'Hellraiser' Author Clive Barker Victorious in Cousin Sex HIV Lawsuit

'HELLRAISER' AUTHOR Victorious in Cousin Sex HIV Lawsuit

2 Hours Ago


"Hellraiser" and "Candyman" author Clive Barker just scored a big victory in court over his ex-BF -- who accused Barker of having sex with his own HIV-positive cousin before passing the virus on to him -- because his ex's lawsuit has been tossed out of court ... forever.

TMZ broke the story ... Barker's ex-boyfriend Emilian David Armstrong sued the writer in June, claiming Barker gave him HIV in 1996 ... then kicked him out on the street, leaving him destitute.

The lawsuit is crazy -- with allegations of cousin sex, AIDS, S&M, and drug-fueled parties -- but the judge ruled the case was baseless and should not go forward.

The case had previously been thrown out, but the judge gave Armstrong the chance to rework his lawsuit with new evidence. Armstrong never followed through ... so the dismissal is now permanent.

He should write a book with all the juicy details.

Cousin sex? Are we talking about Clive's cousin or the BF's?

Clive's cousin.

The first time TMZ reported this story it was full of juicy bits.

Apparently, Clive had parties of young male hopeful and actors at his home that he shared with his BF.

I thought it was interesting, because Henry Cavill starred in one of his movies, Hellraiser IV, I think.

Is Clive Barker for sure HIV+?

Speaking of his films, Clive Barker got a great performance out of David Cronenberg as a psychopathic psychiatrist. Though I haven't seen the film for years and hopefully aren't remembering it too fondly.

Clive is a friend of the Beekmans. Make of that what you will...
