King of the hell-raisers Charlie Sheen is currently causing an avalanche of headlines in Hollywood.

The actor has now revealed that he is HIV positive during an interview on the Today show on Tuesday. He said:

“I am here to admit that I am infact HIV positive and I have to put a stop to this onslaught of attacks and sub truths and very harmful stories that are threatening the health of so many others which couldn’t be further from the truth.

“I have told enough to be in the position that I am today.

“I was dig noised four years ago. it started with a series of headaches and migraines and eating the bed.

“I thought i had a brain tumour i thought it was over.

“After a load of tests they told me boom this is what foes on.

“It is hard three letters to consume. It is a turning point in my life.”

Speculation about a HIV positive celebrity has circulated around Hollywood during the last couple of weeks and the 50-year-old icon became a prime suspect, so the revelation comes as no huge surprise.

We’ve been long-time fans of Charlie because he’s a connoisseur of clams who’s dated thousands of women including a string of porn stars, but his lifestyle may have caught up with him.

On the plus side, he described the chances of having transmitted HIV to anyone since being diagnosed as “impossible”.
