Sheen Sued by Alleged Inspiration for Stalker Character
Ursula Auburn filed a lawsuit against the
Auburn says she had amorous "encounters" with the actor between 1992 and 1998, similar to the neighbor/stalker character Rose, whom the
The suit, filed in
Apparently, in real life, the suit says that during the period in question, "Auburn would show up at events Sheen was to attend, and generally was captivated by Sheen." This is similar to another passage that describes Rose as "[a] crazy female with no life except for stalking Harper every day of her life."
Auburn is seeking more than $1 million for invasion of privacy, negligence, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligent infliction of emotional distress, which amounts to "humiliation, emotional distress, embarrassment, chagrin, mortification, and immeasurable grief."
Sheen's lawyer calls the lawsuit "frivolous," probably in comparison to the much bigger fish he has to deep fry in the actor's divorce battle. Less than a week ago, estranged wife Richards filed a 17-page document (found on TheSmokingGun.com) that detailed their rocky relationship and why she was finally following up on her initial March 2005 divorce filing.
If true, it's not a pretty picture. Richards says that throughout their four-year marriage Sheen consistently, and often unrepentantly, abused drugs and alcohol and had sex with prostitutes. She also claims that he wasn't interested in being a father, even urging her to have an abortion for her first child and then being more interested in the results of a bet he made while she was in the hospital for the Caesarean birth of their second child. Richards says that his erratic behavior, sometimes violent, and the fact that he often brings prostitutes back to his own place are the main reasons she is fighting his request for joint custody of the children.
