Sheen fires back at escort with own suit

Adult star Capri Anderson is suing Charlie Sheen, claiming that he grabbed her by the throat and threatened her during his infamous October hotel-room meltdown. But the actor’s lawyer says the allegations are bogus, and that Charlie is countersuing for “civil extortion.”

“This girl has just changed her story. She has absolutely no credibility,” attorney Yale Galanter declared to “Good Morning America.” “It’s totally untrue. It’s complete fabrication. It’s just a complete pack of lies.”

Charlie’s camp believes their case is bolstered by the fact that the paid escort never told police she felt threatened or was harmed during the incident.

Her people “told us that if we did not write them a check that they were going to go on the air and they were going to lie about what occurred that night in the Plaza Hotel room,” the lawyer said.

However, TMZ claims to have text messages from Charlie in which he offers Capri cash. “All I need is an Acct number etc and I will wire u 20k if u think that will cover everything,” the actor allegedly texted, in response to her complaint that he ruined her Prada purse. “I really feel bad, u are as cool and sexy and as sweet and fun and friendly as they get!”

Whose story do you believe?

Courtside Courtship

Is there anyone in Hollywood Kim Kardashian has not been linked with lately? In just the past few weeks, the single socialite has been rumored to have sparks with Kanye West, John Mayer and “One Tree Hill” actor Michael Copon. Now, she’s been sighted with model Gabriel Aubry — Halle Berry’s ex-beau, and baby daddy to her daughter Nahla, 2 — and, naturally, tongues are wagging.

“Kim and Gabriel met a few times while they were both in New York, and there was definitely chemistry,” a source dished to Life&Style magazine. “But when Kim returned to Los Angeles last Thursday, they really took it to the next level. They went out to dinner, caught the Lakers game and spent time at Kim’s house.”

The pair, who were photographed sitting side by side in courtside seats, were “definitely flirty” at the Lakers game, a gawker told Us magazine.

“They started seeing each other in the last few weeks,” a source told the New York Post. We’re guessing this is a fling. Can you really imagine Kim playing stepmom to a 2-year-old?

Bad Morning

Though she recently got engaged after dating beau Eric Johnson for only five months, Jessica Simpson isn’t pregnant — she’s just nauseous.

With her usual blithe candor (remember when she announced that she rarely brushes her teeth?), the singer admitted Monday on “The Early Show” that she had just vomited, telling host Harry Smith, “I’ve had better mornings, I have to admit … I won’t let you smell my breath.” She was unable to perform songs, and canceled an appearance on “Late Night With David Letterman.”

Despite the a.m. timing, however, this was no bout of morning sickness — simply a case of the flu. “She’s not pregnant,” a source tells Us. “She was just sick.”

Either way, we certainly hope Jessica made an exception to her not-brushing-her-teeth policy that day.
