Sheen sues for $100 million

 

Charlie Sheen is still aiming to
win…$100 million.

The unemployed actor, 45, is suing
Warner Bros. Television and Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre for a
whopping $100 million plus punitive damages, TMZ reports.

Sheen, who made $1.2 million per
episode of the CBS show, 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,” reads Singer’s introduction
to the filing.

Singer alleges that Lorre decided
to cancel this season’s remaining episodes prior to Sheen’s very public
criticism of him.

The suit also says that Warner
Bros. fired Sheen when he was “sick,” which violates State and
federal law.
