Sheen to earn $125 million over firing dispute
LOS ANGELES, Sept. 20 (UPI) — The settlement U.S. actor Charlie Sheen reached with Warner Bros. regarding his firing will be worth more than $125 million over the next decade, TMZ said.
Sheen is expected to get a one-time $25 million payment in about two weeks, then about $100 million in syndication profits over the next seven to 10 years for the 180 episodes of the show he taped, the entertainment news Web site said.
The actor was fired this year from the Warner Bros. sitcom “Two and a Half Men” after eight seasons because of his erratic behavior and substance abuse, as well as for disparaging remarks he made about series creator Chuck Lorre, his co-stars and the show itself.
