Sheen's manager defends star against anti-Semitic text claims

Sheen's estranged wife obtained an emergency restraining order against the troubled actor on Tuesday (01Mar11) after she was refused physical custody of the couple's twin sons in an ongoing court battle.

In legal papers, Mueller claimed she feared for her safety, as well as that of her two kids, after Sheen had reportedly threatened her, and according to the New York Daily News, she also alleged he sent her a text message branding his manager Mark Burg a "stooped jew pig".

But Burg has refused to believe his embattled client would write such an insult - because his entire team, including recently resigned publicist Stan Rosenfeld, are Jewish.

Burg tells the publication, "We've managed Charlie for 12 or 13 years, and I don't think it's a text that he would ever send.

"Charlie Sheen's entertainment lawyer Jake Bloom is Jewish. Charlie Sheen's litigation attorney Marty Singer is Jewish. Charlie Sheen's (former) publicist Stan Rosenfeld is Jewish. Charlie Sheen's ex-wife is Jewish, as are his two boys Bob and Max."

Sheen and Mueller split following a Christmas Day fight in 2009, for which the actor received a stint behind bars and an assault charge.
