Charlie Sheen has checked into a rehab facility and production has been halted on his hit CBS show "Two and a Half Men."
"Charlie Sheen has voluntarily entered an undisclosed rehabilitation center today," his rep Stan Rosenfield tells ET in a statement. He added that the actor is grateful to all who have expressed concern and said Sheen asks that his privacy be respected during this time.
In reaction to the events, a statement by CBS states: "Due to Charlie Sheen's decision to enter a rehabilitation center, CBS, Warner Bros. Television and executive producer Chuck Lorre are placing "Two and a Half Men" on production hiatus. We are profoundly concerned for his health and well-being, and support his decision."
The 45-year-old movie and TV star was rushed to the hospital on Thursday, with his rep saying he suffered from severe abdominal pains.
