Charlie Sheen went on The Today Show and made the confession, saying “I am in fact HIV-positive” and that he knew about his condition four years ago.
In the interview with Matt Lauer, Sheen said;
“I’m here to admit that I am in fact HIV-positive, And I have to put a stop to this onslaught, this barrage of attacks and of sub-truths and very harmful and mercurial stories that are about the (alleged) threatening the health of so many others, which couldn’t be farther from the truth.”
“It’s a hard three letters to absorb,” he said. “It’s a turning point in one’s life.”
He said he the diagnosis came after he suffered a series of migraines.
“After a battery of tests … they walked in the room and said, ‘Boom, here’s what’s going on,’ ” Sheen said.
He said he revealed the diagnosis to people he thought he trusted, but some of them demanded money to keep the information to themselves. He paid those people “in the millions,” he said.
“We’re talking about shakedowns,” he said. “I’ve paid those people — not that many.”
One of those people, he said was a prostitute who entered his bathroom, took a cellphone picture of his medication and threatened to sell the image to tabloids.
Asked if he would continue to pay the people he’d been paying, he said: “Not after today, I’m not.”
I’m sure a lot of people will be running to the doctor to get their check ups after hearing what Charlie Sheen has to say.
Hollywood hellion Charlie Sheen is HIV-positive and will reveal his status in a shock announcement on NBC’s “Today” show Tuesday morning.
Sheen, 50, will speak to NBC’s Matt Lauer live in studio to deliver his news, a source told the Daily News Monday.
In a separate report Monday, The National Enquirer said Sheen has been safeguarding his HIV status for years while living a high-profile life as a TV star, dating a conga line of adult entertainers and coining crazy catchphrases.
“Charlie thought he was indestructible and took no precautions — even though he was indulging in high-risk sex practices,” an unidentified friend reportedly told The Enquirer
In an interview with Oprah Winfrey – a show called Where Are The Now – former child star of the television hit show Who’s the Boss, Danny Pintauro, revealed that he has HIV.
“I’m HIV-positive,” Pintauro said. “And I have been for 12 years.”
Pintauro played Judith Light’s precocious son, Jonathan, on the popular Tony Danza sitcom “Who’s the Boss?” that aired from 1984 until 1992 on ABC.
Pintauro, 39, told Winfrey he wanted to share his health status “a long time ago,” but wasn’t ready. He said he decided to share it now to serve as a role model for the gay community.
“It’s just a big deal. It’s not something that people are talking about right now really,” he said.
He shared that he was diagnosed in March 2003 while living in New York. At the time he was “completely clueless” that he had the virus, he said.
Pintauro, who now lives in Las Vegas, explained that the diagnosis actually came with a sense of relief. “It’s backwards. You’ve spent so much time terrified that you’re going to get it, and then you have it. You don’t have to be terrified anymore.”
Pintauro came out as gay in 1997 after the National Enquirer told him it was planning to out him.
O.J Simpson is probably infected with HIV and he needs to get checked immediately. That warning came from the person who probably gave the disgraced NFL great the disease.
Her name is Jazmena Jameson. She is a former prostitute and a transsexual who was locked up at Lovelock Correctional Center, the same facility that houses O.J Simpson.
In a new interview with Radar Online, Jameson said she got to know the former NFL star – who has been in Lovelock since 2008 following a bungled Las Vegas robbery – while working as the lead porter for the laundry room and would deliver clothes to his cell every other day.
Describing herself as exceedingly flirtatious and the ‘closest thing to a woman’ in the prison, Jameson said she and Simspon would often ‘joke around and stuff’.
‘Finally one day he said, ”You have big t—ies. Are those implants or the hormone shots?”,’ Jameson told Radar.
‘And he wanted to see them – I don’t mind showing anyone, you know, so I ended up showing them to him.
‘He said, ”You better get up out of here!”.’
Nothing happened between them that day, Jameson maintained.
However when she was back in the cell about a month later, Jameson claimed she started to dance for Simpson, before making an advance.
