Charlie Sheen's LAST MINUTE Departure ... For DC

4/19/2011 4:18 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen might just make it in time for his show in Washington D.C. tonight -- because the actor JUST boarded a private jet in L.A. ... bound straight for the capital.

He can be seen hustling on board the airplane with his remaining goddess Natalie Kenly ... a little over an hour ago at Van Nuys Airport -- after dealing with his custody case all morning.

Charlie's scheduled to perform at DAR Constitution Hall in D.C. at 8pm EST -- and if he's lucky, he'll arrive RIGHT when the curtain opens. Clock's ticking.

Rolex sucks    

I hope it was a Rolex that Brooke sold after all they suck. I seriously doubt Charlie would give a Rolex for a gift.

The first thing that happens with a Rolex is either the clasp fails or the Bezel breaks....

just sayin

CHARLIE SHEEN'S D.C. SHOW SHOULD BE INTERESTING

TUESDAY, APRIL 19, 2011 AT 12:11PM | DAVE ODEGARD | SHARE THIS!
OK, D.C., get ready for Charlie Sheen.

That's right -- the #tigerblood warlock is in town, getting ready for his Torpedo of Truth Tour. Tonight, Charlie will perform at DAR Constitution Hall and all signs point to it being a unique and interesting show.

His act has been receiving crowd reactions from both ends of the spectrum – with the infamous scene of fans booing in Detroit and the audience's standing ovation in Chicago.

Professional critics, however, have pretty much uniform in their panning of it – especially of his Radio City show.

But no matter, it seems D.C. is blessed in its timing on the Torpedo tour. Today, the actor will find out how his $100 million lawsuit against Warner Bros. and Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre will be resolved. Charlie, obviously, wants a public trial, while Warner Bros. and Chuck want to use arbitration, which is part of Charlie's Two and a Half Men contract. Now matter which method the judges rules should be used, it should give Sheen a good jumping off point for the show.

So if you've got tickets for tonight's show, get ready.

He flew across country, thinking he would just be given custody for showing up. Didn't happen. Charlie doesn't seem to be "winning" at anything these days.

Um, perhaps you didnt read up on the custody hearing?

The media was chased out of the room because of "Abuse" that was to be detailed -

At the end of the day, Brooke Mueller, crack addict, still has custody. So go figure.

Charlie, not #winning.

Fly here fly there fly fly losing everywhere!

BTW there are often stipulations in custody agreements on how parents are supposed to treat each other.

Chuckles isnt one for following rules, so look where he has found himself!

Early media reports indicate that, after listening to arguments from both side for hours, the judge in the WB/Lorre v Sheen case may not rule immediately:

What's that some of you have been saying all along - that dealing with Charlie Sheen has probably always been a pain in the rear?

I've also been stating that he had a chance to negotiate his contract before signing it. Its a bit too late now to claim that the contract was "unconscionable" as Singer is - lawyer speak for "Its not fair - wha!"

So now what do we think about Chuckle's claims not to have a clue why he was fired, that WB should have told him that there was a problem? (rhetorical)


Charlie Sheen's Custody Hearing Was a Bust, But How Did His Other Day in Court Go?

Today 4:47 PM PDT by NATALIE FINN AND CLAUDIA ROSENBAUM

It sounds as if there's been bad blood simmering beneath the surface for some time now. Years, in fact.

Though Charlie Sheen had been collecting the heftiest per-episode paycheck in the sitcom biz, Warner Bros. recalls that the negotiations that got Sheen his lucrative contract nearly eight years ago were "a nightmare."

And facing off against the former Two and a Half Men star now, under even less friendly cir***stances, is bringing it all back.

While Sheen was appearing in family court in an unsuccessful bid to get full custody of his 2-year-old twins, the rest of his legal team was elsewhere within the halls of justice to argue that the actor should be allowed to take his $100 million lawsuit against his ex-bosses in front of a judge.

"Our position is, the arbitition clause is not valid," head attorney Martin Singer stated today before L.A. Superior Court Judge Allan J. Goodman, referring to a clause in Sheen's contract that refers contract disputes to private arbitration rather than a public trial.

"They would like this to be handled in arbitration where each party is allowed just one deposition and then it is up to arbitrator," Singer said. "That in itself is unconscionable."

When Sheen was going up against a "$26 billion entity" when working out the terms of his Men deal, the actor did not have the ability to negotiate a no-arbitration cause, Singer argued.

Meanwhile, Warner Bros. doesn't have fond memories of those days, either.

"It was a nightmare," studio counsel John Spiegel said in court of the "long and protracted" 2003 contract talks that resulted in Sheen's sweet deal. "He had a long list of things he wanted."

Among the things that Sheen wanted and subsequently got, according to Spiegel, were $2 million an episode for a guaranteed 48 episodes; a narrowing of his morality clause (that should answer a few questions right there); use of the corporate jet; a private hair stylist; and a pass from the first day of rehearsals.

Therefore, Spiegel argued, Sheen could probably have successfully argued to chuck the arbitration clause, as well.

Howard Weitzman, attorney for Men cocreator Chuck Lorre, said that his client is also entitled to arbitration and thinks "we should all be there together."

It's now up to Goodman to decide the fate of Sheen's lawsuit, whether it must be worked out behind closed doors or not. The judge has 30 days to issue a ruling, but the court information officer tells E! News that he hears Goodman might take only a fraction of that time to decide.

As for Sheen, he didn't witness any of this because he had to hightail it to Van Nuys Airport to hop a jet to Washington, D.C., in time for his show tonight. He'll be there a little late, 9 p.m. instead of 8 p.m., but he will be there.
