Charlie Sheen has just filed a lawsuit against Warner Bros. and Two and a Half Men co-creator Chuck Lorre for $100 million plus punitive damages
Warner Bros. fired Sheen from the show Monday, saying, “After careful consideration, Warner Bros. Television has terminated Charlie Sheen’s services on ‘Two and a Half Men,’ effective immediately.”
In his lawsuit, Sheen is demanding he get paid for the 8 episodes of Two and a Half Men that were canceled and is also suing on behalf of the rest of the show’s cast and crew.
Sheen’s lawyer Marty Singer writes in the lawsuit, “Chuck Lorre, one of the richest men in television who is worth hundreds of millions of dollars, believes himself to be so wealthy and powerful that he can unilaterally decide to take money away from the dedicated cast and crew of the popular television series, ‘Two and a Half Men,’ in order to serve his own ego and self-interest, and make the star of the Series the scapegoat for Lorre’s own conduct.”
Singer claims Warner Bros. fired Charlie when he was sick, and that’s a violation of State and federal law.
