NFL Lineman Sued

You Gave Me Herpes

Exclusive Details

0728-cam-thomas-getty-01A Pittsburgh Steelers defensive lineman is being sued by a woman who claims he gave her herpes ... and tried to hide it from her by saying sores on his penis were caused by a zipper malfunction ... this according to a lawsuit obtained by TMZ Sports

The man at the center of the lawsuit is Cam Thomas -- a nose tackle who started 10 games for the Chargers last year.

According to the lawsuit, filed in San Diego, a woman named "Adrienne" says she started dating Thomas in 2010 and often had unprotected sex. 

Adrienne claims she noticed "puss-filled bumps on his buttocks and inner thigh" and asked about them -- but he explained they were the result of sweat buildup caused by his football gear. 

In the docs, Adrienne says she also noticed "bruises and sores" on his penis back in March 2010 -- but again, he had an explanation ... telling her "the sores on [the] penis came from getting it stuck in a zipper."

Adrienne claims she was tested for STDs in December 2010 but the results showed she was clean. It wasn't until February 2012 that she tested positive for genital herpes ... and she claims Thomas is the only person who could've passed along the disease. 

In her suit, Adrienne also claims Thomas was physically abusive during their relationship. 

She's suing for sexual battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, fraud through intentional concealment and negligence. She's asking for unspecified damages.

We reached out to Thomas, Thomas' agent and Thomas' lawyer for comment -- so far, no word back from anyone. For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!

Good God, I didn't know condoms were such a new product and you can't buy them at your area Wal-Greeens or area supermarket that's open 24/7.

I am truly sorry but take responsibility for your own sexual health--end of story.

Cam Thomas has been sued by a total of 4 different woman. With the Cam Thomas giving a woman herpes story, there is a second female named Robin who also sued him for giving her herpes and it failed to also mention the part about him being sued by Robin, Nicole and 1 other woman, sued Cam Thomas for child support as well. Why didnt you source this in your story Cam Thomas faces child-support claim by 3 different women...

Protection wouldn't matter. Condoms don't prevent herpes.

Oh well hon, there are barriers to prevent that stuff. My guess is the 18-year "I have your kid" payday didn't work out so you're attributing your myriads of STDs to him because he was stupid enough to dip his wick into your cesspool.
