London: Charlie Sheen has been threatened with legal action by his former employers over the use of photographs of himself to promote his new show.
According to sources, the makers of TV comedy ‘Two and a Half Men’ have told Charlie Sheen to stop using their photos to promote his forthcoming new show ‘Anger Management’, the Telegraph reported.
Lawyers for Warner Bros television studio sent a cease and desist letter to Sheen and the makers of ‘Anger Management’ claiming ownership of at least two photos of the actor from his years with hit show ‘Two and a Half Men’.
The legal letter said the photos were used in material distributed at a TV industry marketing event in January to promote Sheen’s new programme, which is due to be broadcast on the FX network later this year, the sources revealed.
An FX spokesman said that the network had nothing to do with the promotional materials at issue.
