"The Two and Half Men" star said that he was concerned that the rumor was referring to some sort of different 'death'.
Speaking to the Insider he said "When I heard on the news that I had died the other day, I quickly ran to my PC and checked the ratings for my show."
He added "Hmmm… that's odd, all the numbers appeared solid. Perhaps even up a bit.
"You can only imagine my relief when I discovered shortly afterward that they were referring to my actual literal death. That I can survive."
As soon as he heard the rumors he called his mother to assure her they were not true.
Sheen is just the last in a long list of celebrities who have had fake death rumors circulated. Just recently representatives for Eddie Murphy, Aretha Franklin and Adam Sandler were all forced to deny fake death stories.
