Selma Blair Fired, Leaving Anger Management After Charlie Sheen Feud

The actress’ widely-speculated exit from the FX series became official on Tuesday night, with studio Lionsgate TV announcing in a statement, “We are confirming that Selma Blair will not be returning to Anger Management and we wish her the very best.”
Sheen reportedly advocated for Blair’s firing, alleging that she complained about working with him.
The actress was reportedly unhappy with Sheen’s work ethic, accusing him of arriving late and being unprepared.
Producers and the co-stars were in negotiations this week to see if a resolution could be reached, although Sheen was adamant that Blair — who played his colleague and sometime love interest — leave the show, or he would quit.
It seems the actor has gotten his way, and the show will continue filming its 90-episode order without her.
Sheen, of course, infamously clashed with Chuck Lorre on the set of “Two and a Half Men,” leading to the star’s controversial firing in 2011.
