Charlie Sheen, Warner Bros. settle 'Two and a Half Men' suit
Sheen, "Men" producer Warner Bros. TV and creator Chuck Lorre settled the case on Monday (Sept. 26). Sheen will walk away with a reported eight-figure settlement, and no one has to have their dirty laundry aired in open court.
"Warner Bros. Television, Chuck Lorre and Charlie Sheen have resolved their dispute to the parties' mutual satisfaction," a statement from all sides reads. "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."
While the terms won't be disclosed, various reports peg Sheen's settlement in the neighborhood of $25 million, mostly for payments held up in the wake his firing and filing of the lawsuit. He'll also keep receiving syndication payments for the eight seasons of the show in which he starred.
Sheen had sought $100 million in the suit, which claimed he was wrongfully terminated. Ashton Kutcher replaced him on the CBS sitcom, and Sheen now has a deal with Debmar-Mercury to star in a comedy based loosely on the 2003 movie "Anger Management."
