Charlie Sheen -- I'm Suing Lorre and Warner Bros!

3/7/2011 8:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen will sue Chuck Lorre and Warner Bros ... TMZ has learned.

Charlie's lawyer, Marty Singer, tells TMZ, he believes Lorre is behind the move to fire Charlie from "Two and a Half Men" and that Lorre has interfered with Charlie's contract.

Singer doesn't buy Warner Bros. explanation that Charlie committed moral turpitude by admitting to drug use.  Singer says when Charlie was going to plead guilty to a felony last year over the domestic violence incident in Aspen, Warner Bros. was not only ok with it, they renegotiated Charlie's contract.

Singer claims the real reason Warner Bros. gave Charlie the boot is because he insulted Lorre, and that's not reason to fire him.

And, Singer says, Charlie isn't the first star who couldn't co-exist with Lorre.  Roseanne Barr and Brett Butler also couldn't work with Chuck.  On the other side of the coin, Lorre is the most successful producer in TV currently, with three hit shows on the air -- "Two and a Half Men," "The Big Bang Theory" and "Mike and Molly."

What an idiot. 1.8 million a week and he couldn't behave and act like an adult. Ignorance can be taught but stupid is forever. Charlie Sheen is stupid.

JUST LEFT THE SAME COMMENT BELOW AT THE WARNER BROS. SITE.

REMOVE any current or future Two and a Half Men episodes from your line up. Until YOUR star is committed or seeks help for his lunatic, murderous rantings...you should suspend all airings of this show...ALL RE-RUNS, everything.

I will be BOYCOTTING all products advertised while airing episodes and will be sending letters to those advertisers telling them WHY.

You are contributing to an extremely violent mans narcissistic behavior.

This is the FIRST time I have left a comment in any forum like this...please take this seriously.

Not exactly great company to put him with. No one gets along with Roseanne Barr, either (just ask all of her ex- husbands). Brett Butler was a drug addict/alcoholic just like Sheen.

Sorry Charlie. You are #Losing.
