Porn Star Sues

'Buttman' Never Told Me

He Was HIV Positive

6/18/2013 2:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Katie-SummersevilangelA popular porn star who appeared in the movie "Buttman's Stretch Class #4" is suing the male lead (Buttman) ... claiming he failed to disclose that he was HIV positive before they shot sex scenes.

The woman behind the lawsuit is Katie Summers -- real name Katherine Howard -- who claims she was paid to appear in the film back in 2009 ... and the role involved sexual interaction with John Stagliano (aka Buttman).

In Katie's lawsuit, filed in L.A. County Superior Court and obtained by TMZ, the porn star claims Stagliano had known he was HIV positive since 1997 ... but failed to disclose that information before they shot their sex scenes for the movie.

FYI -- Stagliano has been open about his condition for years.

Still, Katie claims she didn't find out about Stagliano's condition until 2012 ... 3 years after they shot the movie.

In her suit, Summers does not say if she is HIV positive.

Summers is suing for negligence, intentional infliction of emotional distress and sexual battery. She's also suing John's production company -- Evil Angel Productions -- which produced the flick.

Summers is suing for unspecified damages -- and wants a judge to hit Evil Angel with an injunction forbidding the company from continuing to produce movies with Stagliano unless it discloses his condition to others.

It doesn't matter that he has been publicly open about his HIV positive status. She is under no obligation to follow his life and research those things. Porn is a business just like anything else. There should have been a contract she signed that stipulated she was aware of his HIV status and STD testing for both of them before filming. She has a case.

She's not a porn star. She's just another vagina with legs.

She obviously is positive. She wouldn't be suing if she wasn't.

God porn stars are f*ckin idiots. She should be just as upset about the fact that her life choice was to take it up the ass by random strangers. Porn stars lives never turn out well. They all claim to be "normal" and not emotionally damaged, BULLSH!!!!!!T

If the company, staff, camera men, whoever, KNEW the guy was HIV positive, did not tell her, and allowed her to have sex with the man without a condom (or even with one) then she has every right to be upset. Aren't porn stars supposed to disclose these things to one another initially or something? Or sign some contract stating that they're clean at least? Set aside your views on her lifestyle and think of this in a serious manner. Same situation could occur in an everyday relationship and it truly is sad.

Ok, when I go in my garage and work on the car there is an inherent risk I take that maybe the car will blow up and I will be hurt, my fault , So, when you go to work and get banged in the backdoor there is also an inherent risk of getting aids, your fault dimstick.. case closed.
