After a legal battle spanning several months between Charlie Sheen and Warner Bros. Television, Two and a Half Men co-creator Chuck Lorre included, Sheen has reportedly settled the case through arbitration.
Back in March, Sheen filed a $100-million lawsuit against the studio and Two and a Half Men‘s creators after he was fired from the popular CBS sitcom due to a series of negative comments he made to the media about the studio and Two and a Half Men co-creator Chuck Lorre.
“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,” Warner Bros said in a statement.
Neither party have come out and put a number on the settlement, but a report from LA Times last week suggested that Sheen would be receiving $25 million out of the settlement.
Sheen is reportedly working on a new television series based on the Adam Sandler movie Anger Management. According to a report by E!, Sheen will be taking on the role of Jack Nicholson’s character from the movie.
Two and a Half Men made its season debut last week, sans Sheen, to a record 28.7 million viewers.
