Charlie Sheen–now in the hospital after being rushed there with severe abdominal pain–is in a sad spot. Yes, he’s famous for partying with hookers and strippers and living it up. He’s been in rehab several times and certainly is a drug addict. But a source close to Sheen tells me, surprisingly, that even with all that rehab Sheen has never had an intervention.
“I don’t know who his friends are,” says my observer. “He doesn’t seem to have any. An intervention can’t be your accountant and lawyer. It has to be with meaningful people in your life. I’m not sure who that would be.”
Good question. Sheen seems to have no wing men. Leo has Kevin. Ben and Matt used to have each other. Warren had Jack. But where’s the good buddy in this story?
What a strange, sad story. Sheen’s parents, actor Martin Sheen and his wife Janet, are two of the nicest people you could hope to meet. Emilio Estevez, Charlie’s brother, again, is charming, polite and talented. It’s a little weird that Martin Sheen, a political activist and a take charge guy, has never organized a family intervention. But you never know what goes on inside a family. Think of “Ordinary People.” No one can be judged, but still…
So far today, Sheen hasn’t gone in for any kind of surgery. Reports are that he partied hard last night, and an ambulance was called to his home in Los Angeles at dawn. He remains in the emergency room. TMZ, if you believe them, says he had a “briefcase full of cocaine” delivered to the house.
Sheen, 45, has a grown, married daughter who’s 26 years old. He has two kids with Denise Richards, and two more with Brooke Mueller. He’s been married three times. He once dated Kelly Preston, and accidentally shot her — with a gun– in the arm. The wound required stitches only, thank goodness.
