Today's Evil Beet Gossip

Charlie Sheen is in Rehab. Duh.

Charlie Sheen bit the bullet this week and checked himself in to a rehabilitation center as a “preventative measure”. The actor, whose wife is currently trying to beat a crack addiction, is said to be very stressed by the domestic violence charges looming over his head and was afraid he’d fall off the wagon harder than ever before. People in Charlie’s crew are saying that this is legit, though. Supposedly he’s not hitting the bottle again and he just wants to make sure that he doesn’t mess his family up any more than they already are.

A friend of Charlie’s spoke to People Magazine and said, “Charlie is stressed. He’s tired. The kids are on his mind. Brooke’s on his mind. A lot of things are on his mind. He didn’t want to get a place where he had the urge to get high. He’s not using and he doesn’t want to. He felt like he needed to get away from negative influences around him and clear his head, rest and take a short break.”

If that’s the truth, that sounds like it’s just about the most mature thing that he ever did.

  • Nice spin, and a good preventative measure, if true; however, Radar Online is reporting that Charlie Sheen has been dabbling anew in cocaine and booze and realizes that his substance abuse woes need to be addressed for the sake of his children, his marriage, himself, and his career (not necessarily in that order).

  • Sounds like this couple is doing everything their lawyers tell them to in order to make the Christmas debacle go away.

  • My kids are on my mind. My ex is on my mind. I’m tired and need a rest too…can I go to rehab to get away from the negative influences in my life? Geez…spoiled brat Hollywood types.

  • He doesn’t care about his kids or he would have quit many rehabs ago. His older kids are still as tortured as they ever were.

    • I’m fortunate– the only thing I’ve ever been addicted to is cigarettes (yeah, I know they are really bad; but it could be a lot worse). But I do know people who suffer from drug addiction. It is something you struggle with your whole life; a constant battle. I feel for people in the throes of addiction and I don’t think their addiction makes them love their families any less. I think it makes them broken and weak people, pitiful people, really.

  • This makes me wonder if those kids were born addicted to crack. If she’s been using recently (and breastfeeding) those kids were also exposed to drugs. Hmmm….hope CPS checks up on that.

      • Yeah, douche is right. Why would CPS get involved with two parents that are admitted crack and cocaine addicts. Leave their kids alone!!!!

      • Did you just read what you fucking wrote? “Why would CPS get inoveld with parents that are admitted crack and cocaine addicts” Gee, if I knew that babies were exposed to a mom who is a fucking CRACK ADDICT who was actively using in the home with her children and could have possibly used while pregnant, I would think that Child Protective Services would be interested in it.

      • Now You Happy?’s response was dripping with sharp sarcasm. It would have been difficult to have made it much more obvious.

      • if this was meant to be sarcastic, I sincerely apologize. Although, to be honest, there are people out there who probably really feel this way. I’ve seen some insane comments on this site about what’s acceptable parenting and what isn’t. Sorry if I bit your head off.

  • His daughter looks absolutely miserable in his arms. She is crying in every picture I’ve ever seen of them together. Poor kid.
