Sheen Keeps Up Pressure on ‘Men’ Producers, Demands $16 Million in Missed Pay

Feb 28, 2011  •  Post A Comment

In an interview Monday from his home that streamed live on TMZ.com, Charlie Sheen continued his war of words with CBS and with producers of “Two and a Half Men.”

He criticized CBS boss Les Moonves for not firing Chuck Lorre, the show’s creator. Meanwhile, TMZ reported that a lawyer for Sheen, Marty Singer, wrote a letter to Warner Bros. and CBS demanding $16 million in missed pay for eight canceled episodes. Singer said the star was prepared weeks ago to return to work.

In the interview, Sheen focused on family issues and said he’s doesn’t have to apologize for his lifestyle, People magazine reported. Sheen said he’s trying to ensure that he, his ex-wife, his estranged wife and his four youngest kids all have a chance to live in the same neighborhood, and he cited the problems with production of the hit sitcom as a threat to his family.

Directing his comments to the show’s producers, he said, “You guys want to go to war, let’s go to war. You want to destroy my family, let’s go. … When I’m declared winner, game over, I hope you are all writing your apologies."


  1. Until now, it seemed that no matter how badly Charlie Sheen behaved, the public supported him or at least turned a blind eye to his shenanigans. This should turn pretty much all of the public against him.

  2. Yet again we demand to be in the people on TV that we enjoy to watch. WHO cares what he is doing on his weekends? WHO cares if he has a hooker or if he is doing drugs? It’s like Bill Clinton – one of the most powerful people in the world that was President for 8 yrs….come on? Do you expect anything less or more – enjoy the show – enjoy the laughs – WHO cares what he is doing as long as he does what he is supposed to every show night. It’s like looking at an accident on the side of the road…..it just slows you down!
