Charlie's Lawyer Drops Explanation For Including Crew In Lawsuit

| Filed under: Legal MattersCharlie Sheen

Sheen Got Yo Back Crew

Charlie Sheen's lawyer Marty Singer has opened up on reasons for the brutal $100 million dollar lawsuit.

Basically, Lorre and Co. knew what they were getting into when they renegotiated the MaSheen's contract, so it's all just a personal vendetta headed by Lorre.

Here are Singer's own words:

“When a production company and network are willing to hire someone who is a convicted felon and accused of putting a knife to his wife's throat, and they know that this person has substance abuse problems, it's obvious that their position in this dispute is ridiculous. What Warner Bros. is really saying is you can't mess with the 900 pound gorilla showrunner [Lorre] or you will get tossed.”

That does make sense, but we gotta keep in mind that Charlie's behavior has not been in the best interest of the cast and crew. If he really cared about them, he would have straightened up and gotten clean, and back to work.

Singer insists, however, that Charlie's main concern IS his cast and crew:

“If you look at the quotes from Charlie from Day One, this is not just about him. Chuck Lorre could dictate who gets paid and who doesn’t, and a lot of other people got hurt.”

"I'm not going to comment on what people said privately. But if the cast and crew did something on their own they would be blackballed. Once you file a lawsuit, you don't get paid and you don't get hired. Charlie is looking out for the people he's working with. Warner Bros. can try to cast this however they want but the complaint speaks for itself.”

That's true, we do think that people would get blackballed if they filed the suit on their own, so it might actually be a noble thing that Charlie's doing.

What he's doing exactly is invoking California Labor Code Section 2699, the state’s private attorney general statute, which allows individuals to initiate lawsuits on behalf of others.

The question is, though, whether or not the cast and crew requested this or if Charlie just went ahead and did it anyway.

We hope this plays out in open court, it's waaay too inneresting to have us all be shut out!

    He did those things AFTER he had been hired - idiot Lawyer

    This is a publicity stunt, just Charlie trying to get public opinion on his side. That's all it is. Plus, the fact that Charlie wants HIS money. He only included the others because it makes him look better.

    It's all show. He's only including the crew to look good. What a fucking tool.

    Bad boy, maybe, but 'banging 7 gram rocks' (and 'suitcases full) o'cocaine, NO ONE could see THAT coming. If they had, they would've taken a life insurance policy out on Mr. Sheen as well as renewing his contract!

    I am absolutely 100% certain Charlie is not being noble. Give me a break!

    Re: brat93111Re: brat93111 – Actually no, everything mentioned by the lawyer happened BEFORE his contract was negotiated, which was actually very recently.

    PEREZ PEREZ!!!!! Says Perez: "If he really cared about them (the cast members), he would have straightened up and gotten clean, and back to work".

    Perez, that is not how addiction works. That's like saying "all non-addicts are really really great people". Current research acknowledges that addiction operates below the level of consciousness. Marry that with a personality disorder and hold on to your hats! It takes a great committment to getting well and using different strategies to manage ones life.

    In any case, am I the ONLY ONE?? or is Charlie Sheen just "acting" with all this hoopla going on around his life at the moment. I think he has "created" this new, "winning" character and persona as a displacement procedure for anxiety reduction and to distract himself following his cocaine benders. His brain is composed differently to most people, being an addict, and managing after addiction often requires that one does things - that others may seem odd - in order to cope. To me, Charlie has just created something else… He has a high need for cognition and this "character" is simply another one of his "projects".

    Why do they keep saying his cast and crew? he is not the one who put together this sitcom. Others did and unfortunately hired the wrong person ( CS or CE which ever) His stupid lawyer does nothing but shovel shit about shit about shit. Why? MONEY DUHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
