A guessing game has begun in Hollywood over who might be financially liable if Charlie Sheen has to take an extended absence from “Two and a Half Men,” reports The Hollywood Reporter.
Sheen this week checked himself into rehab. He also faces felony and misdemeanor assault charges from a domestic incident involving his wife on Christmas Day.
Sheen, THR says, likely has a “morals clause" in his contract for the show, which could leave him financially liable for any losses caused by his behavior. Insurance policies also often include a “key man" provision, but the show’s policy could exclude known issues, and Sheen has previously had known substance abuse issues.
