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.

It is so obvious this was two guys, and I bet the celeb is Travolta. His wife already knows he's gay. It's the cult he doesn't want to piss off!

Although I feel for this girls situation. You have to know what your getting yourself into when an A-List celebrity, who you know you probably won't see again, who you are letting film you and doing drugs with wants to have sex. If I were the judge, I'd give her a small settlement for an emotional distress and doctors bills and a box of condoms along with a smack over the head. This is a he said she said story and at the end of the day SHE should have said "Please put on a condom." She's just as much to blame as he is

Jim Carrey just did a gay movie with Ewan McGregor called, "I love you Phillip Morris". I wonder if Ewan caught anything if that is the JC that donald is talking about.

Ahhh yes.... being a whore pays off yet again. How 'bout instead of sleeping with any and every celeb that drops trou you use a little bit of self control and keep your legs shut.

It sounds like this woman was hoping for a baby for an 18 year payday, but ended up with an incurable disease instead. Oh well.
