Charlie Sheen and Warner Brothers Reach Settlement In $100 Million Lawsuit

Charlie Sheen’s massive lawsuit against Warner Bros. Television and ‘Two and a Half Men’ creator Chuck Lorre has been settled to all parties “mutual satisfaction,” Warner Bros. announced Monday. The studio said the terms of the settlement will remain private.
"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,” the studio said in a statement.
Sheen filed the $100 million lawsuit in March following his firing from Two and a Half Men. He sought compensation for himself and the show’s crew for the eight episodes that were canceled as a result of his departure. "Defendant Chuck Lorre… believes himself to be so wealthy and powerful that he can unilaterally decide to take money away from the dedicated cast and crew of 'Two and a Half Men' in order to serve his own ego and self-interest, and make the star of the Series the scapegoat for Lorre's own conduct,” Sheen claimed in court documents.
Ashton Kutcher was introduced as Sheen’s replacement on the season nine premiere of Two and a Half Men. The episode raked in 27.8 million viewers – the highest viewership ever for an episode of the show.
