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.

You have to feel sorry for the cast and crew always wondering if Sheen is going to show and work or Overdose and get sick and the show's canceled. The thing is Sheen knows that without himself in lead they have no show. That's a whole lot of mouths to feed and even then the crew can not talk badly about Sheen at all.

Once the show is canceled, who will want to hire Sheen with all his publicized events? He seems very arrogant about himself.

If you look close enough at the picture you just may see some light showing through Charlies left ear as the otolarynologists looks into Charlies right ear with an auriscope.

Ear infection? Really? Dude get your ass to work you bum.... You were not too sick to party it up in Vegas but now no esta workie? You make crazy money for what you do, and you can't getter done because of an ear infection? My dad made $10 per hour and was at work while having a heart attack (no joke) he finished his shift and went to the er and they discovered he had 2 heart attacks and a stroke. Point is people work every day with injuries, and ailments prime example Brett Farve (which I don't like) but he played football professional FOOTBALL with a broken ankle.
Time to step up sally and report to work.

HEY BIG WIGS AT WB, if your looking for someone who will show up to work for a quarter of the money give me a shout... I would be more than happy to fill the spot..

Yeah, I don't doubt he has an ear infection. When you do massive amounts of coke regularly, whatever residue you do not eliminate, gets stuck in sinus cavities and ear canal. Ears, throat and nose are connected. If ac***ulated for a long time, you can get a serious ear or sinus infection, requiring drainage. Of course he went to his own doctor. He's used to it.

I love how the men worship this tool.

To stride to be like this less-than-a-man person, would put you in the loser race.

Who wants to win that race?

Looks like many of the I-don't-ever-get-laid-posters on here need to re-think their worshiping. LOOK at WHAT he is laying.
I hope he is double bagging it.


Charlie should just get a tattoo on his forehead that says LOSER and get over with.

It's been proven that a foreskin traps bacteria that can lead to other parts of the body becoming infected. Maybe Charlie should think about finally getting circmcised.

An inner ear infection can be really hard to cure. Especially when drinking because alcohol makes antibiotics less effective. Pouring Patron Tequila into your ear isn't going to work.
