A day after he was hospitalized for partying and drinking for a solid 36 hours, actor Charlie Sheen has entered rehab to fix himself. His publicist confirmed this on Friday. This puts his “Two and a Half Men” series on hold as his home network CBS supports him on his plans. The comedy series is one of the highest rated in the United States.
“Charlie Sheen has voluntarily entered an undisclosed rehabilitation center today. He is most grateful to all who have expressed their concern,” the actor’s spokesman Stan Rosenfield told Reuters. Rosenfield also said that Sheen is asking for privacy and that there will be no other information to be released in connection with what the actor is going through.
Sheen is now 45 years old and is one of the highest paid television actors in the US. He earns an estimated $27.5 million a year for playing the role of a womanizing bachelor in his “Two and a Half Men” series. The show is said to have 15 million viewers weekly.
Last Thursday, he was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital after severe attacks of abdominal pains. He left the hospital late Thursday and was planning to return to the set of his TV show scheduled to resume on Tuesday. CBS, Warner Bros. Television, and executive producer Chuck Lorre has decided to put on hold Sheen’s comedy show. They had this statement released: “We are profoundly concerned for his health and well-being, and support his decision.”
Sheen’s personal issues have dominated the headlines in the past year. He had a stint on a rehab facility, admitted a penchant for prostitutes and porn stars, and reportedly attacked his wife in 2009. CBS entertainment chief Nina Tassler has told journalists earlier this month that the network is very concerned about Sheen’s personal life. The actor is said to be always at his best behavior while at work.
It was not, once again, the best of nights for actor Charlie Sheen – and he was a mere eight days away from the end of his 90-day probation, due to the incident with his wife Brooke Mueller in Aspen last Christmas. The star of “Two and a Half Men” was hospitalized Tuesday at the New York Presbyterian Hospital after he reportedly trashed his suite at The Plaza Hotel in Manhattan, according to a feature on the New York Daily News.
The chandelier in the actor’s suite was reportedly broken, among other things, and a police source shared that Sheen was “irrational” and that he “was getting in everyone’s face, frothing, paranoid, acting like a true [jerk].” While there were no drugs that were found in the room, it is said that Sheen admitted to drinking and snorting cocaine prior to the incident.
According to police sources, Sheen’s outrage was apparently a result of his inability to find his wallet and cell phone. He reportedly had a “mystery woman” with him in the room, and it is this woman who alerted the hotel desk of Sheen’s erratic behavior.
A spokesman for Sheen, however, downplayed the incident and gave a statement saying that the actor’s hospitalization was due to “an adverse allergic reaction to some medication.” This excuse lands in a list of “worst celebrity alibis” in another recent post on the New York Daily News.
Sheen’s ex-wife, Denise Richards, and their two daughters, were also staying at The Plaza.
Sheen has since been released from the hospital, and was expected to fly back to California.
