Charlie Sheen sue strip club

Charlie Sheen sue strip club

Charlie Sheen sue strip club, Sheen threatens to sue strip club, Actor Charlie Sheen, 46, reportedly threatened to sue a New York strip club  for naming its VIP room after him. The private room, which was named after Sheen last year, costs $250 to get in and offers food  that is eaten off the bodies of scantily clad women. Sheen) apparently said the room could damage his reputation Just as you would associate Kim Kardashian with plastic surgery, the same could be said for Charlie Sheen and strip clubs. Beyond that, Kim and Charlie are more alike than you might think.
A couple of months ago, the reality star sicced her lawyers on the doc who used her image for his plastic surgery billboard — not because Kimmy drew the line at slapping her name on the surgeon’s work; rather, she didn’t like the fact that her cat face was bringing in new business for Dr. Victor Ramirez and she wasn’t getting a piece of the plastic pie.

Well, same goes for Sheen. Sort of. The former Two and a Half Men star (and future Anger Management actor) is threatening to sue a New York strip club for naming a room in his honour. His reason? It could damage his reputation. Ha!

The club, Cheetahs, has a VIP section called the “Charlie Sheen Room.” According to Page Six, for a mere $250, patrons can eat sushi off the bodies of the establishment’s goddesses in the private space, which is covered in pictures of the gold-toothed warlock. Shudder.

Sheen’s lawyers have already issued a cease-and-desist letter to the gentleman’s club, demanding the Sheen-ness of it be removed. The attorneys claim the usage of his name would be detrimental to his persona.

Sam Zherka, president of the parent company that owns Cheetahs, told Page Six they created the Charlie Sheen Room last year because, “We figured it would be comical to name a room after him. It was a room where you could dine on sushi served on cellophane on the body of one of our entertainers, not where you do crack.

“How could sushi damage Charlie Sheen’s reputation?” Zherka continued. “We thought dedicating a room to dine in his honour would help repair and elevate his image. He should have called us up and thanked us.”

Zherka added: “We have now removed his name, he wasn’t doing big business for us anyway. We had a little ritual and threw his image in garbage — a celebration of Charlie Sheen being dumped.

The executives at Cheetahs Gentlemen’s Club in Manhattan have named a VIP room in honour of Sheen, who is infamous for his wild ways. They have even decorated the booth with his pictures.
Sheen’s lawyer Marty Singer has sent a cease-and-desist letter demanding to have the actor’s name and image removed from the room.
“We sent a cease-and-desist letter and they complied. This matter has nothing to do with Sheen’s reputation. You can’t use any celebrity name to promote a business without permission. They had no right to use his name,” nypost.com quoted Singer as saying.
However, Sam Zherka, president of the company that owns Cheetahs said the room has already been renamed.
“We figured it would be comical to name a room after him… Then we got notification from his lawyer to cease and desist, claiming the usage of his name would be detrimental to his persona. They said they would sue us for millions if we carried on.

Topless mecca Cheetahs set up a VIP room named after the warlock last year following his infamous tiger blood-fueled TV appearances. For $250 a head, guests could eat sushi off the body of the club's goddesses in the privacy of the 'Charlie Sheen Room,' which was plastered with grinning pictures of him.

But Sheen's lawyers made sure Cheetahs would not be winning with that strategy. They slapped chiefs of the West 43rd Street 'gentlemen's club' with a cease-and-desist letter, demanding the room be immediately dismantled.

Sam Zherka, president of the parent company that owns Cheetahs, told the New York Post it created the Charlie Sheen space a year ago because, 'We figured it would be comical to name a room after him. It was a room where you could dine on sushi served on cellophane on the body of one of our entertainers, not where you do crack.
