The former star Purdue basketball player is being accused of giving a former sexual partner, Alyssa Chambers, an incurable STD, according to a civil lawsuit. Chambers also claims in the suit that she’s not the only person the center has infected.
Haas is facing a $1 million lawsuit in Tippecanoe (Ind.) Circuit Court, alleging he lied to her about the disease, according to USA Today. The suit states the two had a sexual encounter on May 15, 2017, and she was found to have been infected with herpes two weeks later. Chambers claimed in the civil suit she didn’t have sex with anyone but Haas from May 15 to June 7, the date she was diagnosed.
According to the report, the 7-foot-1 Haas, Purdue’s leading scorer who missed the last two games of the NCAA Tournament after suffering a fractured elbow, told Chambers in text messages he had been tested, diagnosed and successfully treated for a sexually transmitted disease earlier by Purdue University Student Health Services. The lawsuit says Haas told her that after the treatment, he was clean.
A former partner of Haas’ told Chambers he didn’t tell her about his STD until they were together for six months, the suit states. The person in question has threatened to take Haas to court as well.
Chambers is seeking compensation for injuries, damages, costs and expenses related to the STD.
