Charlie Sheen has admitted to being the A-list actor infected with HIV …

Hollywood was thrown into a giant pit of fear last week when rumours started surfacing about a certain A-list actor being HIV positive. No names were mentioned but speculation was rife that the actor in question was indeed Charlie Sheen.

The rumours are true – confirmed by Charlie himself a few moments ago on the Today show

He’s been aware of his status for years  – he contracted the virus four years ago.

Charlie Sheen is known for his wild and reckless lifestyle; he once boasted that he’s slept with 5 000 women. More than a few of these women were paid for their ‘services’, while others were well-known actresses (some in the adult entertainment business).

Regardless, I can’t help but feel sorry for him.

Here’s what he has to say: 

Sheen confirmed that people 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.”

Sheen admitted, “I was so depressed by the condition I was in that I was doing a lot of drugs, I was drinking too much and I was making bad decisions.”

Though Sheen said it’s “impossible” that he’s transmitted HIV, either knowingly or unknowingly, to a sexual partner, he did admit to having unprotected sex with two individuals who were “completely warned ahead of time” and under the care of his physician.

Let’s take a look at a few of the women Charlie has had relationships with over the years …
