Charlie Sheen was taken to hospital on Tuesday, October 26 after he was reportedly found drunk and half-naked in the Plaza hotel, New York City. And his ex-wife Denise Richards told Joy Behar that she helped transporting him to New York Columbia Presbyterian Hospital.
"I did help him at the hospital," Denise, who reportedly stayed in a separate room in the same hotel with Charlie, said. The "Blonde and Blonder" actress, however, refused to give further detail about the matter. Instead, she revealed that she is a lot more concerned about her two daughters with Charlie.
"My daughters are five and six years old," Denise said. "And they're at an age when they can start to understand, they have no idea what went on and a lot of... our stuff happened when they were much younger, which I'm so grateful for."
Meanwhile, Charlie's rep told People that the "Two and a Half Men" star has been released from the medical center. "Charlie Sheen has been discharged from a hospital in N.Y. and is returning to L.A. today. Everything else is speculation."
Charlie was found half-naked and passed out on the hotel room bed with a naked woman who was identified as an escort at 2 A.M. on Tuesday, Life & Style Magazine reported. "She was fearing for her life and was naked," said a source. "Charlie was incoherent but started screaming slurs at the cops. They recognized him immediately and gave him two options: they could take him to the hospital or take him down to the station. Charlie chose the hospital."
The source went on saying that Denise and her daughters were staying in a separate room for a family vacation. The source recalled, "His two daughters were sleeping in the next room. Denise had to go with the cops and leave the girls with a nanny. She looked distraught."
Charlie, who was only a week away from completing his probation, exited the hotel at around 2:30 A.M. "The paramedics were heard calling it an overdose," another eyewitness told the site. "But he was definitely awake before leaving the hotel as he made the choice to go there and not the jail."
People further reported that Charlie was removed from the scene "for alcohol abuse and psychological evaluation" and considered an "aided case," meaning no arrest was made. Sources said as quoted by New York Post that Charlie told cops he was drinking and had snorted cocaine before flipping out.
However, the actor's rep insisted that Charlie was taken to hospital for allergic reaction to medication. "What we are able to determine is that Charlie had an adverse allergic reaction to some medication and was taken to the hospital, where is expected to be released tomorrow," the rep explained earlier.
