Charlie Sheen reportedly reached out to help his troubled Scary Movie 5 co-star Lindsay Lohan pay off her outstanding IRS tab with a $100,000 check.

Lohan owes $233,904 in back taxes to the federal government from 2009-2010.

Sheen and Lohan, whose run-ins with the law and stints in rehab are well documented, apparently became close during the filming of the horror flick.

Lohan even mentioned her tax woes to Sheen, who has plenty of cash to spare.


Lindsay, 26, reportedly declined an offer by Charlie, 47, to pay down her IRS debt, but he sent a check to her manager anyway – for a hundred grand.

Pretty nice gesture … and yet a little baffling, considering Lohan isn’t destitute. She’s set to make more than $2 million this year from various acting gigs.

To Sheen, of course, that’s a drop in the bucket.

He banked $2 million PER EPISODE of Two and a Half Men and Anger Management was just picked up for 90 additional episodes, guaranteeing syndication.

Guess it helps to have an angel investor … or a devil investor in this case?
