What’s that sound? Oh, that’s just Charlie Sheen laughing at us after churning up the rumor mill over the weekend with the fake news that he’d married his porn star girlfriend.

The “Anger Management” star announced on Twitter Sunday that he and his bendy, 24-year-old girlfriend, Brett Rossi, had tied the knot recently in Iceland.

He posted a photo of them sitting on the steps of the former French consulate building in Reykjavik, the site of a 1986 summit between Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev.

The caption read: “This is the house ware M Gorbachev R Reagan did some epic. it's also where S and I GOT MARRIED!”

(“S” is a nickname for Brett, who also goes by Skottie.)

The news sent Twitter into overdrive.

But on Monday, a spokesman told Us Weekly magazine that Charlie, in fact, has not married for a fourth time: “He's kidding around. Read the hashtag.’”

This was the hashtag: #RumorMilUhPede.

Brett herself took to Twitter on Monday to mock everyone who believed the fake news, tweeting: Dear society, Read things ENTIRELY before you repeat something. LMFAO. Hashtag #MajaLook”

She knows how to make people look. Brett, who has an adult-only website and has appeared in several adult films, doesn’t like to be called a porn star. She refers to herself as an “international centerfold.”

When one of her Twitter followers told her Sunday that an LA TV station had reported the news of her “marriage,” she tweeted: “Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha epic.”

Come on, like who wouldn’t believe that Charlie would marry a porn star – er, international centerfold – half his age?
