Charlie Sheen has filed a $100 million lawsuit against his ex-boss and Warner Bros. after they fired him from his hit show.
RadarOnline.com has learned that the disgruntled star is fighting back and in a surprising turn of events, he is also suing on behalf of the rest of the cast and crew.
In the lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Sheen’s feisty attorney, Marty Singer, lashes out at the show’s producer, insisting his client has been made a ‘scapegoat’ for his actions.
“Defendant 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 devoid to take money away from the dedicated cast and crew of the popular television series, Two And A Half Men in order to service his own ego and self interest, and make the star of the series the scapegoat for Lorre’s own conduct.”
Sheen – who earned $2 million an episode – is demanding to be paid for the eight remaining episodes of the season and Singer alleges the cancellation is based on
“Warner Bros. capitulating to Lorre’s egotistical desire to punish Mr. Sheen …”
The lawsuit also claims that Warner Bros. renegotiated the troubled star’s contract when he was facing felony charges for allegedly assaulting his ex-wife Brooke Muelller.
