Why are we not surprised?
Although Charlie Sheen's battle with Warner Brothers was thought to have ended when they fired his ass yesterday, sources connected to the actor claim that he has what's being called a "Michael J. Fox" clause in his contract, which means if the studio continues to try and produce Two and a Half Men, he's legally obligated to still get paid!
Apparently, it's called the Michael J. Fox clause because those terms were written into that actor's contract during his time on Spin City, and ironically, was replaced by Sheen when he left the show!
However, Warner Brothers is asserting that because they fired Charlie, his contract is nullified, and they don't owe him a dime.
Great. Another legal battle!
We're beginning to forget what it felt like for an entire day to go by without hearing that man's name once.
This madness needs to come to an end!
