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 just read the whole complaint and I have to admit, this is looking more and more like it involves 2 men. There was a slip up, as someone else reported (on paragraph #48.) Why all the secrecy with the gender of the victim? That seems really weird, unless the celebrity is a closet gay.

People need to read the report. It's very interesting (esp the beginning part.) Apparently they were watching porn on their phones, and masterbating each other, among other things including intercourse--doesn't that sound more like gay sex? I mean, I've never busted out some porn on my phone right before getting it on--he prob didn't want to order it from a pay-for-view on TV because then it would show up as gay porn on his bill...

This is totally Fifty Cent. I can't wait till it all comes out. I'm betting on it being Fifty and Chelsea Handler.

It's Charlie Sheen!

The lesbian ho he met in NY resides in Vegas. She's probably friends with the tranni. The tranni's a ho and was already infected.
Once the lesbian ho found out her tranni ho friend was with Charlie, she helped put this bogus suit in action with her attorney.

The only reason why Charlie wouldnt want his name connected, is because its with a tranni.

If its not Charlie, I think that girl is still connected.

I believe it is Charlie Sheen and a man. This is why Sheen is scrambling for money right now and selling off his sports stuff.

Just because you ask someone do you have "herpes" and they say no...you just met the person. Its your fault for not having safe sex. Also this "person" could have had the herp derp and never went to the doctor. Then sleeps with this person and then claims they got it from whomever this celebrity is. People need to be safe...beware of dirty toilets LOL

OK, so if the allegations are true, then the victim is just in this for the money - otherwise WHY on earth wouldn't they make the celeb's name so as to PREVENT this heinous act of negligence/deceit from happening to another "innocent" bystander? You can bet if someone gave me herpes, I would have slapped them with a very public lawsuit on the same day I was diagonosed - then went after the $$$.
