Now, apparently, he’ll be sitting down with Matt Lauer on the Today Show tomorrow, Tuesday, to make a “personal announcement” where he’ll likely be telling the world he has HIV.
The Enquirer issue with him on the cover hits stands Wednesday, November 18. They say the story is “the culmination of a dogged 18-month investigation that has uncovered how television’s one-time highest paid star potentially spread the devastating virus to dozens of unsuspecting women.” And they say that Sheen is on a regimen of HIV medications, but it’s unclear how long he’s been on them.
Also, surprise! It sounds like people in Hollywood have been holding onto this open secret for a while — a Sony Pictures exec referenced Sheen’s HIV status in one of the leaked Sony emails.
Among the women he may have exposed to the virus, as Radar reports, is porn star Scottine Ross, a.k.a. Brett Rossi, who broke off an eight-month engagement with Sheen last fall, and he notably let her keep the $100,000 engagement ring — probably as a “sorry I might have given you HIV” gift.
Sheen’s ex-wife Brooke Mueller has also been dramatic about it, saying, “I had a drug-induced psychotic break at Charlie’s after doing drugs with Charlie for that many days. I couldn’t handle the HIV news. Just 6 months ago I was diagnosed with the eye disease and then Charlie potentially giving me HIV…” And I don’t know what this eye disease is.
So yeah, Sheen. I was just thrown off by all the talk of the mystery man in the blind item being an A-list celebrity, and a megastar, which Sheen is not and basically has never been though he acting career did see better days back around Platoon.
Will Sheen be telling Matt Lauer about sleeping with transgender prostitutes and exposing multiple women to the virus? We’ll see…
