Sad news today as Charlie Sheen confirms he is indeed HIV positive.
This morning Charlie Sheen told NBC’s “Today Show” that he was diagnosed as HIV-positive about four years ago. Only the few people who knew about it had demanded money from him to keep the secret.
“I’m here to admit that I am in fact HIV-positive,” Sheen told NBC’s Matt Lauer. “And 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 the (alleged) threatening the health of so many others, which couldn’t be farther from the truth.”
“It’s a hard three letters to absorb,” he said. “It’s a turning point in one’s life.”
Charlie Sheen is 50 and is one of Hollywood’s best-known actors. We wish him well and hope that he stays strong and does his best to fight the disease.
