Falcons QB Michael Vick (AKA Ron Mexico) has herpes

http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/0405051vick1.html


APRIL 5--Claiming that Michael Vick gave her herpes, a Georgia woman is suing the star NFL quarterback for negligence and battery. According to the below lawsuit, Sonya Elliot, a 26-year-old health care worker, was infected with the sexually transmitted disease in April 2003 after an unprotected encounter with Vick at the athlete's Duluth, Georgia home. Elliott alleges that after testing positive for Herpes Simplex 2, she confronted the Atlanta Falcons star, 24, about her condition. "I've got something to tell you. I've got it," Vick admitted to her, according to Elliott's State Court complaint, which alleges that Vick then told her that "he had not known how to tell her about his condition, and that it was not something that he liked to talk about." Elliott's complaint also contends that Vick "apologized profusely" for not telling her he was infected with the STD. Elliot's lawsuit alleges that Vick has used the name "Ron Mexico" and, in a related court filing, her lawyers are seeking Vick's admission that he used the "Mexico" alias--and perhaps other fake names--"for the purpose of herpes testing and/or treatment." In her lawsuit, which does not specify monetary damages, Elliott states that she met Vick at a Virginia Beach nightclub in May 2001 and, shortly thereafter, began a close personal relationship with the football star (though the couple did not have sex until late-2002). Last December, Vick, the top overall pick in the 2001 National Football League draft, signed a ten-year, $130 million contract with the Falcons, the richest deal in league history.

Shame on Ron Mexico if true, but this chick is a knucklehead.

Not to hijack, but I saw that the NFL is now allowing Gay to be put on jerseys, once they remembered they had an actual player with that name.

I'm pretty sure that Vick is pretty recognizable in GA, esp. with his huge house and all the bling that he had.

I never go to thesmokinggun website so I dont know how reliable their stories are but I am suprised no one ever mentions this since having herpes is a pretty serious thing and with someone like Vick it would be big news.

Smoking Gun is pretty reputable when it comes to stuff like this. They've broken a lot of "celebrity" blotter news in the past few years.
