TMZ – A new lawsuit obtained by TMZ alleges that “An A-list celebrity of substantial fame internationally” has knowingly exposed a sex partner to the h*rpes virus. But here’s the rub — the suit doesn’t name the celeb.
According to the suit, the plaintiff — who also is not named — met the celebrity in Las Vegas April 1. The suit claims the celeb — a male who is worth in excess of $100 million — “entered into a nefarious plot designed to lure Plaintiff into his luxurious hotel room to serve his prurient desires.”
The suit claims the celeb told the plaintiff he had “no venereal diseases.” At that point, they watched porn and engaged in “mutual oral copulation, mutual self-gratification, rubbing and massaging each other, play-wrestling, licking and (unprotected) intercourse.” And, it was all videotaped!
According to the lawsuit, filed by attorney Keith Davidson, it didn’t end well, because the plaintiff contracted herpes. The suit claims the celeb knew all along he had herpes and lied to the plaintiff in order to satisfy his desires.
The plaintiff — not identified as either a man or a woman — is suing for more than $20 million.

TMZ has learned … the person who is suing an internationally famous celebrity for intentionally transmitting herpes has multiple videos of the sex acts that allegedly transmitted the disease — and now there’s a bidding war for the tapes.
… several porn companies have already offered the plaintiff — through the lawyer, Keith Davidson, a fortune. Youporn.com has offered a cool $1 million, sight unseen, while another company is offering even more.
And get this … a prominent niche website is also willing to ante up beaucoup bucks — specifically to entice “bug chasers” to watch. For the uninformed, “bug chasing” is the act of knowingly engaging in sex with someone who has an STD.
Finally … as for why these alleged Las Vegas sex acts were videotaped, the lawsuit claims, “as the [celebrity] expressed, so they could relive the magic over — and over — again.”
There is long list of potential defendants in this case. RadarOnline has compiled a list of male celebrities who are known to have been in Las Vegas around April 1, the period of time that this incident took place.
So, just who was in Sin City on April Fools Day?
Hundreds of celebs! There was a film industry event, Cinema-Con. The Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational golf tourney had plenty A-listers. And the Academy of Country Music Awards lured a who’s who.
At Cinema-Con, headquartered at Caesars Palace: Ryan Reynolds, Russell Brand, Vin Diesel, Tyler Perry, Jack Black,Tim Allen, John Travolta and others.
With Michael Jordan at the golf tournament were actors Larry David, Chris Tucker and Jamie Foxx; model Gabriel Aubry; director Spike Lee; talk show host Maury Povich; NFL QB Drew Brees; hockey icons Wayne Gretsky and Mario Lemieux; and retired baseball stars Ken Griffey Jr., Greg Maddux, John Smoltz and Mike Piazza.
Notable names at the ACM Awards included American Idol judge Steven Tyler, TV hunk Chace Crawford and country artists Keith Urban, Alan Jackson, Brad Paisley and Toby Keith.
TMZ has reported that the celebrity just settled the suit for over $5M, so it looks like the name of the celebrity will likely never be made public.
