Charlie Sheen borrowed $10m during 'Men'

Charlie Sheen allegedly borrowed $10 million (£6.2 million) against the value of his final contract with Warner Bros for Two and a Half Men.

The actor, who was axed from the comedy earlier this year over a series of outspoken interviews and concern for his erratic behaviour, was reportedly given the cash up front and agreed to pay back across the first 13 episodes of the show's seventh season.

Documents obtained by TMZ revealed that $769,230.77 (£475,754.08) was deducted from the $1.25 million (£770,000) Sheen was paid each episode for the agreed period.

A 14th instalment, which covered the loan's interest, was taken from the actor's paycheck two episodes before the show went into hiatus and Sheen's contract was subsequently terminated.

Last week, Ashton Kutcher was confirmed as the replacement for Sheen on the CBS comedy, with Sheen commenting that Warner Bros "got the right guy".
