Charlie Sheen Fights Back Against Allegations
In a bombshell lawsuit Charlie Sheen is accusing Christina Walsh, aka Capri Anderson, of trying to extort one million dollars from him in exchange for her silence.
The suit claims she "fabricated a sensational tale about being assaulted, battered and held against her will."
The suit also calls her "an opportunistic pornographic film star and publicity hungry scam artist."
"I can assure you that Miss Capri Anderson will never get a dime from Charlie Sheen," said Sheen's lawyer, Yale Galanter.
"Did he threaten her?" INSIDE EDITION's Diane McInerney asked him.
"He never threatened her," said Galanter.
"Did Charlie Sheen go after her and throw things at her?" asked McInerney.
"Absolutely not. She is an absolute liar, she's fabricating this story," said Galanter.
Walsh is threatening to sue Sheen, but he filed first. His lawsuit identifies the escort by her real name, Christina Walsh. "Capri Anderson is her stage name.
It was filed as a tearful Anderson went public with her story, telling ABC's Nightline she feared for her life on that infamous night at the Plaza hotel as a drunken Sheen allegedly went wild. She said, "At that point I just went as fast as I could into the bathroom and I locked the door. It was really scary because as I'm closing the door I'm seeing him come towards me and he starts slamming on the door with his whole body."
But Sheen's lawsuit claims she fled to the bathroom with his $165,000 Patek Philippe watch, saying, "Walsh is the one who locked herself in the bathroom and refused to come out, apparently because she was afraid Sheen might find the watch on her."
A just-found video probably won't help Walsh's case. It's her appearance in a newly-released Girls Gone Wild video.
"Whether she's a porn star or an escort or a hooker, whatever your definition is, we know that she sleeps with men and women for money while she's getting paid and being filmed," said Galanter.
Walsh has denied being a prostitute.
The controversy isn't hurting Sheen's show. More than 14 million viewers tuned in to his smash hit comedy Two and a Half Men on Monday night.
