Charlie Sheen Rushed to ER; Turns Out to Be Food Poisoning

By    |   Wednesday, 10 Jun 2015 06:22 AM

Actor Charlie Sheen was rushed to the emergency room in Los Angeles after complaining of chest pains but it turned out the former "Two and a Half Men" star experienced a "severe case of food poisoning."

Sheen, 49, was enjoying a seafood pasta dish at home on Monday evening when he fell ill, his publicist Jeff Ballard told People magazine, adding that the trip to a hospital emergency room was for precaution.

 


"It was clams, bad clams. Nothing too exciting," said Ballard. "Just to be on the safe side, he went to the hospital. They checked him out, hydrated him and sent him on his way. He was back home in bed 90 minutes later."

TMZ reported, however, that Sheen complained to emergency personnel arriving at his home about chest pains, prompting a rush to the hospital. The celebrity website first wrote that Sheen was treated at his home before it updated its report, adding that the "Anger Management" star was actually transported to a hospital.

Sheen is still known for his epic public meltdown in 2011 during a spat with "Two and a Half Men" creator Chuck Lorre that led to him being replaced on the hit CBS comedy by Ashton Kutcher. He raised eyebrows last month when he told celebrity television show "Extra" that he regretted not "begging" to return to the show.

"Yeah, I should have been a little more humble, more regretful, shouldn't have attacked them like I did and I probably should have begged for my job back," said Sheen. "Beg is a color I don't wear well, I probably should have requested my job back…I think that what went down was fixable and I made it irreparable."

Without Sheen, ratings for "Two and a Half Men," tumbled from 14.5 million viewers to 9.1 million by 2014, reported Business Insider.com, and the show wrapped up its final season earlier this year.

Sheen went on to star in the FX series "Anger Management," based on the 2003 Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler movie, and it lasted two seasons and 100 episodes, wrapping up in 2014, according to E! News.

"It was an environment of compassion, of creativity of love," Sheen told "Extra" about his experience with the "Anger Management" series. "Nobody yelled."
