Charlie Sheen’s long-time personal assistant Rick Calamaro has died.

“It’s true,” another friend of Sheen, Tony Todd, confirmed to Celebuzz, after word spread on Twitter about the sudden death of the man who was considered the best friend of Sheen, 46.

As of yet, no word from the Anger Management star or his rep.

Calamaro, a former Hollywood club promoter, was reportedly present during Sheen’s notorious 36-hour party in 2011, leading many to suggest that he was a bad influence on the addiction-prone actor.

He stopped working for the actor in November, last year, a source said.

A former business partner of Calamaro took to Twitter to confirm the news, writing: “RIP Rick Calamaro my first business partner in LA and dear friend. You will forever be in my heart, heaven has a new angel.”
