Actor Charlie Sheen is being investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department for threatening to kill his ex-fiancée. Variety noted that the LAPD confirmed on Wednesday that the former Two and a Half Men star is being investigated for allegedly saying on tape that he would kill or pay $20,000 to have his ex murdered. In the alleged recording, a man thought to be Sheen apparently lied to his partner about having HIV and when the woman questioned him about why he didn’t tell her, the man answered, “Because it’s none of your f***ing business.” The man’s voice can also be heard saying, “This piece of sh*t needs to be f***ing buried. I’d rather spend 20 grand to have her head kicked in.” While authorities would not confirm the alleged victim’s identity, several media outlets have reported that it is Scottine Ross a.k.a. Brett Rossi, who was engaged to Sheen in 2014. She was granted a temporary restraining order against the 50-year-old just last week. Sheen publicly revealed in November that he is HIV-positive.
