Roxx suing?

Porn Valley- It’s being reported that Lara Roxx is suing American producers for several million dollars. That story has not been confirmed, although Adultfyi reported last Friday, May 7, that Daniel Lighter, Roxx’s lawyer, was quoted as saying “there’s no question” there will be legal action in the U.S.

“What makes it difficult is determining who was behind the shoots and whether those people have the funds to make … a suit worthwhile,” Lighter said.

Lara Roxx was also featured last night on Entertainment Tonight. Here’s what was said:

You may not know the name LARA ROXX, but ever since the headline-catching HIV scares within the adult film industry came to light last month, you probably know her tragic story. The 21-year-old Canada native sits down with our own JANN CARL to talk candidly about how she got into the business, what her future holds, and how she first found out she was HIV-positive.

“I knew over the phone that I was HIV-positive,” she says of the phone call she got from SHARON MITCHELL of the Adult Industry Medical Health Care Foundation. “She was really upset, just like a mother.”

Roxx says things didn’t get any better when she finally made it to the office to get the test results. “I remember her showing me the paperwork. Usually it says ‘Not detected,’ but it said ‘Detected’ with a bright red crayon circled around it. I was freaking out and started shaking and was trying not to cry.”

She says it was Mitchell who calmed her down. “She was telling me how it would be alright and that it wasn’t what it was 15 years ago. That I could still walk and talk and live.”

The dark-haired Roxx was born in Montreal and raised in Quebec and says that growing up, her family “had great moments,” but most of her home life was not harmonious. And at 17 years old (with the help of a fake ID), she became a stripper and eventually turned to the X-rated world.

“I thought that $2,000 a day sounded attractive,” she admits. “I expected that I could go and sleep with whoever I wanted and I thought that the actresses ruled. I thought you could go in and say, ‘I will do this and this and this and I won’t do this and this and this,’ and they would say, ‘Okay, you’re hired!'”

It was on April 13 that Roxx’s world turned upside down. That was the day she found out she had contracted the virus from a fellow industry actor. And although the actors are required to be tested every 30 days, on April 20 a list of 51 actors and actresses who might have been exposed to HIV from her or the man she received it from was released, and a 60-day halt on all Los Angeles-based production was implemented. Roxx says that was exactly the right move.

“If they hadn’t, I would have tried to make them shut it down,” she says. “It’s good what they’ve done because it’s only normal. If they didn’t, they wouldn’t be moral. I think it would have been wrong if it wasn’t shut down.”

But she says the mass amount of interest is the most distressing to her. “The media attention was the most upsetting thing for me and my mom and all of my siblings,” she reveals. “I didn’t have time to tell them what happened to me and they saw it on TV.”

Although Roxx is keeping a positive attitude, she does admit it’s scary to think about, especially when it comes to wanting to start a family one day. “I just thought, ‘What about my future husband, my future kids and my future dog?'” She says, recalling the day she found out. “‘Where’s that going? Straight down the toilet!'”

The strong-spirited Roxx says that she is an artist at heart and is hoping to move on to mainstream acting and possibly an album. And she says this heartbreaking situation has actually taught her some useful life lessons.

“I learned a lot of things,” she says. “I now understand the things that people tried to tell me earlier in my life. Like, ‘You have to understand how fragile life really is and how dangerous it can be.'”
