Charlie Sheen is attempting to get some revenge on the “corporate trolls” who have messed with him and his career. The 45-year-old actor is suing Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre and Warner Bros. for $100 million.
In the lawsuit, Charlie is demanding he get paid for the eight canceled Two and a Half Men episodes, and he’s also suing on behalf of the cast and crew of the hit CBS sitcom, plus punitive damages, for a grand total of $100,000,000 TMZ reports.
The court documents, obtained by TMZ, begin with Charlie’s lawyer, Marty Singer, stating the following:”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 alleges in the suit that “Warner Bros. capitulating to Lorre’s egotistical desire to punish Mr. Sheen …” and that a conspiracy existed between Chuck and Warner Bros. to blame Charlie for the termination of the hit CBS sitcom.
It indicates Warner Bros. renegotiated Charlie’s contract when he was facing felony charges in Aspen, which the powerhouse production company though may land Charlie in jail.
Singer also claims that Warner Bros. fired Charlie when he was sick, and that’s a violation of State and federal law.
He alleges, Chuck hated Charlie and wanted him off the show, making the decision to cancel the final eight episodes before Charlie even lashed out at Chuck.
Charlie also Tweeted about his big move, writing,
Whose side are you on? Maybe Charlie will calm down now since he is headed to court!
