Charlie Sheen headed off to rehab yesterday, according to multiple reports. The Two And A Half Men star has been under fire for returning to work on the hit sitcom despite his felony charge following a violent argument with wife Brooke Mueller and rumors of alcohol and cocaine abuse (Mueller entered her third rehab clinic in a month earlier this week). “He’s used coke and been drinking many, many other times since [Christmas],” a source told Radar, “He loves his children and ultimately that’s what convinced him to get help.”
In an odd twist, TMZ says ex-wife Denise Richards attempted to intervene by calling a show executive and asking them to confront Sheen. But apparently the star had already missed two days of work, inspiring plenty of concern on set. With his rep calling the rehab visit a “preventative measure,” Sheen may return to Two And A Half Men in two weeks to complete the season.
