Charlie Sheen says he doesn’t need to go back to rehab despite the fact that he started boozing again, is reporting exclusively.

The Two and a Half Men star had a “sober minder” with him on Christmas eve to make sure that he didn’t consume alcohol – but he did anyway.

And now, with his wife Brooke Mueller finally admitting her problem and checking into rehab, Charlie is insistent that he doesn’t need to go to rehab.

EXCLUSIVE: Brooke Mueller's Rehab Won't Stop Prosecution Of Charlie Sheen

“He says he doesn’t have to go,” a source close to the actor told “He drank. But he says he didn’t drink that much.”

But Charlie, who has been through rehab twice, not only drank, he had alcohol in his system at 8:30 am when Brooke called 911 on Christmas day.

“That’s because he was up partying with her at night,” another source close to the situation told “And it’s no accident that he had a sober coach with him. He had a sober coach with him because he started drinking again and his friends and other people close to him are extremely worried.”

Now, however, his people are downplaying the fact that he started boozing again, just as Brooke Mueller’s lawyer recently denied that she was in rehab and didn’t admit that she had a problem.

POLICE AFFIDAVIT From Charlie Sheen’s Arrest

Team Sheen is extremely defensive and publicly aggressive about all reports of Sheen facing rehab. But one thing they haven’t addressed is how Charlie is handling his relapse back into boozing.

In fact, his rep, denying a report that people close to Charlie have told him to go to rehab, said: “He is not going to rehab.”

And that, says one source, is because Charlie is insisting he doesn’t need to go despite the boozing – the same pattern that led him into substance abuse again years ago.
