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.

This sounds like it was a homosexual encounter by the way it reads, if it isn't then my money is on Charlie Sheen!

TMZ should run a contest. Who has herpes and is getting sued? Free trip to Vegas...may get herpes....

Oh wait, probably not such a good idea.

No sympathy here. She should have said no, but instead its obvious she just wanted to screw around with a celebrity. You took the chance and lost. Idiot.

Duh    

In the section for the Demand for a Jury Trial it states, "Plaintiff here by demands a trial jury for HER claims against the defendants". READ PEOPLE!

If it really is two men as Sean suggests then the plaintiff would have an even harder time winning the lawsuit. Chances of winning are pretty slim to begin with even if it is a woman, but people tend to be much more sympathetic of a woman "being taken advantage of" than a man.

For 20 million you can give me Herpes, that's enough money to buy Valtrex. Who cares 60 million people in the United States have herpes, hell half of the people posting on this story are probaly picking a blister right now lol.

It is a woman; read the last line on page 12-it says "her." I suspect it's Charlie. Wasn't he hanging around Vegas then? He's in tv and film.

The lawsuit claims the defendant is a "celebrity" who "has appeared widely on television and film". It also claims he has a net worth of at least $100M.

Maybe it was someone who went to CinemaCon (which used to be called ShoWest), which ended in Vegas on 3/31?

Lots of celebs there, but I don't think the likes of Vin Diesel or Ryan Reynolds fit the description. Tyler Perry was given an award at the closing night dinner, but does he live in LA?

Where is my get out of jail card?    

It's a woman. Only a woman can get cervical cancer. Read line 21, the last sentence. You get HPV from genital herpes, which can bring about cervical cancer.

It's two males. If you read paragraph 48 states Plaintiff as "HE", paragraph 50 states Defendant as "HE and Honest MAN". Unless there was a gender mix up, or type, it's definitely 2 men. In any event, this may be a lawsuit legally blackmail for money. A list celeb gets sued frivolously, lawsuit may get dropped. Plaintiff says screw it, lets go to court and go public... A-list thinks... lets settle!! Boom... payday.

Nice catch, it wasn't up on the line that Max pointed out but it for sure is on the lines you highlighted. This is a dirty lawsuit for sure. I cannot say I am not very curious as to whom is has been brought up against.
