Charlie Sheen sued by former fiancee Scottine Ross for hiding HIV status

1CECF45EActor Charlie Sheen’s former fiancee Scottine Ross has filed suit against him claiming assault and battery, as well as emotional distress and negligence for not disclosing his HIV status when they first engaged in physical relations in 2013.

Sheen disclosed publicly on the “Today” show last month that he was HIV positive, and acknowledged that the revelation may lead to litigation. But he denied that he failed to disclose his status to sexual partners.

In her lawsuit filed on Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Ross’s attorneys claim that in late October or early November, Sheen’s attorneys attempted to resolve her claims for $1 million, to be paid on December 2.

The lawsuit claims that Ross also would have been assigned five percent of his 100 percent backend participation points on the series “Anger Management”, reports variety.com.

Ross claims that in the early stages of their relationship, she and Sheen had sex on at least five occasions before she discovered medication in his cabinet for the treatment of HIV.

“If Sheen had disclosed to plaintiff that he was HIV positive when they met for the very first time, plaintiff never would have engaged in sex with him, and the resulting relationship between the two would never have occurred,” her suit states.

After a “heart to heart” talk with him, she agreed to stay in a relationship with him.
