Jon Cryer - FBI Investigating Alleged Death Threat

1/21/2010 4:48 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jon Cryer - FBI Investigating Alleged Death ThreatJon Cryer -- who stars with Charlie Sheen in "Two and a Half Men" -- told authorities his life was in danger -- possibly by a hitman -- and TMZ has learned the FBI is investigating.

Cryer sounded the alarm last Friday. Sources tell us Cryer told law enforcement he believed his ex-wife hired a hitman to kill him.

Cryer and his ex have been embroiled in a bitter custody fight, which has gotten even more intense recently.

Sources tell us the FBI has been on the case for a week. As far as we know the agency has no suspects. The FBI declined comment.

As we first reported, security descended on the set of "Two and a Half Men" last Friday and the show was taped without an audience. We're told this Friday's show will also be taped without an audience ... but it's for creative, not security reasons.

Our sources say Cryer has told people the threat has abated and he feels more secure.

Cryer's ex-wife told us last Friday she was unaware of any threat against Jon.

@Niles ^ Yeah he risks going to PRISON for lying to the police about someone trying to KILL him because he's not getting enough attention in the media. *rolls eyes*

maybe he is just nuts, paranoid, skitzoid, looney tunes looking for his 30 minutes of fame, which he has had or maybe he isnt getting enough attention? it is funny how life imitates art, he plays a paranoid control freak on the show and in real life he is one , amazing how losers can find a way to get attention

Wow, still not a single mention of a man who was a few million votes away from the White House, admitting to having fathered a ba$tard child with a hooker while his wife was dying from cancer......

Whoa....you are actually calling an innocent baby a bastard???? That makes the baby sound responsible for her position in life - and like she is worthless. The parents may suck, but that isn't the fault of the baby - besides she is going to have enough trouble later in life when she finds out her father publicly disowned and disgarded her (until a publicist came into the picture and made Douche Boy, John Edwards apologize).

Incidentally, what about your parents? Obviously they raised a callous piece of trash....
