Sheen threatens to sue strip club

Los Angeles - Charlie Sheen has threatened to sue a strip club for naming a room after him.

New York's nightspot Cheetahs named their VIP room in the actor's honour last year and for $250 customers could go into the private room - which is covered with pictures of Charlie - to eat sushi off the bodies of scantily clad women.

However, the Anger Management actor - who was fired from Two and a Half Men last year because of his erratic behaviour and wild partying with his 'goddesses' - had his lawyer sent a cease-and-desist letter to New York's Cheetahs, claiming the Charlie Sheen Room could damage his reputation, much to the bemusement of the club.

Sam Zherka, president of the parent company that owns Cheetahs, told the New York Post newspaper: "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."

'Would be detrimental'

"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.

"How could sushi damage Charlie Sheen's reputation? 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."

The company have now compiled with the request in a "ritual" removing of Charlie's image.

Sam 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."

Charlie's lawyer confirmed the actor had sought to take action against the club.

Marty Singer said: "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."
