German pop star Nadja Benaissa admits hiding HIV virus

Nadja Benaissa, one of Germany’s biggest pop stars, has admitted that she had sexual relationships with several men without telling them that she carries HIV virus, according to Daily News.

Benaissa of the best-selling girl group No Angels, told a German court on Monday that she knowingly exposed multiple men to the HIV virus without telling them she was a carrier.

Benaissa, 28, is on trial this week, accused of "grievous bodily harm and attempted aggravated assult," British newspaper The Guardian reports.

The singer allegedly hid her illness from three men she had sex with between 2000 and 2004, one of whom later became infected with the HIV virus.

The 34-year-old man says he and Benaissa had unprotected sex multiple times, and that her aunt ultimately told him the singer was HIV positive, causing him to get himself tested.

"You have unleashed a lot of misery into the world," the man said to Benaissa in the courtroom Monday.

Benaissa tested positive for the virus when she was 17, but kept it a secret from her sexual partners because she didn't think it was likely that she would infect them.
