Paparazzo photographer Chris Guerra was struck by a car and killed on New Year’s Day attempting to take pictures of Justin Bieber‘s Ferrari, which Bieber was actually not in at the time. Now Charlie Sheen is cutting a $12,000 check to help pay for the funeral costs, reports TMZ.
Reportedly, Sheen is friends with a photographer who was friends with Guerra and Sheen heard through this mutual friend that the Guerra family was trying to raise money for the funeral, so he sprung into action and wrote a check to Guerra’s mother.
Sheen tells TMZ, “A tragic incident like this erases the line between the photographer and
the subject. It’s an unforgiving moment that begs us all to be human
and work as one to prevent this in the future. As parents, we are all not supposed to bury our children. My deepest condolences to the families involved.”
