Charlie Sheen Pays Lindsay Lohan’s Taxes for 2009, 2010

Earlier today, TMZ reported that Charlie Sheen sent Lindsay Lohan a $100,000 check out of which $93k was used on Lohan’s 2009 tax debt and $6k on her 2010 tax debt.

The news comes just one day after MTV’s interview with actor James Franco and his testament to Lohan’s struggle with publicity after having spent time with her during the filming of R.E.M.’s video for “Blue”.

“I think one of the reasons it’s so hard is when she gets in trouble, she gets all this attention and I’m sure she gets book offers,” Franco said, alluding to the temptation of greed and success at the expense of a celebrity’s freedom and privacy. “She goes to jail, and instead of feeling like ‘I really hit a low place,’ she’ll get a crazy offer for her jail memoir.”
