Actor Charlie Sheen has entered rehab and the hit CBS show 'Two And A Half Men' has gone on hiatus. Reports from multiple Los Angeles area media state the 45 year old lead star of the show has sought treatment for "wild partying." Officials from CBS have confirmed the production of the show will remain halted until Sheen is released from rehab.
Sheen's rehab stay follows allegations placed by an undisclosed "person familiar" with a Thursday incident during which one of Sheen's neighbors called a 911 operator stating Sheen was "intoxicated" and suffering from abdominal and chest pains. Sheen was transported to a L.A. area hospital following the 911 call and the actor remained at the facility until midnight for treatment of a hernia problem confirmed by Sheen's publicist, Stan Rosenfield. Rosenfield also offered a statement Friday confirming Sheen's decision to go to rehab with: "Charlie Sheen has voluntarily entered an undisclosed rehabilitation center today. He is most grateful to all who have expressed their concern."
Sheen's rep has also requested respect for his client's privacy and stated no additional information will be made public regarding Sheen's treatment.
Two And A Half Men production executives issued a statement which read: "We are profoundly concerned for his health and well-being, and support his decision" in reference to Sheen's decision to enter rehab.
