Charlie Sheen Files Extortion Suit Against Capri Anderson
Charlie Sheen has just released the lawyers on his accuser Capri Anderson.
In a complaint filed by Sheen's attorney, Martin Singer (and obtained by Celebuzz) in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday, Sheen alleges that Anderson—the adult film actress who claims that the actor held her against her will in his room at the Plaza Hotel in New York last month—demanded at least $1,000,000 from Sheen in exchange for not going to the Aspen District Attorney with her allegations.
The complaint also claims that, contrary to Anderson's public claims, she told New York City police that she had not been harmed by Sheen and that the Two and a Half Men star had behaved "like a total gentleman." The suit characterizes Anderson (real name: Christina Walsh) as "an opportunistic pornographic film star and publicity hungry scam artist."
Sheen is asking for compensation "in an amount of no less than $165,000"—the claimed value of Sheen's Patek Philippe watch, which he alleges that Anderson stole during their encounter in his hotel room.
In an interview with ABC that will air on Monday's edition of Nightline, Anderson claims that Sheen flew into a violent rage in his hotel room, putting his hands around her neck and threatening to kill her.
