Charlie Sheen is hitting back at porn star Capri Anderson's claims that he assaulted her during a drug-fueled bender last month. The actor has filed a lawsuit against Anderson—whose real name is Christina Walsh—alleging that she tried to extort $1 million from him after a consensual encounter in a New York hotel last month, TMZ reports.

The suit describes Anderson as "an opportunistic pornographic film star and publicity-hungry scam artist" who threatened "to embarrass him and attempt to damage his career by going to the media with her false tale" if Sheen didn't pay up. Anderson, who has filed a civil complaint against Sheen alleging assault and false imprisonment, initially told New York cops that Sheen acted "like a total gentleman," according to the suit. The lawsuit also accuses her of stealing Sheen's $165,000 watch. Click here for more.
