Charlie Sheen Fired: Will He Sue? Will Warner Bros. Sue?MariaLianos
Charlie Sheen has been fired from Two and a Half Men officially and permanently.
Sheen was fired because he committed a felony involving “moral turpitude.”
TMZ has obtained an 11-page letter Warner Bros. sent to Charlie Sheen’s lawyer.
The letter says there is a clause in Sheen’s contract saying they can fire a performer who commits “a felony offense involving moral turpitude.”
“There is ample evidence supporting Warner Bros. reasonable good faith opinion that Mr. Sheen has committed felony offenses involving moral turpitude (including but not limited to furnishing of cocaine to others as part of the self-destructive lifestyle he has described publicly) that have ‘interfere[d] with his ability to fully and completely render all material services required’ under the agreement.”
Sheen’s lawyer, Marty Singer, has demanded Warner Bros. pay Charlie for the eight cancelled episodes. However Warner Bros. seems undaunted by the threat, even reserving its right to take legal action against Sheen.
Singer told TMZ he believes Chuck Lorre is behind the move to fire him and that he interfered with Sheen’s contract.
