Remember when it was announced on Friday that troubled actor Charlie Sheen had checked into rehab? Turns out it didn’t happen quite that fast. But now, as of Saturday, Charlie IS in rehab, according to his manager.
“[He] is currently in rehab,” his manager, Mark Burg, tells PEOPLE. “He was bombarded by every rehab in the country looking for his wallet and publicity, and he has been deciding where to go. With the help of friends and family, he finally agreed to go and went into rehab on Saturday.”
The name of the rehab hasn’t been announced, but one place Charlie did NOT go to was Promises in Malibu (where he’s been before).
“Charlie never drove to Malibu,” he says, “and Promises was not an option.”
Charlie’s manager says the ‘Two and a Half Men’ star is focused on getting sober.
“Charlie knows he has work to do and he is looking forward to regaining his sobriety. [He] hopes to be back at work in the near future but there is no time frame. Regaining his sobriety is what is most important.”
It’s good to hear that!
