A disgraced Aussie journo has managed to land one of the scoops of the year in the entertainment world when he befriended troubled Two And A Half Men actor Charlie Sheen.
Dylan Howard, who was fired from Channel Seven in 2008 after a dodgy story on doping in the AFL, has turned to gossip reporting in recent years and has since managed to do quite well for himself.
Howard has been close to Sheen throughout the drawn-out public affair involving alcohol, drugs and strippers and was on hand to deliver the news that Sheen had passed recent drug tests.
Reporting for RadarOnline, Howard was in Sheen’s bathroom when the actor took the urine tests and took the results to the media, parading about on a variety of TV shows in the US.
He told Good Morning America: “The good news for Charlie Sheen as he’s watching from home is he tested negative for every single one of those tests. The blood test only goes for a window for only 24 hours. The urine tests for some 72 hours. But this is a big win for Charlie Sheen.”
Just how Howard managed to gain such a priviledged position with Sheen is anyone’s guess.
