Charlie Sheen has donated $12,000 for the funeral expenses of a photographer killed while taking pictures of Justin Bieber's car on New Year's Day. TMZ.com said Thursday that Sheen is a friend of a friend of Chris Guerra, 29, who was struck and killed by a car as he was crossing a Los Angeles highway.

"A tragic incident like this erases the line between the photographer and the subject," Sheen told TMZ in a statement.
