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."
