Warner Bros had stalled the production of 'Two and a Half Men' after his TV rant against the show creator. They were forced to fire Charlie Sheen from the show when continued to attack Chuck. The studio defended its decision by citing his dangerous self-destructive behavior. It had also claimed that it helped him to recover from his highly publicized partying, but he failed to continue with his rehabilitation program.
After reading Warner Bros termination letter, Charlie Sheen's lawyer Martin Singer had said that the actor would take legal action against them. Now, he has officially lodged a lawsuit on behalf of himself and the programme's crew against the Warner Bros studio and executive producer Chuck Lorre.
In his 30-page lawsuit, Charlie has alleged that Warner Bros bowed to Lorre's desire to 'punish' him and the producer and studio conspired to blame him for causing production to stop. The actor has also attacked Lorre and accuses the producer of making him a 'scapegoat'. “Sheen also claims that he was fired while he was sick, a breach of employment law," reports the Telegraph.co.uk.
