Troubled Hollywood star Charlie Sheen revealed Tuesday morning that he is HIV positive.

Charlie Sheen: I have HIV

“I’m here to admit that I am, in fact, HIV positive! I have to put a stop to this onslaught, this barrage of attacks of sub-truths and very harmful and mercurial stories threatening the health of so many others.” – Charlie Sheen

Hollywood’s favorite bad boy Charlie Sheen, known for his hard living and relationships with former porn stars, confirmed to Matt Lauer on the Today Show yesterday morning on November 17, 2015, that he has been living with HIV for four years. To my assessment, his confession wasn’t as shocking as when NBA legend “Magic” Johnson announced to the world he obtained HIV back in 1991, but Charlie Sheen instantly became a popular trend on social media outlets such as Facebook and Twitter.

Charlie Sheen recalled how he first became diagnosed with HIV, “It started with … this series of crushing headaches and insane migraines and sweating the bed, completely drenched two or three nights in a row, that I was emergency hospitalized. I thought I had a brain tumor, I thought it was over. After a battery of tests and spinal taps — all of that crap — they walked in the room and said, ‘Boom, here’s what’s going on.' It’s a hard three letters to absorb. It’s a turning point in one’s life.”

Charlie Sheen also told Matt Lauer that he revealed his HIV status to his family and people in his inner circle. However, several of his sexual partners have been extorting him after learning of his condition. When asked if he’s been paying these people, he responded, “Not after today I’m not. That’s my goal. That’s not my only goal, but I think I released myself from this prison today.” Though Sheen doesn’t know exactly how much money has been taken from him, he estimated that it’s “enough to bring it into the millions.” He added, “What people forget is that it’s money taken from my children,” Off-camera, he confirmed to Matt Lauer that it has been more than $10 million.

Charlie Sheen also said it was impossible that he transmitted the HIV virus to anyone since his diagnosed and that he always led with condoms and honesty. His former live-in girlfriend, Bree Olson, a former porn star, told Inside Edition that he never informed her of his HIV status.

“Never said anything. Ever. ‘I’m clean,’ he told me. ‘I’m clean, I’m clean,’”

In California, it is against the law for a person to willfully expose the human immunodeficiency virus. The crime is punishable by up to eight years in prison.

According to TMZ, six sexual partners are lining up to sue Charlie Sheen for allegedly exposing them to HIV.
