Charlie Sheen's $100M lawsuit put out of its misery (at 75% off)

Charlie Sheen, Warner Bros. and Chuck Lorre have signed a deal to put Sheen's $100-million lawsuit out of its misery. The man who was once TV's highest paid actor sued his former bosses in March, just days after he was fired from "Two and a Half Men."

With the heat of battle behind them, a 75% discount appears to have won the day: The Los Angeles Times last week broke the news of a $25-million Sheen payday on the horizon.

Beyond a statement from Warner Bros. saying that those involved "have resolved their dispute to the parties’ mutual satisfaction," nobody had much to say Monday, according to Company Town. And that's probably for the best, reflecting on the kinds of things Sheen the Tiger-Blooded Warlock had to say back when he was talking nonstop to anyone who would listen.

Sheen was fired from his "Two and a Half Men" gig on March 7, via an 11-page termination letter that in the Ministry's opinion was one of the greatest legal reads of all time.

In other Sheen news of a time-to-play-nice nature, Charlie was spotted Saturday dining with brother Emilio Estevez and parents Martin and Janet Sheen at Ninethirty at W Los Angeles-Westwood. Everyone ordered the salmon, an onlooker said, except for Papa Sheen, who went wild with a burger, hold the onions.
