Charlie Sheen Files Lawsuit Against Capri Anderson For Extortion

Charlie Sheen fired back at Capri Anderson in lawsuit that alleges she tried to extort $1 million from him after their "consensual encounter" in a New York hotel room.

Anderson claimed in an interview Monday that the actor used racial slurs and put his hands around her throat during the raucous evening in New York last month. Sheen is calling the aspiring porn star's version of events is fabrication and that she sought $1 million from him to remain quiet.

"This case involves a shakedown and extortion of the internationally known actor and celebrity Charlie Sheen by an opportunist pornographic film star and publicity-hungry scam artist," says the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.

According to the complaint, Anderson demanded $1 million, or else she would meet with the district attorney in Aspen and "seek to embarrass him and attempt to damage his career".

Sheen pleaded guilty in August to assaulting his wife on Christmas Day in Aspen, Colo. He was sentenced to 30 days in a rehabilitation center, 30 days of probation and 36 hours of anger management.

The lawsuit also claims Anderson dropped the demand to $500,000 on the eve of taping the Monday interview to remain quiet and accuses her of stealing his $165,000 Patek Philippe watch. The same one Sheen recently said he didn't care about.

"She fabricated a sensational tale about being assaulted, battered and held against will" and then threatened to go to the media with "her false tale" if the 'Two and a Half Men' star didn't pay up, it says.

"Through this action, Sheen intends to expose (Anderson) for the fraud that she is, and to seek redress for her unlawful attempt to extort an exorbitant sum of money from him based on sheer lies and deceit."

Meanwhile, Keith M Davidson, Anderson's attorney says the lawsuit is a "blatant attempt by them to muddy the waters and confuse the situation."
