Capri Anderson drops plans for civil lawsuit against Charlie Sheen

Charlie Sheen’s latest hooker accuser, stage name Capri Anderson, has dropped a planned civil suit against the actor. Her rep tells CNN that she’s decided not to sue Charlie but denies that it has anything to do with Sheen’s extortion lawsuit against Anderson. It may have more to do with the text messages that were recently leaked, in which Sheen and Anderson allegedly try to work out a $20,000 payment from Sheen in exchange for Anderson’s silence about that fateful night.

According to Sheen’s rep, he never offered Anderson a payoff. The leak of these texts seems to prove otherwise. I would bet that Sheen’s camp leaked them despite their denials. Anderson is casual and friendly in the messages. She sounds more concerned about getting cash to replace her designer purse than being scared for her safety as she claimed in recent interviews. She writes: “u trashed my brand new prada purse dude not cool – how u managed to rip the strap off and put 2 holes in it is beyond me.”

What’s more is that Radar, which was the first outlet to get a statement from Sheen after the incident, had a story yesterday that Anderson spoke with Sheen’s ex, Denise Richards, prior to Sheen’s meltdown and told her all about her life as a prostitute. (Some would say that it isn’t an entirely unfamiliar lifestyle for Richards, although I’ll leave it at that.) Richards was of course at the Plaza hotel staying in a nearby hotel room with her two daughters that night. Sheen’s team is in overdrive trying to smear this woman, and that’s not difficult considering that she’s a porn star and a prostitute.

There’s still a criminal case pending against Sheen, however, and Anderson’s rep tells CNN that’s as far as she’s taking her complaint for now. “Ms. Walsh has thus, and for the time being, opted to consult the New York City authorities regarding the events of October 26, 2010… Through the process [of speaking out, Anderson] has experienced the natural emotions of many domestic violence victims, that of fear, anxiety and ultimately, a certain level of empowerment.”

Sheen’s lawsuit against Anderson claims that she stole his $165,000 Patek Philippe watch, and that’s what prompted his meltdown, during which Anderson was never in physical danger:


“Walsh admitted to several people that she had in fact stolen a very expensive watch from Sheen, and that she had given the watch to a friend to hold,” the suit said.

It was the disappearance of the Patek Philippe watch from Sheen’s hotel room that caused their evening to go bad last month, according to Sheen’s petition.

“Sheen asked Walsh to return the watch, and when Walsh refused and falsely denied that she had taken the watch, Sheen became extremely upset,” the suit said. “Walsh then locked herself in the bathroom of the hotel room and refused to come out.”

The lawsuit says that “At no time did Sheen assault, batter or threaten Walsh.”

She locked herself in the bathroom “because she was afraid that Sheen might find the watch on her,” the suit said.

So did this woman steal a watch from Sheen, did he nearly choke her and did she genuinely fear for her life? We know that Sheen has physically harmed several former girlfriends and wives, we know that the room was completely trashed, and we know that the cops were called on the scene whether Anderson called them or not. Sheen’s people insist that she called a girlfriend, not the police, and in her interviews she never said that she is the one who called 911. The truth is probably somewhere in between Anderson and Sheen’s version, but I don’t doubt that she was scared for her safety that night. Anderson’s tears seemed real to me, although many of you vehemently disagreed and understandably question her motives.

    He’s such a scary guy.

    No matter what she does for a living, she shouldn’t be assaulted.

    She shouldn’t steal, either, but I hope she’s got his crusty watch AND a check for a lot more than 20 grand. And another Prada bag- a real one this time.

  2. Rita says:

    Okay, my bet is that CS paid her off to drop everything and his extortion suit was the first slap in a slap suit.

    I think CS threw a fit and probably said things like “I’m going to kill you, you bitch if you don’t give me back my watch”. I also think the “hands around my neck” was far from a choke hold.

    She gets some money and he escapes once again. The criminal thing will be dropped as soon as all funds are transfered.

    I don’t think this was the case that should send CS to jail but there’s one coming. I hope he gets several months until he realizes this bullshit isn’t worth the trouble. Not that he will change much but he might stop assaulting women.

    The worst thing about this is the publicity of a supposed “victim” crying wolf. It makes it much tougher on his next real victim.

  3. Rachael says:

    He’s crazy. I’m sure she was scared and even if she did steal something, that’s no excuse for trashing a room and threatening her life.

  4. bellaluna says:

    I bet she had no idea how TRULY NASTY he would become when she went public. Although, with his reputation, I don’t know how that’s possible.

