Charlie Sheen Sues Warner Bros. for $100 Million…Winning?

Published

on

Charlie Sheen is on a roll, and he is definitely not letting up…

It is official that the Tiger Blooded star is now suing Warner Bros. and Chuck Lorre for  $100 million plus punitive damages not just for himself, but on behalf of the cast and crew of “Two and A Half Men”.

In the lawsuit, Sheen’s attorney Marty Singer writes:

“Chuck Lorre, one of the richest men in television who is worth hundreds of millions of dollars, believes himself to be so wealthy and powerful that he can unilaterally decide to take money away from the dedicated cast and crew of the popular television series, ‘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.”

When asked about the motive behind the lawsuit, Singer tells The Hollywood Reporter:

“When a production company and network are willing to hire someone who is a convicted felon and accused of putting a knife to his wife’s throat, and they know that this person has substance abuse problems, it’s obvious that their position in this dispute is ridiculous. What Warner Bros. is really saying is you can’t mess with the 900 pound gorilla showrunner [Lorre] or you will get tossed.”

Rumors were going around that the cast and crew of “Two and A Half Men” asked Sheen to file the lawsuit.  When asked about it, Singer said:

“I’m not going to comment on what people said privately. But if the cast and crew did something on their own they would be blackballed. Once you file a lawsuit, you don’t get paid and you don’t get hired. Charlie is looking out for the people he’s working with. Warner Bros. can try to cast this however they want but the complaint speaks for itself.”

So Sheen is basically saying that all of this is not really for him, but all for the financial safety of his crew…yet he is also demanding he gets paid for the eight canceled episodes of the hit CBS show.

What do you think?  Is Sheen doing this out of selflessness, or just because he doesn’t know when to quit?  Tell us below!

AWKWARD: Ross Didn’t Like His Pet Monkey On ‘Friends’?!?

Published

Remember back in the 90’s on Friends when Ross got a pet monkey while living in New York City and no one batted an eye? Those were truly simpler times. Here in the jaded 2019, we just discovered that David Schwimmer didn’t like working with that monkey and now I don’t know what to believe anymore.

Last night, Matt LeBlanc stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to promote his latest sitcom, Man With A Plan, but it was his chat about a particular Friends star that has the internet buzzing. When Jimmy Kimmel coyly asked if Matt keeps in touch with Marcel the monkey (who is actually named Katie in real life), Matt shared a nugget of information that I wasn’t prepared to ingest. David Schwimmer did not like working with the monkey!

“I liked the monkey! I like animals, and the monkey was really cool. Schwimmer… Not so much. He’s the one that had to work with it the most, so he was like, ‘Again with the monkey?’ But I got along great with it.”

Ouch. Right in the nostalgia. Apparently Katie the monkey wasn’t always the most cooperative co-star as Matt recounted the time she forced taping to come to a complete halt when she climbed above the lighting grid to hang out on the ceiling. It took about thirty minutes and a few mealworms to finally get the monkey back down to the set! Talk about a diva.

VIDEO: The 38 Seconds Of Video Lori Loughlin’s Daughter Olivia Jade Is Regretting Right Now.

In a video from last year, Loughlin’s daughter says she will balance trips to Fiji and NYC into her school calendar, “doesn’t know how much of school (she is) going to attend” but she wants the experience of game days, partying, and “doesn’t really care about school, as you know.”

As mom Lori Loughlin faces allegations she paid 500,000 to help get her daughter Olivia Jade into college as a member of the crew team – even sending photographs of her daughter on a rowing machine to create the impression she was an athlete – a video made by her daughter in August is making the rounds again for the embarrassing references she makes to not even caring about getting an education in the first place.

In the video, an entitled Olivia Jade, a YouTuber followed by 2 million people on the video platform, says she will balance trips to Fiji and NYC into her school calendar, “doesn’t know how much of school (she is) going to attend” but she wants the experience of game days, partying, and “doesn’t really care about school, as you know.”

Why she hasn’t taken this video down yet completely escapes me.

Naturally, social media has unleashed upon her, although it is unclear whether Olivia Jade even know her entrance into college was a result of bribes, (if the allegations are proven correct.)

In either case, the social media celebrity had to apologize days after this video first came out, and is more than likely wishing she had taken it down entirely now…
