Charlie Sheen has settled his $100 million suit against Warner Bros. Television and producer Chuck Lorre for his firing from the hit TV show Two and a Half Men.
Sheen had claimed breach of contract and discrimination based on a belief that Sheen suffered from bipolar disorder. A previous report said Sheen would get an immediate payment of $25 million under the settlement.
The show is continuing with Ashton Kutcher playing an Internet billionaire who bought the home once owned by Sheen's character.
