Selma Blair is no longer a cast member on “Anger Management,” reportedly after a dispute with star Charlie Sheen. “We are confirming that Selma Blair will not be returning to Anger Management, and we wish her the very best,” studio Lionsgate said in a statement.

According to Deadline, Blair, who played Sheen’s therapist and lover on the show, had been feuding with Sheen for some time. Sources say she went to the show’s producer to complain about Sheen’s work ethic, or lack thereof – Selma reportedly claimed he’d keep the entire set waiting for hours before he bothered to show up. Although the former “Two and a Half Men” star doesn’t have the direct authority to fire anyone, he apparently refused to film with Blair anymore.

Charlie Sheen reportedly did the honors himself, letting Selma know she was fired via a profanity-ridden text message. It wouldn’t be his first risque text exchange this month. “Teen Mom” celebrity and recent porn star Farrah Abraham has apparently struck up a flirty text message relationship with “Anger Management” star and porn star aficionado Charlie Sheen, according to TMZ. Apparently Farrah’s angling for a role on “Anger Management,” but even if that doesn’t work out she’d still like to see Charlie socially.

Abraham offered Sheen a range of meetup options, from a playdate with their kids to grabbing a coffee to a party with “pornstar ppl.”
