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.

Final line: Client demands a jury trial to settle HER claim. The gendeer of the plaintiff is deliberately unclear.

FYI Herpes CAN be and is often cured with a homeopathic doctor but this TMZ story is hilarious nonetheless! You can almost picture the guy doing backflips, anything he can think of to keep his name out of the mix. Sad for him.

You forgot to mention in the papers it states both parties are MALE.

No, it doesn't. It said "him" once which could have been a typo. The last page of the complaint said "her" in the last sentence and that page had the date typed in...so I doubt that it was a typo or a standard form.

He's asking $20 mil for pain & suffering.
Without releasing a name he's withholding evidence from the next victim. I think he should be listed as a co-defendent if there's another victim who sues

SOUNDS LIKE CHARLIE SHEEN. He's a major whore and when he f*cks prostitutes and porn stars he's been known to not use condoms. So this guy is an STD haven. He's also a TV star, internationally known, refers to himself as a A list celebs when he solicits prostitutes and he's was abusing drugs and alcohol during that time frame. My money's on him!

Tiff has a good point on this. Identity of plaintiff is unclear, as is the alleged date. The only thing that can be taken from this lawsuit is that an A-list celeb is being accused in civil court of knowingly transmitting an STD to another person. And it's not blackmail if there is a plausible cause of action. I'm sure plaintiff's attorney did his research to find the most favorable place to file a lawsuit in which the transmission of an STD is considered battery (an unconsented to touching) using statutes and prior settled case law.

On entertainment lawyer it did say charlie sheen had herpes. I have read that 1 in 4 ppl have it.

ALSO, there have been several lawsuits for herpes transmission and they can trace the strain to identify who gave it to you.

Remember the Aussie Shampoo guy Redmond or something who was sued by his girl friend for giving it to her, and then he got married to a young asian woman and they still appear nude in their ads wearing bathrobes even though they all have the herp...

I think the whore (because you know the "celeb" paid for the sex) took the risk by having sex with a stranger...and if it's Charlie, then she should have known that he's been with lots of women and probably had STDs. The plaintiff should get nothing because she's a slut and she shouldn't get rewarded for being a slut. But, unfortunately, Charlie is gonna pay to save face from a court hearing.

And really, millions of dollars for contracting herpes for being a slut?!?!?!?! So, if the woman gave the celeb herpes, then what would her punishment be?!?!?!? Would she have to pay-up $4.3 million dollars or would she go to prison?!?!?! I doubt it. Double standards!!! Just another whore trying to hit the lottery while being a whore.

Who has unprotected sex these days? Especially on the first night of meeting someone.
The "A-List" Celeb makes his $$$ from acting. The plantiff belived what he said. Just proves you're a gullible fool.
