Even though he has been replaced on Two and Half Men, there is still the issue of his 100 million dollar lawsuit, but beyond that, new information as to his relationship and contract with the show has come to light. Let’s start with the upside. He was contracted to make $2 million per episode and his contract says that he will be paid for every episode produced, not for every episode he appears in. This means that Warner Brothers still could be indebted to him for the amount unless they can justify breaking the contract with him. In other words, they will most likely have to explain to a court their reasoning in firing him, and that judge will have to decide whether it was sufficient grounds to end the relationship. Of course, Warner will no doubt use his personal tribulations as the reason, but depending on how the agreement is worded, that might not be enough.

The flaw in the slaw, if rumors are true however, is that he took out a loan based on his income of $10 million from Warner Brothers, which he had only paid back around $700,000 taken out of his paycheck in installments for the first episodes of the last season. But since he was fired before the loan could be repaid in full, it may that the $2 million he would have earned will get somewhat sucked up by that.

Still even without being employed for awhile, Sheen has managed to rake in the cash, more than he would have if he had worked. His tour, despite its problems, earned him a pretty heavy chunk of change at about $7 million and his internet popularity has earned him $2 million in endorsements. This plus what he did earn after loans and with the addition of syndication fees for the episodes he did film before being fired, gave him a total of around $40 million. And there is probably more to come before the year is out, so he is still winning.
