Charlie Sheen finally went into rehab nearly six hours after his representatives announced that he had checked in, RadarOnline.com is reporting exclusively.
Despite a public statement issued to the media on Tuesday afternoon that Sheen had checked into rehab, RadarOnline.com was first to report that the Two and a Half Men actor did not check in, and was dragging his feet.
Sheen did not check in until approximately midnight EST, RadarOnline.com learned exclusively – even after other media reports claimed he was already in.
Sheen’s reps were caught off guard as he waited hours, making many around him nervous. The official statement said he was going in as a “preventative measure.”
But Sheen resisted checking in, even after Team Sheen told the world he was already in rehab. It was only after RadarOnline.com reported late Tuesday night that Sheen was AWOL from rehab that he finally packed up and headed into the facility.
RadarOnline.com exclusively reported last week that Sheen was told by people close to him to go into rehab. His reps vigorously denied that report. And they were embarrassed again by Sheen not going into rehab after they announced he was already in.
“Charlie didn’t want to go,” a source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com.
Sheen hid out for nearly six hours after his reps announced he had entered rehab. And when RadarOnline.com uncovered he was still not in rehab, people close to him scrambled to get him to check in.
Finally, on Tuesday night, he packed up and checked in.
Sheen’s wife Brooke Mueller is also in rehab.
