Just when you though Charlie Sheen was out of surprises, he reportedly beat HIV. According to TMZ, Charlie’s been taking medicine and the virus is now undetectable in his blood. It’s rumored he will open up about the diagnosis on the Today show tomorrow.
A source told People, “The interview could open up a lot of sympathy for him, but he has to be concerned about a fear of litigation from former sexual partners. You don’t take that lightly.”
Original story resumes below:
Actor Charlie Sheen reportedly has HIV and is set to make the “revealing personal announcement” on the Today show, Tuesday.
RadarOnline published a blind item earlier this month about a famous actor who was “hiding” he had been diagnosed with HIV after “decades of debauchery.” The profile perfectly fit Charlie Sheen, who has a history of wild drug usage and sexual romps with porn stars. According to the article, the “middle-aged” star was diagnosed two years ago.
According to the National Enquirer, at least four women have alleged that the actor exposed them to the virus.
“Charlie had sex with multiple partners since learning his HIV status without informing them of his potentially deadly HIV infection,” the U.K. Mirror quotes a source as telling the Enquirer.
The Mirror reports that Charlie paid one woman nearly $20K to keep her silence after she snapped photos of his medicine.
According to reports, his ex-wife Brooke Mueller is among those terrified that she contracted the virus from the star
From the Mirror:
“I had a drug induced psychotic break at Charlie’s after doing drugs with Charlie for that many days,” she reportedly wrote in a text message.
“I couldn’t handle the HIV news. Just 6 months ago I was diagnosed with the eye disease and then Charlie potentially giving me HIV…”
Hollywood “crisis manager” Howard Bragman told PEOPLE magazine that he was approached months ago by Sheen’s camp to deal with the crisis. He tells the mag that the decision to go public will no doubt garner sympathy for the star, but won’t absolve him of putting so many people at risk with his dangerous sexual behavior.
“The interview could open up a lot of sympathy for him,” Bragman said. “But he has to be concerned about a fear of litigation from former sexual partners. You don’t take that lightly.”
The Hollywood Reporter says Sheen declined to confirm rumors. Guess we’ll find out tomorrow…
