Charlie Sheen was hospitalized early Thursday (January 27) in Los Angeles. His condition is unknown, but he reportedly called 911 after experiencing abdominal pain.
“All I know is what I was told — that he was having severe abdominal pains,” a rep for the “Two and a Half Men” star told People.
According to TMZ, the actor was taken from his home at 7 a.m., a half-hour after the 911 call was made, and brought to Cedars-Sinai Hospital. He left his house on a stretcher with a towel over his face. Two women exited the house when an ambulance arrived there.
Neighbors say that Sheen had thrown a party the night before, where women were heard singing along to Red Hot Chili Peppers songs. The party went late into the night and into the early morning hours. While sources close to the actor say his condition is “serious,” further details are unknown.
TMZ reported that Charlie’s father, Martin Sheen; his mom, Janet Templeton; and ex-wife, Denise Richards, are all at the hospital where his rep says he is resting. Production for his hit CBS comedy is not expected to be affected by the hospital stay ; the show is on hiatus this week.
Sheen was hospitalized last October in New York. He reportedly stopped communicating with his sober coach shortly after the incident. “He has not heard from Charlie since he told him not to start New Year’s Day!” a source told Us Weekly.
“We have a high level of concern. How could we not?” CBS entertainment chief Nina Tassler said at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena earlier this month. “This man is a father. He’s got children. He has a family. So obviously there’s concern on a personal level.”
