Charlie Sheen Threatens to Sue Strip Club Over VIP Room's Name


Charlie Sheen


A lawyer for the 'Anger Management' star confirms that a cease-and-desist letter has been sent to the New York club, before stating, 'This matter has nothing to do with Sheen's reputation.'

Charlie Sheen has got a VIP room at a strip club in New York City named after him, but he apparently didn't find it amusing. The former "Two and a Half Men" star threatened to sue Cheetahs if the club refuses to strip the room of his name on the base that it could damage his reputation, New York Post's Page Six reported.

"We figured it would be comical to name a room after him," Sam Zherka, president of the parent company that owns Cheetahs, explained why they chose to use Sheen's name for the room. "It was a room where you could dine on sushi served on cellophane on the body of one of our entertainers, not where you do crack."

"Then we got notification from his lawyer to cease and desist, claiming the usage of his name would be detrimental to his persona. They said they would sue us for millions if we carried on," Zherka went on to dish. "How could sushi damage Charlie Sheen's reputation? We thought dedicating a room to dine in his honor would help repair and elevate his image."

Zherka then said that Sheen "should have called us up and thanked us." He added, "We have now removed his name, he wasn't doing big business for us anyway. We had a little ritual and threw his image in garbage - a celebration of Charlie Sheen being dumped."

Sheen's lawyer, Marty Singer, confirmed that Cheetahs has complied to the cease-and-desist letter they sent. He, however, clarified on the reason behind the legal move. "This matter has nothing to do with Sheen's reputation," he stated. "You can't use any celebrity name to promote a business without permission. They had no right to use his name."

Per Page Six, the "Charlie Sheen Room" at Cheetahs was created following Sheen's infamous meltdown back in 2011. It was decorated with grinning pictures of the "Anger Management" star. Guests will have to spend $250 per head for the room.
