Brett Rossi (born Scottine Ross), Charlie Sheen’s ex-fiancee is reportedly filing a lawsuit against him claiming that during their relationship, the actor was physically abusive, hid his HIV-positive status, and forced her to get an abortion, Entertainment Tonight reports.
In the lawsuit filed by Attorney David M. Ring on behalf of Rossi, it was specifically stated there that the alleged facts were assault and battery, emotional distress, false imprisonment, and negligence against the former adult film star’s former fiance.
Rossi also claims that she “attempted to resolve the valid claims set forth herein with Sheen” in early 2015, alleging that the actor “agreed in principal to resolve [Ross’s] claims against him for the sum of $1 million to be paid on December 2, 2015, and to assign to her five percent of his 100 percent back end participation in the TV series Anger Management,” ET wrote.
Meanwhile, when the Two and Half Men actor showed up on the Today Show, he dismisses a statement saying that there where people in his life whose trying to shake him down. "What people forget is that's money they're taking from my children," Sheen said at the time. "They think it’s just me, but I've got five kids and a granddaughter. … I release myself from this prison today."
"The lawsuit filed by Ms. Ross speaks for itself,” Ring said in a statement on Thursday. “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."
Ross also claims on her lawsuit that the actor forced her to have an abortion in March 2014, stating that “Sheen indicated that he did not want his child to have his blood type (i.e., HIV-positive).” The suit claims that, when Ross told Sheen she didn’t want to have an abortion,“Sheen erupted into a fit of rage, stating he would ‘kick her to the curb’ if she did not have an abortion.” Ross also claims Sheen told her he did not want her “to give birth to a retarded child.”
Apparently, Sheen’s lawyer, Martin D. Singer released a statement on Thursday to People saying, “Charlie Sheen intends to vigorously defend the lawsuit filed by Scottine Ross," Singer said. "We are confident that Mr. Sheen will prevail in this action and will prevail on his claims for affirmative relief against her."
