Chuck Lorre’s Lawyer Fires Back at Charlie Sheen

Charlie Sheen hasn't been afraid to mince words during his heated dispute with Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre, but Lorre has so far let his vanity cards — and now, his lawyer — do the talking for him. "The allegations in the complaint against Mr. Lorre are as recklessly false and unwarranted as Mr. Sheen's rantings in the media," Lorre's lawyer Howard Weitzman told TMZ today, just hours after Sheen filed suit against the television producer for $100 million. "These accusations are simply imaginary. This lawsuit is about a fantasy 'lottery' pay-day for Charlie Sheen. Chuck Lorre's concern has been and continues to be about Mr. Sheen's health." Sheen himself eschewed the legalese on Twitter this afternoon: "Torpedo away ... You corporate Trolls were warned. And now you've been served!" [TMZ]
