List Rules Celebrities rumored or confirmed to have herpes

List of famous people with herpes, loosely ranked by fame and popularity. You might also be interested in the biggest celebrity manwhores in Hollywood. Herpes simplex is a viral disease that can occur either on the mouth or on the genitals. Herpes viruses have periods of activity in which blistering occurs for 2-21 days. Activity periods are followed by a remission period. Genital herpes can be asymptomatic, making it easy to pass along. There is currently no cure for herpes, but treatment can help to reduce the symptoms.

Who is the most famous person with herpes? Jessica Alba tops our list. Alba allegedly contracted the virus from MLB star Derek Jeter. A former assistant of Alba claims that the actress regularly had to refill a prescription for Valtrex after dating Jeter. Other beautiful actresses who allegedly contracted herpes from Derek Jeter include Jessica Biel, Scarlett Johansson, and Vanessa Minnillo.

Several celebs have actually been sued for allegedly giving their partners herpes. Robin Williams was sued for passing along the herpes virus, and he ended up settling out of court. Other famous people who were sued for passing along herpes include Michael Jackson, Kris Humphries, and Dennis Rodman.
