NFL Lineman Tells Girlfriend that Herpes Sores on His Penis Were From Getting It Stuck In His Zipper
Awkward! Pittsburgh Steelers defensive lineman Cam Thomas is being sued by a woman who claims he gave her herpes. His excuse for sores on his penis was that “it got caught in his zipper.” Sure it did, buddy! Here’s the details from TMZ Sports, who broke the story first:
Adrienne claims she noticed “puss-filled bumps on his buttocks and inner thigh” and asked about them — but he explained they were the result of sweat buildup caused by his football gear.
In the docs, Adrienne says she also noticed “bruises and sores” on his penis back in March 2010 — but again, he had an explanation … telling her “the sores on [the] penis came from getting it stuck in a zipper.”
Adrienne claims she was tested for STDs in December 2010 but the results showed she was clean. It wasn’t until February 2012 that she tested positive for genital herpes … and she claims Thomas is the only person who could’ve passed along the disease.
In her suit, Adrienne also claims Thomas was physically abusive during their relationship.
She’s suing for sexual battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, fraud through intentional concealment and negligence. She’s asking for unspecified damages.
Ah, it’s like the ballad of Ron Mexico all over again. Stay classy, NFL.
