The gloves are off and Charlie Sheen is preparing for full out war as he continues his tirade against Chuck Lorre, creator of Two And A Half Men.
Reports surfaced Friday that producers will not be paying Sheen for the balance of the season of his hit show, after CBS announced Thursday they were halting production due to Sheen’s “conduct and condition”.
Not so fast though! Sheen is adamant that he WILL be paid, telling O’Brien: “Defeat is not an option. They know what they did was wrong they are in absolute breach [of contract] I did nothing wrong. They have picked a fight with the wrong guy. Defeat is not an option.”
Declaring: “I expressed an opinion, I have the first amendment to support me and I have an army marching behind me, to quote Eminem.”
Obviously angry at producers as well as the network, Sheen points out that: “I put a billion dollars in the studio’s pockets and I put half a billion dollars in Chuck’s pocket. I should of been walking in to sandwiches, massages and h**d jobs. Yeah, I said it!”
Sheen claims he kept his side of the bargain when approached by producers expressing concerns over his recent antics: “Look, they said ‘change your life’ and I did, in like an hour. They might just be missing the old guy that was turning up every day and hitting gold.”
When asked if he had anything to say to the crew on the cancelled show, Sheen advised: “Be patient, get focused, we are at war. There are ways to beat to these clowns.”
Charlie also says that he just got to breaking point after show producers “kept getting up into my grill, kept tell me how to live my personal life.. I’m saying ‘back off back off’ and they wouldn’t.”
Going on to explain: “I’m the type of guy who doesn’t hassle anybody…I think everybody’s got a black belt and a gun..so..I don’t get in anybody’s business.”
But, Sheen says: “I don’t interfere in people’s lives…I kept asking for that respect and I couldn’t get it, I couldn’t get it.” Then, referring to Lorre and his collaborator Lee Arohnson, “These guys are a couple of AA Nazis and just blatant hypocrites.
“They just do not practice what they preach it’s so transparent and so sad.”
And it’s not just show producers Sheen is railing against – he also said he is done with CBS CEO Les Moonves.
“Moonves came to my house and had a man to man request,” Sheen claims. “I honored it but he’s not honoring his part.”
Sheen said he worked in a “toxic environment for eight years” being treated like “an unwelcome relative given cold coffee every night a nine o’clock.”
And fighting back at rumors Sheen is under the influence, he vowed that he has a “sober, clear mind” and he will “100% line up for a test, in front of anyone, only entrance fee is water.” Going on to explain: “You can’t make a claim like that unless you are sitting on absolute gold.”
As RadarOnline.com previously reported Sheen has accepted a challenge from us and has agreed to undergo a drug test on Monday to prove he is clean and sober.
In the meantime, don’t expect things to settle down anytime soon. Sheen advises his fans, and detractors alike to: “Find the most comfortable seat in the house, lean back and watch – it’s about to get really gnarly.”