  5. mln says:

    This is why he sticks to escorts and shady women with problems because he knows that once he gets to court their behavior is called into question first. I am sad to say his behavior won’t stop until he kills himself or someone else.

  6. Newbie says:

    Again. I don’t understand how this guy gets women into bed with him. Not only is he an absolute ass, he’s grumpy/scary looking to boot.

  7. Jackson says:

    “Through the process [of speaking out, Anderson] has experienced the natural emotions of many domestic violence victims, …………..”

    Would this be considered ‘domestic violence?’ Was she his date, or his escort? Is it still domestic violence for a prostitute? (Seriously, I’m asking this.) It doesn’t sound correct to me but maybe it is. I think her lawyer is trying to make her sound more sympathetic by calling this ‘domestic violence’ though.

  8. Lucinda says:

    I think she tried to play him and he got nasty. I doubt she ever truly feared for her life but was no doubt surprised by how fast things got ugly. If charges should be pressed, in this case I think it’s more property damage to the hotel than anything.

    The problem is that the next time he really does hurt a woman (and there will be a next time), like someone else said, this chick has made it really hard for the next true victim to be heard. But I don’t think Charlie goes for women who aren’t a piece of work already.

  9. Moreaces says:

    Again. I don’t understand how this guy gets women into bed with him. Not only is he an absolute ass, he’s grumpy/scary looking to boot.

    Well, he pays them.

  10. MarenGermany says:

    I bet she took blow with him and thats what scares her now.

  11. spooge says:

    What a sleezebag she is.

  12. Jazz says:

    Charlie’s goons must of got to her.

  13. aenflex says:

    Sheen best hope no one tapes HIM during one of these rampages. Perhaps only then will his career take the hit that is most certainly deserves. He’s a bitchy, sadistic little baby, and his show isn’t even funny. He think Richards is ‘wife-material’. Shit at least Mel had the presence of mind to marry a decent woman, if he himself was a piece of dogturd. WTF people?

  14. Persistent Cat says:

    He ripped the strap off a Prada purse? That requires some strength. Scary, enraged strength.

    He’s such a vile human being.

  15. Gabriela says:

    I can easily buy that she stole his watch, he lost his nerves and choked her and now she is trying to get some media attention, ’cause 20k wasn’t enough.
    Yes, she is a sleazebag, but that’s no reason to physically assault her.

  16. Missy says:

    I cant wait for this chick to go away. I think she’s milking this for all its worth. Im no fan of CS by any means and I do believe he is violent towards women. That said, I dont believe a word out of her mouth. Its funny how she’s only now bringing on the tears with all the TV interviews but after the actual incident she was only worried about her purse and being photographed buying a new watch. I think she saw dollars signs and ran with it, next stop will probably be a reality show.

  17. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    Yea I knew she was leaving out details. Capri didn’t mention she stole the man’s watch, of course you don’t deserve to be choked for it. I don’t think he really choked her, just maybe got angry and started throwing stuff around. The text mgs are pretty shady to and don’t show either in a flattering light.

  18. guesty says:

    why wasn’t he adamant about the watch thing during his texts? obviously his lawsuit is just another pressure tactic that seems to be working.

  19. Po says:

    I will just keep saying that Charlie Sheen is dangerous. You can talk about his accusers all you want to but the fact is that he keeps having accusers.

  20. Me1st says:

    I think this whole thing is a bogus attempt to get this thing famous, she thinks that since he is so full of cash she will end up like one of Tiger’s mistresses…didn’t she look high as a kite on that interview and now all of the sudden she changes her tune? this is all about publicity!!

  21. sapphire says:

    Oh boy, another pair of douche/douchette outtakes. Truth, as usual, somewhere in the middle.

  22. minnie says:

    i completely agree with rita in that i think he paid her off.

    it was all about him saving face (what he wanted) and her getting a payout (what she wanted). this way they both get what they want– he comes out fighting the charges and countersuing to show just how seriously he denies her accusations. and then she suddenly (and mysteriously) drops her suit and goes away? i think his team offered her a large sum of money to play like she was scared of his countersuit, drop her own suit, and go away quietly.

    now he looks less villianous to the public, and she is probably laughing all the way to the bank.

  23. icantbelievethis says:

    So CS’s people say she stole the watch and suddenly everyone believes it. Please, if she stole a watch he would’ve filed charges against her. We all know the police were on his side (or else he’d be facing so many charges from that night instead of being asked if he wanted a ride to the hospital).

