After months of refusing to address his relapse into boozing, Charlie Sheen has entered rehab his publicist said.
RadarOnline.com reported just days ago that people close to Charlie have been urging him to enter rehab and he was refusing. At that time his people denied that anyone was urging him to go in.
His publicist Stan Rosenfeld released this statement Tuesday:
“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 honored. No further statements are planned. “
Sheen’s wife Brooke Mueller is also in rehab.
Sheen and Mueller were both boozing before she called police at 8:34 am Christmas and said he held a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her. They both had alcohol in their bodies but Sheen has refused to admit he had a problem.
Mueller and Sheen had been out the night before and Sheen had a “sober coach” with him when he started drinking! The reason he had a sober coach, RadarOnline.com learned exclusively, is that he had already relapsed into boozing and family and friends had confronted him.
When RadarOnline.com reported on February 17 that Charlie was being told to go to rehab by people close to him Team Sheen loudly denied it, even stating: “He is not going to rehab.”
But those denials were issued simply because Charlie was in denial, a source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com. “He wouldn’t go into rehab even though it was obvious he needed to,” the source said.
Team Sheen also has to be very careful because an order by the Colorado judge overseeing Charlie’s domestic violence case prohibits him from drinking alcohol.
But, Charlie has been boozing for months, RadarOnline.com has learned. And the night before Brooke went into rehab he was with her while she partied.
