TMZ: Evil Angel Posts Full Stagliano-Summers Scene
LOS ANGELES — In what TMZ called "an interest of full disclosure," Evil Angel has posted the full scene on its website from "Buttman's Stretch Class 4" that led to performer Katie Summers filing a lawsuit against director John Stagliano, who is also the owner of the company.
TMZ on Sunday stated that Stagliano "couldn't possibly have put a female XXX actress at risk — because he never had sex with her ... so claims his porn company." Stagliano's wife Karen had previously made that point to XBIZ when news of the suit broke last week.
Summers filed the suit against Stagliano and his company Evil Angel because she says Stagliano never disclosed he was HIV-positive before co-starring with her in the scene. In her suit, Summers claims the lack of disclosure was "negligence, intentional infliction of emotional distress and sexual battery" among other allegations.
"The scene features touching for sure. ... but no genital-to-genital contact," TMZ reported. "As far as we know, you can't get HIV from what's depicted in the flick."
TMZ quoted an unidentified Evil Angel rep saying, "It's the equivalent of shaking hands."
Summers' lawyer Robert Starr admits his client is not HIV-positive, according to TMZ, and while she didn't have sexual intercourse with Stagliano, the lawyer still feels Stagliano should have disclosed his condition.
