Charlie Sheen

Rushed To Hospital

1/27/2011 5:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen was rushed to the hospital this morning, TMZ has learned ... and a source at the hospital tells us, "It's serious."

0117-charlie-sheen-ex-6
We're told Charlie was taken out of his home on a stretcher and loaded into an ambulance at 7 AM.
Two young women exited the house at the same time Charlie was taken out with a towel partially over his face.

Charlie was transported to Cedars-Sinai Hospital in L.A.  We're told tests were performed and doctors are waiting for results.

The 911 call was placed at 6:35 AM.

Sources say Charlie was having severe abdominal pains which triggered the 911 call. Stan Rosenfield, Charlie's publicist, tells TMZ Charlie was in the emergency room this morning -- sleeping.

We're told Charlie's father, Martin Sheen, and his mom, Janet Templeton, are at the hospital.  Charlie's ex-wife, Denise Richards, is also there.

UPDATE: Neighbors tell TMZ Charlie threw some sort of party last night. They heard women inside Charlie's house singing Red Hot Chili Peppers songs throughout the evening. The party went on -- loudly -- well into the wee hours.

UPDATE:  Charlie's medical emergency will not immediately affect production ... "Two and a Half Men" is on hiatus this week.

Maybe someone can get this message to Harvey to forward to Charlie Sheen, it would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
Dear Charlie,
I've faced tragic losses in my life and suffer daily with severe pain. As a single, working, struggling mother juggling so many issues I found that the only relief I could get sometimes was by savoring a ****tail (or few). In fact, after work I'd come home, sit back, watch your show and "join" you in a drink as I enjoyed your and the cast's escapades of the day.
Because of the medications I take, including the morphine based pain killers, I know that drinking alcohol is not only not wise, but at times, an outright "death defying" risk. But what could I do? I needed rest. I needed relief.
The lifestyle you portray on your show affected me in two ways: 1) It made light of the hangovers, physical deterioration and even memory loss that comes from alcohol abuse - so, none of my indulgences seemed serious or a risk to my health; and 2) By weaving alcohol into so many scenes it made the show have an alluring appeal, like, an invitation to drink with you. As a result, I'd often lose my resolve not to drink even when it was clear it wasn't good for me.
And how bad was alcohol to me??? You see, in no time at all, even just a few drinks brought me this terrible pain in my right side… it felt as if there was pain in my liver. When liver enzyme tests alerted me to the danger I was in after drinking, that pain was overshadowed by terror!
So, for my kids, I decided I just had to not drink, not even a single one. But your show, which I do enjoy (you're ALL so damn funny!) makes it really tough for me to keep to this resolve… so easy... so easy to kill myself (without intending to do so).
Further, we all know that what applies to alcohol is true for drugs like cocaine. So… maybe, if not for yourself, but for the benefit of others who like me, struggle with drug or alcohol abuse, you could lead your program in a change of direction. Show the world an example of a wealthy, successful "jingle writer" who recognizes the detrimental affect alcohol has on his well-being and then, BEFORE hitting rock bottom - as it happens in real life... losing one's family, job, savings, home, health etc...YOU instead, face it, find healthy alternatives and set an example for others to follow.
Research and investigate rehabilitation programs. Discover the steps to success. Use your own experiences to exemplify the things that trip us up in seeking healthy alternatives as well as the techniques to employ to stay on the road to sobriety. Hey, sobriety ain't such a bad thing… beats the hell out of a hangover or cirrhosis of the liver any day! And while we're at it, seems to me sobriety is also waaaaay better than a stroke, heart failure or falling into a slumber and stopping breathing!
Right now you can be a "Hollywood cliché" or a "Hollywood Hero!" Show your audience the drug/alcohol-free party boy! If anyone could do it, you're the one to do it!
Charlie, show the world you can be suave, debonair, handsome, funny and a great host without the use of alcohol or drugs. The medical concerns that came to light this week just might be the greatest opportunity you'll ever see! You can make a difference! Please, just think about how many people you could affect in a very real life and death battle!
Well, thank you for your consideration. Good health and God Bless, Charlie. I wish you well in all you do.
Your fan, S
P.S. I suppose your cast mates hear all the time that they are all loved dearly but you can forgive me for adding my appreciation here too, can't you? You're all great! And to "Berta" please let me add: "Hey, Conchata you are incredibly funny! You are so damned fantastic that it's really a disappointment when an episode doesn't have you in it! Your talent at delivering the lines along with the hilarious wit of your writers makes your role "can't miss" performance. Keep it coming!

