Selma Blair has officially bid farewell to the FX sitcom Anger Management.
Word of the actress’ departure from the program comes days after she got into a feud with Charlie Sheen. The tension between the two stars came to a head when Sheen refused to return to the set.
According to The Wrap, Selma Blair has officially left Anger Management. However, details about her exit are few and far between at the moment. Even the official statement from the folks at Lionsgate doesn’t give any insight into the actress’ departure.
“We are confirming that Selma Blair will not be returning to ‘Anger Management’ and we wish her the very best,” the studio said in a statement.
Reports surfaced on TMZ Monday that Blair went to the top brass at FX to complain about Charlie Sheen. According to her, the former Two and a Half Men star was simply impossible to work with on the show. Not surprisingly, news of her complaints apparently didn’t settle too well with Sheen.
Fox News explains Sheen gave the network an ultimatum: Either they fire Selma Blair or he wouldn’t return to the set. Since he’s easily the show’s major draw, it would appear the actress has been cut loose. However, it’s unclear if Blair quit or was forced out of the comedy.
Neither Selma Blair nor her representatives have commented on her departure from the series as of this writing. It’s also unknown how the writers will explain her character’s absence on Anger Management.
TMZ is also reporting that Sheen is interested in getting Mila Kunis on-board for a 10-episode arc at some point in the near future. Since her rumored boyfriend Ashton Kutcher is currently headlining Sheen’s old show, it will be interesting to see how this particular report plays out.
