Well, it’s a nice round number in any case. Very round.
Charlie Sheen’s lawyers have filed a lawsuit against Warner Bros. and Chuck Lorre ….for $100m.
In his suit Sheen claims: “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.”
In addition to Lorre “humiliating, harassing and disparaging” him Sheen says he was fired because he spoke out after Lorre allegedly refused to write.
Later Sheen took to Twitter to boast, “Torpedo away… You corporate Trolls were warned. And now you’ve been served!”
Chuck Lorre’s lawyer Howard Weitzman described the complaint as recklessly false and unwarranted.
“The accusations are simply imaginary,” he said.
“This lawsuit is about a fantasy ‘lottery’ pay-day for Charlie Sheen.
“Chuck Lorre’s concern has been and continues to be about Mr. Sheen’s health.”
Warner Bros., CBS and Chuck Lorre had no comment on the filing. The studio has indicated that it believes its contract with Sheen calls for arbitration to resolve any differences over the terms of his deal.
It has previously noted Sheen was fired because he had become a liability on the show and his erratic off-stage life had started to affect his ability to perform.
Meanwhile tonight’s 7PM Project will have an interview with NOVA’s Scott “Dools” Dooley who this morning said he was also acting alongside Sheen in a short film with military outfits and camouflage paint as part of a “secret mission.”
