Charlie Sheen`s pals fear he would die

Washington: Charlie Sheen’s friends fear the actor would die soon.

They say that the star has been hanging out with some ‘bad people’ over the last few months.

Sheen has been having renewed substance abuse problems since August, shortly after he entered his guilty plea in the Aspen domestic violence case, according to a source.

People who came in Sheen’s life after the court case took him "in a bad direction."

When he was at the Playboy mansion in August, he was already drinking again, a website reports.

One source, who has been working with Charlie recently, said he`s been "a tortured soul for months."

Another source very close to Charlie echoed the fear that Charlie`s most recent downturn could end tragically.
