Charlie Sheen in ER after bender
Drug and porn-star loving actor Charlie Sheen was rushed by ambulance to a Los Angeles hospital from his home Thursday with severe abdominal pains after reportedly partying hard for about 36 hours with a "briefcase full of cocaine" and five women, TMZ.com reported.
Sources told the website that the “Two and a Half Men” star suffered a hernia in his stomach, which causes acid and food to back up into the esophagus” and triggers "horrible, horrendous pain."
Sheen's publicist, Stan Rosenfield, said Sheen, 45, was sleeping in the Cedars-Sinai Hospital emergency room Thursday. Sheen's dad, actor Martin Sheen, and his mother, Janet Templeton, and ex-wife Denise Richards were at the hospital, said a hospital source, who added that, “It's serious."
TV’s highest-paid actor reportedly drank and ingested a lot of coke, which was delivered in bricks in a designer briefcase to his home, a source told TMZ. The source added that porn-star Kacey Jordan, 22, was invited to the bacchanal by a third-party. But at 6:35 a.m. someone called 911 and the party was over for good time Charlie.
Sheen has been to the hospital three times in the past three months. Last October he trashed a suite at the Plaza Hotel after an alleged drug and alcohol binge while porn star Capri Anderson, 22, locked herself in the bathroom.
CBS declined to comment yesterday, but its stock dipped about two percent Thursday.
CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler said last week that the network, which airs Sheen’s show, has “a high level of concern” about his health, but added: “On a professional level, he does his job and he does it well. This show is a hit.”
