Sheen ‘looking forward to regaining his sobriety’

The Two and a Half Men star checked into an undisclosed facility on Saturday (29Jan11), just days after he was admitted to Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Hospital to be treated for a hiatal hernia. Reports suggested Sheen had been partying prior to his health scare.

Sheen’s manager, Mark Burg, has now spoken out to reveal the star is willingly seeking help for his problems, telling People.com, “He was bombarded by every rehab in the country looking for his wallet and publicity, and he has been deciding where to go. With the help of friends and family, he finally agreed to go and went into rehab on Saturday.”

Production on Sheen’s hit sitcom has been suspended while the actor continues his treatment, and Burg reveals there is currently no timetable for getting the star back to work.

He adds, “Charlie knows he has work to do and he is looking forward to regaining his sobriety. Charlie hopes to be back at work in the near future but there is no time frame. Regaining his sobriety is what is most important.”

Sheen’s ex-wife Denise Richards, the mother of his two daughters, has since thanked fans for their well wishes and urged caution over rumours swirling online.

In a series of posts on Twitter.com, she writes, “Thank you so much for you (sic) kind and supportive messages… it means a lot… thank u… I love how certain media outlets say my ‘friends’ are speaking to the press… all B.S. (bulls**t). Nothing has been discussed, this is a private matter.”
