Charlie Sheen

Checks into Rehab

2/23/2010 6:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen's rep told TMZ Charlie is in rehab.

Rehab
The rep says, "He will take some time off from his series, 'Two and a Half Men.' He has asked that his privacy be honored."

The rep says Charlie is checking into rehab as a "preventative measure," though he did not elaborate.

As TMZ first reported, both Charlie and wife Brooke Mueller -- who is also in rehab -- had been drinking during the Christmas Day incident that led to the criminal charges that were filed against Charlie.

Sources connected with the family tell us Charlie and Brooke have several full-time nannies who take care of the children.

We got this video of Charlie yesterday afternoon -- when asked about his wife Brooke Mueller, he told us "everything's great."

Hmmm. Wonder if his "yes-men" (two in particular) who do all his bidding are going to join him there?

Carlos, dude... what the hell? I thought you finally overcame your demons, man.

Man, that is sad, especially for those kids - both parents in rehab centers.

It's better that both parents are in rehab than one or both still using. Whether it's drugs or alcohol, makes no difference.
Charlie, you grew up with an alcoholic daddy, make it different for your own kids and they won't grow up needing to escape reality. Good luck to you and your wife.

This sounds exactly like a Family Service Plan enforced by CPS. No rehab, they lose custody of their kinds.

Just yesterday, it was a "No GO" as far as Charlie going to rehab. Perhaps, this is a condition of family services. His wife is a crack smoking ho with too much money, and Charlie.... well.... we all know he has issues. I think part of their rehab should be sterilization. These two do not need to bring anymore children into this world, together or apart.

Can I go to rehab too ? It sounds like a pleasant private relaxing retreat from the real world. And, apparently, excuses you from whatever not-so-great behavior you recently exhibited. Sounds great to me. Where do I sign up ?

If this is a proactive measure, congrats for having the guts to own up to it before it gets worse. That's the definition of being a man. If it's a measure of repair, congrats again for being able to admit needing help.

We all do at times. The Sheens are fortunate enough to be able to afford to go to rehab at the same time and have nannies to take care of their children. This way everyone is getting help at once, and that's what we should all be hoping for in the end, right?


I'm hoping for nothing but positive things for all of them.

Is it true that they use Nannyguards? I heard of the company and found them on google and someone told me they use these bodyguard type nannies? Can anyone validate this?

Okay, people asking who has the kids need to read the hole story -"Sources connected with the family tell us Charlie and Brooke have several full-time nannies who take care of the children."- however, I think it's messed up that the children have to be raised by the nannies. charlie and Brook need to grow up and realise they have children to take care of. I think that the children should be placed in a better home, with parents who wont drink AND fight around them or be in and out of jail.

"He has asked that his privacy be honored.""....these celebs crack me with that statement when they get in some BS THEY started.

People out of work and can't support their famalies and these celebs are have jobs that pay them huge amounts of money to live a comfortable lifestyle and still they "f" up.

Keep your freaking life under control and you won't have to ask the public to honor your privacy.
