Selma Blair Threatens to Sue Charlie Sheen Over 'Anger Management' Firing


Selma Blair Threatens to Sue Charlie Sheen Over 'Anger Management' Firing


The former Kate depicter reportedly demands the money she would have got if she had still worked on the show.

Selma Blair didn't leave "Anger Management" of her own accord and has planned to sue those who made her lose the job. TMZ reports that the actress threatens Charlie Sheen and Lionsgate Entertainment with a retaliation lawsuit for wrongful termination.

Words are, Blair is now demaning the $1.2 million she would have got it she had continued working on the show. If she doesn't get what she asks for, she will file the lawsuit. Her lawyer and Lionsgate's are reportedly trying to reach a settlement.

Blair was cut from the FX comedy in June after she complained about Sheen's poor work ethic. According to a source, before the reported rift between the two actors, there had been plans to write Blair off the show because "America didn't want to see Charlie with just one girlfriend." However, due the on-set rift, her exit "was accelerated."

Sheen recently denied that a personal conflict between him and Blair caused her departure. "One of our primary characters, Selma Blair, who played Kate, was written out because [the show] was not about our relationship, and the problem was too many people were still excited about the 'Two and a Half [Men]' character and thought the 'Anger Management' character was a little dull," he said on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on Wednesday night, September 11. "So, um, that is not the case anymore."

Laura Bell Bundy has now been added to the cast following Blair's exit as Charlie's new sex-study research partner, while Brian Austin Green returns as Sean, the boyfriend of Charlie's ex-wife Jen, in a permanent basis.
