Charlie Unleashes Lawyer on CBS, Warner Bros.

We've learned legal pit bull Marty Singer has fired off a demand letter to Warner Bros. and CBS, claiming Charlie was ready, willing and able to go back to the show weeks ago, but show creator Chuck Lorre began canceling episodes ... ultimately leading to the cancellation of the rest of the season.

Singer is demanding full payment for the canceled episodes -- roughly $16 million.

We've also learned ... Singer may send a similar demand to Lorre, claiming he interfered with Charlie's contract by refusing to produce the full order of shows.

No word from CBS or Warner Bros.

Maybe "Mad Dog Marty" will be able to finally shut Charlie up. If nothing else Singer is about to make some $$ off Charlie, whether he makes any money for Charlie or not remains to be seen.

Singer is good at defending a stars name/image from media smears. Very good, actually. I guess we're about to find out how he stands against CBS/Warner Bros.

This is what Charlie should be focused on vs. being an ass in the press.

This is now a contract dispute, and when Warners and CBS cancelled the season, they should have known it was going to have some cost ramifications to it.

I am beginning to think that the only friend he has is his dog or a cat.

What a moron.

Dude really thinks that he can get whatever he wants.

Oh, and TMZ keep using that "Whats his name" guy. I am sure he is glad to be in Charlies company. I am sure he ll get him some movie roles in the near future.

I wouldnt risk my project on an addict... Both of Charly's wives have said he is an addict, and abusive. Lets not even begin to count the scores of hookers he has been involved with. As an employer; would you keep somone like this on your payroll?? Charlie seems to have lost his mind, and his ego is what is setting him off now. Maybe he should pay back CBS for not giving it his all while working, and jeapordizing the show and all the money CBS, has put into him and the show.

#11, I didn't even bother to read your long-winded post about whatever. It looked like homework.

I did gleam it though, and it's evident that you're just about as worthless as Chaz. What do you care about in life more than Charlie Sheen? Look at how much time you spent on writing the defense of that piece human garbage?

I am not without sin, but I'll be the first throwing stones at that pile of cr@p all day long.

Wow, you're certainly as delusional as Charlie but unlike Charlie, no one pays any attention to you.

Charlie's own father and brother says he has a problem. Clearly he is a highly functional addict that has enablers in his life. It is sad, I like Charlie but if someone doesn't step in he will DOA just like Michael Jackson!! Please get help Charlie, quit making excuses.

Someone at Warner or CBS needs to remind Carlos Estévez AKA "Charlie Sheen" that - No travaljo, no dinero.
Carlos, just go away, we all got the message already, you are a jackass junkie with no class.
