Famous actor Charlie Sheen made a very shocking revelation. The popular actor revealed that his is HIV positive. The star made the statement during an interview on the Today show. Immediately after making this revelation, Sheen said that it actually is impossible to have infected others with the virus.
“I’m here to admit that I am in fact HIV positive. And, I have to put a stop to this onslaught, this barrage of attacks, of sub-truths, and very harmful stories that are about threatening the health of so many others, which couldn’t be farther from the truth,” Sheen stated.
The actor also said during his interview that he has no idea how he contracted this virus. Without a doubt, the star managed to shock everyone with his unexpected statement. Furthermore, Sheen said that he had been dealing with this health problem for quite some time. Sheen revealed that he was first diagnosed about four years ago. The star explained that he wanted to keep everything private, sometimes this even meaning that he had to pay to keep the silence.
Sheen shared such a story involving a prostitute, which the star said he had to pay, after she took a photo of his medication and threatened to sell it. Sheen said that he always warned the people he had sex with that he was HIV positive. And he explained that he only had unprotected sex with two people since he found out and both were “completely warned.”
When it comes to how he found out that he was suffering from this health problem, Sheen said that he knew that something was wrong when he started dealing with “insane migraines and sweating in bed.” The actor revealed that he first thought that he was suffering from brain tumor.
“It had started with what I thought was based on this series of cluster headaches and migraines and sweating the bed. … I thought I had a brain tumor. After a battery of tests … they walked in the room and said, ‘Here’s what’s going on.’ It’s a hard three letters to absorb. It’s a turning point in one’s life,” the actor explained.
Well, although the actor said that all his partners knew, some of the women that Sheen has been involved with seemed to be quite shocked with his statements.
