A lawyer representing Jon Cryer's ex-wife Sarah Trigger has lashed out at reports her client was behind alleged death threats made against the actor last week (15Jan09).
Security on the set of Cryer's U.S. sitcom Two & A Half Men was reportedly boosted after the actor received a menacing phone call - and members of a studio audience were sent home.
Agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) were then brought in to get to the bottom of the alleged threats.
Sources close to the show told TMZ.com that the star believed his ex could have hired a hitman to kill him, but Trigger's lawyer Vicki Greene is fuming at the suggestions.
She tells Eonline.com, "This is the father of her child and I think it's outrageous that these rumours are being spread. I can tell you that Sarah and I have not been contacted by the FBI. I don't think she's involved at all."
Meanwhile, Greene has taken aim at Pretty in Pink star Cryer in a separate interview with RadarOnline.com, suggesting the actor is envious of the attention his co-star Charlie Sheen has been getting since his arrest following a bust-up with his wife on Christmas Day (25Dec09).
She adds, "Maybe he's tired of Charlie Sheen getting all of the attention. None of this is going on. I can't even believe this whole story. It's a fabrication of his imagination."
Cryer and Trigger went through an acrimonious divorce in 2004 after five years of marriage. They have a nine-year-old son called Charlie.
