King Charlie Sheen has revealed that he is HIV Positive.
He’s not just sure, he’s HIV Positive. Sorry.
“I would like to admit that I am in fact HIV-positive. I have to put a stop to this onslaught, this barrage of attacks and of sub-truths and very harmful and mercurial stories that are about me, that threaten the health of so many others that couldn’t be further from the truth.”
The 50-year-old actor was apparently being blackmailed for millions and millions of dollars, which is why he made the announcement so publicly.
He doesn’t know how he contracted the virus, but has known for around four years…
“It started with what I thought was a series of crushing headaches. I thought I had a brain tumor. I thought it was over.”
King Sheen is being bombarded with lawsuits from women he has slept with over the years. He admits that he had unprotected sex with two partners since his diagnosis, but says that he let both of them know beforehand. And they still went ahead with it?
“I have a responsibility now to better myself and to help a lot of other people and hopefully with what we’re doing today others will come forward and say, thanks Charlie.”
Well, at least something positive is coming out of this.
