Charlie Sheen has reached an out of court settlement for his dismissal from ‘Two and a Half Men’. The eccentric actor had filed a $100 million lawsuit against the show’s makers, Warner Bros., which has now been resolved, although its terms will remain confidential. A statement from the company read: “Warner Bros. Television, executive producer 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.”
Charlie was fired from the show in March after concerns were raised about the actor’s conduct off set – which included drug use and wild partying – and his entering a rehabilitation facility caused the show’s production to be suspended.
He had countered that the show’s co-creator, Chuck Lorre had been “harassing and disparaging” him, and launched a number of personal attacks aimed at both Chuck and Warner Bros.
Court papers filed by Charlie at the time sought compensation for loss of earnings for both himself and Two and a Half Men’s “entire crew”.
At the time of his dismissal, the 46-year-old actor was the highest paid TV star in the US, earning $1.2 million per episode of the comedy series.
While the details of the settlement were not released, it has previously been rumoured Charlie would receive a $25 million lump sum for unpaid wages.
Charlie has turned his life around and got sober since leaving the sitcom, and recently apologised to the cast and crew for his behaviour in the wake of his exit from the show. He also wished new cast member Ashton Kutcher the best of luck.
Speaking at the Primetime Emmy Awards earlier this month, he said: “I want to take a moment to get something off my chest and say a few words to everybody here from ‘Two and a Half Men’.
“From the bottom of my heart I wish you nothing but the best for this upcoming season. We spent eight wonderful years together … and I know you will continue to make great television.”
