Charlie Sheen Book Deal Represented in Good Faith

Mar 28, 2011, 06:35 ET from Foundry Literary + Media

NEW YORK, March 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- It was reported in several media outlets Friday that the relationship between Charlie Sheen and Foundry Literary + Media Co-Founder, Peter McGuigan, who was representing Sheen's book deal, has been severed.  McGuigan, whose agency has represented more than ten New York Times Best Sellers in the last twelve months, says in response to the allegations that Foundry was not hired to shop Charlie Sheen's memoir: "Foundry Literary + Media was engaged by an individual who was known to have closed several recent deals on Sheen's behalf and who represented to Foundry that they were empowered by Sheen to authorize and engage Foundry as the literary agent for 'Apocalypse Me.' Foundry promptly set about fulfilling the terms of the engagement. Foundry is a reputable literary agency and exercises best business practices and would not shop a book without being expressly authorized to do so."
