Charlie Sheen sat down with Matt Lauer on the Today Show this morning and admitted to the world that he is in fact, HIV Positive. Charlie says that he was diagnosed about 4 years ago. Charlie also continues to say that it would be “Impossible” that he knowingly or unknowingly infected any of his sexual partners. Charlie also said, “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 me, that threaten the health of so many others that couldn’t be further from the truth,”
Charlie wrote a letter to Matt Lauer before their interview and says that “The personal disbelief and karmic confusion, shame and anger led to a temporary yet abysmal decent into profound substance abuse and fathomless drinking.” Lauer then asked if this is what led to the breakdown a couple of years ago with the Tigerblood comments and saying Winning all the time. Charlie’s response was that he would like to say that was the reason, but, “That was a roid rage. But it did come on the heels of finding this out.”
No matter your thoughts on Charlie Sheen, we wish him the best in his recovery from this awful disease.
