Sam Robeson - April 7, 2018
This is another long as hell Blind Item, so if you think you're above sleuthing the married actor pollinating men with his A-list HIV, move right along. After conferring with my co-worker, we came up with these guys who tick all the marks, in order of likelihood: Will Smith, John Travolta, Joseph Gordon Levitt (eh?) and Ryan Gosling.
Everyone loves this actor. If you ask someone if they like him, they will say yes. He started out on television as a teen on a hit network show and has had some decent movie roles over the years. He is a lead, but one of those quiet leads who straddles the line between indie and box office getting those quiet box office movies. Generally the movies he leads are your movies that look like they are going to have some Oscar noms but always fall a little short. You all know him. Name to face? It is a tough one, but you all know the face. He is married. The thing is though, he is the guy who always leaves his wife at home even if he has a premiere. He got married to have people stop asking questions about his private life.
This story happened about a year ago and the actor paid a settlement and the victim signed a NDA, but is willing to speak here. Apparently our actor, even though he lives in town got a hotel room. He then found our victim on Grindr. Our actor is HIV+. Our actor didn't tell the victim that though. Our actor told the victim he liked rough sex and offered the victim $1000 for rough sex. The victim agreed and before he knew it he was tied up and being used. Our actor didn't use any protection and beat and basically raped the victim multiple times while the victim was restrained. At the end of it, the actor released the victim and actually gave him $1500 instead of the $1000 but had him sign an NDA. The NDA also included a provision that forbid the guy for suing if he caught any kind of STD from the actor.
Fast forward about six months and the victim discovered he is now HIV+. The only person he had unprotected sex with was the actor. When he tried to reach out to the actor he was shut down by his legal team and a pair of security people who visited the studio apartment of the victim. He was reminded of the NDA. When he threatened to go to the media, a repeat visit from the security guards and another letter from an attorney who threatened to sue the victim even though the victim was HIV+. Our victim got a lawyer. The lawyer managed to get $20K from the actor but that was it. He did also find out, the actor has done this to other men before. At least three other men that the lawyer discovered.
