Charlie Sheen Sues Chuck Lorre, Warner Bros. for $100 Million
Charlie Sheen means business. The actor just filed a $100 million lawsuit against Warner Bros. and Chuck Lorre for firing him from his hit CBS sitcom, “Two and a Half Men,” TMZ reports.
Sheen spoke out on the lawsuit via — what else — his Guinness World Record-setting Twitter account, writing, “You corporate Trolls were warned. And now you”ve been served!”
After Warner Bros. gave Sheen the ax via letter earlier this week, the star told “Access Hollywood Live” he felt the bigwigs involved were cowards.
“These guys are such yellow cockroaches that they didn”t even have the decency to call me,” said Sheen, indicating that he received a text with the news. “I put five bill in their cheap suit pockets. It”s just deplorable.”
The lawsuit, according to TMZ, is also on behalf of the “Men” crew.
Sheen”s lawyer, Marty Singer, wrote in the suit, “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 also claims Warner Bros. violated federal and state laws by firing Sheen when he was sick.
