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.

Charlie is as funny as a heart attack,he gets in an accident gets a new face and we get someone that can contribute to an other wise great show.
Charlie isn't acting he's playing himself, an egotistical a**.

They're just getting desperate and trying to bluff Charlie into dropping his legitimate lawsuit. We all know that douche canceled the rest of the season because he got butt hurt over Sheen stepping up to him verbally. It's all do***ented and as much as TMZ tries to character assassinate Sheen TMZ has helped do***ent the entire ordeal and will help Sheen win his case like it or not. How does that feel Harvey? I know you tried to paint Sheen as an anti-semite but you failed.

lolololololololol!! No, lolololololoolololol!! Then they blame Charlie for saying there's other conspiracy theories lolol!! If Lorre was asinine enough to contemplate using a relative estranged from Charlie to play Charlie or his uncle even in a spin off then Lorre must be really, really desperate to save his golden egg laying show lol!! No good, Charlie is the character and nobody could take his place! Nice of Lorre, IF it's true lol, to try and use his estranged family against him though - class, NOT lol!!

Chuck Lorrie is playing games with Charlie. Payback would be Charlie being replaced with his uncle for an episode or two. It could be a brilliant move financially and ease in to a permanent new star while creating a buzz of free advertising. Feeds two birds with one seed....Piss off the dwindling Charlie camp and Chuck gets in a dig and final word.

Seriously...? I never thought C. Sheen was an Anti-Semite....who are you kidding? Harvey does not believe that. C'mon, it's just another way for Poor Charlie to feel like a victim, and get misguided peeps on his sinking self-pity boat.
