The news comes after Olson, whose real name is Rachel Oberlin, last week denied reports that she had left the former Two and a Half Men star for a second time.
She and marijuana magazine model Natalie "Natty" Kenly were accompanying the actor on his 18-city "My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option" tour.
Despite the break-up Sheen seemed to be in good spirits at his show which included a question and answer session with audience members who later praised the actor's performance.
During the show Sheen also invited Lindsay Lohan to hang out with him after she was released from a Los Angeles jail on bail pending an appeal of a four-month jail sentence imposed for violating her probation stemming from a previous drink-driving charge.
"I would hug her and let her know it's gonna be OK," he said, when an audience member asked if he had words of wisdom for the troubled star.
Scott Dooley - a co-host of a breakfast show on Sydney radio station Nova - joined Sheen on stage along with former NBA player Dennis Rodman and comedian Jeff Ross.
Dooley, who formed an unlikely friendship with the star when they made a short film together, took to Twitter today following the show to express his relief at the success of the show.
"Just off stage with @charliesheen. Didn't get booed and I got to hug Dennis Rodman," he wrote.
"I'm going to have a drink tonight then it's back on the @QantasAirways plane to Australia. I have stories to tell and news," he added.
Sheen continues to travel the US on his tour which has received mixed reviews since kicking off in Detroit on April 2, when he was booed off stage.

Boutique necklace lands Lindsay Lohan back in jail, then out on bail, after a day of dramaLINDSAY Lohan is back in the headlines for all the wrong reasons after a day of drama that began with a Los Angeles judge downgrading a jewellery store theft charge, and ended with the actress facing a jail sentence of 120 days.
Lohan, 24, was released from jail late at night after posting $US75,000 bail pending an appeal of the four-month jail sentence imposed for violating her probation stemming from a previous drunk driving charge.
She was taken from the courtroom to Lynwood Women's Facility — where she spent the next five hours — before being bailed out at 9:21pm local time.
Lohan was described as being "cooperative, cordial and optimistic" during her short stay by a jail captain, reported local news outlet KTLA.
Her day had begun with a court appearance — a preliminary hearing in a theft case in which it is alleged the Mean Girls star walked out of a jewellery boutique in January without paying for a $US2500 gold necklace.
Judge Stephanie Sautner reduced the felony theft charge to a misdemeanour and set a pre-trial hearing for May 11.
But the judge also said she felt the evidence indicated Lohan intended to steal the jewellery, and she ruled the actress had violated her 2007 drunk driving probation — sentencing her to 120 days in jail, plus 480 hours of community service, for the violation.
The community service is to be served at a women's centre and the city morgue, TMZ reported.
Judge Sautner said she chose those particular locations so that Lohan could see "how truly needy women and women who have fallen on real hard times have to live", according to the Los Angeles Times.
Prosecutor Danette Meyers said she would appeal the decision to downgrade the theft matter to a misdemeanour.
"The judge abused her discretion in this case," Ms Meyers said.
"It was a felony filing because the defendant was on probation… She has violated on numerous occasions… the evidence was incredibly strong."
Modestly dressed in a black long-sleeve T-shirt and navy high-waisted pants, with her blond hair swept into a loose updo and a white scarf around her neck, Lohan was greeted by the usual throng of paparazzi outside the Los Angeles Airport Courthouse when she arrived for the hearing.
The jewellery store owner that accused Lohan of stealing the necklace testified during the proceedings, saying the actress came into her boutique in Venice, California three times in one week before walking off with the pricey piece.
Sofia Kaman said Lohan spent about 45 minutes in the store on January 22 with her friend Patrick, who also accompanied the starlet on a January 15 visit to Kamofie & Company.
While Patrick was chatting with Ms Kaman, Lohan slipped out of the store wearing a gold necklace.
Ms Kaman said she realised the necklace was gone 10 minutes after the pair left.
However the store owner waited until the next evening to report the piece stolen because Lohan allegedly said she would be back the next day to purchase a ring. The actress, however, failed to show up on January 23.
Today's events were just the latest in a series of legal issues that have plagued the once in-demand actress.
She has been in and out of jail, rehab and courtrooms multiple times since 2007.
Lohan was sentenced in July last year to serve 90 days in jail and another 90 days in rehab for violating her probation in the drunk driving case.
However due to jail overcrowding, she served just 13 days before being released to a detox facility.
In 2007, she spent just 84 minutes in jail after police arrested her twice for cocaine possession while driving — in one instance crashing her Mercedes-Benz into a tree.
She completed a court-ordered spell in rehab for drug addiction in January.
Lohan gets jail sentence for probation violation
by ANTHONY McCARTNEY
April 22, 201
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A judge sentenced Lindsay Lohan to 120 days in jail on Friday for a probation violation after hearing evidence against the actress in a theft case.
Lohan's attorney, Shawn Holley, said she will appeal the ruling, which will allow the actress to post bail.
Sautner also ordered Lohan to serve more than 400 hours of community service, including 300 hours at a women's center.
The ruling came after Sautner reduced Lohan's grand theft case down to a misdemeanor and after prosecutors gave their case against the actress.
It will be Lohan's fourth jail stint.
Sautner refused to dismiss the theft case against Lohan, but said she often sees more serious cases that get reduced to lesser charges.
"I see the intent here," Sautner said. "I see a level of brazenness with `Let me see what I can get away with here."'
Sautner ruled that prosecutors had shown that Lohan violated her probation, but also said in reducing the charge that she was going to give the actress "an opportunity." Lohan entered a not guilty plea Friday.
The "Mean Girls" star arrived at the courthouse wearing a black long-sleeve shirt, blue trousers and a scarf.
Lohan has been a courthouse fixture since last May when she missed a hearing in her drunken driving case. Since then, two judges have sent her to jail twice and rehab, also twice.
On Wednesday, Fiore Films announced it had cast the actress to play the wife of John Gotti Jr., the son of the infamous mob boss dubbed the "Teflon Don," in a biopic of the family. The project, title, "Gotti: Three Generations," is scheduled to begin shooting later this year in Lohan's native New York.
In an interview with the AP, Lohan said she was eager to put her court cases behind her and once again be known as an actress.
"I'm really excited to be back on set and clear up all the misinterpretations about me and show this is what I love to do," Lohan said.
"I think in the past, I had a lot of distractions," she said. "I've learned a lot. I've lived a lot. When I'm on set, it's about the film."
