Apparently, Charlie Sheen’s antics aren’t enough drama for one sitcom. Jon Cryer, Sheen’s Two and a Half Men co-star, was targeted for a hit…allegedly by his ex-wife. The threat became public when Cryer alerted security on Jan. 15; he believed Sarah Trigger, with whom he was in a bitter divorce/custody battle, was behind it. She blamed an ex-boyfriend, but court documents obtained by TMZ show that ex-boyfriend claiming she was actually the mastermind.

Trigger told Eddie Sanchez she wanted both Cryer and another estranged husband “dead, even asking Mr. Sanchez if he would kill the pair, or if he would not, inquiring whether she could speak with Mr. Sanchez's father about this issue,” the documents say. The FBI has been investigating Trigger, who was also arrested for child abuse last year. She denies any threats against Cryer.
