London: Denise Richards is worried about ex-husband Charlie Sheen, who recently checked himself into a rehab.

The "Two And A Half Men" actor was admitted to Los Angeles` Cedars-Sinai Hospital Thursday after complaining about abdominal pain caused by a hiatal hernia. He was discharged the same day, but Friday, his publicist Stan Rosenfield confirmed that the star is seeking professional treatment for unspecified issues, reports showbizspy.com.

"Denise is heartbroken and fears the day when she gets the call saying Charlie is no longer alive," said a source.

"Charlie surrounds himself with `yes` people. If you say `no` to him, then you are out of his life. Denise is one of the only people that could convince him. It wouldn`t be the first time Denise has begged for him to get the help he needs, but everyone is hoping that this time he listens to her," the source said.

"It is becoming harder and harder for Denise to protect her daughters from what`s going on as they get older. She`s an amazing mother and will not let Charlie leave these two beautiful little angels without a father. If she can`t convince Charlie to get help simply because it`s what he needs, then she hopes he will for the sake of his daughters," the source added.

The former couple has two daughters - Sam J. Sheen, 6, and Lola Rose Sheen, 5.
