Charlie Sheen has spent the last three months doing everything he can to force Warner Brothers and Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre to fire him, and now that they have, he's suing them for $100 million plus punitive damages.
Sheen, who made $1.2 million per episode, is demanding he be compensated for the 8 cancelled episodes from the current season -- and is also suing on behalf of the sitcom's crew.
His attorney Marty Singer slams Lorre for making Sheen "the scapegoat" in the ongoing war over the series. "[Lorre] believes himself to be so wealthy and powerful that he can unilaterally decide to take money away from the dedicated cast and crew ...in order to serve his own ego and self-interest."
And Sheen of course turned to twitter to make some nonsensical comment.
"#Fastball; Torpedo away... You corporate Trolls were warned. And now you've been served!"
What world is Sheen living in where he thinks someone, anyone, can tell their boss to fuck off, on television, a hundred different ways and not get fired? This whole thing is dumb, Sheen violated his contract, and it's insulting that he would sue on behalf of the crew. As if he gives a shit. If I were the judge I'd not only throw this lawsuit out, I'd have the bailiff bring it over to Sheen and make him eat it.
