Time Warner Inc. recently settled a breach of contract lawsuit filed by former “Two and a Half Men” actor Charlie Sheen. Sheen filed the lawsuit in March after he was fired from the show.
In the lawsuit, Sheen accused Time Warner subsidiary Warner Bros. and “Two and Half Men” creator Chuck Lorre of retaliation and breach of contract for firing him after appearing in 177 episodes of the television show. The actor sought $100 million in damages.
Details of the settlement have yet to be released. However, earlier this month, sources reported that the parties involved in the contract dispute were close to reaching a settlement in which Sheen would be awarded $25 million.
In an email from Time Warner released yesterday, the company states, “Warner Bros. Television, 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.”
