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.

IT IS COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE THAT PEOPLE JOKE ABOUT CHARLIE SHEEN AND HIS COCAINE AND ALCOHOL AND SEX ADDICTION...HE IS A FATHER...AND EITHER HE GOES INTO REHAB, OR ONLY CAN SEE HIS TWO DAUGHTERS WITH SUPERVISED VISITATION....THIS IS COMPLETELY DEPLORABLE....YOU AT TMZ, AND OTHER TABLOIDS, AND THE AUTHORITIES NEED TO RESPECT HIS 2 DAUGHTERS, NOT TO MENTION HIS OTHER CHILDREN AND DARN WELL STOP JOKING ABOUT HIS MENTAL ILLNESS. THE TV SHOW NEEDS TO FIRE HIM ASAP...THIS MUST STOP...NO MORE JOKES.

There once was a wench named Bombshell,
Who did frenchkiss Bree Olsen and tell.
Bree put her tongue in Charlie's ear,
He got an ear infection I fear,
And now he's hoping his penis doesn't fall off as well.

Charlie Sheen doesn't bother me. If he wants to marry gold digging sluts, have 5 kids (that we know of). pay tons of alimony and child support - that's OK. But, it's cheaper to hook up with hos and porn stars. You just have to pay them by the night. Who really disgusts me is Tiger Woods. He's a lying, nasty, hypocritical, creep with 16 mistresses. He has always been an arrogant, swearing, spitting, no-class guy. I hope he never wins a golf game again.
