(Newser) – How's that for tiger blood? Charlie Sheen settled his wrongful termination lawsuit with Warner Brothers and Two & a Half Men producer Chuck Lorre today for a handy $25 million, TMZ reports. Thanks to the settlement, the actor will also earn around $100 million in syndication profits over the next 7 years for the episodes he's shot. Sheen was canned from show in March for publicly disparaging Lorre and admitting to substance abuse.
