According to his rep, Charlie Sheen has entered rehab as "a preventative measure."
The associate wouldn't elaborate on this reason and we may know why: sources say Sheen is trying to prevent a further relapse into cocaine and alcohol.
RadarOnline.com claims the Two and a Half Men star has fallen back into the dangerous habits that led to a pair of previous stints in treatment centers. For the sake of his family, Sheen had no choice but to step away from his sitcom for a few weeks.
“He loves his children and ultimately that’s what convinced him to get help,” an insider said.
Friends say the Christmas Day confrontation that has led to charges against Sheen was fueled by a bender both he and wife Brooke Mueller were on. Each had been partaking in drugs and alcohol that night, allegedly.
“But the partying didn’t stop there. He’s used coke and been drinking many, many other times since then," the source said, even adding that Sheen got high with Mueller the night before she went into rehab.
It's unclear what the future now holds for this couple, but this much in undeniable: Two and a Half Men is incredibly lame and unfunny.
