Charlie Sheen is reportedly fuming after hearing a strip club and sushi restaurant used his name for its VIP room.
The New York Cheetahs Club in Times Square named their exclusive VIP area the “Charlie Sheen Room” and the self-proclaimed warlock is threatening to sue.
Sheen’s rep, Larry Solters, told E! News, “Charlie has nothing to do with this and it is unfortunate that these despicable parasites have not been exterminated.”
The room has photos of Sheen on display and told The New York Post’s page six, “We figured it would be comical to name a room after him. It was a room where you could dine on sushi served on cellophane on the body of one of our entertainers, not where you do crack.”
Sheen has reportedly sent the club a cease and desist letter from his attorney.
However, the Cheetahs Club is now refusing to change the name, according to TMZ and the actor’s lawyer told the gossip site, “The club’s ongoing efforts to attract media attention by using Charlie Sheen’s name and mischaracterizing the nature of his legal claims are more blatant attempts to promote the club by wrongfully exploiting my client’s publicity rights without his consent.”
