Charlie Sheen admits he has had HIV for four years

Charlie SheenCharlie Sheen told Matt Lauer on the Today show this morning that he is HIV positive. He confirmed the news because he said he was being extorted for money and has paid up to $10 million for people to keep his condition a secret. “What people forget is that it’s money taken from my children,” he said. “I trusted them and they were deep in my inner circle, and I thought they could be helpful. My trust turned to their treason.”

Charlie has a daughter, Cassandra, 30, with ex-girlfriend Paula Profit, daughters Sam, 11, and Lola, 10, with ex-wife Denise Richards, and twins Bob and Max, six, with former spouse Brooke Mueller.

Charlie said he realized he was ill about four years ago, telling Matt: “It started with what I thought was a series of crushing headaches. I thought I had a brain tumor. I thought it was over.”

He also admitted during the interview that he has had unprotected sex with two women since being diagnosed with HIV, but claims he told them beforehand and they were willing partners despite his condition.

Meanwhile, his ex-girlfriend, porn star Bree Olson, tweeted about getting tested for HIV yesterday, saying she was waiting for the results. “Recorded myself for half an hour being tested for HIV and getting the results. This is so stressful,” she wrote, though she went on to say she does not have the virus.

However, lawyers are predicting that numerous of Charlie’s other sex partners will likely now come forward, demanding settlements, especially if any of them test positive.

    Regardless if he told any of the women before hand, he was still okay with not wearing protection? What a selfish idiot, were they even sober or clean to answer coherently? It’s still he’s duty to wear protection knowing you are HIV positive. And I don’t buy him caring about his kids, I remember reading an earlier article that he no longer wanted to pay child support to Denise Richards. What a piece of sh*t. But that’s just my opinion.

    Certainly those with addiction issues have a distorted view of events. Addicts are also skilled liars. He will be no different. I am sorry he has this health challenge, but the writing was on the wall given his lifestyle over the last several years. I think he will be parting with more of his money when the civil suits start.

    He was doing drugs, sleeping with hundreds of prostitutes and porn stars and now he has HIV. Is anyone surprised? You life a live like that, you deal with the consequences. I don’t feel sorry at all for this privileged, wealthy, piece of crap who only thinks of himself.