‘I walked up on him and said, ”You can stop me if you want to”,’ she said.
‘I knew he wasn’t going to stop me.
‘I ended up having oral sex with him.’
Jameson told Radar that Simpson ejaculated on his own stomach.
She also told the website that she is HIV positive.
A Kenyan woman (pictured) who claims a man raped and infected her with HIV at a party recently admitted to sleeping with more than 300 men in revenge, the Kenyan Daily Post reports.
The woman, who remains anonymous, shared her story through her Facebook page “Kenyan Scandals.”
“I’m 19 and a 2nd year here at Kabarak Uni,” she said. “I joined this college a virgin; though I’ve had boyfriends before, my parents are strict so having sex was never on my mind.”
But that apparently changed late last year during a visit to a club.
“Sep 22nd 2013 is a day I’ll never forget. We went clubbing in town and got drunk with some senior students then went back [to] hostels for party round 2,” she continued. However, she woke up naked the next day to a man named Javan.
Upon asking if they’d used a condom for intercourse, Javan said yes. However, the woman soon noticed sperm near her vaginal area while taking a bath.
I wanted to commit suicide, she shared. I feared getting pregnant [and] HIV, took contras [and] hoped I was HIV-free. Unfortunately, that was not the case: In November I tested HIV [positive]. I felt like cutting off my neck.
She confronted Javan who claimed he was HIV-negative.
I was so depressed and took alcohol to die, I even bought poison, the pain was just unbearable; how was I [going to] face the world? I let my parents down, I gave up on the world and just wanted to end my life. My future had been ruined, somehow someone had to pay.
She reportedly began exacting revenge by sleeping with as many men as possible. To date, she claims, she has slept with 324 men.
Not a day passes without me having sex, mostly 4 people per day,” she stated. “Nothing will stop me from accomplishing my mission by continuing to sleep around, you never know but maybe you have slept with me or your husband, boyfriend, brother, father or any has slept with me.
The woman’s eventual plan is to infect 2,000 men with the virus before year’s end, according to XNaija.
One commenter on the Kenyan Daily Post says he has slept with the woman:
OMG! I know this lady! the commenter typed. I’ve done it with her more than thrice since Jan this year! Lady, you didn’t have to do this to me. Revenging on the wrong people is unfair. I’m confused.

A 69-year-old Catholic priest was arrested in a Cleveland park after offering a ranger $50 for a sexual act, police said.
James McGonegal exposed himself to an off-duty Metropark ranger last week and then proceeded to pleasure himself while seated in his SUV on park grounds, police reported.
Because he is HIV-positive, he was charged with a felony count of solicitation after testing positive for HIV, as well as public indecency.
He was a pastor at St. Ignatius of Antioch Church, according to several local reports.
He was released on bond.
He solicited an off-duty ranger wearing civilian and said he was “cruising,” police said. The ranger, who was not part of a sting operation, asked the man what he meant by that.
McGonegal said he needed help to “get off,” according to officers. Sex aides were found in his vehicle.
Then the priest showed the ranger his penis and began masturbating, police said.
He was arrested without incident.
David Lee Magnum
A Missouri man has been arrested and charged with “reckless exposure to HIV” after he admitted to having unprotected sex with up to 300 people without disclosing his HIV status, triggering alarm among health officials.
David Lee Mangum, 36, was arrested in Dexter, Mo., on Aug. 27 after his former live-in lover came forward to Dexter police to file a complaint that Mangum had knowingly infected him with HIV. The alleged victim, 28, identified in the complaint as D.B., said that he tested positive for HIV in July of this year, according to a probable cause affidavit filed in Stoddard County court by Det. Cory Mills.
Mangum was arraigned today, but did not enter a plea. A preliminary hearing was set for Sept. 26, a representative for Stoddard County court told ABCNews.com. Bond was set by Judge Stephen Mitchell at $250,000.
Mangum could face a life sentence if convicted. A public defender appointed to Mangum’s case did not immediately return calls placed by ABCNews.com.
