Sheen publicist quits over star’s behaviour

Wednesday 02 March 2011 01:00 GMT

Charlie Sheen's publicist has resigned after their relationship became strained following the actor’s bizarre interview with the celebrity website TMZ. In a statement, Stan Rosenfield said he was “unable to work effectively” with Sheen.

It followed the controversial star’s implication that Rosenfield had lied to the media by saying Sheen was taken to hospital for an allergic reaction after trashing a room in New York’s Plaza Hotel. Rosenfield added that he had been with Sheen through three hospital stays in three months related to the star’s wild behaviour.

Meanwhile, Sheen, 45, has said he is not satisfied with an agreement by Warner Bros Television to pay the crew of his sitcom Two And A Half Men for half of the eight episodes |cancelled when producers tired of their star’s off-screen antics.

He called it “a start” and said his efforts “are paying off” but said he planned to keep up his media blitz until the crew was paid for the rest |of the shows. He also said getting compensation for series co-stars Jon Cryer and Angus T Jones was “next” on his to-do list.

Sheen has left open the possibility for reconciliation with most of those he has attacked in recent days. But when it comes to getting his show back on the air, he has made it clear he wants it on his terms. He has demanded a pay increase of £1.8m per episode for a 10th season.
