Charlie Sheen: It's Really an Ear Infection!

1/12/2011 9:34 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE:  Sources tell us Charlie will be on the set Thursday for rehearsals, and Friday's taping will go as scheduled.  As for the ear infection, we're told he had it in Vegas and should never have gotten on a plane because it made it a lot worse.  Charlie didn't leave the house today.  The doc made a house call.

A lot of people have contacted us scoffing at the official story that Charlie Sheen didn't make it to the set of "Two and a Half Men" today because of an ear infection ... but it's really true.

TMZ has confirmed ... a doctor from Warner Bros. is with Charlie and he really does have what we're told is a "serious, ongoing ear problem."

The Warner Bros. doctor got in the act because the insurance policy covering the show requires it.

Charlie has gone to his own doctor for the problem, but it's legit.

How on Earth do they justify insuring him when he's been to rehab, is clearly an alcoholic, and his hooker situation? I mean, his STD treatment bill alone probably costs more than his insurance premiums.

Considering how much he loves hookers/pornstars, I'm surprised more of them don't turn up pregnant. I think this means that Charle knows the benefits of condoms, so I doubt he's has a lot of STDs.

Alright! Glad we got this confirmed. What are we going to discuss now, his 'roids? How are you guys finding this stuff out. Shouldn't this be confidential?

Ever that sniffling opposed to blowing you nose can cause or perpetuate and ear infection?

Well cocaine can cause a runny nose and sniffling that runny nose, along with more coke, for 3-4 days, with no sleep, running down your immune system, sniffling some more, BOOM, ear infection.

(crazy bad run on sentence)

Party on Charlie, we're just jealous.

He may have an ear infection but I AM NOT BUYING IT when he says that's the reason he's missed work. Must be nice to have a scapegoat, eh Charlie? Addicts LIE that's what they're good for.

If it's an "ongoing problem" and serious, coke and alcohol are no good for that.

The question is, where did the infection START? He is such trash... I feel badly for his parents and kids.
