Esai Morales Comes Clean to His Fans

7/23/2007 6:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Esai MoralesFormer "NYPD Blue" star Esai Morales has written an open letter to his fans on his MySpace page in response to a lawsuit filed by his former live-in girlfriend, who claims he sexually assaulted her and gave her herpes:

To My Fans,

As you may have already heard, I have been put in a very frustrating situation by some hurtful accusations that were leveled against me in a recent lawsuit. But, because of the nature of the litigious society we live in, my very competent legal counsel is advising me not to comment at this time.

Yet, I need to assure you personally that the charges that have been leveled against me are absolutely false and without merit and I am prepared to vigorously defend myself and my reputation.

You know me. You've known me for nearly three decades. And you know in your hearts that these claims are baseless. This is not the way I live my life and I am incapable of committing these kinds of acts.

I am proud of my humanity, my activism and my respect for fellow human beings. I will continue to be optimistic and I will not let a personal attack deter me from the bigger picture.

I am grateful and humbled by your prayers, well wishes and expressions of trust and support at this time and look forward to the day when the truth will prevail.

Maybe it is more possible for these celebrities to get contracted with STD. I wonder if positive celebrities would like to go to STD niche site. I once saw a profile at, which has information very similar to Esai Morales. However, he choose to hide his photo. Only those members in his favorite list can see his photo.

Not sure how I could be listed in his favorite list.

Hilarious Esai-- you say "You know me." The public does not "know" him.....he's lucky we even know his name.

I know Esai, when we were both very young, his Carnarsie days "Arch Diner", when he landed the best & first movie role in Bad Boys with Sean Penn. What is written could never be true, he was an amazing, focused, gorgeous guy who just wanted to do well, for all the right reasons. I have told my daughters, who are now 22 & 23, he was the most polite, sweet, respectful, hot guy I ever knew. Realized that way later in life. I'm sorry I didn't read about this earlier. It's horrible to have to defend yourself publicly just because you dated a couple of cashncrazed nuts.
