Former New York Giant Lawrence Taylor auctioned off his Super Bowl XXV ring last week. It was sold for approximately $239,000, and Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reported that the actor was the one who purchased it.
According to Glazer, Taylor and his agent were told that Sheen placed the highest bid on his ring. Sheen originally issued a no comment when asked if he bought the jewelry. Now, the former Two and a Half Men star says he's not the owner of the ring.
In a statement, Sheen said, As much as I would be honored to own such an important artifact...I had nothing to do with the acquisition.
The Hall of Fame linebacker has had monetary issues that stem from his legal troubles. He was recently sentenced to six years' probation in 2011. He pled guilty to sexual misconduct and patronizing an underage prostitute.
The ring sold for a lot more than some experts predicted. Auctioneers predicted that it would sell for between $75,000 and $100,000.
Taylor earned the ring when the Giants defeated the Bills in the Super Bowl in 1991.
