LONDON - Actor Charlie Sheen was rushed to hospital with ’severe abdominal pains’ after a night of partying.
His publicist confirmed that the ‘Two and a Half Men’ star had been taken in for emergency medical care, but he was not yet aware of the state of Sheen’s health.
“All I can tell you is that he was taken to hospital having severe abdominal pains. I don’t know any more than that,” the Daily Mail quoted Stan Rosenfield as saying.
Rosenfield said Sheen had spent the morning “sleeping” inside the hospital’s emergency room but could not confirm whether he was still receiving treatment.
Sheen’s father, actor Martin Sheen, and mother, Janet Templeton, are said to be at his bedside while he receives treatment at the Cedars-Sinai hospital in LA.
US website TMZ claims a hospital source has told them Sheen’s condition is ’serious’.
A Los Angeles City Fire Department spokesman confirmed that they had received a 911 call requesting help at the Beverly Hills address where Sheen lives.
“We had a call to dispatch at 6.35am this morning. This call came into dispatch as a medical run and we responded out there to the location,” the spokesman said.
“We had one of our rescue ambulances, which has two paramedics, and we had one of our engines, which has four firefighters on board and one of our EMS commanders respond to that location.
“We transported at least one individual from that location to an area hospital,” he said.
The 45-year-old actor was carried out of his Los Angeles home on a stretcher and loaded into an ambulance at 7am.
TMZ claims two ‘young women’ left the house at the same time the actor was carried out with a towel partially covering his face.
Neighbours told the website Sheen had thrown ’some sort of party’ on Wednesday night.
The neighbours reportedly heard women inside the actor’s house singing along to Red Hot Chili Peppers songs. The party apparently went on until the early hours. (ANI)
