Jon Cryer Fears Ex-Wife Hired Hitman
Save Duckie!! Two and a Half Men actor Jon Cryer believes his ex-wife hired a hitman to kill him.
Last Friday, production on the CBS series had to be sent down after an unidentified party made a death threat against Cryer. The cast was later able to resume taping — but did so without the usual presence of a studio audience. The 44-year-old star and his former spouse Sarah Trigger have been embroiled in a bitter custody fight over their son, Charlie Austin. The legal wrangling has turned particularly ugly in recent months — Jon’s convinced there’s now a mark on his head.
Cryer, who stars in the hit sitcom with accused batterer Charlie Sheen, alerted authorities of his suspicions last Friday, and sources tell TMZ.com that the FBI has been investigating the allegation for the past week.
The FBI declined to comment but sources say the agency has no suspects.
