Blair had complained to show management that Sheen, 47, was a "menace to work with."

Sheen has supposedly tried to recruit Mila Kunis as a replacement.

Anger Management was Sheen’s “comeback” vehicle after his colorful blowout with Chuck Lorre and departure from the CBS hit Two And a Half Men.

An incident with Sheen and a porn star in a New York hotel room triggered the events that led to his separation from the show Lorre created. A lawsuit by Shen ensued – and was settled – before he resurfaced on FX with Anger Management and a lucrative financial deal.

Sheen's character Charlie Goodson is a former baseball player who becomes an anger management therapist. Shawnee Smith plays his ex wife and after Blair  is the most high profile female character.

Sheen has a lucrative financial deal that pays him, according to some reports, nearly $100 million for the show.
