Charlie Sheen Wins $100 Million Settlement!
Winning! Charlie Sheen may have been kicked off from the hit show, Two and a Half Men (killed off actually), but he is still making his money. According to Hollyscoop, the actor has won a $100 million settlement from Warner Bros from his lawsuit against the company after he was fired.
Charlie sued Warner Bros and the show's creator Chuck Lorre in a multi-million dollar legal battle after he was fired from Two and a Half Men for personally attacking Lorre and having too many “personal issues," which is a nice way of saying that the guy was spazzing out! Anyway, Charlie will receive a first installment payment of $25 million. This is the money that Charlie was owed for episodes that he shot and profits from the show. When Charlie was fired, WB stopped paying him, so this is just what he was owed.
There's still more money coming his way, though. He’s still going to make money from syndication rights. Even though Ashton Kutcher has taken Charlie's place, episodes of past seasons still come on regularly. So Charlie will receive the remainder of the $100 million over the next 10 years from syndication profits, with about 180 episodes of the show under his belt.
I'm going to say it again. Winning!
