LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader who also works as a school teacher in northern Kentucky is suing a gossip Web site for libel over a posting that she says falsely claims she was exposed to two venereal diseases.
The woman, identified in court records as "Jane Doe," said the posting on the Web site Thedirty.com is libelous and was posted online to hurt her reputation. The Web site doesn't use her full name but mentions both her jobs.
The Dec. 7 posting under the headline "Dirty Bengals Cheerleader" claims the woman's ex-boyfriend cheated on her with more than 50 women, contracted two sexually transmitted diseases and likely passed them on to her.
Two e-mail messages sent Monday to the Web site seeking comment were not immediately returned.
