Actor Charlie Sheen has been admitted to hospital with severe abdominal pains, his publicist said.
Stan Rosenfield gave no other details of the 45-year-old star’s condition.
Celebrity website TMZ.com said Sheen was taken to hospital in Los Angeles by ambulance following an early-morning emergency call.
The Emmy-nominated star of CBS comedy Two And A Half Men has been dogged by personal problems and apparent health issues.
This is his third stay in hospital in as many months.
Last week, CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler said network officials “have a high level of concern” about his off-camera behaviour.
