Capri Anderson Suing Charlie Sheen Over Hotel Rampage
Capri Anderson was paid $3,500 to escort Charlie Sheen to dinner, but the night ended with her locked in a hotel bathroom in fear for her life, the 23-year-old adult film “actress” (Hint, Nudge, Wink…) told Good Morning America’s George Stephanopoulous in her first interview since she witnessed Sheen’s meltdown at The Plaza Hotel last month.
Capri, whose real name is Christina Walsh, compares the night to being trapped in a “horror film.”
“He was, from the beginning of the night, very loud and he had no hesitations when it came to using derogatory language or cuss words,” she explained.
The later it got, the odder Sheen became.
“Toward the end of the evening, a friend of Charlie’s asked if I could please make sure he gets up to his room and stay there. He was fairly intoxicated….There was a little bit of romance, if you will.”
Then things took a turn.
“He started yelling racial slurs. But it wasn’t until he put his hands around my neck that I really thought to myself, you have gotten yourself in a bad, bad situation….” Anderson said through tears. “When I became really uncomfortable was when he put his hands around my neck. So that’s really when things started to go wrong and I was no longer in a good situation. I started to resist and he let off of me. As quickly as I could I began to walk toward my purse, dress and celleular phone. He strated throwing things. He threw a lamp. That was the first thing he picked up. He threw it acress the room at me.”
Anderson also claims Sheen offered her “hush money” to keep quiet about the incident, which she says she refused. Instead she plans to file a civil lawsuit in Los Angeles later this afternoon seeking damages from Sheen for battery, assault, false imprisonment, and emotional distress.
“I’m not going to stand down and be completely walked over, mistreated. My whole life has been changed,” she said. “I think that this story and this treatment sends a message in itself and this is clearly something that’s not right. It’s not right to hurt people. It’s not right to scare people. It’s not right to carry on with such disregard for the people around you.”
Sheen’s lawyer Yale Galanter has blasted Capri’s allegations the star placed his hands around her throat the night he reportedly trashed a New York hotel room, insisting the claims are “completely false” and an “attempt to cash in on his celebrity.”
“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,” Galanter said in a written statement Monday. “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.”
Galanter adds: “If she pursues legal action, we will defend this vigorously. These allegations against Mr. Sheen are completely false, and are a blatant attempt to cash in on his celebrity.”
