Pop Star Knowingly Infected Partners with HIV
You may have never heard of the group No Angels, but the all girl band won a Popstars competition in Germany in 2000. The band broke up in 2003 but reformed in 2007 to represent Germany at the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest with their single "Disappear".
Anyway, band member Nadja Benaissa, who had HIV and knew it, knowingly exposed several sexual partners with the disease and it has since been confirmed that at least one of her lovers is infected.
Nadja Benaissa, a single mom of one, was arrested in Frankfurt on Saturday, April 11, 2009, right before she was about to do a solo performance. She was kept in custody after a judge ruled that she might repeat her alleged offense.
If found guilty Nadja Benaissa faces up to 10 years in prison.
