Charlie Sheen is continuing his generous streak. The “Anger Management” star recently donated $12,000 to the family of paparazzo Chris Guerra, who was killed while tailing Justin Bieber’s car.
The 29-year-old photographer died on New Year’s Day after being hit by a car in Los Angeles as he attempted to take pictures of Bieber’s car. The singer was not driving the vehicle at the time.
Sheen, who knows a former paparazzo that was friends with Guerra, said he told the actor about the Guerra family's struggles to cover his funeral costs, TMZ reported. Sheen then stepped in and wrote the family a $12,000 check on Wednesday.
Sheen spoke to TMZ and confirmed that he did in fact donate the money to Guerra’s family.
"A tragic incident like this erases the line between the photographer and the subject. It's an unforgiving moment that begs us all to be human and work as one to prevent this in the future," Sheen told the gossip site.
"As parents, we are all not supposed to bury our children. My deepest condolences to the families involved."
This is not Sheen’s first act of charity. Last month, the actor donated $75,000 to a charity supporting a Los Angeles police officer’s daughter who suffers from Childhood Rhabdomyosarcoma, a disease in which malignant cancer cells form in muscle tissue.
Prior to that, Sheen gifted fellow actor Lindsay Lohan $100,000 in order to help cover her tax debts.
A private funeral was planned on Friday for Guerra, TMZ said.
