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.

TorontoWoman,
I'm a straight gal too and wouldn't say no to some playing around like that, but it's much more common to integrate wrestling into foreplay for gay sex. There are oodles of online videos that can prove this...lol

no matter what the sum for the victim that is eventually negotionated, the celeb gave them a lifetime lasting sexual infection. i, for one, could and would never have any sense of 'loyalty' with ANYONE!! who did that to me! just because they are a celebrity, someone is supposed to simply be happy with some sum of money paid out to them? and the rest of their life, they are stigmatized with a highly contagious disease! that is like loyalty to your abuser, because they gave you some money. that is sick.

If it was Charlie Sheen then they would've definitely said "Charlie Sheen was sued for giving herpes to someone in Las Vegas" because of all the trouble He's been in you would've know. Their not saying the name because it someone that we dont expect.

So she asked if he had diseases and he said no, fair enough. Role reverse this for a minute, the guy asks the chick if she's on birth control and she says yes but then gets pregnant, why can't the guy sue????? NO difference between the two whatsoever cause they both last a LIFETIME!!!!!

Anyone who has unprotected sex, even if they ask a partner if they are "clean" or not, deserve what they get. How many men are upset because a woman SAID she was on birth control, but wasn't, and now she is getting child support. How many times have you heard "but she said she was on the pill" Even if she was, sometimes they don't work. Protection is a two way street. Until you really know the person, and are into a real relationship, protect, protect, protect. If you don't want a disease, protect.....if you don't want children, protect. Grow up people
==================================

AMEN!!!! Didn't get to this post before I wrote mine! Furthermore, if you're really concerned make them get a blood test first. A girl wouldn't sleep with me until I supplied the proof I was free of all diseases. Those were a LONG couple of days, JK.

It was gay sex. The technique of pleasing and teasing each other. What about Keanu Reeves? He is a gay.
