Charlie Sheen, Warner Bros and ‘Two And A Half Men’ co-creator Chuck Lorre have settled their USD 100 million legal dispute.
Sheen has been on an apology spree after recovering from his public meltdown, which led to his firing from the hit show.
“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.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Lorre will pay nothing as part of the settlement. Charlie Sheen has agreed to refrain from media bashing of his former boss. USD 25 million has changed hands into the settlement but the parties are keeping mum on the sum.
The actor is now trying to sell his Lionsgate-produced sitcom comeback ‘Anger Management’ and interestingly, TNT and TBS, sister companies of Warner Bros Television, might now be allowed to bid on ‘Anger Management’.
Time Warner had instituted a no-Sheen policy while the litigation was proceeding.
