Selma Blair has been dismissed from FX’s “Anger Management” series by Lionsgate Television.
Blair’s departure is said to be due to lead actor and producer Charlie Sheen threatening to walk out today, unless she was forced to go.
Sheen’s outburst was reportedly triggered when he learnt that Blair had allegedly complained to executives about the actor regularly being late and having a shoddy work ethic.
Sheen reportedly reminded “everyone” that he was the show’s star and allegedly threatened the show’s producers, calling on them to back his decision by working out an exit strategy for his co-star.
Blair played Dr Kate Wales, Sheen’s therapist on the program.
