A rep for Charlie Sheen is slamming a new claim that the actor is being urged by loved ones to go to rehab for alcohol abuse.

"He is not going to rehab," the rep tells, adding, "Who told him to go to rehab? Correct answer: no one."

Wednesday's headline follows Tuesday's rehab reports regarding Sheen's wife, Brooke Mueller.

Anonymous sources have claimed to other media outlets that Mueller, 32, checked into a drug rehab last week for alleged alcohol and crack-cocaine abuse. Reps for Mueller could not be reached for comment by

Sheen, 44, was formally charged Feb. 8 for assaulting his wife in a Dec. 25 incident. (He allegedly put a knife to her throat and threatened to kill her while the two were vacationing in Aspen, Colorado.) The actor was charged with felony menacing, third-degree assault and criminal mischief, and could face up to three years if convicted.

Yet at the same hearing, a judge modified a protective order that forbade the couple from communicating. Sheen and Mueller had both requested to be allowed contact in order to fix their marriage.

The couple, who wed in 2006, welcomed twin sons Bob and Max in March 2009.
