Charlie Sheen Sued in Conspiracy Case

3/1/2011 1:56 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen has yet another problem ... he's going to be sued for allegedly derailing an attempt to replace Charlie with his estranged uncle on "Two and a Half Men."

Charlie Sheen Uncle Joe Esteves


The suit claims Charlie and his dad, Martin Sheen, along with his mom, Janet, conspired to "interfere and restrain" Chuck Lorre from replacing Charlie with Joe Estevez -- Charlie's estranged uncle.

The suit claims the plan was either to have Joe replace Charlie or appear in a spin-off of the sitcom, titled "Uncle Joe."

And the suit claims, Charlie, Martin and Janet also conspired to kill a proposed reality show titled "About the Sheens."

The plaintiff in the case is attorney Ed Meyer, who worked as Joe's manager -- Joe is not a named plaintiff. Meyer tells TMZ he was Joe's business partner in the reality show.  Meyer says he's now estranged from Joe.

The suit seeks at least $20 million in damages.

I KNEW this mess has been brewing on the set for a long time!!! I also knew it was the alcohol/drugs that were keeping Charlie in check, but now that he's sobered up, it's all pouring out of him.

I've never watched the show, and I don't plan on starting, but it would be so funny if the replaced him...with ANYONE! Him and his BIG head need to be knocked down a few pegs.

Charlie, you don't look too good. You sound terrible. It is time for you to ask our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to come into your life. It's not too late. Ask Him to help you with your situation. He will help you turn all this craziness around. Trust Him.

Incase you're wondering who filed the suit I'll suggest the uncle. I doubt CBS or WB would want to extend ANY relationship with CS, legal or otherwise.

Rumor has it that Angus T. Jones was about to be replaced by Frank Stallone.

"the funny one of the family" was one of his quotes. What a douche. Does this uncle really think he deserves a show because who he is related to?

Is everyone in this family nuts?
