Mystery Celeb Negotiating Herpes Settlement

5/13/2011 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources connected with the mystery celebrity herpes lawsuit tell TMZ ... the lawyer for the person who allegedly contracted herpes during a Las Vegas romp has been negotiating a financial settlement with the celeb.  And, by the way, the incident DID NOT OCCUR ON APRIL 1.

Our sources say before the lawsuit was filed, attorney Keith Davidson contacted the celebrity's rep and began negotiating a settlement, but the amount was "way too low" for the plaintiff.  We're told Davidson then decided to file the lawsuit "as a warning shot across the bow."

After the suit was filed, our sources say negotiations have continued and the celeb has upped the settlement ante, although the parties are still far apart.

TMZ broke the story ... Davidson filed the suit on behalf of an unnamed plaintiff, claiming the celeb -- also unnamed -- assured the plaintiff before having sex that he was herpes-free.  The suit claims the celeb gave the plaintiff herpes.

Now get this ... TMZ has learned the alleged sexual encounter occurred LONG BEFORE APRIL 1, 2011.  The suit claims the incident occurred "on or before April 1."  We're told the actual incident occurred many months before April 1, but attorney Davidson intentionally put April 1 so reporters would not begin speculating who was in Vegas and who might be the culprit.

Settle nit wit...before someone in that attorney's office get's the big idea of getting rich themselves by outing you.
Now that everyone knows where to look? You are one step away from exposure...and as you have NO PROBLEM "exposing" someone to disease, you should be grateful it was kept quiet this long.

Anyone who knowingly gives an incurable disease to their sex partner? SHOULD GO TO JAIL.

Since it's lawyer firday - talk to us about this type of lawsuit. How can someone file a lawsuit and have both the defendent and plantiff unnamed as well as use invalid dates - isn't this against some code of ethics?

I'm betting on Charlie Sheen...one last "15 minutes of fame" before he decides to call it quits.

Celebrity, don’t pay the woman, she set you up. The woman knew in advance that you have herpes that’s why she asked if you have it. For god’s sake, before you pay the woman get hold of her medical records to see if she had sought treatment for herpes in the past. Besides after you pay her, your name is going to leak out any way. Someone in your lawyer’s office or her lawyer’s office is going to sell the information to the highest bidder. Another thing, we all suspect most celebrities have herpes cause they f*ck around a lot. A few years ago a woman sued Robin Williams for exposing her to herpes virus, today most people hardly remember that incident. Be a man, do not pay no matter what, we are all behind you !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
