Charlie Sheen Calls Off Engagement to Brett Rossi

Charlie Sheen has ended his engagement to former adult film star Brett Rossi, just weeks before they planned to tie the knot.
"Scotty and I had a great year together as we travelled the world and crossed a lot of things off our bucket list," the actor, 49, said in a statement that his publicist, Jeff Ballard, provided to PEOPLE. "She's a terrific gal – but we've mutually decided to go our separate ways and not spend the rest of our lives together."
The announcement comes just before the pair planned to walk down the aisle in November. As for why the change of heart, Sheen said, "I've decided that my children deserve my focus more than a relationship does right now. I still have a tremendous fondness for Scotty and I wish her all the best."
The two met last November before Sheen popped the question on a romantic Valentine's Day trip to Hawaii.
This would have been Sheen's fourth marriage.
