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.

If you take out the 'a' from ear and the 'inf' from infection. Then I'd believe it.

Could it be that he has a resistance to antibiotics because of all of the diseases he has acquired?

HORSE****. Ear infections in adults, while they can be serious, are rare. The fact is that a bender of the proportion as has been alleged could cause alot of ill feelings. Sheen needs to pull his **** together and fast before he dies.

Let's hope that's the only type of infection he has considering the company he keeps.

James Dean was the last person Warner's allowed to pull this stuff. Lorre's got Matt Dillon waitin' in a corner of the soundstage.

I have a serious question. What do all of you ignorant fools do after you respond negatively to these stories then the truth comes out and you realize you're completely wrong. How many excuses can you come up with? He makes millions of dollars an episode. He doesnt care. Why do you? He knows what he's doin. He doesn't need your help. You guys have no clue what you're talk in about.

Oh so in other words, TMZ - "My bad, it's ok if we spread lies and deceit about Charlie being gone because he went on a bender and not because it was an ear infection as long as we apologize later and give confirmation it was in fact an ear infection before doing so in the first story". My bad.
