'Hellraiser' Author

Victorious in Cousin Sex

HIV Lawsuit

"Hellraiser" and "Candyman" author Clive Barker just scored a big victory in court over his ex-BF -- who accused Barker of having sex with his own HIV-positive cousin before passing the virus on to him -- because his ex's lawsuit has been tossed out of court ... forever.

TMZ broke the story ... Barker's ex-boyfriend Emilian David Armstrong sued the writer in June, claiming Barker gave him HIV in 1996 ... then kicked him out on the street, leaving him destitute.

The lawsuit is crazy -- with allegations of cousin sex, AIDS, S&M, and drug-fueled parties -- but the judge ruled the case was baseless and should not go forward.

The case had previously been thrown out, but the judge gave Armstrong the chance to rework his lawsuit with new evidence.  Armstrong never followed through ... so the dismissal is now permanent.

It's too bad we won't be able to hear all the dirty laundry in court. I'm sure it was all true.

Two gay guys walk into a bar. One gay guy pulls out a bar chair and proceeds to sit down. The other gay gay, being the gentleman that he is, asks his friend, "Do you mind if I push your stool in?!"

ROFLMAO!

All lawsuits claiming a passing of HIV are bogus and can be defeated, given that there is NO HIV virus. AIDS is very real, but has nothing to do with a fictitious virus. AIDS is not communicable by blood or by sex. http://barryb911.blogspot.ca/2012/07/hiv-horror-scam-and-murder.html

Project Innocence about the HIV hoax. The lie won't hold for much longer. http://www.nancybanksmd.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=406:omsjs-hiv-innocence-project-achieves-49th-victory-in-three-years&catid=49:legal&Itemid=65

Well, I see from a few comments that the Ex actually did get a bit of a victory. Leave it to the few who believe without IMMEDIATE proof it all happened. I continuously ask the same question when accusations like this fly, "If it was good enough for you when you were together you can't complain when you get kicked to the curb". Unless he's got the goods, don't believe a word of it.

Wow, How old was Clive when he first hit the scene? Since he's been around forever I thought he was an old man. I'm actually in shock.

Clive is THE BEST current writer of horror/fantasy fiction. Better by far than the horribly verbose Steven King. The simple short story Cabal, knocks the socks off silver bullet. He knows how to write, King just keeps adding extraneous verbage. "IT" is without question the WORST novel ever written.

Okay, okay, I get it, some guys like other guys. I like Corvettes...but you don't see me running over and rubbing my dick all over one when I see one parked at the curb.
