Is it defamation to write in an email that someone is gay, doing drugs, has a veneral disease, cheats, hates women and has physically assaulted a few in the past when all of this is true?

His girlfriend and numerous others say he's gay.
We've all seen him snort cocaine many times, including 5+ in one sitting.
His old girlfriend said he gave her warts and even his current girlfriend confirmed this.
Witnesses have seen him cheat.
He always degrades women and has beaten a few women up in the past including his family members.

Now he's threatening a defamation suit after a few of us have discussed his above problems. How could he possibly prove any of the above are false when we've all seen or have heard (such as the VD from the girlfriend) and can prove it to be true.
Thank you.

Truth is an absolute defense to any defamation suit. One minor point, how can you prove he is gay if he's been sleeping with a couple women giving them warts?


Looks like he might have one for the gay comments, I guess it should've been bi-sexual.

What's sad is his girlfriend is now taking his side and being the cheerleader. She has stated to many people he's gay and he asks her to give him anal sex. What side of the table will she be on at trial? Wouldn't she be our witnesss? Thank you.


I think he's trying to get money for embarassment or humiliation since the emails were forwarded to the girlfriend's family. The girlfriend forwarded them to his family about two months ago and someone in turn forwarded the emails to her family. Unless he provided his medical records, wouldn't he be able to sue for damages on the comments of his VD? Again, he'd have to sue his own girlfriend I would think.
