Chuck Lorre's Lawyer Speaks Up About Charlie's Lawsuit

chuck lorre lawyers on charlie lawsuit

Lately, we've been hearing some things that have made Charlie Sheen's lawsuit against Warner Bros and Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre seem increasingly legit, and POSSIBLY even noble.

Chuck Lorre's lawyer Howard Weitzman is NOT viewing the lawsuit as legit at all, though. Here's what he's said about it:

"The allegations in the complaint against Mr. Lorre are as recklessly false and unwarranted as Mr. Sheen's rantings in the media. The accusations are simply imaginary."

"This lawsuit is about a fantasy 'lottery' pay-day for Charlie Sheen. Chuck Lorre's concern has been and continues to be about Mr. Sheen's health."

We're not 100% sure we fully agree with Lorre's lawyer. Just the fact that he was hired in the first place should be an indicator that Charlie's lawsuit is not completely "unwarranted."

Do U think Charlie's lawsuit is ridiculous? Or do U think there's something to it?

    This is al ridiculous. The whole media is worried about this guy when he certainly doesn't give a f*** about himself. Who cares? You ask yourself why people are on his side and encouraging him to do more stupid sh** and you're writing about him all day!! You gives a f*** about this guy?? All I want to know is when he decides to recover and go back to his old funny and sane self or when he dies. That's it.. this is all out of hand and it's all yours and the media's fault!

    Who doesn't hire a lawyer when they are being sued? That makes no sense Perez. He's guilty, because he hires a lawyer.
    Charlie Sheen needs to go to jail. Everyone thinks Lindsay Lohan needs to go to jail, and she hasn't done a millionth of what Sheen has done. Why is what he does more acceptable than Lindsay.
    I stopped watching his show after the knife incident with his now ex-wife. How many acts of violence against women does this guy get away with? 6 now. Disgusting that anyone keeps watching or carrying what he does.

    I think charlie is after the money and while I do think they are worried about Charlie's health, money and ego is probably a factor. also he's got a lawyer cause he is being sued and harrassed. and that's understandable. plus you got charlie giving interviews about yes skipping work, doing drugs and a porn star talking about witnessing the drug buy. I still don't get why child protective services and an involuntary commitment have not happened yet.

    Sadly, this lunatic warlock probably does have a couple of troll legs to stand on. Lorre & Co let him continue to work after all of his other "issues." He only received consequences, however, after he lashed out at Lorre. Fair? No. American legal system? Not all our forefathers meant it to be, I'm afraid.

    Since when does hiring a lawyer automatically mean you're guilty or that there is any merit in a lawsuit filed against you? Of course Lorre should have legal representation to deal with this sham of a lawsuit, it would be stupid not to.



  7. 7

    Uh, who in Lorre's position DOESN'T have a lawyer, idiot! I only own a medium sized business and even I have a lawyer on retainer. Don't you? You should.

    I think chucks lawyer is right on the money…and if your being sued..even if it is untrue, you still have to have a lawyer…

    Noble? Are you on crack?

    "Chuck Lorre's concern has been and continues to be about Mr. Sheen's health."

    ^ What a load of bull! He is just bitter and vengeful.

    Perez, youre phoning it in again. You should realy consider what you put on your site. Lawyering up is Lorre's right, and have hyou given any thought to the fact the perhaps he is posibly seeking to sue Charlie himself for defamation? Breach of contract? If you believe Charlie has threatened Denise, it isnt that far off to consider he has threatened others. Charlie is a loose canon, he has no empathy, or consideration for others. He is a selfish pig of a man, and is obsessed with porn, VILE…..He needs help, he is completely out of touch with reality…and because of this Lorre should have a lawyer!/b>

    Charlie's out of control behavior - knife to wife's throat, choking woman, expensive cars for prostitutes, etc. - did not stop Two and a Half Men from being a ratings winner. Sadly, that probably helped people decide to tune in… Could Charlie still perform? Is he entitled to any money per his contract? Whoever's side is better lawyered up wins…

    Its bullshit! he is acting like a whore himself and wants to get paid.. karma is a bitch.. and a warlock..

    "we've been hearing some things"

    Where, at the glory holes?

    Personally I love Charlie Sheen and i think he is funny and doesnt give a dam which is awesome everyone talks crap about everyone. And im sure if any one of you had the chance to sue for 300 million because you got fired and there was a contract and you were out how many millions anyone would do the same as him so i think you people should stop crittizing him!!! He's rich and famous and loving life! Oh and the fact he has two pornstar girlfriends is icing on the cake which is charlie sheen's life! Its awesome!! GO SHEEN!!

    This is just your usual he says, he says legal sparring in the press. They're both putting forth their case in the court of public opinion.
