Charlie Sheen’s HIV positive status is front-and-center once again as the actor is available on the “Today” show Tuesday, ahead of the release of an expose-style documentary that will focus on the actor’s sexual history.
Sheen acknowledged on Tuesday that he didnt always disclose his HIV positive status to his sexual partners, but he insisted he utilized condoms in those cases. His ex-fiancee, however, claims the opposite.
The Anger Management star told Matt Lauer there were two times when he did not tell partners he was HIV positive.
There[ were] two examples, but protection was always in place, and it was for the right reasons, because everyone that I had told up to that moment had shaken me down.
Sheen’s ex-fiancee Brett Rossi, however, claimed to us Sheen had unprotected sex with her and did not disclose his HIV positive status, contradicting the actor’s claims to Lauer.
A rep for Rossi told FOX4 11, “Charlie’s story is just that, a story, told by a talented actor to convince people that he is a victim. Regrettably, it’s only absolutely no truth to the rumors and he created a lot of potential victims.
Regardless of Sheens reasoning for not disclosing his diagnosis, California law says that once a person knows “they il be” HIV positive it is necessary to alert a sexual partner before engaging in sex activity, otherwise they could be charged with a misdemeanor.
California Health and Safety Code SS 120290 nations, Any person afflicted with any contagious, infectious, or communicable illnes who willfully uncovers him/ herself to another person( and any person who willfully exposes another person affected with the disease to someone else) is guilty of a misdemeanor.
Sheen admitted to Lauer he did not use a condom several times after his diagnosis, but maintained the women who he had unprotected sex with knew about his diagnosis.
I regret not using a condom one or two times when this whole thing happened, he told Lauer.
Meanwhile, the National Enquirer has teamed up with Reelz Channel for a documentary series called National Enquirer Investigates, which will focus on Sheen. Sheen may have sat down with Lauer to get ahead of the accusations the documentary could spark.
Dylan Howard, executive producer of National Enquirer Investigates, told FOX4 11 via email the special will include an audio recording of Sheen admitting that he did not tell an unidentified female he was HIV positive.
Howard asserts, When calling into question this individual[ about why he did not tell her he was HIV positive ], Mr. Sheen is heard screaming, Because its none of your f–king business, OK?
Sheen listed his life regret to Lauer.
I regret ruining Two and a Half Men. I regret not being more involved in my childrens lives growing up, which I am now. But thats about it. We can only move forward from today.
Sheen has recently been doing press, promoting a brand of condoms.
