German pop star Nadja Benaissa has risked further scandal by suggesting a former lover who she infected with HIV is responsible for catching the virus.
In August (10), the No Angels star was handed a two-year suspended sentence after she was convicted of transmitting HIV to an ex-partner.
During her trial in Darmstadt, Germany, she apologised for her actions, telling the court, "I am sorry from the bottom of my heart. I would love to turn back the clock, but I can't."
But during an appearance on German talk show Beckhmann on Monday (04Oct10), Benaissa prompted outrage by suggesting the unnamed man should share the blame for catching the virus.

German pop star Nadja Benaissa has been handed a two-year suspended sentence after she was convicted of infecting a former partner with HIV.
The No Angels star was found guilty of causing bodily harm to one man, who caught the deadly virus after she failed to tell him about her condition during a brief romance in 2004. She was also convicted of two charges of attempted bodily harm relating to other partners.
During the trial at a court in Darmstadt, Germany, the singer apologised for her actions, saying, "I am sorry from the bottom of my heart. I would love to turn back the clock, but I can't."
The court took into consideration her remorse and she escaped a jail term on Thursday (26Aug10) when she was handed a two-year suspended sentence and ordered to complete 300 hours of community service.

German pop star Nadja Benaissa wept on Monday (16Aug10) as she admitted deliberately keeping her HIV infection a secret from three lovers.
The No Angels singer is accused of having unprotected sex with the men without warning them she had caught the deadly virus. One of them was allegedly infected by Benaissa.
She was arrested in April last year (09) and spent 10 days behind bars before being released. She was later charged with aggravated assault, and attended a court in Darmstadt, near Frankfurt on Monday to stand trial.
As Benaissa wept in the courtroom, the judge heard a written statement from the singer in which she admitted sleeping with the men without telling them she was infected - because she wanted to protect her career with the girlband.

German pop star Nadja Benaissa has been formally charged with causing bodily harm after allegedly failing to tell her lovers she was HIV positive.

The 27 year old spent 10 days in jail following her arrest in Frankfurt last April (09) but was released after her lawyers argued she should "enjoy the presumption of innocence" as there was no proof she had passed the virus on to any of the men.
However, one of Benaissa's former sexual partners has now tested positive for HIV, prompting police to file charges against her.
