Don’t ever say Charlie Sheen’s not the charitable type — because he recently cut Lindsay Lohan a $100,000 check to cover the actress’ six-figure tax bill … all out of the goodness of his heart … sources tell hollywoodinsight.com.
Sources close to Lindsay tell us she and Charlie became close pals while on the set of “Scary Movie 5” back in September — spending a lot of time together both on and off the set.
During their bonding period, we’re told Lindsay and Charlie talked about everything — and at one point, Lindsay mentioned her ongoing tax problems.
We’re told Charlie offered to cut her a check then and there to get the IRS off her tail, but Lindsay refused.
Fast forward to last week — sources close to Lindsay tell hollywoodinsight.com, Lindsay’s biz manager received a check from Charlie for $100,000.
We’re told Lindsay was blown away by Charlie’s generosity — and immediately applied the money to her outstanding tax bill.
hollywoodinsight.com broke the story … Lindsay allegedly owed Uncle Sam $233,904 in unpaid taxes for 2009 and 2010 — but thanks to Charlie, that number’s nearly been cut in half.
As we reported, Lindsay’s slated to earn over $2 MILLION by the end of this year — but who knows where that’s going.
