You might think that a stint in rehab earlier this year would have made a difference for Charlie Sheen, but you would be wrong! Sheen was apprehended at the Plaza Hotel in New York City. Sheen was reportedly drunk, enraged and completely naked when police found him in his room. Hotel staff had called police to the hotel, where police found Sheen’s room trashed and damaged. When given the option of a jail stay or a hospital visit, Sheen chose the hospital and was released yesterday. He will return to work on Two and a Half Men this week.
But Sheen wasn’t alone in that room. According to Life & Style magazine, an escort was found nude and hiding in the closet in Sheen’s room. His ex-wife Denise Richards was staying in a nearby room with their two daughters, Sam, 6 and Lola, 5 – the former couple was in New York City with their kids for some family bonding. Richards appeared on The Joy Behar Show on CNN last night and discussed the incident.
“I do know what happened and I did help him at the hospital,” Richards told Behar. “My daughters are five and six years old. They’re at an age where they can start to understand. They have no idea what went on.”
Though Richards would not go into details about the incident, she said that she and Sheen have been doing very well.
“We’ve been getting along great for the last year and a half and I’m trying to protect the girls from it as much as possible,” Richards said. “He comes over for dinner, he goes to birthday parties.”
The good news? According to Sheen’s rep, this was all due to an allergic reaction to a medication, and not another chapter in the Charlie Sheen Substance Abuse Saga. Glad we cleared that up! (PopEater, RadarOnline)
