For Charlie Sheen, the roller coaster ride of fame just doesn’t seem to end. But it does look like it’s heading for a cliff.
The “Two and a Half Men” star, wearing a towel over his face, was taken out of his Los Angeles home around 7 a.m. by stretcher and transported to L.A.’s Cedars-Sinai Hospital for treatment, according to TMZ.com.
His publicist, Stan Rosenfield, says Sheen was suffering from “severe abdominal pains.” But what else could he say?
Hospital tests were conducted, but no results have been made public, although the Los Angeles Times is reporting the actor has suffered a hiatal hernia.The condition occurs when a portion of diaphragm ruptures, allowing the stomach to enter it. Patients can experiences no symptoms of the developing condition until it becomes severe, at which point it is extremely painful.
I’m sure Charlie can find something to dull the pain – like a bottle of scotch or a porn star.
Members of Sheen’s family, including parents Martin Sheen and Janet Templeton and ex-wife Denise Richards, were at his side, according to reports.
By the way, Martin Sheen is reported to be writing a book with his other son Emilio Estevez focussing on the journey of a father and son working together in Hollywood. The jokes haven’t stopped since the announcement
And while Sheen was partying Wednesday night, his costar Jon Cryer dropped by Conan O’Brien‘s late-night talker.
“I’m checking TMZ, as I do every day, to know if I have to go to work at all,” he said.
