Charlie Sheen 'Anger Management' News: Threatens to Quit if Selma Blair isn't Fired? [VIDEO]

Charlie Sheen's feud with Selma Blair has reached new heights, as the actor told producers of Anger Management that he'll quit the show if Blair isn't fired.
The co-stars have starred on Anger Management together since the show's inception in early 2012, but Sheen caught wind that Blair was badmouthing him behind his back. She had allegedly complained to the Anger Management producers about Sheen's work ethic and his tardiness.
In response, Sheen requested that the actress be fired from the show, and a new report from TMZ on Tuesday said that Sheen threatened to quit the show entirely if she isn't removed. Sheen told producers on Monday that if the termination process did not start today, Tuesday, he would walk away.
Anger Management was picked up for an additional 90 episodes after the 10-episode first season, meaning it would be eligible for syndication. Depending on the success of the show, Sheen could be making anywhere from $75 and $200 million. The actor has completed about 50 episodes of the show, which would prevent it from entering syndication if producers decided to shut down production.
As Sheen requested, Blair was not on the set of the show Monday, though it's also possible that she wasn't even scheduled to work. On Tuesday morning, Blair was spotted out and about with her child and reporters asked for a comment but she didn't say much.
"I don't know anything," she dismissed, shaking her head. The actress took to Twitter Monday night after the incident leaked. Blair simply tweeted, "Goodnight dear followers. Life is good." Though she did not mention the incident, it can be surmised that she was indirectly commenting on it.
Executives at Anger Management's network FX are allegedly discussing a plan going forward. It is unknown at this time what Blair's ultimate fate will be, though Sheen's influence (he is an executive producer for the show as well) may sway their decision to his side.
Anger Management is currently airing episodes of season 2 on FX and Fox stations.
