Did he or didn't he buy it?

Controversial actor Charlie Sheen reportedly was the online-auction winner Sunday of Hall of Fame linebacker Lawrence Taylor's Super Bowl XXV ring.

Taylor and his agent Mark Leipseiter were informed Wednesday night Sheen had the winning bid, Fox Sports reported Friday.

However, the former star of "Two and a Half Men" has not confirmed the purchase. When asked for a confirmation from the crew of "The Dan Patrick Show," Sheen texted "no comment."

The Super Bowl ring was sold for $230,401.Online auctioneer SCP Auctions did not announce the name and location of the winning bidder.

The auction was won with the 30th bid.

The ring was given by Taylor to his son, Lawrence Taylor Jr. Fox Sports reported last week that Lepselter said the linebacker did not know his son had put the ring up for auction. However, the auction listing said the elder Taylor fine with the decision.

The ring auction gained more attention Friday when current Giants lineman Osi Umenyiora said he would buy the ring if his Twitter account reached 500,000 followers. However, as of Sunday morning his account was just above 54,000 followers.
