Charlie Sheen demands apology from CBS
Charlie Sheen's hard-partying ways have made him the center of a lot of attention lately. While his notoriety actually helped boost the rating of the show he stars in, Two And A Half Men, CBS finally decided that enough was enough and canceled the rest of the series.
As soon as the network decided to can the remaining episodes, eight in total, Sheen announced that he was planning to sue them for $300 million. He told ABC News Andrea Caning that he has a family to support, so he needed the compensation. When asked to respond to reports that he was bipolar, Sheen had this to say:
"What does that mean?" he asked the news provider. "What's the cure? Medicine? Make me like them? Not gonna happen. I'm bi-winning. I win here. I win there."
He emphasized the fact that he was clean for good and he has passed blood and urine tests to prove it. He has been in rehab three times so far, most recently near the end of January, before he left the facility early and went home.
As for CBS, it appears that Sheen's threat to sue has caused them to recant some of their initial decisions – FOX News reports that they have decided to compensate the actors for Two And A Half Men for four of the cancelled episodes.
Still, Sheen said that he wouldn't be satisfied until the crew was paid for all of the remaining shows.
Some other Hollywood personalities agree with the embattled actor.
"I think that CBS acted inappropriately," film producer Jason Ninness told the news provider. "Look – Charlie Sheen is not asking for twenty white horses to ride him into work each day. From what I understand, until somebody produces evidence to the contrary – Charlie Sheen showed up to work every day prepared.
