Charlie Sheen gave Lindsay Lohan $100,000.

No, it wouldn't be the first time Charlie Sheen has given a woman money. And, no, we can't be entirely sure how she earned it or plans to pay it back.

No, our minds are not in the gutter. Not totally.

The IRS filed a lien against the actress for failing to pay nearly $100,000 for the 2009 tax year. As is usually the case with Lohan's problems, this one wasn't her fault. The actress claimed her accountants were to blame. About a month later, the IRS filed another lien against Lohan for just under $150,000 for the 2010 tax year. The two tax bills reportedly remain unpaid for most of the year.

According to TMZ, Sheen has ridden his white ... whatever ... in to save the day. Sheen gave $100,000, a bit less than half of the $234,000 she still needed to pay the IRS, according to Forbes. The two reportedly became friendly in recent months working together on the Shakespearean classic "Scary Movie 5."

Lohan initially declined her new pal's help, according to TMZ. Then she realized that not even Sheen could waste all that money he made being the highest-paid actor on television and supposedly took him up on the offer.

Lohan should be able to take care of the rest of her bill soon, provided she only gets in one or two car accidents this year. Forbes reported she's on track to make about $2 million this year.
