It seems that Charlie Sheen was feeling the pinch that comes from earning a mere $2 million per episode of ‘Two and a Half Men’ and so he needed to borrow a little folding money – $10 million!!
Charlie Sheen borrowed the $10 million from Warner Brothers during his final season of ‘Two and a Half Men’.
Charlie who was subsequently fired from the show last year following a huge battle with co-creator Chuck Lorre, apparently over Charlie’s self-destructive and extremely hedonistic lifestyle, received the vast loan from the show’s bosses in May 2010 under the condition he would pay it back during the first 13 episodes.
The 47-year-old Charlie – who was receiving over $2 million per show – had $769,230.77 deducted from his first 13 pay checks of the season with the accrued interest taken from his 14th payday.
As Charlie was fired following the 16th episode, it is understood that he paid Warner Brothers the entire amount owed including interest. Perhaps Charlie was lucky he borrowed the money – maybe he would have been fired even sooner otherwise!
