"WB has accused Mr. Sheen of having physical and mental disabilities," the filing says. "According to WB, health care experts have observed Mr. Sheen in an alleged 'manic' and/or 'bipolar' state; other health-care experts have described Mr. Sheen as suffering from 'hypomanic' psychological state. WB further claims Mr. Sheen has had a rapid physical and mental deterioration of this condition. WB bluntly states that Mr. Sheen is very ill," according to the court document.

Did Sheen Want Help?

The filing notes that "on or about March 7, 2011, WB refused to reasonably accommodate Mr. Sheen from Warner Bros. claim that Mr. Sheen has an alleged illness and need for medical care and/or treatment when it terminated his employment contract. Rather than accommodate Mr. Sheen for Warner Bros. claim that Mr. Sheen has alleged physical and mental disabilities, WB instead terminated Mr. Sheen's employment agreement."

The allegation by Sheen is that his termination is a violation of FEHA Against Defendant (Fair Employment and Housing Act).

Vanity Cards

The filing states that Lorre "repeatedly made offensive, derogatory and damaging comments about Mr. Sheen and his alleged physical and mental illness, and harrassed Mr. Sheen on the set of the Series."

Sheen's attorney's cite various examples of "harassing statements" Mr. Lorre made in his "vanity cards" that appear at the end of Mr. Lorre's shows that target "Mr. Sheen's alleged illness." Sheen's lawyers say the five listed in the court filing contain obvious references to Mr. Sheen. Here is one example:

"We employ a highly paid Hollywood professional who has years of experience with putting his life at risk. And sadly no, I'm not talking about our stuntman."

Sheen's Finances

Without his nearly $2-million-per-episode salary from "Two and a Half Men," Charlie Sheen has been forced to find new ways to score some cash. But replacing that salary hasn't been easy.

While reality TV might seem like a good fit, but reality TV producer Michael Hirschorn has his doubts.

"I think he probably is too crazy even for reality TV. They'd want to know he is going to show up and I think the network would have a real question about that," said Hirschorn.

Sheen has always seen himself as a film actor first. He used his track record to jab his former co-star Jon Cryer, telling E News on Tuesday, "When I'm starring in multi-million dollar films and he's begging me for a supporting role, I'll say, 'You left me out in the cold.'"

Yet it doesn't seem like any multi-million dollar films are on the horizon.

"Charlie Sheen has made a lot of statements about movies he may or may not be doing. Right now there is nothing solid," said Matthew Belloni of the Hollywood Reporter.

Sheen is also reportedly looking into getting involved in selling merchandise.

"Charlie has been talking to Live Nation about putting together some sort of merchandising deal to get some of his new catch phrases - like Vatican assassin warlock - onto T-shirts, etc." said Belloni.

Sheen is also looking to Twitter for income.

Once TV's highest paid sitcom star, Sheen has reportedly inked a deal with Ad.ly to endorse products on Twitter.

Sheen told TMZ his primary motivation for joining Twitter last week was that it's a "cash cow." And, as he pointed out to TMZ, "I'm unemployed."
