Charlie Sheen settles dispute with Warner Brothers

Two and a Half Men {jcomments off}Former Two and a Half Men actor Charlie Sheen has resolved his dispute with Warner Brothers following his exit from the hugely popular sitcom.

The somewhat bitter suit between Charlie Sheen and Warner Brothers over his exit from sitcom Two and a Half Men is over. The actor has settled his suit against the company after he was fired from the comedy after a series of outspoken comments and incidents. Sheen’s exit from Two and a Half Men put the future of the series in doubt for some time but later producers opted to continue with a new lead star.

Sheen decided to sue following his sacking from Two and a Half Men and filled a $100 million law suit for unproduced episodes, compensation for the crew and for “wrongfully attributed the suspension of the series and termination of Mr. Sheen’s contract on Mr. Sheen’s alleged statements, conduct, and condition, despite the fact that Mr. Sheen is in compliance with his contract.”

Yesterday though Warner Brothers released the following statement; “Warner Bros. TV, Chuck Lorre and Charlie Sheen have resolved their dispute to the parties’ mutual satisfaction. The pending lawsuit and arbitration will be dismissed as to all parties. The parties have agreed to maintain confidentiality over the terms of the settlement.”

Two and a Half Men returned for its new series last week with Ashton Kutcher joining the sitcom. The episode was seen by a whopping 28 million viewers but when DVR figures are added then the ratings rise to nearer 32 million!
