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.

@yessir No she didn't successfully sue Magic Johnson, it turned out that she was the one that infected him, her disease was far more advanced. Anyway she died very shortly after filing the suit. Back on the subject WHY would anyone believe a drunken, horny man in Las Vegas?

According to paragraph 48, both parties are male. SO, we have two gay men living in Las Vegas, one considered "A-list" and the other a wannabe actor.

Shouldn't be that hard to figure out who they are :/

So now you can sue other people when your an idiot and have a one night stand with someone?

Seriously, she sleeps with someone she doesn't know, DOESN'T USE A CONDOM, and now wants to sue.

I guess no one has to take any responsiblity for their actions anymore.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Who are all the other "Does" she's naming, & how are they involved? If he specifically told her he had no venereal diseases, & she can prove it, he should be in trouble. I'd be pissed too & it doesn't matter the gender of the victim.

If she's lying I hope she gets prosecuted to the fullest extent. And gets syphilis.

And really TMZ, we did not need all the gory details.

TMZ, you should be ashamed of yourselves - don't you read?! Your first mistake is substituting "internationally" for "intentionally", and um duh, #48. It's 2 dudes. Your welcome.
