Charlie Sheen has voluntarily entered a rehabilitation centre, a decision that is putting his top-rated CBS sitcom on production hiatus.
Publicist Stan Rosenfield said on Friday the star of CBS’ Two and a Half Men was entering an undisclosed facility and is grateful to all who have expressed their concern for him.
No additional information, including the name or location of the rehab centre, was provided.
CBS, production company Warner Bros Television and executive producer Chuck Lorre said Sheen’s decision to seek rehab has prompted a halt on production of Two and a Half Men.
The actions came about after the troubled Sheen was treated at a hospital on Thursday for severe stomach pains.
His publicist said the 45-year-old has a history of hernia problems.
