Sheen enters rehab

The troubled star, who has a history of drug abuse, is taking time out of filming his hit TV show Two and a Half Men to turn to medical professionals as a “preventative measure”, although further details about his treatment have not been revealed.

In a statement released on Tuesday (23Feb10), Sheen’s spokesperson says,”As a preventative measure, Charlie Sheen has entered a rehabilitation facility. He will take some time off his series Two and a Half Men. He has asked that his privacy be honoured. No further statements are planned.”

Sheen’s admission comes just two days after his wife Brooke Mueller checked into a Los Angeles recuperation centre after a weekend (21Feb10) security breach prompted her to leave the Malibu, California rehab she checked into earlier this month (Feb10).

The couple, which shares 11-month-old twin sons Bob and Max, has been working on rebuilding its marriage following a Christmas Day (25Dec09) bust-up in Aspen, Colorado which led to Sheen’s arrest.

He was subsequently charged with felony menacing, third degree assault and misdemeanour criminal mischief after allegedly threatening Mueller with a knife during the fight.
