Charlie Sheen Hospitalized

LOS ANGELES (CNN) -- Actor Charlie Sheen was taken by ambulance from his home to a Los Angeles hospital Thursday morning, his representative said.

"All I know is he has severe abdominal pains and went to the hospital," the representative, Stan Rosenfield, told CNN.

There was no initial confirmation of which hospital Sheen was taken to. Celebrity news website TMZ reported he was in the emergency room at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. A spokesman at Cedars-Sinai would neither confirm or deny that Sheen was there.

A Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman confirmed that an emergency medical unit was called to an address off Mulholland Drive, believed to be Sheen's home, at 6:35 a.m. Thursday. A federal privacy law prohibits the release of more information, he said.

This is the second emergency trip to a hospital for Sheen in three months.

He spent several hours in a New York hospital in October after police responded to an early morning call about "an emotionally disturbed person" at The Plaza Hotel, a law enforcement source said at the time. Sheen's representative blamed an "adverse allergic reaction" to a medication for the hospitalization.

Sheen, the son of actor Martin Sheen, is the star of the hit CBS sitcom "Two and a Half Men."
