Charlie Sheen: Capri Anderson Tried to Extort $1 Million from Me

The actor denies Anderson's allegations of violence and hits her with a lawsuit

The saga of Charlie Sheen and Capri Anderson carried on today as the Two and a Half Men actor filed suit against the adult film star for extortion.

Anderson, 22, went public with her side of the story this week when she sat down with Good Morning America and Nightline to talk about her now-infamous evening in the Plaza hotel with Sheen.

Though his camp denies she was hired for sex, Anderson claims she was Sheen's escort on the evening of Oct. 25. She said she feared for her life and claimed that at one point, Sheen put his hands around her neck. She described it as "a bad, bad situation." 

But Sheen, 45, and his attorneys are crying foul. TMZ.com reports that Sheen is suing her for attempting to extort him for roughly $1 million.

A lawsuit filed on Tuesday claims that Anderson (whose real name is Christina Walsh) demanded money and threatened to go public with what happened. She said she'd take her story to prosecutors in Aspen, thus busting Sheen for violating his parole. 

The lawsuit also reads that despite reports, Sheen did not batter, threaten or hold her against her will. The suit claims that Anderson told the NYPD Sheen was "a total gentleman" and says she stole the actor's $165,000 Patek Philippe watch.

But Sheen's lawyers didn't stop there. His attorney Yale Galanter also talked to GMA. "This girl has just changed her story," Galanter said of Anderson during the Tuesday morning interview. "She has absolutely no credibility. It's totally untrue. It's complete fabrication. It's just a complete pack of lies."

His lawyer may seem confident, but things could get a little trickier for Sheen's team if the text messages TMZ.com claims to have attained are, in fact, real. A series of texts reportedly between Sheen and Anderson reveal the troubled actor offered her $20,000 for all her troubles just one day after the Plaza hotel debacle.

In the alleged texts, Sheen calls Anderson "sweetie" and promises to wire her money. But TMZ notes that the transaction of funds never actually took place.
