A suit filed by an ex-girlfriend of Charlie Sheen accuses the actor of exposing her to HIV and urged her against taking antiretroviral drugs.

The lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, but neither Sheen nor the ex-woman are identified in the documents, Variety reported.

Court records indicate that Sheen, who is referred to as a “confidential male defendant” had discovered he had HIV in 2011.

Sheen was also sued by his ex-fiancée, Scottine Ross (left with Sheen in 2014, and right in 2017), who filed a similar lawsuit a month after it was revealed that he had the virus. Ross alleged Sheen exposed her to HIV and claimed she was physically and emotionally abused

The suit continues to state that the defendant also gave TV interviews in the national press about his HIV status in November 2015 and June 2016.

Sheen learned that he had contracted HIV in 2011 and he exposed it to the public on The Today Show in November 2015.

He also gave an interview to update the public on his health in June 2016.

The plaintiff is known only as Jane Doe in the documents, and is referred to as a “Russian émigré.”

Sheen and the plaintiff reportedly met in 2015, two months before he disclosed his HIV status.

The plaintiff alleges in the suit that the two immediately started a sexual relationship, but not before she asked him whether he had any STDs.

However, he reassured her that he was “fine.”

One month before Charlie Sheen announced his status to the public, the plaintiff claims the two had unprotected sex for the first time.

The suit says the defendant also gave national TV interviews about his HIV status on November 17, 2015, and June 21, 2016.

He later admitted to her that he had HIV and gave her two medications to prevent transmission.

The plaintiff then received medical treatment and was informed that she would need to take an antiretroviral medicine for several weeks.

The suit continues to indicate that Sheen blamed her for the exposure and told her he was “noble” for disclosing his status to her.

He then told the woman that the medicine she was prescribed were useless, and not to believe “the rumors of the medical community.”

The lawsuit adds that the defendant is not identified because the plaintiff signed a non-disclosure agreement.

His ex-fiancée, Scottine Ross, also filed a similar lawsuit a month after it was announced that he had the virus.

Ross claimed that Sheen exposed her to HIV and also alleged that she was physically and emotionally abused.

The lawsuit, filed in December 2015, was later transferred to arbitration.

In January, Charlie Sheen spoke about his life in the year since he publicly revealed he was HIV-positive on Good Morning America.

He also stated: “I feel like I’m carrying the torch for a lot of folks that are suffering from the same thing.”
