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.

It could very well be Robin Williams. He is rumored to have Herpes and he has a well known drug problem. He's been on several TV specials and movies. I wonder how long it will take before the defendant's name is "leaked".

Wasn't there a bunch of photos of Katie Holmes trying to cover up cold sores for a while? So that would open up Tom to be involved in some play time while she was busy with all the work she was off doing last year. Just a thought.

All the guy has do is say he didn't know that he had herpes. A lot of people with herpes don't know that they have it. And this slut won't get one cent in this lawsuit.

That's all well and good...but the other side will want a copies of his medical records pertaining only to Venereal Diseases...and he'll have to give them up!. If he were never treated for it, or it never came up in blood tests? Then he's fine...if not?



The medical records premise isn't foolproof, either. Chances are someone this wealthy was treated by a "private" physician in his office and NO do***entation was submitted to an insurance company for reimbursement to protect the patient's privacy. The doctor could have also arranged to acquire all of the necessary prescriptions without the patient having to go to the pharmacy. The blood tests could have been submitted to a lab under an "alias" or possibly done in the doctor's office. Without a "direct" identifying paper trail, this A-Lister could have easily received treatment without a trace of his STD diagnosis being entered into his official medical records.

The first name that came to mind was Seth Macfarlane. He's known for getting with random chicks at parties. I honestly wouldn't be shocked if it were him.

If you contract herpes and you want to be responsible about the whole thing, there are whole chats, message boards, dating services built soley around people with the virus dating and having sexual relations with each other. I can't get a woman to begin with, let alone shrink the dating pool down to girls with herpes. I remember walking back to a train station here in Philly after a concert at like midnight and some guy called me over and was like "yeah man, got some fine looking asian girls that will take care of you" and I was like "Im trying to get from point A to point B without contracting an STD, thanks though.

Drugs, a big entourage, resides in LA, stupid enough to have his liaison video him with her cell doing drugs and stripping, I mean how stupid is this guy knowing full well this could end up on YouTube?
Read the suit, he encouraged her to video therm doing drugs and sexual acts with her cell, while he was filming with his cell as well, WTF?!?
So they could " relive the magic over and over again'?

He did drugs on the video and they discussed fashion and politics.
Charlie Sheen and fashion? Nope.
Sheen stupid enough to encourage the plaintiff to video him doing drugs and undressing? Nope, he is in attack mode with Brook and Denise, he's not gonna put himself in a position of that level so that his kids will be forever taken away.

I just cant wrap my head around an " A-Lister" whom is stupid enough to ask someone to video them doing drugs and undressing.

Discussing fashion and politics, sounds like P. Diddy, but he sure as hell is not stupid enough to have some girl use her cell phone to video him doing drugs, that is, if he even does drugs.

This is a huge mystery, but I'll bet when it comes to light, it won't be a shocker on whom it actually turns out to be.
