“I am here to admit that I am in fact HIV positive”…are the words actor Charlie Sheen used in an interview with Matt Lauer on NBC’s Today show. There has been plenty of speculation recently over which Hollywood actor was HIV positive, but Sheen ended the rumours earlier saying he ‘made the announcement to end a smear campaign and extortion efforts’.
“Sheen said he was diagnosed roughly four years ago but doesn’t know how he contracted the virus.
“It started with what I thought was a series of crushing headaches,” he said. “I thought I had a brain tumor. I thought it was over.”
He also insisted it was “impossible” that he knowingly transmitted the virus to others.” [TODAY]
