charlie sheen cbs Charlie Sheen's 'Two and a Half Men' exit leak: All a ploy for more moolah?Don’t be surprised if “Two and a Half Men” star Charlie Sheen suddenly has a change of heart about leaving his castmates one man down.

It’s all just a bargaining chip, according to a source close to Sheen.

“He leaked it to light some fire under their asses to get what he wants,” the source tells E! Online.

The news about Sheen’s possible departure, which People broke Thursday (April 1), was reportedly a shocker to everyone involved with the CBS sitcom.

“When everyone saw the first story about him wanting to leave, it was
like, ‘What the f**k? Where did that come from?’ ” the insider says.
“No one heard anything about this — not his co-stars, the studio, no
one.”

Sheen’s rep reportedly still denies knowledge about the star’s desire
exit, acknowledging the People report and adding, “While he has told
friends [that he did not wish to come back to the show], he has made no
announcement, made no statement or addressed any aspect of this story.”

So has the highest-paid actor on television really tired of the weekly show, or is he simply holding out for more cash? Perhaps all those legal fees are adding up? What do you think?
