It pays to have equally troubled friends in high places!

Plenty of folks are struggling in today's economy, but hell with them 'cause Charlie Sheen is busy helping Lindsay Lohan.

According to TMZ, Charlie gave Lindsay's business manager $100,000 to help cover her $233,904 bill for unpaid taxes from 2009 and 2010. Why? TMZ's sources claim Charlie and Lindsay became close on the set of Scary Movie 5, so he decided to help her. If only we all had a Crazy Uncle Charlie to swoop in and save the day!

The guy does have a ton of money, and he knows what it's like to have your troubles pile around you. Then again, LiLo always magically finds her way out of every problem, so for once it would be nice if she could take care of herself. Besides, TMZ says she'll earn more than $2 million by the end of this year, so she's not exactly suffering.
