Two And A Half Men halted after Charlie Sheen launches bizarre radio outburst

  • Estranged wife jets back to Los Angeles after less than a day in Bahamas
  • Actor claims he'll move to rival channel HBO with his own new show
  • Calls Two And A Half Men producer a 'turd' and 'maggot' in furious rants

Charlie Sheen is today holidaying in the Bahamas as his career continues to nosedive.

In the past 24 hours, the actor has challenged Two And A Half Men producer Chuck Lorre to a fight, had production on his sitcom halted as a result and claimed that a new series on rival channel HBO is already in the works.

His bizarre behaviour, including multiple rants in which he calls his now ex-boss a 'turd' and a 'contaminated little maggot' has now put his role in an upcoming film Major League 3 in jeopardy, according to the film's producer James G. Robinson.

In a bizarre letter to celebrity TMZ from the Bahamas, where he is currently ensconced with his girlfriend and a porn star, the 45-year-old said of his old producer: 'What does this say about Haim Levine [Chuck Lorre] after he tried to use his words to judge and attempt to degrade me.

'I gracefully ignored this folly for 177 shows ... I fire back once and this contaminated little maggot can't handle my power and can't handle the truth.

'I wish him nothing but pain in his silly travels.'

The letter follows a rant on the Alex Jones radio show, in which Sheen labelled Alcoholics Anonymous a 'cult' for 'stupid people,'

He attacked the Two And A Half Men producer, calling him a 'turd.'

He said he humiliated Lorre 'in front of his children and the world by healing at a pace that his un-evolved mind cannot process.'

Sheen added: ''I'm not fair game. I'm not a soft target. There's a new sheriff, and he has an army of assassins.'

He told the radio show that his ex-wife Brooke Mueller, who was pictured leaving with Charlie on a private jet yesterday, has now left.

'And I just gotta add this, there was a whole firestorm about Brooke being a part of our crew,'Sheen said. 'Where there were four, there are now three. Good-bye, Brooke, and good luck in your travels - you're going to need it. Badly.'

Despite being on holiday, Sheen claims he is in 'serious negotiations' with rival network HBO for a new half-hour show which he says will be called Sheen's Corner.

'I’m close to securing a deal with HBO for a 10 show guarantee,' Sheen told

'It will be epic, all types of guests and we will focus on the truth and the absurd!' However a spokesperson from HBO is yet to comment on the claims.

It appears that Sheen will have plenty of time for a new sitcom, as James G. Robinson, producer of Charlie's upcoming film Major League 3, has revealed that the actor's role in the film is in jeopardy.

The CEO of Morgan Creek Productions told TMZ: 'I'm not going to risk putting Charlie in the movie if he continues messing up.'

Robinson added: 'Obviously with Major League 3 there's a huge part written for Charlie's character ... but after dealing with Lindsay Lohan on 'Georgia Rule,' I can speak for someone who has experienced the difficulties of working with an actor dealing with addiction.'

'I won't go through that again. If Charlie doesn't straighten up ... I unfortunately can't put him in the movie.'

'When Lindsay was doing Georgia Rule, she would miss full days of work.  When an actor doesn't show up for work, you can lose half-a-million dollars a day paying the 250 other people there for the shoot and the costs for the set.'

But judging by the pictures of Sheen frolicking with blonde beauties on a luxurious yacht and on his private jet, he's not too concerned.

The hellraising star has been enjoying the attentions of not only his girlfriend Natalie Kenly but also his ex-wife Brooke Mueller and porn star Bree Olson.

On Monday night, 45-year-old Sheen was pictured on board a yacht with a cigarette hanging from his lips - as Miss Olson and Miss Kenly, both 24, kissed him at the same time.

On Tuesday, 33-year-old Miss Mueller joined the group for a party in the home cinema at Sheen’s Beverly Hills mansion.

Despite the pair’s split last year and impending divorce, she is said to be a regular visitor with the couple’s 23-month-old twin sons, Bob and Max.

