Everyone screws up in relationships from time to time, but some things are just lawsuit worthy. One Nashville woman took her issues to court, claiming that she became infected with HSV-2 genital herpes after her boyfriend of four years had cheated on her.
The woman, who filed the complaint under the pseudonym “PH”, says she was free of any sexually transmitted diseases before starting what she thought was a monogamous relationship in Nov. 2013. According to legal documents:
“PH and Gregory Cole, of Brentwood, first met in 2010, and then reconnected in 2014, and formed a sexual relationship which lasted until 2018, and she believed Cole to be heterosexual, and monogamous, until April of 2018, when Gregory Cole accidentally called the woman from his cell phone during a sexual encounter with another man, and the phone call lasted one hour and twenty-eight minutes. The woman says she listened to the entire call, which included explicit sexual conversation and narrating various actions in which he and his male partner were engaging.”
Following the shocking call, PH went to get tested for STDs, only to find out that she in fact had been infected with HSV-2, genital herpes, which is incurable. The woman says she hasn’t had any other sexual partners since hooking up with Cole.
She is currently suing Cole for $1 million, siting battery, infliction of emotional distress, both intentional and neglect, negligence, and fraud. However, Cole has refused to speak with her about the incident. Guess she’ll see him in court.
