Reformed hellraiser CHARLIE SHEEN is desperate to clear his name as a wife beater - because he's tired of his female fans thinking the worst of him. The WALL STREET star admits that despite his well-publicised drug and sex addiction problems, the one thing he regrets most is being unable to talk about his alleged battery assault charges.
He says, "I don't miss the drugs, I don't miss the shame the grief or the embarrassment."
He adds, "I can't really talk about the charges publicly because of legal things. I wish I could give my side of the story and tell what really happened. I worry that many of my female fans say, `Oh he's a woman-beater - we're not going to watch his movies or TV shows.'" (GXG/WN/CPT)
