Amidst the tireless rants of the infamous Charlie Sheen, amidst the bi-winning, the tiger blood, the trolls, the cooking shows, the goddesses, the 7-gram rocks, the 6-pack abs, the one-speed, the melting of faces and the explosive devices, Charlie Sheen actually said something that might not have been as nonsensical as the rest.
When Sheen was asked on 20/20 if he planned on suing Two and a Half Men‘s creator Chuck Lorre and CBS, he replied “Wouldn’t you? I don’t have a job!”
Now, his lawsuit appears to be more legitimate than anything else he’s said in the past week, as Chuck Lorre has decided to “lawyer up” as well. As Perez Hilton put it, while Lorre’s lawyer, Howard Weitzman, is denying the suit’s legitimacy, the simple fact Lorre decided to hire a lawyer suggests this is perhaps not as cut and dry as initially perceived.
Weitzman released the following statement:
“The allegations in the complaint against Mr. Lorre are as recklessly false and unwarranted as Mr. Sheen’s rantings in the media. The accusations are simply imaginary. This lawsuit is about a fantasy ‘lottery’ pay-day for Charlie Sheen. Chuck Lorre’s concern has been and continues to be about Mr. Sheen’s health.
Sounds sketchy. I really think Dana White’s idea is the best option for both parties at this point.
Can you say “Steel Cage Match?”
White told TMZ “BJ Penn is fighting Jon Fitch on Saturday, but [Charlie and Chuck] are more than welcome to be the co-main event.” Wow.
White then went on to predict the match, saying “I have Sheen winning by brutal knockout.”
I’ll take Lorre by submission.
No response yet from Sheen or Lorre’s people, but fingers are crossed.
UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar is very ill, reports TMZ. UFC president Dana White said he likely has an intestinal disorder that will require major surgery.
Lesnar was forced to cancel a fight last week after he was diagnosed with mono. However, White says his current condition is not mono, nor is it HIV or cancer.
“There’s a possibility Lesnar will never fight again,” said White.
