Charlie Sheen Sues Warner Brothers and Chuck Lorre for $100 Million

by at . Comments

We already knew that Charlie Sheen was ranting and raving mad over his firing from Two and a Half Men. Turns out, he's also suing mad.

The actor has filed a $100 million lawsuit against Warner Brothers and Chuck Lorre, demanding money from the eight axed Two and a Half Men episodes, as well as payment for the cast and crew and punitive damages.

Charlie Sheen Motivational Poster

Writes attorney Marty Singer, in documents obtained by TMZ:

"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 cites a conspiracy between Lorre and the studio that blames Sheen for the cancellation and says they fired his client when he was sick, which is a violation of state and federal law.

Hey, at least he admits Sheen is sick.

Well,you can't fire someone for taking time off to seek help with addiction,however you can fire them if they take time off because of it (as in staying home because they are hungover) or if their behavior is dangerous or they are under the influence at any time while at work. Mental illness is a bit diffrent but unless Sheen had a diagnoses of a mental illness BEFORE he was fired and BEFORE he filed his lawsuit and his employer was made aware of it before all this went down it is a moot point. He can't just run around acting like a wackjob and then use it to his advantage when he got canned. It's not that easy.
He also can't sue for money for the cast and crew of the show. In order to do so he would either have to have signed power of attorney from each and every one of them allowing him to do so (like that will happen!!) or they would all have to join the lawsuit and add themselves as plaintiffs. I can't see where he has a leg to stand on here.

My husband says his life is a male 'fantasy'. Anyway,he has been very entertaining for many years,I just hope noone gets hurt & that he is ok...I really like the guy alot!

the thing about this is legally, Warner Bros can't fire him because his drug problem is considered a mental illness, and you can't fire people based on a mental illness... but, you have to admit you have a problem first... so good luck with that law suit buddy

He just may have a case. To be fairminded, Charlie is saying things he may have to answer to. I love Charlie Sheen however right now he is off his rocker weather due to drug use or not. I pray for his family too, having to see him in this state. It is hard to miss it....

Get a clue, Nicholz, when your "free-time" spills over into your job, then it isn no longer your life you are affect, it is EVERYONE around you. That whole cast and other crew members that have family's are all screw because of another person's drug and booze habit. If he was working anywhere else then he would have been FIRED. HE needs a reality check.
