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'd say the Plaintiff (and I'm calling them a she because that's probably who it is by the sounds of the legal do***ents) is just as guilty as the defendant, and my guess she may not be completely honest either. she agreed to go to their hotel room and was not forced to have sex nor said no at any time. and this may sound mean, but it's buyers remorse. and it's not like it's deadly, just an annoying disease. but yeah, buyer's remorse for sure. and of course they would jump at the opportunity to extorte millions from their famous one night stand. I'm sorry but I don't feel sorry for the plaintiff one bit.

Cant be Jamie Fox, for one he is a homosexual and another thing is not worth over $100 million dollars and famous internationally. And I pray to god it isnt Johnny Depp. I will die. They are saying it is two men on other sites, which I think so looking at the sexual aspect of the mutual masturbation, oral, and play wrestling.

I think it is Johnny Depp. He was in Las Vegas for Cinema Con on or around end of March/April 1. He is in a long term relationship with Vanessa Pradis. Internationally known. But I still think it is two guys and this would totally kill me if it was him.....

Johnny Depp is an American actor whose films have grossed $2.3 billion in America and $4.8 billion worldwide. His personal net worth is $200 million, his annual salary is over $25 million.

page 12 ... the do***ent states
"plaintiff hereby demands a jury trial for HER claims against defendants."
.... so, why are we confused on the sex of the plaintiff?
it's a woman.
and the defendant is clearly charlie sheen.
although, his tour DID start april detroit...

"relieving the magic" +video taping + talking about sex and drug use + does 11-20
= Charlie Sheen (international actor and tv film star)

for all of you downplaying the seriousness of the defendant not reporting that he had herpes, how stupid can you be. People infected with herpes, a virus, do not always have lesions, so you would not be able to tell just by looking. Just because there are no lesions present, does not mean that they are not contagious. The defendant should have disclosed his condition.

We can all argue that the plaintiff put himself/herself in this situation. But putting yourself in this person's shoes... If in a similiar situation - with an A list celebrity, and you are a wannabe actor/actress, what would you do?

You people need to brush up on your reading skills. Paragraph 12 in the court fillings refer to defendant as "he" and "his" which tells us the defendant is a male. The closing line on the last page of the filings says "Plaintiff hearby demads a jury trial for HER claim agains defendants" meaning the plaintiff is female. That means the case involves a male(defendant) and a female(plaintiff).

Could this be what began Charlie's downfall? Herpes will kill his ex-girl friend's porn career. $20 million may be a rightful amount to sue for loss of career.

I thought Blackmail was illegal?? To me all this Lawsuit is is a form of blackmail, all she cares about is the money. Can the Star being accused use the fact she didn't name him at first against her to help support the case of blackmail?? If she was really worried about STD's she should of used protection... famous or not you should never take someones word for it.
