Morals clause unlikely in Sheen’s contract
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Charlie Sheen has been far too busy with his at-home drug rehab project lately to spend much time reading his contract. But he seems sure of one thing: It contains no provision that says he can’t enjoy himself as he pleases.
“I haven’t read it,” the wayward star of CBS’ hit sitcom “Two and a Half Men” told radio host Dan Patrick last week, but “I don’t think it covers, ‘Let me totally dominate and interfere with your personal life.’”
Sheen was referring to a morals clause, the contractual provision that since the early days of Hollywood has governed any conduct by a performer that might pose problems for the studio.
Given that in less than two years Sheen has been in rehab twice, he would seemingly be the sort of person a morals clause was designed for, however a spokesman for Warner Bros. Television declined to comment.