And on Wednesday all three women were with Sheen on the private jet as he flew off for a break in the Bahamas.

Moving on: Just a day after Two And A Half Men was cancelled, Sheen claims he is in negotiation for a new show with rival network HBO

But by Thursday, it appears Mueller has already flown back to Los Angeles.

Sheen, who was hospitalised following a 36-hour drink and drugs spree last month, is said to be Hollywood’s highest-paid TV actor.

He earned more than £1million per episode for Two And A Half Men for which filming had been due to resume on Tuesday.

But after Sheen took to the radio yesterday to slate his bosses the rest of the series was cancelled.


CBS and Warner Bros reacted quickly after Sheen's outburst.

'Based on the totality of Charlie Sheen's statements, conduct and condition, CBS and Warner Bros. Television have decided to discontinue production of Two and a Half Men for the remainder of the season,' their statement said.

Sheen immediately back and sent an angry open letter to a U.S. blog.

The letter was aimed primarily at Lorre, calling him a 'maggot' and an 'earthworm and wishing him 'pain'.

'What does this say about Haim Levine [Chuck Lorre] after he tried to use words to judge and attempt to degrade me,' the actor wrote.

'I gracefully ignored this folly for 177 shows. I fire back one and this contaminated little maggot can't handle my power and can't handle the truth.

'I wish him nothing but pain in his silly travels, especially if they wind up in my octagon.'

He continued: 'Clearly I have defeated this earthworm with my words. Imagine what I would have done with my fire-breathing fists.

'I urge all my beautiful and loyal fans who embraced this show for almost a decade to walk with me side by side as we march up the steps of justice to right this unconscionable wrong.

'Remember these are my people - not yours.

'We will continue on together.'

Whether it ever returns to screens depends on Sheen's behaviour.

Yesterday he said: 'I was told if I went on the attack they'd cancel the show. Are they happy with the five billion dollars they made off me or do they want ten?

'I'm not fair game. I'm not a soft target. There's a new sheriff, and he has an army of assassins.

'My motto now is either you love or you hate and you must do so violently. I don't live in the middle anymore. That's where you get embarrassed.

'If you love with violence and you hate with violence there is nothing that can be questioned.'

He personally pinpointed the show's creator Chuck Lorre, calling him a 'turd'.

He claimed to have humiliated Lorre 'in front of his children and the world by healing at a pace that his unevolved mind cannot process'.

He also slated the help group Alcoholics Anonymous, labelling it a 'cult' for 'stupid people'.

Speaking on the Alex Jones radio show Sheen also claimed that he has a '100 per cent' success rate in curing his own addictions.

'Newsflash, I'm special,' he said. 'The only thing I'm addicted to right now is winning. My success rate is 100 per cent.'

The actor said the worldwide movement, which currently claims two million members, was followed by 'stupid people'.

'It's vintage, outdated and stupid and it's followed by stupid people. I hate them violently. They will come at me,' he said. 

'I finally extracted myself from their troll hole and started living my life the way I want to live it.'

He also spoke of the many women in his life: 'Let me say this about the Goddesses, I don't think the term is good enough, but when you're bound by these terrestrial descriptions, you must use the best term available.

'So if you think about it dude, I'm 0-for-3 in marriage, but like in baseball, the scoreboard doesn't lie. Never has. So what we all have is a marriage of the hearts. And to sully, contaminate, or radically disrespect this unit with a shameful contract is something I'll leave to the amateurs and bible grippers.'

Sheen has been in hospital three times in as many months.

In October last year, he was accused of causing thousands of pounds worth of damage to his hotel suite following a drink and drugs spree.

His father Martin, best known for playing President Jed Bartlet in The West Wing, has said his son’s drink and drug addictions are a ‘form of cancer’.

While claiming Charlie appeared to be on the mend, the 70-year-old actor revealed that his condition is still serious, saying: ‘We pray for him.’