    I do think he paid her off. And I believe that he choked her.

    I think it is sick that he’s wandering free b/c he is going to seriously hurt someone. At the very least he should’ve been charged b/c of the drug use and be put in jail. Instead he smears people, gets away with everything and the cycle continues.

  24. REALIST says:

    The burden of proof in a criminal suit (reasonable doubt) is much higher than in a civil suit (more likely than not). The evidentiary rules are different, even more so depending on the judge. Capri in the criminal suit represents a victim, not a litigant. Long story short-if she is sincere in her belief that Charlie Sheen intended to harm her, she has to back burner the civil suit and wait for the criminal investigation to proceed to its logical conclusion. Of course, I’m giving Capri the benefit of the doubt; the fact is, no DA would never take this to trial because she would have zero credibility as a witness.
    Jeez, hasn’t CS at least been charged with assault for one of these incidents over the years, or did he plead out to a lesser charge? What’s his criminal record?
    Of course, Sheen will never go behind bars-too much money of his own, worth too much to his costars and bosses because of his sitcom; but perhaps the prospect of jail time might wake him up just a bit.
    Interesting thought-so much of this is about image and reputation. Tiger Woods represented a wholesome image, so when his secrets were discovered, his image fell apart and most of his commercial sponsors abandoned him. Everyone in H’wood knows Charlie Sheen is scum, so it almost gives his handlers (and him) an excuse to laugh it off as “one bad night”.
    Foolish man-one of these days he’s going to have one bad night too many. Let’s hope he doesn’t take anyone with him when he goes down.

  25. Jeri says:

    Charlie’s people got to her just as they did his wife. Women are afraid to openly accuse him of his physical and mental abuse.

  26. mm says:

    How does this guy still have a job? How is he still in the public eye? He’s been skivvy like this for the past 20 years.

  27. Jayna says:

    She starts a civil suit before making a criminal complaint. LOL No pity for her. It was a payday for the ho. Charlie is sick, but this girl is hardcore and out for money only.

  28. Crash2GO2 says:

    “Charlie is sick, but this girl is hardcore and out for money only.”

    So what? If some asshole that’s gotten away with it 150 times already and is loaded, and I was someone that no one would listen to, I’d hit him where it hurt too. His wallet. AND she got to publicly expose his sick debauchery and get a little face time for herself.

    Good for her. At least she didn’t end up dead like the other one.

  29. Ming says:

    He “accidently” shot Kelly Preston. Yeah, accidently. He’s a dangerous sleazy fool, along the lines of the Van Der Sloot creep.

  30. Matt says:

    @ crash 2go2, ITA – the only way to get Charlie Sheen to face any kind of consequences for his actions is to make him shell out big money. He seemingly has a huge squad of very talented lawyers and PR people who can keep him out of jail and ALSO keep his career and professional repuation intact.

  31. Kim says:

    Greedy girl should have taken his $20k offer and ran! So the reason he got so pissed at her is because she stole his watch!!!! She is trash! He isnt a peach but doesnt mean he deserves to be robbed. She should be arrested for theft.

  32. Kim says:

    Persistent cat — if some stole my $20k plus watch id rip their arms off not just their purse straps!!!! He probably grabbed the purse to look for the watch and she grabbed it back knowing it was in there and they both pulled the straps off in struggle.

    Im not saying Charlie is an angel by any means but this girl is trash.

  33. maria says:

    I think charlie can do so much better.
    He pays all these escorts or whatever and then they stab in the back…and try to rip him off.
    What an expenisve time it was but no escort should steal…that’s totally wrong…u cannot blame him….it sucks that his good time has to be exposed the way it did……he was better off going to a parlour….she just out for a quick dollar…….

  34. gg says:

    maria, darlin – the man was naked in a hotel restroom an hour or so before, with coke all over his face, while his party was at the table. His minder had to come in and re-dress him. He’s effed up as a person can get. Why he is still abusing women, not in jail, and on a hit tv show is beyond me.

    Anyway, why are this lady’s eye’s always half closed? She looks like she’s on quaaludes.

  35. Trippin says:

    I don’t know who is worse.

  36. Ryan says:

    Maria and Kim are trolls. Probably the same lonely person. Who is surfing celeb gossip at 5:29 am?

    Charlie is serial woman batterer and hopefully he gets whats coming to him. This guy is complete scum.

  37. Drew says:

    Shes a shady bitch for even touching the mans watch
