Charlie Sheen has confirmed in a very recent US interview that he is indeed HIV positive.
His admittance was short and to the point: “I am here to admit that I am HIV positive.”
This now brings to a close several days of very intense media speculation surrounding the actor’s HIV status. Charlie also revealed to Matt Lauer that he has paid a huge amount of money, “enough to take it into the millions” to stop people from going public with this information.
“I have to put a stop to this onslaught this barrage of attacks and of sub truths.” He said, further adding that he was diagnosed four years ago.
Sadly, when he revealed that he was HIV positive to his ‘friends’, “the truth became treason”, leading to what he called a “blackmail and extortion and a circle of deceit”.
“I trusted them, they were in my inner circle and thought they could be helpful. My trust turned to their treason. I think I release myself from this prison today.”
Some of you may be wondering what lead to this diagnosis, and when discussing this, Charlie said: “It started with a series of cluster headaches and sweating – I was hospitalised I thought I had a brain tumour – after tests they said this was the situation. It’s a hard three letters to absorb.”
His Doctor, Dr Huizenga, responded to rumours that Charlie has AIDS: “Charlie does not have AIDS – that’s when the virus suppresses the immune system. He is healthy.”
Dr Huizenga also confirmed that “Charlie has an undetectable level of the virus in his blood.”
We wish Charlie the best of luck, and hope he has gotten rid of these so-called ‘friends’ from his life.
