Robert Herjavec recently sued his ex-girlfriend, Danielle Vasinova, for extortion.

The 55-year-old “Shark Tank” star claimed that Vasinova, who he dated from 2013 to 2015, is trying to extort him in the wake of Harvey Weinstein’s sexual scandal. Herjavec also claimed that Vasinova became very upset when he broke up with her that she threatened to expose that he gave her herpes when he didn’t.

According to TMZ, Vasinova demanded $20 million from her ex-boyfriend in exchange for her silence. She later on reduced her demand to just $5 million, but Herjavec refused to pay up. Since then, the “Dancing With the Stars” alum never heard from Vasinova again.

But on Monday, he received a letter from her attorney that said Vasinova will be igniting her assault claims. “She bears full awareness that the problems plaguing Hollywood are far bigger than she is, and she appreciates fully that her willingness to come forward now will not only be cathartic for her but will go far in serving the interests of other women and men who have not yet found their voices,” the letter read in part.

According to US Weekly, Herjavec is also suing his ex-girlfriend for causing him emotional distress and public disclosure of private information. The wife of Kym Johnson also claimed that Vasinova gave paid interviews to tabloids and disclosed personal information about him. His ex-girlfriend also released a photo of Herjavec at a sexual fantasy club without his knowledge.

Since Herjavec doesn’t need the money, he is also requesting for $1 in damages, but would like Vasinova to be prevented from continuing her extortion attempts.

Meanwhile, Herjavec and his wife, Johnson, are very happy with each other. In May, they talked about their first wedding anniversary plans. The two planned to go to Greece for their July anniversary. Johnson is also grateful to be with Herjavec and said that she feels they’ve known each other for a long time.

“Yeah, it doesn’t feel like newlywed. It feels great. It feels like we’ve known each other for a long time,” he seconded to Entertainment Tonight.
