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.

I think people are underestimating endorsements, investments, appearance fees, interest, etc - movie salaries aren't the only income.

Also, this person is by the *Plaintiff's lawyer's definition* an "A-List" celeb valued at "an excess of $100 million". Of course they're going to inflate both.

To think this can't be Jamie Foxx or Colin Farrell is naive. Same goes for Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman, Tim Allen and even David Hasselhoff.

I find it far more likely the claim's estimates are off and it's one of them, than it is Travolta or Cameron - both of who beyond any doubt meet $100+ A-Listers by any definition.

If anything it's the mentions of international fame, power, and a large liable entourage that rules out most.. not suspected the money and A-List status.

A-Lister NOT    

It is a man and a woman. If you read the very last line in the lawsuit, it says, "Plaintiff demands a jury trial for HER claims against the defendent."

Either way, it is her own fault for not taking precautions herself. While the celeb probably DID know he had the disease, it is quite possible that he didn't.

The sad thing is that they will settle out of court and she will makes lots of money.

From what I've read, it's hard to collect damages even if you contract a STD from your spouse! Depending upon how much this celebrity values his privacy and reputation will determine just how quickly this suit is settled. Having unprotected sex with "ANYONE" is risky to begin with. I would prefer my "good health" over "money" any day!!!

TMZ's reporting skills are really lacking...if you actually read this you can determine the plantiff is male. There are masculine pronouns used in reference to the plantiff.

I've just read all the comments on this board, and I cannot believe that someone said "anyone who says they wouldn't get herpes for 20 million is full of sh**!" apparently has no morals! No amount of money would make me want a disease like herpes that can cause cancer! No thank you!!! What good would the money be if you die from cancer? That's insane thinking.

No idea who this might be, but I think it's pretty appalling that the celeb knew and didn't inform the other person. Revolting! I hope whoever it is gets taken to the cleaners.
