Charlie Sheen sues Capri Anderson for extortion
Porn actress Capri Anderson may have logged a criminal complaint against Charlie Sheen, but Charlie struck back Tuesday by filing a lawsuit against the escort, claiming she tried to extort $1 million out of him over that pesky hotel incident last month. That $20,000 he offered her must not have been enough.
Papers turned into L.A. County Superior Court say Capri, who is described as "an opportunistic pornographic film star and publicity hungry scam-artist," threatened Charlie that she would "embarrass him and attempt to damage his career by going to the media with her false tale," TMZ reports. Sheen's attorney, Marty Singer, says she warned his client she would spill the beans to prosecutors in Aspen to get his probation for choking ex-wife Brooke Mueller revoked.
And while text messages the site dug up make it sound like the pair had settled on a $20,000 payment after Charlie ruined Capri's Prada purse, the suit says Anderson is the one who's in the red, since she swiped Sheen's $165,000 Patek Philippe watch. Not to stereotype here, but we know Charlie's a whoring, alcoholic cokehead, and hookers tend to let you do a lot of things for money, so who are we to really believe here? It's as bad as having to choose between Democrats and Republicans on the dishonesty scale.
