Gary Busey

6/22/2011 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Gary Busey is at the center of a new controversy after a woman allegedly complained about the actor's behavior on the set of his new horror movie.

Sources connected with the upcoming movie "Mansion of Blood" tell us, Gary had simply become too difficult to work with -- and was booted from the production after a woman on set complained about inappropriate comments Gary made. 

According to sources, Gary had already finished shooting about half of his scenes -- so the script was rewritten ... and another actor filled in to shoot the rest.

Gary's rep tells us, "The situation was plagued by contractual issues and misunderstandings from the outset. Gary considers this episode concluded and has no further comment on the matter."

We contacted producers ... who DENY Gary was fired ... telling us, "Mr. Busey remains in the cast of the movie" ... and insist Gary has "committed no improper acts in connection with his role in the movie."

I don't think it's fair to say he exhibited any "bully behavior" at all on the Apprentice. He was actually very kind to everyone on the show, but very unpredictable with not much of a filter or self-awareness. He would be extremely difficult to work with. It's pretty sad because this obviously stems from his near-fatal brain injury. I often felt guilty for laughing at his bizarre antics on the Apprentice, but he was pretty 'out there' and it made for fun TV.

Truth    

DUDE WAS A COMPLETE FRUITCAKE AND NUT HOUSE ON CELEB APPRENTICE. HOWEVER, GARY SUFFERED A TERRIBLE HEAD INJURY IN THAT MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT OF HIS 20 ODD YRS AGO.. THEY SAY THAT CAUSED TREMENDOUS BRAIN INJURY WHICH REFLECTS ON HIS WEIRD AZZ BEHAVIOR TODAY. I BELIEVE IT 110%!!

It can't be easy being Gary Busey's rep!
After watching him on Apprentice I can't imagine how he gets any acting jobs in Hollywood.
There are valid reasons for his behavior but in the end he is still the way he is. On a movie set you have to have the social skills to get along with people and he doesn't seem to have an inner filter that would enable him to do that.

Wow, some of you people are so mean spirited. He's not a nut case. He was a completely normal individual before the motorcycle accident he had which caused a tremendous amount of brain damage. For those that didn't know this, look it up. It's a very sad story once you realize what happened to the poor guy.

It will probably be an infinitively less entertaining movie without him.

Hollywood is missing out on a great T.V. opportunity if a producer can't get Gary Busey & Charlie Sheen working together on a sitcom.

man that head injury he had years ago has really taken it's toll. He was 'out there' before the accident, but he is REALLY 'out there' now.
