#apologizing: Charlie Sheen Backpedals on Claim He Partied with LA Mayor

Charlie Sheen, the actor who captivated the country with his talk of possessing tiger blood and a harem of adult movie actresses, is now apologizing to L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.

The imbroglio began when Sheen tweeted a picture of himself and the mayor, the two celebrating at a new Cabo San Lucas hotel. Sheen later said he partied with the politician for hours, all the while Villaraigosa vigorously downplayed both the photo and the time the two spent together. The Democrat, Sheen said, can “drink with the best of ’em.”

Now, Sheen says he’s sorry for stirring up matters.

“The mayor was visiting friends in San Jose del Cabo, who were at the opening of the El Ganzo hotel and bar where my share of the ownership is 100% committed to the Los Cabos Children’s Foundation,” Sheen said.

“Mayor Villaraigosa was gracious enough to take a photo with me while we are at the same event. The mayor spoke to many other people during the opening, as well as I did. I am a giant fan of the mayor’s, and apologize if any of my words have been misconstrued.”

Surely there are plenty of eyewitnesses who can either back up the mayor’s version of events or say that Sheen’s initial comments were dead on.
