(LOS ANGELES) — Charlie Sheen missed time from work this week due to an ear infection, according to TMZ.com — and not because he partied too hard for his own good.
There are rumors floating around that he’s dealing with drug issues again, but TMZ reports he suffered an ear infection after flying to New York and then back to California over the weekend. He flew to the East Coast with the two daughters he has with Denise Richards so the kids could spend time with her.
TMZ says Sheen was absent from the set of his sitcom, Anger Management, on Tuesday, but was feeling well enough to report for duty on Thursday.
TMZ notes that the actor has been “partying hard” lately, but it apparently wasn’t the reason why he was MIA on the Anger Management set.
