Charlie Sheen

Checks into Rehab

1/28/2011 7:54 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen voluntarily checked himself in to an undisclosed rehab facility earlier today ... and his show "Two and a Half Men" has been placed on indefinite "hiatus" while he undergoes treatment.

0111-charlie-sheen-bn-4-credit
"Two and a Half Men" producers released a statement saying, "Due to Charlie Sheen’s decision to enter a rehabilitation center, CBS, Warner Bros. Television and executive producer Chuck Lorre are placing “Two and a Half Men” on production hiatus."

The statement continues, "We are profoundly concerned for his health and well-being, and support his decision."

Sheen's publicist tells us, "He is most grateful to all who have expressed their concern."

As TMZ previously reported, Sheen had a briefcase of cocaine delivered to his mansion during a 36-hour bender earlier this week ... and was hospitalized early Thursday morning for a hiatal hernia.

28. Am I the only one who doesn't think rock bottom is sitting on the floor of your mansion with hot chicks everywhere doing coke and watching porn?

Even with that said, Sheen obviously did need to go to rehab. I hope the suits/execs forced him to go by giving him sort of an ultimatium. I imagine that the network threatening to fire him is the only thing that would have gotten him to go. Without some sort of legal ramification hanging over his head, I don't know if whatever treatment he recieves now is going to hold up long term.

Still, this is better than nothing. I like Lindsay Lohan's chances of long-term recovery better than Sheen's at this juncture, because the consequences of failure are much greater for Lindsay, which, in turn, provides far more incentive. Nothing is guarenteed in either case, however, regardless of the consequences.

"We are profoundly concerned for his health and well-being, and support his decision."
Translation, "Since this man is worth millions of dollars to us, we are forcing him into rehab, before he kills his dumb self."

Hey Now    

An unconfirmed unidentified anonymous source tells me that Charlie Sheen actually checked into rehab after reading the comments that were posted on TMZ. He evidently was more stunned by the vile comments he read here than by anything he had done during the past few days with the coke & hookers.

My source tells me that he was overheard saying "F**k those jealous loser morons on TMZ." before he got into a dark SUV headed to a rehab facility.

But again - I cannot confirm this.

The RAILS get longer and the ROCKS in the pipe are getting bigger!
Charlie you got lucky this time but your next Bender could be the one that takes you over the edge.

Hope you don't hit rock bottom.

But then again life could be boring without Porn, Drugs and Alcohol. Im just saying...

See Charlie, did you even stop and think about how your sick actions would effect your fellow actors and show?? NO, you didn't.
Rehab is not going to help this looser. He just needs to go away and never come back. No one gives two crack pipes about him anyway!
Good example you set for your children s*** bag!
