Actor Charlie Sheen has accused porn star Capri Anderson of extorting $1 million from him after their "consensual encounter" in a hotel room here.

"This case involves a shakedown and extortion of the internationally known actor and celebrity Charlie Sheen...by an opportunist pornographic film star and publicity-hungry scam artist," said a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Anderson, whose real name is Christina Walsh, "fabricated a sensational tale about being assaulted, battered and held against will" and then threatened to go to the media with "her false tale" if Sheen didn't pay up, the lawsuit said.

When Sheen "refused to succumb to Walsh's extortionate and illegal demands," her representatives contacted the Aspen authorities who prosecuted Sheen in a domestic violence case and gave an interview that aired on ABC News.

Walsh told ABC that she had been hired to escort Sheen to dinner last month but the night ended with Sheen turning violent and Walsh locked in the bathroom in fear for her life.

SheenWalsh's attorney Keith M. Davidson said the extortion attempt "never happened".

"It's a blatant attempt by them to muddy the waters and confuse the situation. They are throwing a bunch of mud at the wall and hoping something will stick," people.com quoted him as saying.
