In an attempt to quell the revolt in the wasteland CHARLIE SHEEN has filed a $100 million lawsuit against his ex-boss CHUCK LORRE and Warner Bros. TV after they fired him from hit show.
RadarOnline.com has learned that the disgruntled star is fighting back and is also suing on behalf of the rest of the currently unemployed cast and crew.
In the lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Sheen’s 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 as well as full pay for the currently unemployed cast and crew.
Sheen’s attorney also alleged that Lorre wanted to drop Men so that he could concentrate on his other series The Big Bang Theory and Mike & Molly.
