Charlie Sheen's Publicist Quits – Then Is Fired
02/28/2011 AT 03:40 PM EST
The actor's publicist, Stan Rosenfield, quit after Sheen booked a slew of bizarre and no-holds-barred interviews in the last week.
"I have worked with Charlie Sheen for a long time and I care about him very much," Rosenfield says in a statement. "However, at this time, I'm unable to work effectively as his publicist and have respectfully resigned."
Sheen, 45, who has been attacking Two and a Half Men co-creator Chuck Lorre, fired back at the high-profile rep whose clients include George Clooney and Kelsey Grammer.
Calling Rosenfield a profanity, Sheen tells TMZ, "He's not allowed to quit, so you're fired."
