Charlie Sheen admits he was winding up his ex wife with claims he had married his ex-porn star girlfriend at the weekend.
The Anger Management star posted on Twitter Sunday that he got hitched to Brett Rossi while on a trip to Iceland.
But he has since claimed the tweet was a “joke” directed at ex-wife Denise Richards.
“I wanted to give Denise a stroke!!!” the 48-year-old actor told TMZ.
Charlie was first photographed in a clinch with former adult film star Brett at Thanksgiving.
He has been married three times before, to Donna Peele from 1995 to 1996, Denise Richards from 2002 to 2006 and Brooke Mueller from 2008 to 2011.
Charlie and Denise have been locked in a bitter exchange of words via social media in recent weeks.
The situation got particularly heated over the Christmas holidays when it was rumoured Denise would not allow Charlie to see his two children.
“Charlie expressed his anger in a series of texts ... saying, ‘lemme see if I got this straight; you won't even spring the girls for 30 mins, from the 10 mil house I gave you, (100 yds away) to come down and open the gifts their dad bought them before they leave??’” reported TMZ on December 23.
"I hope your stocking is bronze-age coal stuffed along with an assortment of 8x10's of yours so you can see how despicable and heartlessly ugly you and your fermented soul continue to be. hash tag. hag shag,” he allegedly wrote.
But Denise hit back at Charlie via Twitter on Christmas Eve.
“@charliesheen U done ranting? keep it classy dude. Our kids don't need to be privy to this, U are welcome 2 spend xmas w/us Hope u still come,” she wrote.
