Charlie Sheen said that he was initially worried about the recent rumors that he had died.

"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.
