Charlie Sheen has been through a lot the past year, and I mean A LOT. Battling drug and alcohol problems, girlfriend and ex-wife battles, custody of his children, and trying to stay out of trouble with the law and trying to keep a job, his career has gone downhill. Especially with the latest news that Sheen has been terminated from his hit TV show “Two and a Half Men”. All of this coming after Sheen demanded $3 million per episode from the shows executives which would mean that his paycheck for each show would be a little bit less than double what he is already making now.
With a few minor grammatical changes, the quote below was taken directly from TMZ.com
Charlie’s lawyer, Marty Singer, tells TMZ, he believes Lorre is behind the move to fire him from “Two and a Half Men” and that Lorre has interfered with Charlie’s contract.
Singer doesn’t buy Warner Bros. explanation that Charlie committed moral turpitude by admitting to drug use. Singer says when Charlie was going to plead guilty to a felony last year over the domestic violence incident in Aspen, Warner Bros. was not only okay with it, they renegotiated Charlie’s contract.
Singer claims the real reason Warner Bros. gave Charlie the boot is because he insulted Lorre, and that’s not reason to fire him.
And, Singer says, Charlie isn’t the first star who couldn’t co-exist with Lorre. Roseanne Barr and Brett Butler also couldn’t work with Chuck. On the other side of the coin, Lorre is the most successful producer in TV currently, with three hit shows on the air — “Two and a Half Men,” “The Big Bang Theory” and “Mike and Molly.”
