Lawsuit: Rich, A-List Celeb Allegedly Spreads Herpes

5/11/2011 1:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A new lawsuit obtained by TMZ alleges "An A-list celebrity of substantial fame internationally" knowingly exposed a sex partner to the herpes virus.  But here's the rub -- the suit doesn't name the celeb.


According to the suit, the plaintiff -- who also is not named -- met the celebrity in Las Vegas April 1.  The suit claims the celeb -- a male who is worth in excess of $100 million  -- "entered into a nefarious plot designed to lure Plaintiff into his luxurious hotel room to serve his prurient desires."

The suit claims the celeb told the plaintiff he had "no venereal diseases."  At that point, they watched porn and engaged in "mutual oral copulation, mutual self-gratification, rubbing and massaging each other, play-wrestling, licking and (unprotected) intercourse."  And, it was all videotaped!

According to the lawsuit, filed by attorney Keith Davidson, it didn't end well, because the plaintiff contracted herpes.  The suit claims the celeb knew all along he had herpes and lied to the plaintiff in order to satisfy his desires.

  The plaintiff -- not identified as either a man or a woman -- is suing for more than $20 million.

Gee, "hooking up" for a one night stand, and you are surprised you contacted an STD? I wouldn't give you one damn dime! You made your bed, so to speak, SLEEP in it. "Oh, they said they didn't have a disease", yeah, and I have beach front property in the middle of Kansas! I'd kick the lawsuit out and make the PLAINTIFF pay all court costs. Just another person trying to make a quick buck.

Why people keep saying Michael Jordan, no clue - it's not him. Other than the penthouse -- he doesn't seem to fit the profile. The lawsuit states the defendant has appeared widely on TV and Film and the plaintiff discussed becoming an actor/actress. It seems to indicate this person was an actor simply because of that. Michael Jordan is an athlete, as was almost his entire guest list for his golf tournament.

Colin Farrell was in town, appears "A-List," had a sex tape in the past, and also was suggested he has herpes. (

Joshua Jackson showed up on the same list; may not on the surface be "A-List" but realistically - he is rich off Dawson's Creek, has been on Fringe and other shows, and a number of movies. He could qualify, but only saw him indirectly mentioned with CinemaCon.

Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman qualify as movie and tv "A-List" .. but no reason to expect them otherwise.

I´m sorry but this is horse ****!! The person who was allegedly infected with Herpes is and was an adult. What´s wrong with people? Oh..I made a bad and irresponsible decision to go and have unprotected sex with someone I don´t know, and now the person has to pay!! If you don´t want to get STD´s, then protect yourself. It´s your life and your d... / p...y!! I hope the case gets thrown out of court because the person made a bad choice!! Tough ****. We all make bad choices and have to suffer the consequences!! It´s life!!

Haha right John actually I was in one because a celeb friend of mine had an after party there. Don't try and deny what I said, you know it's true you tool.

Listen now I know you are delusional f ucker
Name the celeb imaginary friend and bar you nasty wench.
Tool? The only tool you should be concerned about is the vibrator I suggested you purchase. You poor lonely girl. You post non sense that could apply to straight girls like YOU
Oh no straight girl has ever ever behaved in a promiscuous manner that is reserved exclusively for the gay community. The worst thing about a self-serving delusional w hore like you is that you cannot even see the ignorance of your own comments which are public record. Read your post again. You basically said ALL GAY men are promicuous, juggle men and have sex in bathrooms. Then you try to make yourself sound important by mentioning a celeb "friend" --What the hell does that have to do with anything? You are a miserable wench plain and simple. You are no lady no matter what your moniker might suggest. A poorly educated w hore with nothing better to do with her time-that is you in a nutshell.
