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.

How is it conspiring and wrong to block a reality show about your family?

Also, how is it wrong to block a studio's attempt to replace you?

Oh, yes, that explains everything!!! Joe Estevez, GET JOE !!!! Chuck Lorre/CBS/Warner Bros yelled!!! We need Joe here in case we can not contain Charlie any longer. A perfect match, Uncle to Charlie!! Joe who? Jon Cryer said. and wouldn't he, uhm, be my uncle too? No, Cryer, joe estevez is NOT YOUR UNCLE. 'uhm, no, joe estevez is not my uncle, but, does WHAT HAS HE DONE FOR ACTING???'Cryer asked. 'Why Jon, he has hundreds of unmemorable credits over decades and decades, with different stage names, using estevez a few times, sheen and PHELAN? and of course, you must know that famous trilogy he did in the 90's, the 'Legend of Roller Blade Seven'? 'No' Cryer. NO? of course not, that is why this whole bit about him taking over is TOTAL BULLCRAP!!! JOE ESTEVEZ IS UP THERE WITH COREY FELDMAN, living off of someone else's legacy. Most of the Estevez/sheens are NUTS

I understand Charlie's concerns, but lets be honest:
He is acting like a little kid.
But at least the girls like him for that...

I don't think Charlie is really aware of just HOW weird he sounds these days. I doubt that Charlie has always been this much of a "space cadet". Never know, maybe he's always been like this. I haven't seen many of his interviews when he was younger.

I guess Charlie laughed at all those "this is your brain on drugs" TV commercials. If the 20 year old version of Charlie Sheen saw the 45 year old version of Charlie Sheen on TV the past few days, he'd probably be making fun of him for being an UN-COOL old burnout with just a few brain cells left.
