Their engagement ended abruptly twenty years ago after an incident with a firearm.
But it seems Kelly Preston is still supportive of her ex Charlie Sheen.
"My heart just goes out to him, and all of his family," the actress, 48, told US magazine People.
"He's such a good person underneath all of it, he really is."
Her comments come as reports surfaced of a police raid on the troubled actor's house.
Officers were allegedly dispatched to his residence on Thursday to search for weapons that violated a restraining order taken out by estranged wife Brooke Muller.
The 50-year-old took to Twitter to deny these claims: "All reports are false."
But he added that "the LAPD were AWESOME!! Absolute pros! they can serve and protect this warlock anytime!!!"
