I am sorry this post took so long, but I needed to make sure it did not reveal too much because it is so sensitive
. There are always allegations flying back and forth about what some celebrity has given to another celebrity, i.e Hepatitis (see Pam Anderson from Tommy Lee), or an STD, etc., but it something altogether different when it is HIV. When it is HIV, almost no one wants to come forward as this posting will show.
I have a client ( B list – a few television shows, never top billed and some made for tv movies where she was top billed) — who came to me when she wanted to file for divorce. For some reason, I rarely get the husbands who come to me, just generally the wives. Anyway, she came to me and she wanted to get a divorce because her husband had been cheating on her. It was not the first time, but she was just tired of all the lies and she felt he was not honest with her about anything from the time they began dating. Of course, this self-realization about truthfulness did not hit it her until after they were married. They had a pre-nup and it was airtight and so she was only going to get what the pre-nup allowed which was not much, but I figured we might be able to argue for a little more support or an additional piece of property and he might give in, just to have us go away and to keep the legal bills to a minimum.
She ( “W”) thought his cheating was confined to just a fling here and there. There is no way to describe him without some sort of revelation so lets just call him a businessman. (“B”) It turns out that B enjoyed swingers clubs, and other hedonistic pursuits as much as he could and was not really selective in either his partners or their gender. As these revelations came out, W went to her doctor because she had not been feeling well and was dealing with incredible levels of stress. While there she decided to get a full bloodwork done as well to find out if she had contracted anything. Well there is a saying when you are getting bloodwork done, that no news is good news. The trouble was she got lots of news and it was not pretty. She had not only contracted HIV from the soon to be ex, but found out she was pregnant as well by the soon to be ex.
At first B denied he was either the father of the child or the person who had infected W, but soon caved. He admitted he had known he was HIV positive, but did not tell W because he did not think he would ever give it to her because they had not had sex in so long. One night, they both got drunk at a party and when they got home had sex for the first time in almost a year and it was at that time W became pregnant and HIV positive.
In order to keep all of this out of the press, not only for his sake and for W's, there was a very large settlement that at least somewhat made up for the tragedy that he caused W. W continues to work although she is probably more of a C lister now because she would rather not be in the public eye as much and she thinks that just enjoying life is probably the best thing for her.
I know you have questions about the child and if W gave birth or had an abortion, but that is just going to have to remain a mystery.
