Charlie Sheen Files $100 Million Lawsuit Against Warner Bros.

SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) — Charlie Sheen is suing Warner Bros. and the executive producer of “Two and a Half Men” for $100 million.

   The lawsuit filed Thursday in a Santa Monica court alleges production was halted on the CBS sitcom to punish Sheen.

   Warner Bros. Television had put the show on hiatus to allow Sheen time to seek therapy, then halted production for the season after Sheen launched tirades at executive producer Chuck Lorre. Sheen was fired from “Two and a Half Men” this week, leaving the top-rated sitcom’s future in doubt.

   Sheen’s lawsuit alleges that Warner Bros. bowed to Lorre’s desire to punish Sheen, and that the producer and Warners conspired to blame the actor for causing production to stop.

   The suit also was filed on behalf of the sitcom’s crew, which was put out of work.

   Warner Bros. declined to comment on the suit.

    Cover the Nancy Grace lawsuit of $150 million dollar lawsuit too because she just got sued plus she just settled another lawsuit after she admitted to causing the actual death of a victim she badgered to death.

    I believe Chuck Lorre got angry at what Charlie said and fired him for his comments. So much for Freedom of speech when you loose your job over comments about your producer.. Chuck Lorre already knew about Charlie Sheens’ drug problem. Therefore Chuck Lorre needed to advise Charlie, to seek rehabilitation right away, before the drug took control and make him sick…therefore, it could cause him to loose his job on Two In A Half Men!!! Instead they fired him over comments that Chuck Lorre didn’t like, instead of his illness on drugs!!! They also could of worked with Charlie in his treatment program before he got so ill and made those comments!!!! Now everyone is out of work and we love the whole crew. They’re all very funny. We pray it will all work out For Everyone. Charlie gets well…Warner Bros. and Chuck Lorre rehire Charlie and finish this season. We also hope for many more seasons, like the “I Love Lucy” episodes!!! Best wishes to all. These drugs cause people to say and do things they would never normally do. We all have to take that into consideration and help them if they are willing to seek help!!!

    Charlie is well, and he keeps winning and winning and winning and winning. He’s my hero. :)

    I believe Charlie is well too. Like Charlie said…”Mind Over Matter”, I agree 100%. Thanks michelle!!!

    Looks like the violated the contract with Charlie and will likely lose the lawsuit even though the contingency written into the contract doesn’t leave enough latitude for a violation by Charlie on that contract. I believe he will keep his winning streak and will get his job back there if he even wants it anymore, plus I believe he will win his lawsuit.

      Well it’s not my call if he wins the lawsuit. I believe Warner Bros/Chuck Lorre fired him because of his comments not his drug addition since they allowed him to work, knowing about his problem. Everybody knows that drugs and or alcohol can be additive and cause you to become very sick. CBS didn’t care about the effects as long as Charlie showed up for work. That’s sick to choose money for your show then your actors health. Charlie is going to stay dwell in fame the rest of his life. I hope he wins the lawsuit and they rehire him so the whole cast isn’t out of work. They will loose the fans if they try to replace Charlie Sheen!!!!!!!!!
