Actor Charlie Sheen, Warner Bros. Television, and Two and a Half Men executive producer Chuck Lorre have settled their ongoing legal dispute. Here's the official statement regarding the settlement below.
"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. The parties have agreed to maintain confidentiality over the terms of the settlement."
After Charlie Sheen was fired from Two and a Half Men in March, he filed a $100 million lawsuit, where he sought compensation for unproduced episodes of Two and a Half Men as well as compensation for the crew.
While the financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed, it is believed that Charlie Sheen received upwards of $25 million, which is a far cry from the $100 million he was asking.
At any rate, neither party is hurting too much. Nearly 28 million viewers tuned into the new season of Two and a Half Men, with new star Ashton Kutcher. Charlie Sheen is developing a new sitcom, appropriately titled Anger Management.
