Charlie Sheen is being sued for $20 million for allegedly trying to ruin the reality show that was planned.
Actor Charlie Sheen is accused of destroying the reality television project about himself and his family by television producer Ed Meyer.
The producer claims Charlie, 45, conspired to interfere with contractual relations and that his parents, Martin Sheen and his wife Janet, acted as “co-conspirators” in destroying the reality program.
But actor Martin Sheen and Janet were not named as co-defendants in the filing.
The lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Tuesday, using Charlie’s birth named, Carlos Irwin Estevez.
The documents claim: “Starting on January 4, 2010, Defendant Carlos Irwin Estevez, along with co-conspirators Martin Sheen and Janet Sheen, all non-parties to the Reality Show deal, did internationally and tortuously: threaten, interfere with and restrain, and also conspire to: threaten, interfere with and restrain the Plaintiff’s reality television project starring their relative Joe Estevez, titled: ‘About The Sheens’ aka ‘Being Sheen’ aka ‘Sheen Reality,’ thus destroying the contractual relationships and damaging the Plaintiff Ed Meyer.”
Meyer is seeking at least $20 million in damages “for the outrageous tortuous conduct” of Sheen.
But Charlie Sheen’s lawyer, Marty Singer, has blasted the lawsuit, stating, ‘This is the most ridiculous lawsuit I have ever seen in my 30-year career. My client doesn’t even know who this person is.’
