I figured Charlie Sheen would be facing a number of lawsuits after announcing he was HIV positive, but I didn’t expect this: his ex-fiancee, Brett Rossi, is alleging that he forced her to have an abortion. She is suing him for assault and battery, emotional distress, false imprisonment and negligence. OMG.
Brett said that she first met Charlie in November 2013 when she alleges she had sex with him for $10,000. She claimed he forced her to sign an “illegal and unenforceable” non-disclosure agreement. Brett said they fell in love, but that Charlie would “became violent and abusive and uncontrollable” while under the influence of drugs and alcohol. She alleged that he was physically abusive, threatened to kill her, and even brandished a firearm at her. Goodness!
Brett also claimed that Charlie did not tell her about his HIV status and that they had sex at least five times before she found his HIV medications and confronted him. She said in her lawsuit:
If Sheen had disclosed to Plaintiff that he was HIV positive when they met for the very first time, Plaintiff would never have engaged in sex with him, and the resulting relationship between the two would never have occurred.”
However, they apparently did engage in unprotected sex: Brett became pregnant. And this is where things really get crazy: she alleges that Charlie forced her to have an abortion in March 2014 because he feared his child would be born HIV positive. She said that when she stated she did not want an abortion,
[Charlie] erupted into a fit of rage, stating he would ‘kick her to the curb’ if she did not have an abortion and that he did not want her to ‘give birth to a retarded child.’ “
She also alleges that Charlie became “less diligent” about taking his HIV medications between July and September 2014 due to “illegal drug use.” Brett said she attempted suicide after Charlie ended their engagement via text message. She alleged in her lawsuit:
She now realizes that Sheen likely had no intention of ever marrying her or staying with her. Instead, part of the entire ruse was to get her to fall in love with him, convince her that they would be together forever, and that, in turn, allowed Plaintiff to be manipulated into agreeing to engage in unprotected sexual intercourse with Sheen, despite knowing he was HIV-positive.”
Brett claims that she and Charlie reached an agreement that he would pay her $1 million and give her five percent of his back end participation points from ‘Anger Management,’ but she said he reneged after he publicly announced his HIV positive status on the ‘Today’ show. Her attorney said:
The lawsuit filed by Ms. Ross speaks for itself. Mr. Sheen made it clear on The Today Show that he had no intention of honoring the agreement reached, and sure enough, he didn’t. Ms. Ross looks forward to her day in court, and to taking Mr. Sheen’s deposition.”
Charlie’s attorney, Marty Singer, released this statement:
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.”
Can this whole situation get any more bizarre?
