Charlie Sheen: Friend Insists Actor Hospitalized for Laughing Too Hard
Steve Brodersen says a funny television moment caused the actor to suffer a hernia injury.
One friend of Charlie Sheen has the most unusual reason for the actor's hospitalization on Thursday -- the Two and a Half Men star was laughing too hard.
Steve Brodersen, identified as Sheen's friend by Extra, told the program that Sheen suffered a hernia injury while laughing too hard at the television from his home.
The report continues that Sheen may need surgery as soon as tomorrow to repair the hernia. Brodersen said that Sheen told him from the hospital bed, "I'm not dying."
Sheen was hospitalized on Thursday morning. His rep said at the time that it was due to "severe abdominal pains."
