Charlie Sheen hits back at former fiancée's lawsuit

2015-12-04 18:00

Los Angeles - Charlie Sheen's former fiancée is reportedly suing him for assault.

Scottine Ross - a porn star who performed under the name Brett Rossi - filed a lawsuit claiming the Anger Management star has caused her "emotional distress and negligence" by not telling her he was HIV positive when they began their intimate relationship in 2013.

Documents filed at Los Angeles Superior Court state: "If Sheen had disclosed to the Plaintiff that he was HIV positive when they met for the very first time, the Plaintiff never would have engaged in sex with him, and the resulting relationship between the two would never have occurred."

Ross' legal team are also claiming that Charlie's lawyers tried to settle the matter out of court by offering to pay $1m by 2 December.

However, she alleges that following his tell all interview last month, he claimed she had breached their agreement, which she refutes, and decided against signing the settlement documents.

Charlie Sheen lawyer Martin D. Singer insists however, that the actor will fight his former fiancée's claims.

Ross also claims Sheen forced her to have an abortion so they wouldn't "give birth to a retarded child".

But Martin told Us Weekly: "Charlie Sheen intends to vigorously defend the lawsuit filed by Scottine Ross.

"We are confident that Mr. Sheen will prevail in this action and will prevail on his claims for affirmative relief against her."
