Charlie Sheen has been forced to change his mobile phone number after he accidentally posted it on Twitter.

According to The Sun, the mistake occurred when Sheen tried to send his number via private message to teen heartthrob Justin Bieber, asking the Baby singer to give him a call.

Instead, the former Two And A Half Men actor - who was having dinner at Las Vegas restaurant Guy Savoy - tweeted the number on his public profile, meaning that his five million followers were able to see it.

The 46-year old's phone then started going crazy, with onlookers at the Vegas eatery telling the tabloid: "Charlie's phone immediately went into meltdown. It was ringing wildly and he got 1,800 text messages in minutes."

"Charlie saw the funny side and answered the phone a few times, saying things like 'Ray's Pizza' and 'winning'."

They added: "But his phone just continued ringing and buzzing and eventually just completely melted down. Charlie was, like, 'I guess I need a new phone'."

A spokesperson for Sheen has since stated: "I haven't been able to get through to him on the phone since Wednesday. He just got a new number."
