Charlie Sheen

And the REAL STORY is ....

Ear Infection

11/1/2012 10:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen
-- contrary to the buzz that's going around H-Wood -- is NOT hospitalized for drug issues -- he's back on the set of "Anger Management" after battling a nasty ear infection.

Not to say Charlie isn't back to partying hard -- our sources say he's definitely doing that. But here's the deal with C.S. He flew Sam and Lola to NYC Saturday to spend some time with mama Denise Richards, then flew back the next day. That was just enough to trigger an ear infection, which benched Charlie from the set Tuesday.

Charlie is back to work today and at the time of this post he's doing a table read for his show.

BTW, Charlie has ear problems. Charlie had a really bad ear infection last year that was hard to shake.

That's what happens when you stick your ear where it shouldn't go.

How the hell old is Charlie that he's getting ear infections?

Ear problems, including infection, aren't uncommon in people who insufflate narcotics.

Snorting drugs created and handled by unknown people in unknown conditions, using dirty dollar bills, just isn't great for your sinuses.

So no, he wasn't hospitalized for drug use specifically, but his hospitalization was probably drug related in a way.

This guy deserves a real swift kick in the nuts.

The real story is Mark Burg, Martin Singer, and the rest of his dependent serfs are all covering his. There wasn't any flights commercial or private that flew into NYC on Saturday, and I have never seen an adult go to the hospital with an ear infection. Addicts LIE and so do their Hollywood Henchmen. So much will come out one day about Charlie that the general public will not believe. I guarantee you this.
