Warner Bros. To Charlie Sheen: Stop Lying About 'Men'

4/14/2011 3:53 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Warner Bros. has just fired off a letter to Charlie Sheen's lawyer, saying Charlie is lying that he's "in discussions" over returning to "Two and a Half Men" -- this according to a letter obtained by TMZ.

In the letter, the Warner Bros. lawyer says, "Those statements are false.  As you know, there have been no discussions, there are no discussions and there will be no discussions, regarding his returning to or having any involvement with the series."

Charlie said on radio this week ... discussions had been taking place and there was an 85% chance he'd return to the series.

0414_charlie_small_audio2Contrary to what Charlie has been saying, TMZ has been reporting there is no chance of Charlie returning. 

The WB letter makes it clear ... the door on Charlie has been slammed shut.

The termination letter makes it pretty clear that Charlie will never again work for WB. You can't violate that many terms of a legal contract, cost a multi-million dollar corporation that much money, and still put it out there like they'd welcome him back.

That's right, but that's exactly what THEY did with Sheen's contract.

OUCH! Way to go, Warner Bros! Way to stick it to Charlie! It's about time he got called out on some of his BS! Now even Charlie's most die-hard fans have solid proof that he's a LIAR.

Loves it!

~~~~~~~~~~

Absolutely!

But, as you can see for yourself Charlie's most die hard fans don't give a hoot for the truth if it doesn't fit their agenda.

"We can have some insight into the legal matters via reading and comprehending the lawsuit. And we can actually listen to THE LAWYER giving some details of the discussions, while THIS letter gives nothing but "You're lying"."

**********

Sources?? Please post them, I'm sure the rest of us who were late to this show would love to see the lawsuit, as well as hear "the lawyer" giving some details of the discussions! Otherwise, it's just your assertion that these things are available for others to see and judge.

Are you asserting that WB violated the terms of Charlie's contract in some way? Do you have a link to either the contract or where this allegation was made?

The fact of the matter is that Charlie's "lawsuit" will never even get its day in court after arbitration. WB has, under the terms of the contract Charlie signed, the right to appeal to the arbitrator for damages... up to and including what it cost them every single day that Charlie showed up late, showed up incapacitated, or failed to show up at all. He will not get out of arbitration with a cent from WB, and his "lawsuit" will be thrown out.

Contract law is much different from the world of Hollywood. It operates on clear, concise terms and conditions. It outlines things that parties agree to do and penalties for either side should their obligations not be performed in the manner set out in the contract. There is very little room for "he said, she said" in contracts and, with cameras rolling at rehearsals and tapings, I have no doubt that WB has a wealth of proof as to their allegations.

Stick a fork in the idea that Sheen will ever work for WB again, that turkey is beyond done!"

"Thanks for shedding another tremendously insightful light on the matter, Dr.Dr.jur. Doughnut. Your expertise leaves me nothing short of deeply impressed.

MMMMMMMMMMMMMMWWwwwaaaaaaaaaahhahahahaaaaaaaahahahahahaaaa."

Obviously you would consider it impressive in light of your inability to offer even one cogent comment regarding the termination letter. Even one comment that displays that you are able to comprehend the enormity of the violations that Sheen committed would be nice, rather than simply attacking other commenters.

I'm relatively sure they have REELS of said footage. ;)

I think he should remake "Leave It To Beaver". He could play Ward Cleaver. Octomom as June Cleaver with Lindsay Lohan as "The Beaver". Tony Dow can still play Wally. Just a thought. A stupid, incoherent idea but a thought nonetheless.

Stating that you read the lawsuit in no way enlightens the rest of us as to whether or not such material is available in the public domain. Please link your sources, would you?

Just like I'm sure Charlie has a wealth of proof;)

Oh yes...REELS. You mean the ones they did after every season, with Jon Cryer being the primary actor messing up the lines?
