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.

You are taking a risk every time. No one is going to be honest about their health. They are all about the money. Hope she is ok.

ok now just because he has been open for years about his condition doesn't mean she knew about it when they shot the film in 2009 also i think people are missing here is WHY THE **** IS HE SHOOTING FILMS STILL IF HE'S BEEN HIV POSITIVE SINCE 1997??? HE'S SHOULDN'T BE IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA HAVING SEX WITH PEOPLE WITH THE FEAR OF SPREADING THE DISEASE EVEN IF HE'S ON MEDS AND/OR USES PROTECTION. the porn company seems to not have disclosed this to her and told her that he was clean... it is always recommended for all sex performers to get and hiv/aids test and std test before every film and they have to show those results to the company before performing. so either the guy fake his do***ents to the company and the girl (which has happened before ) or the company knew and didn't bother to tell the girl about it and took the risk anyway to work with "buttman" either way the girl was being responsible and put her trust in the company she worked with and was lied to.

This is BS...everybody, and I mean EVERYBODY in the industry knows Stagliano is HIV-positive...he's very open about it, and he and his wife are very active in raising awareness/supporting AIDS causes. I think someone's just looking for attention/extra $$$.

EVERYONE, and I mean EVERYONE in the industry knows Stagliano is HIV-positive, he's not only open about it, but he and his wife do a lot of AIDS benefits/awareness promotions, etc. He also does NOT do sex scenes anymore, so I'm not sure what this "sexual contact" could possibly be.

Failed whore looking to make a cash grab.

I read an interesting breakdown of the situation by a mope named ChristianXXX published here: http://therealpornwikileaks.com/christianxxx-on-the-stagliano-lawsuit-and-katie-summers/ He alludes to the fact that Summers may have been put up to suing Stagliano by a failed and jailed porn producer who wasn't so lucky in fighting obscenity charges as Mr Stagliano was.

Why doesn't anyone ask her way hotter, much more intelligent roommate Alia Janine? I bet she knows a thing or two about this backstabbing idiot that a lot of other people don't, like the truth.
