Charlie Sheen Paid for the Funeral of a Paparazzi Photographer Who Died

1/11/2013




Last week, a 29-year-old paparazzi photographer named Chris Guerra was hit by a car and killed while trying to shoot video of JUSTIN BIEBER being pulled over in his Ferrari.  (To add insult to injury, Bieber wasn't even in the car.  His buddy LIL TWIST was driving.)

And now, CHARLIE SHEEN is donating $12,000 to cover Guerra's funeral expenses.  He says, "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.  As parents, we are all not supposed to bury our children. My deepest condolences to the families involved."

This wasn't just a random donation though.  Charlie is friends with a guy who knew Guerra and was trying to raise money for his funeral.  This is just the latest in a long line of good deeds by Charlie.

Last July, he announced that he was giving one percent of the profits from his new show "Anger Management" to the USO.  That guaranteed them a donation of AT LEAST $1 MILLION.

He also gave away the $250,000 he was paid for his cameo in "Scary Movie 5".  $100,000 of it went to LINDSAY LOHAN to help her pay off her back taxes.  The rest went to different charities.

And last month, Charlie and his stunt double gave $100,000 to a 10-year-old girl who's battling cancer.
