It's Official: Warner Bros., Charlie Sheen, Chuck Lorre Reach Settlement

The national nightmare is over: Warner Bros. Television and Charlie Sheen have reached a settlement in their nasty legal kerfuffle triggered by Sheen’s $100 million lawsuit against the studio and Two and a Half Men boss Chuck Lorre.

Here’s the official statement: “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.”

Financial details were not disclosed, but various reports put Sheen’s haul at roughly $25 million (a figure that represents backend money owed to him as opposed to damages).

The deal — which comes exactly a week after Men returned to record ratings with new leading man Ashton Kutcher — presumably brings to a close one of the ugliest spats in Hollywood history. It also arrives as Sheen is looking to make a TV comeback with Anger Management, a half-hour comedy based on the 2003 Jack Nicholson-Adam Sandler flick.

    Typo! Says Sheen’s name where you mean Lorre

  2. Laura says:

    Also says ‘many’ instead of man. What’s up with all the mistakes lately?

  3. Cameron says:

    Why are people so obsessed with this motherf@cker? I don’t get it how is this news?

  4. Dave says:

    @Cameron: dude, you’re at a site all about TV. That’s why its “news”

  5. Gretchen says:

    Good for Sheen.

  6. Winning says:

    I would say that 25 mill for no work is WINNING!

  7. Glen says:

    Chuck Lorre and Charlie Sheen were working together. Charlie sheen wanted to leave the show, but they knew that just replacing him would damage their ratings, so they created this huge public scene and the season premiere of “Two and Half Men” gets record ratings purely because people have heard about this public ‘fight’ between Sheen and Lorre. And now, only a week later, they have settled the lawsuit and all Charlie Sheen gets is what he was already owed? Clearly a publicity stunt

  8. Karen says:

    Now Just please come back Charlie, so we can go back to enjoying 2and a Half Men!!

      No. No. No. No. No. No. No. No more Charlie Sheen. I don’t care how bad some people think 2-1/2 Men is without CS (actually most posters who “love” Charlie are probably Charlie so I take what they say with a grain of salt). That guy went totally off the rails, endangering hundreds of peoples livelihoods. He was selfish and drug and alcohol addled and only cared about his next fix. He bad mouthed his boss in front of the whole world. He hung out with prostitutes and porn stars. He beat up his wives and his W*ores. He continued this crazyness for months on end sickening everybody except his diehard fans, who probably approve of this kind of lifestyle. I am not interested in hearing any more of his apologies. He can grovel all he wants. How long will it be before he’s back on the pipe? Charlie, just take your $25 million and go away already.

    Last night’s 2.5 men was one of the worst I’ve ever seen

  10. karen says:

    Ashton is not bad in this ! Lorre just still has his nose out of joint and won’t back down! The vanity card last night proves it! He’s going to write a tell all!
    Sounds like a big baby that can’t forgive for the good of the crew and CBS. Charlie has a disease, What’s Lorre’s excuse?
    This show is horrible now.
    This show needs Charlie Harper, Yes he did all of those things, but obviously there are people on this board that are perfect and don;t understand diseases, so we will just ignore their naivity!

    • Melissa says:

      @ Karen – Yes, you are correct. Charlie does have a disease, actually probably more than one. I would venture to say he has a little something called manic depressive disorder along with a serious case of narcissitic personality disorder, entitlement issues and delusions of grandeur on top of multiple substance abuse issues. He needs to get as far away from Hollyweird as possible if he has any hope of getting his life on track. You asking Charlie to “come back” to 2-1/2 Men so you can enjoy it again is ridiculous (and selfish) and probably not good for Chuck Lorre, the cast, crew, or Charlie, who obviously cannot handle the trappings of the “rich and famous” lifestyle. You Karen, are the naive one.

    At last !! I can sleep again at night!

  12. Joabe says:

    Queremos Charlie Sheen de volta! O seriado foi criado ela CBS “especialmente para Charlie Sheen”. É a cara dele!
    Desde a série ‘Two and a Half Men’ foi criada como um prêmio a este ator incrível.
    Tudo foi feito ao seu molde! Não ha como muadar pois é uma paródia de sua vida.
    É quase igual ao seriado ‘Supernatural’ com Dean Winchester e Sam Winchester.

    Se os atores forem trocados (TUDO ACABA!).

    I personally disapproved of the debarchery, perversion and personality Mr. Sheen portray in this great Sid com sad that the show is so fantastic because some where within our family there lives a Charlie. We which not to speak about him and many times are embarrass about him but he is still an important member of the family.
    The days of the Brady Bunch, who ate the Daisy are over and this is television, whether we want to admi it I miss you Charlie and though I disapprove of your Attitude of camara I know you have demons and a sad and horrific sickness your fighting but again I miss you Charlie Harper makes this show. Ashton I like you but you really don’t hold the show. My wife and I truly felt if Charlie is out, allow it with the zany and funny Allan his foggy brain son jake raising Charlie’s confused and horney biological off- spring. Let Allan keep the house, the funny and weird maid (sorry House keeper) and dischanted mother.
    Miss you Charlie Sheen don’t really like Anger Management it’s missing the person Charlie really is…..
