Celeb Settles 'Herpes Lawsuit' for Millions

6/20/2011 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The A-list celebrity "of substantial fame internationally" who allegedly gave a Las Vegas visitor herpes has settled the case for just over $5 million ... sources connected with the case tell TMZ.


We broke the story ... the plaintiff in the case claims the celeb -- a male who is referred to as John Doe in the lawsuit -- allegedly lured him/her to a hotel room and gave assurance he was STD free. 

The plaintiff claims what followed was "mutual oral copulation, mutual self-gratification, rubbing and massaging each other, play-wrestling, licking and [unprotected] intercourse."

The plaintiff claims the entire affair was videotaped.

According to the suit, the celeb knew all along he had herpes, and transmitted it to the plaintiff.

We're told Keith Davidson, the lawyer for the plaintiff, has been negotiating with the defendant even before the suit was filed last month. The case settled last week.

So we'll never know the identity of the A-list herpes celeb. 

Hollywood beware.

This is what is wrong with society. This person claims everything was mutual and still the guy had to fork over 5 million dollars. Why is she not held responsible for her own actions... This bitch has not been living under a rock, she knows that their are std's out there and if she knowingly has un-pretected sex in vegas no less I say **** her she know what she was doing and to pay her is almost telling everyone else to do the same. I think that there should be a paid out only amongst married people. if you have a committed relationship and you give your partner a disease for sleeping around then you should fork over the 5mil but for a 1 night stand between 2 strangers in vegas common she almost deserves the herpes.

I think I know who the John Doe is. I will give a hint. It is a male actor with the initials JC. I will leave it at that for now.

Ok, Ok....I have it from reliable sources that the A-lister is none other than the famed closet homosexual.....John Travolta who happened to be in Vegas on those dates.

Where did it say the celeb was worth 100 million? I can't find that article.

A site says there was an event in Vegas called Cineacon right before April 1st that was attended by many celebs. They also make a good point that they are probably saying it was way before April 1st to throw people off.

Celebrities make a lot of money but not many are up around 100 million. Add that they are A list and someone should be able to figure it out.

I think it's John Travolta. He's been secretly seeing guys and propositioning them in saunas for ages. The wife is a beard.

Patco 7 minutes ago Ok, Ok....I have it from reliable sources that the A-lister is none other than the famed closet homosexual.....John Travolta who happened to be in Vegas on those dates.

I have heard his name said but would he video tape it? Would he risk Kelly or the cult seeing it?

With all of the visual "exposure" in the encounter and enough light for video taping, she didn't notice a fever blister like sore on his internationally famous body part? She won this lotto for being stupid and irresponsible.
