Charlie Sheen Says He’s HIV Positive, Admits To Paying Millions In Blackmail Hush Money

After much speculation, Charlie Sheen has confirmed reports that he is, in fact, HIV positive.

The former Two and a Half Men star appeared on the Today Show to “put an end to the barrage of attacks” that he’s seen in tabloids and other media outlets.

“It’s a hard three letters to absorb,” he said, adding that his diagnosis four years ago was a “turning point” in his life.

He also told Matt Lauer that he’s paid millions of dollars over the last few years to blackmailers who’ve threatened to reveal his status, saying “that’s money they’re taking from my children.”

“I always led with condoms and honesty when it came to my condition,” he added.tweet1tweet2tweet3

Sheen has stayed largely out of the press since his FX show Anger Management was canceled last year.

His dismissal from Two and a Half Men in 2011 for repeatedly disrupting production due to drug and alcohol abuse infamously played out in the press alongside his falling-out with the show’s creator, Chuck Lorre.
