Billy the Kid wearing a black hat and holding a Winchester rifle with a holstered Colt pistol on his hip.  The snapshot is believed to have been taken in Fort Sumner, New Mexico during 1879 or 1880 -- before he began his gunslinging career in which he killed anywhere from eight to 22 people, according to legend.

It is reportedly the only authenticated, surviving image of the outlaw.

Johnny Knoxville On Ryan Dunn: 'I Lost My Brother'

J. Strauss/FilmMagic(NEW YORK) -- Over the weekend, Johnny Knoxville wrote a blog entry dedicated to his late Jackass co-star Ryan Dunn, who died in a car crash last week.

Knoxville said he wrote the entry because it was too difficult for him to properly express his feelings on Dunn at his memorial service.

Knoxville praises Dunn as a loving and loyal man with a contagious spirit.  His post ends by stating, "I'm just very sad because I lost my brother and my world got about 134-percent less funny.  I don't know what else to say right now, so I will close with I love you, Ryan.  I have a lot of emotions swirling, but I want you to know I love you so very much."

Dunn and passenger Zachary Hartwell died in the car crash in Pennsylvania last Monday morning.  Police say Dunn's blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit.

Jerry Lewis Released from Australian Hospital

Ethan Miller/Getty Images(SYDNEY) -- Comedian Jerry Lewis was released from an Australian hospital on Saturday after suffering from an apparent bout with exhaustion.

The showbiz legend was forced to cancel a sold-out benefit show in Sydney, Australia on Friday when he fell ill and was taken to a hospital.  The 85-year-old actor and longtime advocate for muscular dystrophy research had a problem getting out of his vehicle at the event and medical attention was required.

Stephen Cesarano, sales manager of the Aussie venue, Doltone House, told ABC News affiliate KABC-TV in Los Angeles, "Unfortunately, a combination of a very long trip from Las Vegas, as well as a very busy schedule, and of course when Jerry lands he goes at it 110 percent, led to him feeling very exhausted."

Cesarano claimed it was just the third show in 80 years that Lewis has canceled.  Many audience members refused refunds and instead chose to donate the funds to the Muscular Dystrophy Foundation of Australia.
