Charlie Sheen, fired, might still get paid
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Just because Charlie Sheen lost his gig at “Two and a Half Men” – CBS fired the troubled celebrity from the award-winning sitcom late Monday – doesn’t mean he won’t still collect a paycheck.
Sheen’s people (the “Goddesses,” we assume) have claimed to TMZ that Charlie has what he is referring to as a “Michael J. Fox” clause built into his “Two and a Half Men” contract.
Back in the day, when the “Family Ties” star worked on the sitcom “Spin City,” his contract, according to TMZ, “provided that he would keep getting paid as long as the show was in production, even if he left the show.” In a strange twist of fate, it was Sheen who eventually replaced Fox … but Fox kept drawing a paycheck.
Sheen, who’s no dope (despite all of this recent lunacy), must have learned a lesson, because he reportedly has the same stipulation built in to his “Men” contract.
Warner Bros., however, say that the contract is null and void because Sheen was fired.
Think this one is- heading to court?
