Sheen told “ET” today that he gave his “Scary Movie 5″ co-star an unspecified amount of money but says it was payment she was due from a project.
“I’m still waiting for a text to say ‘thank you,’” Sheen told “ET” with a laugh. “Anything, you know?”
Reports place the amount of Sheen’s handout as high as $100,000.
Sheen’s rep confirmed to ABCNews.com that Sheen gave Lohan money, though the rep would not say how much or what it was used for.
Sheen, no stranger to trouble, said he wished “the best” for Lohan, adding that she’s “a very good and decent young lady that is just going through a lot.”
He told “ET”: “She just needs a little bit of time…People need to give her time to get her s*** together.”
Lohan was snapped last Friday leaving New York City’s Jingle Ball at Madison Square Garden with rumored new beau Max George of the British boy band Wanted. Later, on Saturday, she tweeted a picture of George’s sweatshirt, along with the words, “Missing something?”
