AN EX-FIANCÉE of Charlie Sheen has sued him, claiming he didn’t tell her he was HIV positive until after they had sex several times, and that he was physically and emotionally abusive during their relationship.

Scottine Ross, a porn star who performed under the name Brett Rossi, sued the actor this week for assault, battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

Her lawsuit states she and Sheen had sex five times before the actor told her he was HIV positive.

As a result of this exposure, [Ross] has suffered serious emotional distress from a reasonable fear that she will contract HIV.

The Two and a Half Men star publicly disclosed he was HIV positive on the Today show last month, but said he disclosed his status to all his sexual partners.

He also vowed during the appearance that he would not to pay to settle any claims from sexual partners claiming he exposed them to the virus that causes AIDS.

Ross’ lawsuit was filed one day after Sheen was supposed to pay her $1 million to settle all claims against him under a draft agreement that the actor never signed, according to the court filing.

Sheen’s lawyer Marty Singer wrote in a statement that Ross’ claims are already being addressed in private arbitration.

Charlie Sheen intends to vigorously defend the lawsuit filed. Numerous witnesses will dispute each and every claim made by Ms. Rossi (sic).
