Chuck Sheen Sues Warner Bros And Chuck Lorre For $100 Million
A few days after being fired from his television show, Charlie Sheen has filed suit against his show’s production company, Warner Bros, and against producer Chuck Lorre, for $100 million.
The suit, filed Thursday morning in Santa Monica Superior Court, charges that Sheen was only fired from the show because he had recently criticized Lorre both on radio and television. Warner Bros., in a letter to Sheen’s attorney Martin Singer, had said 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.

Warner Bros. had no comment on the suit. The studio has indicated that it believes its contract with Sheen calls for arbitration to resolve any differences over the terms of his deal.Click here for reuse options!
