Last summer a woman who is identified as Jane Doe in court documents filed a lawsuit against actor Charlie Sheen for exposing her to HIV and coercing her to sign a non-disclosure agreement. 

The court recently decided to defer the case to arbitration, TMZ reported. Though this would constitute as a win for Sheen’s team, the judge also called out for "slut-shaming" the plaintiff warning the them that their behavior "wins no favor with this Court." The complaints came regarding comments made by Sheen’s legal team referring to the plaintiff as a “professional hooker party girl.”

The former ‘Two and a Half Men’ star also claimed the plaintiff was a “hooker” who gambled with STDs on a regular basis for she had sexual relations with "hundreds, if not thousands" of men. “As a professional sex worker, she has hundreds, if not thousands of sexual partners,” his legal team said in court documents. Exposure to sexually transmitted diseases is a risk that she knowingly and willingly accepts every time she has sex for money.”

According to the lawsuit, the plaintiff, who is described as a Russian émigré met Sheen back in 2015. Shortly after they met they commenced a sexual relationship, reported Variety. The plaintiff also claims that she made it a point to inquire about the actor’s experience with any STDs. Sheen repeatedly assured her that everything was “fine.” In the first stages of their relationship, they used latex condoms as means of protection but they did have unprotected oral sex she says.

She also alleges that they had unprotected sex on October 26, 2015. It was only after this encounter that Sheen admitted to her that he was, in fact, suffering from HIV. After which he gave her two pills to prevent transmission of the virus.

Of course, the plaintiff did not react well to this admission. Immediately after she visited the hospital to receive any appropriate care that she needed. She was prescribed antiretroviral medication for several weeks by the hospital.

The suit alleges that Sheen actually dared to blame the plaintiff for the exposure and claimed that it was noble that he even revealed the truth about his HIV status. She apparently held the opinion that his HIV status was not her “f*****g business,” despite the fact that they were involved sexually. He went on to discourage her from following the medical care recommended to her by the hospital, warning her not to fall into “the convenient rumors of the medical community.” He said, "You don't need to be on all that f****** s***." The plaintiff also alleges that she was forced into signing the NDA, claiming that “thuggish” armed men escorted her to a basement, coercing her into signing an NDA that demanded her to remain silent about their relationship.

She also admitted that English is not her first language and so could merely skim through the contract, not understanding the implications of the document. According to TMZ, Sheen seems to completely disagree with the allegations. He claims that he was always open about his HIV status and that she was frankly quite happy to commence a relationship with him. Not just happy, she seemed rather desperate, for Sheen claims that she pressured him and even stalked his home along with his father Martin Sheen’s home. He also claims that he treated her well by constantly surprising her with money and gifts. He thinks this entire lawsuit is a way for her to extort him for money.

Sheen found out that he was HIV positive in 2011 and made a public announcement about it in 2015 on ‘The Today Show.’ He also updated the public about his in 2016.

However, this is not the first time Sheen has been in this situation. In 2016, he was investigated for having sexual intercourse with several partners without informing them of his HIV status, reported Daily Mail. The actor even admitted to doing so with two partners but also mentioned that he made use of protection. Back in 2015, Sheen’s ex-fiancée, Brett Rossi, filed a similar lawsuit against him. She claimed that they had sexual intercourse five times before she found out he was HIV positive. Another one of Sheen’s exes, Bree Olson, said that he never revealed his HIV status to her.