Do you think that Charlie Sheen was in so much pain as stated.
Did Charlie Sheen just wanted to get an extra high from injected pain medications at the hospital since his usage of drug's and alcohol wasn't enough. What kind of pain medication's was given to Charlie Sheen during his visit to the emergency room? Did he feel better immediately. Do you think that Charlie Sheen needed to get an injection or other pain medication's since his drug and alcohol content wasn't given him the high that he needed to feel?

I do agree that he needs to go to an inpatient program and get the help he needs - he's in a very bad place in his life. He's obviously surronded by people that love his money and he loves to give it away so these people hang around. Just watch the interview that the porn girl (can't remember her name nor do I want too)gave yesterday where she admits to being paid $5000 to come party at his house, arriving at 11pm and then admits on a televised progam that she had sex with Charlie Sheen that night "but she's not sure how it happend" - PULLLEZZZZZ, then she tells the world that following sex he wrote her a check for $30,000 (must have been one hell of a blow job). The girl was so stupid ... she didn't even know what "Opportunistic" meant (cracked me up). Oh and lets not forget how she used the word "extremity" "the extremety of the situation" ... can't stop laughing about how stupid she was. No wonder she's a porn girl she's to stupid to be anything else. Okay... I just had to let that out. :)

I have HAD it with Charlie Sheen!!

It's a shame what's he's doing to a TV show that has been a favorite to so many people (myself included for a while), not to mention how he's putting into jeopardy the future of his fellow actors. ---- He is a disgrace as a supposed "adult", and a terrible role model to young boys. I can't believe he's the highest paid actor on TV. He's not even acting. He's just playing out for all to see his terribly dangerous, completely irresponsible, out of contol way of life.

I for one will NO LONGER watch the show. --- Doing so is "enabling" his disgusting behavior! --- Grow Up, Charlie, or lose fame, fortune, future - (and join the ranks of Tom Cruise and Mel Gibson)!!!

May I suggest others boycott the show also. The only way we the public can express our disapproval is my hitting them in the pocketbook (i.e. Tom Cruise and Mel Gibson), ---- That might finally wake him up!!

To CBS, don't continue to enable him. ---- You are the greatest enabler of all by paying him an exorbinant sum, while closing your eyes to his off-screen impact on the public -- young people particularly. Show responsible media citizenship, and take him off the air.--- Keep the show on, if you like, write him out, or as going to rehab to straighten himself out. Then if you need to, write him back in if he ever gets his act together. Falls off the wagon again, back he goes to rehab, or jail. ---- Present the picture that he can't lead this kind of life forever with no repercussions.

carlos,

My second husband and I also had problems stemming from drugs and infidelity.
It got to the point that the state put a no contact order.
Long story short, I was unable to be there for him. He
continued to use and over dosed in may 2010, he died.
Since he was living alone neither me or our children were around to get him help.
He didn't leave us broke, but out of all the men in the world his children only had one man for a dad. Now, it's just us three.
Despite us getting on like dog poop, I will miss him everyday and my children will never have a father ever again.
Hope you are well.
Sometimes it is impossible to quit, however it is possible to function and be happy with just a wee bit of whatever.
Just when one notices it is a wee bit more, quit, regroup and then dial it down.
We all love to see you on the screen and you work gives us pleasure.
Get better and stay well, we all need you.
Kar

If I do not watch anything else on TV during the week, I always make sure I watch Two and Half Men, the same with my brother-in-law. We love the laughs and great acting.

As my nephew told me once, you pay for it either way. If you pay for a prostitute well, at least you know what you are getting and don’t have to waste time. Taking someone to dinner and a movie you are still spending the money, but the results may not be what you want. As for Porn that is not illegal folks! And having a porn star in your home or at a party, last time I checked that is legal, too!

If people paid more attention to their own lives the world would be better off...however, at least Charlie is getting publicity from the good and the bad gossip or facts. What Charlie does on his own time...is not a deciding factor in whether I watch a show or movie. He is Charlie Sheen.

Get well, Charlie.

Hello Mr. Sheen I would call you Charlie, but I'm not a close personal friend. I'm posting this because I know partying is fun, but it can result in death. Were all going to be dead someday. But I don't need an actor like you that I like to end up like some of our other falling actors that have been in your same shoes. Screw the media. I believe in your heart you have enough talent to take care of your problem. Your couple years younger than me, but I guess that doesn't mean anything. Have fun doing what you're doing and entertain me and my wife, moderation, but everybody needs reverse polarity. Everybody has to deviate, escalate and elevate from the norm. Just make sure it doesn't stop your heart. Devoted fans. Ken and Jacqueline from Michigan
