Sorry, Two and a Half Men Fans, it looks like the rumors were true - sort of!
Charlie Sheen is speaking out about his much-speculated exit from the smash comedy, and is not happy about false reports that he was fishing for more ca$h!
However, the fact remains that regardless of his motivations, he wants out!
The troubled actor says:
“Much speculation and rumor has arisen from my current status surrounding Two and a Half Men. All of the numbers reported in the press are false. Claims from ‘inside sources’ regarding offers from the studio as well as my salary, on their best day, are without merit. Approaching the start of the current season and as far back as June ‘09, I submitted my terms for season eight to Warner Bros. and CBS respectfully. Both parties have known the score for over a year. In no way, has this been a hasty or negligent eleventh hour surprise. I offer this information out of love and respect to my crew, my on-set family, my writers, executive staff, as well as my real family, my dear friends and my loyal fans. We tape the final episode of the season this evening. If tonight’s show is the end for me as Charlie Harper, so be it. Another journey has begun. I take from the experience 161 shows filled with a kaleidoscope of amazing experiences, memories, friendships and gratitude. I remain humbly inspired. – C. Sheen”
Unfortunately, we think this is for the best. Sheen may be in serious shiz when he returns to court regarding his domestic abuse case with wife Brooke Mueller, so at least this way he can exit the show on his own terms.
What do U think?? Are U sad to see Charlie leave Two and a Half Men??
