Sheen sues Warner Bros. for $100 million

A Tweet from Charlie Sheen on March 10, 2011.

Charlie Sheen is suing Warner Bros. and the head of his show Two and a Half Men for $100 million. Yes, that’s two zeroes.

Sheen filed the lawsuit in California on Thursday, alleging Chuck Lorre and the studio plotted to have Sheen removed from the popular show, and blame him for its eventual cancellation.

Sheen added that he was seeking compensation not only for himself, but for the affected cast and crew.

Warner Bros. has not responded, but late Thursday, a representative for Lorre called the lawsuit “unfounded.”

Sheen was fired from Two and a Half Men on March 7 and in recent months, his behaviour has become increasingly erratic.

He launched an Internet talk show from his Los Angeles home and in one episode, he showed off a new “winning” tattoo on his arm and read a selection from his poetry.

Sheen is also on Twitter, where despite ongoing personal drama, he often tags his missives with #winning.
