Charlie Sheen Sues Porn Star

Charlie Sheen is suing the porn star who has accused him of assault, alleging that Capri Anderson is trying to extort him. Sheen says Anderson is seeking $1 million through "an attempted shakedown and extortion … by an opportunistic pornographic film star and publicity hungry scam-artist." Anderson, whom Sheen had hired as an escort, alleges he tried to strangle her before destroying their hotel room. Sheen says Anderson is exaggerating her claims, and that she “fabricated a sensational tale about being assaulted, battered and held against her will, and used that fictional story as a basis for an extortion plot against Sheen."
