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.

Out of curiosity I looked him up and this article does not mention that they did not even have intercourse; he handled some sex toys and touched her ass and that was it...no way is she getting HIV that way. The whore is just trying to make a little money and get her name in the paper.

Any porn star with half a brain knows that what they did has about as much chance of getting HIV as getting it from a toilet seat or sipping out of a cup someone once used.

Besides porn starts are tested on a regular basis so it's highly unlikely she has it.

She's a porn star. She gets paid for being promiscuous. We learned in middle school sex ed that you can get pregnant or STDs from spreading your legs for every Tom Dick and Harry who wanted to do the bump and grind. If you don't want to risk life threatening diseases, don't get paid to be a wh*re. Just saying

Porn star or everyday person...... if you have ANYTHING you can pass on to someone shouldn't you have the decency to let them know? Then they can make that decision themselves. Same thing as the celebritys here on TMZ, stories all the time about how some ball player gave some girl herpes / STDs.

Another site reported that they didn't actually have any sexual contact, he handed her sex toys and touched her butt and that's it. So she doesn't have much of a case.

Darn, there goes any desire to actually do her. So I guess I'll just have to imagine doing it to her. On the other hand, it's got to be hell wondering if the guy who took you up the poop-chute gave you aids though.

What is wrong with some of you people? A guy who is HIV positive is still doing porn? Who cares if he has been open with it? The fact is he's putting other people's lives at risk. Sure the woman was in porn, that doesn't excuse the fact that someone who is infected with a noncurable deadly disease is out there potentially spreading it. You think the world needs MORE HIV infected people?

I hope Buttman sues her for fvcking her ugly ass . Now his dick will never be the same. His poor dick now has PTSD. Post Traumatic Scenery Dis-order.

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


What idiot at TMZ thinks that clears him of exposing any future partners to HIV? Just because he has been open about it for years doesn't mean every porn actress has heard about it. He had the responsibility to tell her he was HIV+. He took advantage of her ignorance of that fact so he could get laid. No fan of porn, but I hope he loses big.
