CBS Cancels "Two and a Half Men" After Charlie Sheen's Car Splurge

Charlie Sheen has always been a controversial person for his way of spending the money he earns in the extremely-popular "Two and a Half Men" sitcom, but his recent actions finally convinced CBS to take action against him. CBS has thus canceled production of the sitcom for the rest of the season, the company announced in a statement yesterday.

Although the fact that Charlie Sheen spent around $800,000 on cars for her girlfriends, it seems that the reason which convinced the guys over at CBS to suspend the show was Sheen's recent blast on radio during which he criticized the show creators.

A few hours later, CBS issued a statement in which it announced its decision:

"Based on the totality of Charlie Sheen's statements, conduct and condition, CBS and Warner Bros. Television have decided to discontinue production of 'Two and a Half Men' for the remainder of the season," the statement read.

Charlie Sheen hurried to reply, saying in an open letter to

"What does this say about Haim Levine after he tried to use his words to judge and attempt to degrade me. I gracefully ignored this folly for 177 shows ... I fire back once and this contaminated little maggot can't handle my power and can't handle the truth," he continued. "I wish him nothing but pain in his silly travels especially if they wind up in my octagon."

Charlie Sheen made the front page of newspapers several times in the last couple of years, being often linked with drugs and alcohol abuse. The last time he was bought in the spotlights was a few days ago when he decided to pay around $800,000 on luxury cars for his adult film stars friends with whom he had sex just before being hospitalized.
