LAWFUEL – The Law Newswire – The former live-in girlfriend of “NYPD Blue” star Esai Morales is suing Morales for allegedly sexually assaulting her and giving her herpes.
A representative of Morales, 44, was not immediately available for comment. He has had roles in such movies as “Bad Boys” and “La Bamba” and played Lt. Tony Rodriguez in “NYPD Blue.”
The lawsuit was filed yesterday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Elizabeth Mazzocchi alleges intentional and negligent transmission of a sexually transmitted disease, plus assault, battery and breach of oral contract (no, not that kind of oral).
The lawsuit alleges that Morales knew he had herpes and never told Mazzocchi — leaving her with “an incurable disease that will have associated medical expenses, pain and discomfort for the rest of her life.”
