SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) - An attorney for the "Two and a Half Men" producer who's being sued by Charlie Sheen is calling the suit's allegations unfounded.
Attorney Howard Weitzman issued the statement on behalf of his client, Chuck Lorre, who was named along with Warner Bros. in the suit filed Thursday that seeks $100 million.
Weitzman says the allegations against Lorre are as recklessly false and unwarranted as "Mr. Sheen's rantings in the media."
Sheen's breach of contract lawsuit alleges that Warner Bros. bowed to Lorre's desire to punish Sheen, and that the producer and studio conspired to blame the actor for causing production to stop.
Weitzman says Lorre's concern has been about Sheen's health.
