According to TMZ , Legendary horror maven Clive Barker — who’s responsible for the “Candyman” and “Hellraiser” franchises — gave his ex-boyfriend HIV … and then kicked him out on the street … this according to claims in a new lawsuit.
Emilian David Armstrong says in the suit … he met Barker in early 1996, and they quickly moved in together. Armstrong had a daughter from a previous heterosexual relationship. She also moved in.
Armstrong says in November, 1996, he was diagnosed with HIV. The suit claims Barker had tested positive and had urged Armstrong to get tested. Armstrong is convinced — Barker gave him HIV.
Armstrong says Barker confessed he had previously engaged in a sexual relationship with his own cousin, who had AIDS — and also engaged in sadomasochism in prior relationships that involved syringes.
As for why Armstrong waited 16 years to file a lawsuit — Armstrong says he and Barker tried to work out their relationship and battle the virus together … but things started to go south in 2003.
According to the lawsuit, that’s when Barker became addicted to prescription painkillers such as Vicodin, Percocet, Demerol, and Oxycodone. Armstrong claims Barker would mix these drugs with alcohol, cocaine, and/or crystal meth and use them for recreation.
But Armstrong says he still didn’t give up on the relationship — and tried to help Barker through his drug problems … but they only got worse. Armstrong says Barker started throwing drug-fueled parties with young men ranging in age from 19 to early 20’s.
The suit claims in 2009, Barker kicked Armstrong out of his house — along with Armstrong’s daughter — and left them destitute.
Armstrong claims he was a partner in Barker’s business ventures and is entitled to a cut of the profits. He also says he was promised support for life.
According to Inquisitr, it seemed Richards would be playing the business partner of Sheen’s character’s ex-wife, Jennifer. But now, Richards explains, her role is that of the “love interest” of Sheen’s character in the FX comedy.
Richards will be joining the cast along with Sheen’s real-life dad Martin Sheen, who will be playing Charlie’s character’s dad on the show as well.
Not too long ago, Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards didn’t get on all that well. Back when he did his post-Two and a Half Men tour, the actor verbally attacked his former wife and mother to his daughters on-stage, calling Richards a “loser,” a “whore,” a “dognapper” and referring to her as “Duh-neese.”
But it would appear the former marrieds have made up, as Richards confirms their new working relationship to Extra TV. Richards spilled:
“Charlie came to me and asked me to do an episode on the show. I saw a sneak peek of the first episode and it’s really funny… I did a table read last week. I play a love interest to my ex-husband.”
And while Sheen was violently angry with his former ex-wife just last year, Denise says that he’s calmed down a lot and the two have repaired their relationship:
“He’s in a really good place… Everything is good. He’s been very focused on our children and on his job.”
Denise Richards is set to appear in the first episode of Anger Management, which airs June 28th on FX.
