Prominent Hollywood attorney Neil Meyer is accused of turning one of his clients into a virtual sex slave, reports the Daily News.
In a lawsuit filed by an undisclosed actress identified only as Jane Doe, Meyer is accused of sexually assaulting his client and forcing her to “accede to sexual acts that the plaintiff found repulsive, humiliating , dehumanizing, painful and physically and mentally injurious.”
Among Meyer’s high profile clients is actress Halle Berry (photo by Vainstyle).
Meyer says he is a victim of a shakedown.
“The salacious allegations of the complaint are little more than an attempt to extort a settlement payment, which will never happen,” said his attorney Mark Baute. “Jane Doe’s allegations have been rejected by the state bar twice. In addition, my client obtained a TRO (temporary restraining order) against Jane Doe due to her erratic behavior.”
The Daily News reports Meyer filed for a restraining order in March against Chinese American actress Wen Yann Shih, 32 (pictured right). Shih has appeared in such TV shows as 7th Heaven and Felicity. However, there is no confirmation Shih is Jane Doe.
