A police investigation is underway following claims made by Charlie Sheen's former fiancee that he threatened to have her killed and did not disclose that he was HIV-positive after learning his diagnosis.
The Los Angeles Police Department served a search warrant on the New York City office of Radar Online and The National Enquirer on Tuesday in order to obtain a recording of Sheen where he allegedly says he would pay $20,000 to have his ex Brett Rossi killed and admits that he did not disclose to her that he was HIV positive after his diagnosis.
The search came just days after Rossi, whose real name is Scottine Ross, filed a 'criminal threats' report against Sheen and received a restraining order.
Radar Online reports that the documents they received from police stated; 'The victim is Scottine Ross, aka Brett Rossi. In 2013 and 2014, Ross and actor Charlie Sheen had been involved in a relationship.'
The search warrant meanwhile said that the tape they were looking for which was described by the website 'tends to show that a felony has been committed.'
Radar previously reported that the conversation on the tape contains a woman saying; 'Why did you tell me you were not infected?'
Sheen allegedly replies to this by saying; '[Because it’s none of you f****** business.'
The actor also allegedly says about Rossi; 'This piece of s*** needs to be f****** buried. I’d rather spend 20 grand to have her head kicked in.'
The warrant given to Radar states; 'Ross stated that during the time she resided with Sheen she endured domestic violence, physical assaults and death threats.
'Ross reported that on several occasions Sheen had brandished firearms at her and threatened her life.
'Ross stated that she did not report the violence and abuse at the time the incidents occurred, as she feared for her safety and was under Sheen’s control.'
It goes on to say; 'Ross stated she witnessed Sheen in fits of rage and violent outbursts on numerous occasions. Ross stated that she witnessed Sheen threatened to kill his former wife Denise Richards and their children’s lives.
'Ross stated that Sheen made threats to "put a hit on her former boyfriend," which Ross understood to mean Sheen wanted to hire someone to kill her former boyfriend.
'Ross stated that during the relationship, she discovered that Sheen was infected with and being treated for HIV. Ross stated that Sheen had not disclosed the fact that he was HIV positive to her.
'Ross further stated that Sheen had unprotected sex with her while infected with HIV and Sheen did not disclose that he was HIV positive to her prior to engaging in sexual intercourse.'
Sheen's lawyer Marty Singer said in a statement last week; 'This is a publicity stunt. The TRO was obtained without notice to Charlie Sheen or his attorney. I believe it is the first time someone obtained an order based on a story in a tabloid.'
Rossi previously filed a $5million lawsuit against Sheen in December for assault and battery after first claiming Sheen did not disclose his HIV status
Sheen fired back by filing court documents claiming Rossi not only knew that he was HIV-positive, but also was the one who 'insisted' that the couple have unprotected sex.
The defendant complaint went on to allege that 'Rossi did not describe how she was having sexual relations with others while she was engaged to Sheen and having unprotected sex at Rossi's insistence.'
Rossi had said in her complaint Sheen did not tell her his status until after they had engaged in unprotected sex five times and she found his medication.
Sheen is also denied many of Rossi's other claims in that complaint, including that he was ever physically abusive to her or forced her to have an abortion after she became pregnant with the couple's child.
Sheen said the court should dismiss Rossi's lawsuit due to the non-disclosure agreement she signed the first time they met in 2013 which includes a clause requiring she settle all claims against the actor in arbitration.
Rossi admitted to signing the NDA saying she did so shortly after arriving at his home to have sex with him for $10,000 but now calls the document an 'illegal, invalid and void non-disclosure agreement.'
The pair quickly grew close, and Sheen proposed to Rossi just a few months after meeting her during a trip to Hawaii over Valentine's Day in 2014.
A month later, Rossi claims she became pregnant.
Rossi said that she and Sheen wanted to have a baby, and that the actor wanted to name it Charlie if it was a girl.
When she told him the news however he became upset according to her documents which say; 'Sheen indicated that he did not want his child to have his blood type (i.e., HIV-positive) and told [Rossi] that she had to have an abortion.'
She also claimed that in October Sheen had agreed to settle for $1million and a percentage of his Anger Management residuals, but then 'reneged' in favor of a jury trial.
Sheen and his legal team explain the reason behind this in their complaint, saying that before he and his team could sign the papers Rossi appeared on a website bashing the actor.
That video - obtained by Radar Online and filmed in April of 2015 - showed Rossi at home burning mementos from her relationship with Sheen.
She can be seen sobbing as she yells; 'You exposed me to HIV for a year and a half! You made me get rid of a baby.'
Rossi then adds; 'You offered me a hundred grand after basically being married to you… you piece of sh*t. After everything I fking did for you and your fking kids!'
Sheen's attorneys believe this video and the comments Rossi makes about Sheen's status are a violation of the settlement agreement and that she should now receive no money from the settlement.
'Nearly a year into their relationship, Rossi revealed her true self: A woman motivated by greed and consumed with jealously,' Sheen said in his filing.
