Capri Anderson's lawyer on 'GMA': Charlie Sheen 'threatened to kill her'
Capri Anderson, the adult film actress who was with Charlie Sheen last month during a disturbance at New York’s Plaza Hotel, is planning to file a criminal and civil complaint against Sheen for assault and false imprisonment. She told George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America that the Two and a Half Men star gripped her roughly around the neck while in his hotel room. A clip of the interview can be seen after the jump, as well as links to her upcoming Nightline interview with Ashleigh Banfield.
Anderson, who was to be paid $3,500 to appear at Sheen’s dinner party that night, also accused Sheen of using racial slurs and snorting a “white powdery substance.” She tells Nightline that Sheen had texted her an apology, offering her $20,000 for her silence on the events of that evening.
In an email, a Sheen rep responded: “Ms. Capri never made any allegation to the police of any wrongful conduct on the part of Mr. Sheen the night of the incident and she had every opportunity to do so. She also posted on her website that she was ‘fine’ and if you wanted to see more of her, for a price, one could enter the website. She has been to a number of law firms who have refused her case because they doubt her credibility. A number of news organizations have refused her story for the same reasons. If she pursues legal action, we will defend this vigorously. These allegations against Mr. Sheen are completely false, and are an blatant attempt to cash in on his celebrity.”
Am I the only person who thinks you should file the criminal complaint before being interviewed about them on television?
