Charlie Sheen is dishing some dirt about Donald Trump, recalling a time the Major League star says he was gifted phony cufflinks by the real estate mogul after meeting him at a dinner party.

Appearing on The Graham Norton Show last week, Sheen explained that he met Trump at a dinner party in 2008 — right before the actor married his now ex-wife Brooke Mueller.

Trump said he wanted to give Sheen an early wedding present — and took off what he claimed were expensive platinum and diamond cufflinks.

“He says: ‘These are platinum-diamond, Harry Winston,’ and he pulls off these cufflinks, and he gives them to me,” Sheen recalled. And so I’m like, ‘Oh, Mr. Trump, you really shouldn't do this.’ And he goes, ‘No, no, it's the least I can do, and have a great marriage’ and all that.”

A few months later, Sheen asked a jewelry appraiser to examine Trump's cufflinks.

“She took the loupe, took about four seconds, and kind of recoiled from it -- much as people do from Trump,” he said. “So she says, "In their finest moment, this is cheap pewter and bad zirconia." They're stamped ‘Trump.’ And I thought, ‘What does this say about the man, you know?’”

According to reports, Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, may have told the GOP frontrunner in no uncertain terms that he should fire controversial campaign manager Corey Lewandowski Monday.

In a statement to The New York Times, Trump campaign spokesperson Hope Hicks said: “The Donald J. Trump Campaign for President, which has set a historic record in the Republican primary having received almost 14 million votes, has today announced that Corey Lewandowski will no longer be working with the campaign. The campaign is grateful to Corey for his hard work and dedication and we wish him the best in the future.”
