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.

I know it was pretty sh*tty to not tell the person he had Herpes and that herpes is probably not fun to live with and it seems really dirty. But why is everyone so uptight? I have never been called a whore but I'd fu(k Brad Pitt for 20 million dollars and herpes...or any pretty much any celeb I thought was hot.
Don't tell me that any normal red blooded straight female or gay male wouldn't do the same.
And yeah, if Brad Pitt or Leo wanted to fu(k me the first night I met him without protection...I probably would. Especially if I were drunk. :)

Ugh. Wish people would stop guessing Tiger Woods. He is not an ACTOR.

Yes, and it can't be Tom Cruise. He never did television, always movies.

For all those who haven’t figured it out- this is a chick with a ****!
Tranni's want to be referred to as women (hence any references in court docs)

I'm going to guess Michael Phelps. I was orginally going to joke it was Shaun White, and that made me remember seeing pictures of Phelps with a bunch hootie's in Vegas several weeks back.

Whoever the person is, I'm sure this wont hurt his career.
Countless actors have been with tranni's. This ho would have the burden of proof.


Dont be afraid, go to court- Stop these ho's from blackmail.
Tigerwoods paid off Rachel, and a lot of good that did to his reputation.

What's to say she didn't have herpes first and then gave it to the A-lister?? They wouldn't be aware of it then but could test positive for it now. After all wouldn't most people ask the other person if they had any STD's not just specifically herpes? That makes me suspicious!

It's Charlie Sheen and the mtv vj guy who did a solo jack flick when he was 20 something. They were both in Detroit as well together on April 1st which is the fake date to throw everyone off the trail.... Simon rex that's him.

I bet it IS Charlie Sheen. And Bree Olson. She probably got tested regularly as a porn star. So she WOULD be able to pinpoint who gave it to her. And he was so drugged out earlier this year, and was in Vegas... hmmm. Yep, the warlock loses again. Duh.
