Charlie Sheen 911 Call Made by 'Real Housewives' Neighbors
Adrienne Maloof-Nassif and Dr. Paul Nassif were contacted by someone at the "Two and a Half Men" actor's house before he was rushed to the hospital.
Charlie Sheen got some help from his famous neighbors before being rushed to the hospital Thursday morning with "several abdominal pains."
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars Adrienne Maloof-Nassif and Dr. Paul Nassif told People in a statement that they got a call early Thursday from someone at Sheen's home.
"We did receive a call from Charlie's house this morning, asking for medical assistance and advice and immediately insisted the caller dial 911," the couple said. "Dr. Nassif also immediately called 911."
Sheen reportedly was taken out of his home on a stretcher and loaded into an ambulance at 7 a.m. and transported to Cedars-Sinai Hospital in L.A.
"As longtime friends, we are obviously very concerned about his well-being," Nassif and Maloof-Nassif said in their statement. "Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family right now, and we wish him a speedy recovery."
The incident came hours after Sheen's Two and a Half men costar Jon Cryer told Conan O'Brien of Sheen's erratic personal life: "It's always a little weird because like the stuff you hear is just unbelievable. I mean like... I'm checking TMZ, as I do everyday, to know if I have to go to work at all."
On Thursday, 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.
Sheen's hospitalization won't affect production on his CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men; it's on hiatus this week.
