Wait, so Charlie Sheen isn't a rockstar from Mars with the blood of a jungle cat running through his veins? No. In fact, the winningest man in Hollywood might not be such a winner -- because according to Dr. Drew, he's losing... his mind.
In a VH1 special airing tonight, Dr. Drew Pinksy, addiction specialist and therapist to the stars, delves into the Two and a Half Men star's troubled life -- and what he believes to be Sheen's serious mental illness. We know what you're thinking: Charlie Sheen... crazy? Nooooo. But there might be a word for Sheen's brand of kook -- and no, it's not "winning."
Pinsky says that Sheen's exhibiting signs of "hypomania," a symptom of bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Hypomania is characterized by delusions of grandeur, euphoria, irritability, extreme creativity, drive for success (uh-hem... winning...) and reduced need for sleep.
Does it include a proclivity to say really creepy things to the media? We'll have to find out tonight on VH1 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
