Over the past year, Charlie Sheen has been dealing with some serious professional and personal issues. Both worlds seem to overlap with each other and now they’ve finally come to ahead. According to several reports, the actor has entered rehab, which will cause his hit TV show “Two and a Half Men” to go on hiatus.
According to Sheen’s publicist Stan Rosenfield, “Charlie Sheen has voluntarily entered an undisclosed rehabilitation center today,” the rep said in a statement Friday. “He is most grateful to all who have expressed their concern.” Pending his return, production on “Two and a Half Men,” will cease.
CBS also released a statement reacting to Sheen’s decision, offering their support for the actor despite the stalling of the show.
“Due to Charlie Sheen’s decision to enter a rehabilitation center, CBS, Warner Bros. Television and executive producer Chuck Lorre are placing Two and a Half Men on production hiatus. We are profoundly concerned for his health and well-being, and support his decision”
This news follows earlier reports that claimed Sheen was being hospitalized for “abdominal pain.” We’re not sure how many of you still watch his show but if you do, sorry. Get ready for reruns or a mid-season replacement.
In all seriousness, we hope Sheen finally gets the help he needs.
What do you think of CBS’ decision to shut down Two and a Half Men? Could they have worked around it?
