Charlie Sheen is finally breaking his silence about co-star Selma Blair's sudden departure from "Anger Management," weeks after reports surfaced that he had her fired from the show.

Sheen, 48, told Jay Leno Wednesday, "One of our primary characters, Selma Blair, who played Kate, was written out because [the show] was not about our relationship, and the problem was too many people were still excited about the 'Two and a Half Men' character and thought the 'Anger Management' character was a little dull."

"So, um, that is not the case anymore. Her character leaves, and I start circling the drain. So it's really fun to watch and hella fun to play," the actor said, adding that he now refers to the series as "Anger Management 2.0 - the reboot."

Blair, who played Sheen's love interest, exited the show in June. Sources told The Hollywood Reporter that she was dismissed by Sheen via a profanity-laced text after she reportedly questioned his work ethic on the series.

Sheen was famously fired from "Two And a Half Men" two years ago after falling out with show creator Chuck Lorre.
