Charlie Sheen Sues Pornographic Actress for Defamation, Extortion

Television star Charlie Sheen has filed a lawsuit against a pornographic actress for defamation and extortion following an alleged confrontation in October in a New York hotel room, reports CNN.

Capri Anderson, the actress whose real name is Christina Walsh, claims that Sheen put his hands around her neck in a hotel room after snorting a "white, powdery substance." She also claimed that he offered her money in exchange for her silence regarding the altercation.

Lawyers for Sheen told the source that Anderson was fabricating her account of the event and had attempted to extort money from the actor, claiming that her lawyers told Sheen's team that she would discuss the incident with the authorities and on morning talk shows unless Sheen gave her an undisclosed seven-figure amount.

"There was definitely never an offer for money to silence her or anything else. As a matter of fact, when her lawyers approached us, we told them to go pound salt because we knew that Mr. Sheen had done absolutely nothing wrong," one of Sheen's lawyers told the source. "We're going to defend these charges vigorously and she will never get a check from Charlie Sheen."
