Charlie Sheen & Warner Bros. Settle Their Legal Dispute

Warner Bros. Television that terminated Charlie Sheen released a statement that it has struck a settlement with the actor to end their legal dispute.

The former “Two and a Half Men” star’s lawsuit against the studio and series executive producer Chuck Lorre has been settled “to the parties’ satisfaction.”

Sheen had claimed a US$ 100 million dollars lawsuit against the studio for wrongful termination. While the details of the settlement were not released, it has previously been rumored Charlie would receive a US$ 25 million dollar lump sum for unpaid wages

The court proceedings concentrated on whether the dispute should be heard through private arbitration, as stipulated in the actor’s contract. A judge determined that the case should be moved to arbitration in June, where both parties had been working through that process.

Since then, Sheen has distanced himself in recent weeks from his media blitzing against the network.

In the TV program, ‘Tonight show’ interview with Jay Leno , Sheen has acknowledged that he was at least partly responsible for his ouster from television’s top-rated comedy and he wanted to rectify things that has been done by him.

In his appearance at the Emmy Awards as a presenter, he was in a reconciling tone when he addressed to the “Two and a Half Men” cast and crew, saying, “I wish you nothing but the best for this upcoming season.”
