Charlie Sheen Confirms He's HIV Positive on 'Today' Show - Watch Now

Charlie Sheen just sat down for an interview with Matt Lauer on the Today show on Tuesday (November 17) to confirm he has HIV.

“I am here to admit that I am in fact HIV positive. I have to put a stop to this barrage of attacks and sub-truths and very harmful and mercurial stories that are about me that threaten the health of so many others. [It] couldn’t be farther from the truth,” the 50-year-old actor said. “I have a responsibility now to better myself and to help a lot of other people, and hopefully with what we’re doing today, others may come forward sand say, ‘Thanks, Charlie. Thanks for kicking the door open.’”

Charlie discussed how he’d known about his diagnosis for about four years after suffering headaches and sweating. [I was diagnosed] based on this series of cluster headaches and insane migraines and sweating the bed, completely drenched two, three nights in a row, that I was emergency hospitalized. I thought I had a brain tumor. I thought it was over. After a battery of tests and spinal taps, all that crap, they walked in the room and said, ‘Boom. Here’s what’s going on.’ It’s a hard three letters to absorb. It’s a turning point in one’s life.”

Charlie also admitted he’s paid “into the millions” to keep people quiet.

“Not after today, I’m not… I think I release myself from this prison today,” Charlie added.

When asked if he’s transmitted the disease to anyone, he replied, “Impossible.”

Charlie Sheen's Ex Natalie Kenly Defends Him: 'He is Not a Monster'

Charlie Sheen‘s ex-girlfriend Natalie Kenly, known as a member of his “goddess” posse, is coming to his defense in the wake of the actor’s HIV diagnosis.

The 29-year-old says that she does not think Charlie was recklessly promiscuous.

“He is not a monster,” Natalie told People. “He has regard for human beings and cares about people. I do not see him knowingly putting women at risk.”

The news that Charlie is HIV positive has been met by critics who are slamming him for having sexual relationships with women after he was diagnosed.

“That’s not who he is,” Natalie said. “He’s got young kids. He’s also not an idiot and I don’t see him opening himself up to that legal nightmare.”

“He’s a good man and I feel very fortunate to have spent the time with him that I did, and I’m so sad to hear of his health troubles,” Natalie added. “I hope he’s okay.”

Bree Olson, who was one of the other goddesses, has also spoken out about the news.

Charlie Sheen's HIV is Undetectable - What Does That Mean?

Charlie Sheen is going to reveal tomorrow that he is HIV positive, but something important to note is that his HIV has been undetectable.

The 50-year-old actor has reportedly known that he is HIV positive for more than two years, according to TMZ. He has been taking meds to keep the virus under control and over time, it has become undetectable.

So, what exactly does that mean? An HIV positive person can undergo antiretroviral therapy (ART) to achieve undetectable levels. Once the person successfully goes through the treatment, he or she can reduce the likelihood of transmitting the virus to another person by 96 percent. The person can stay at this level if they keep up with the ART meds.

Being undetectable does not mean that a person has cured themselves of the virus though. It also does not mean that there is a 100 percent chance of protecting your partner from the virus.

Charlie allegedly feels that he did no wrong by not informing sexual partners of his HIV status because he was undetectable, but doctors believe anyone with HIV should be open with their partners about it. His ex-girlfriend Bree Olson has already denied that she has the virus.

Charlie Sheen's Ex Bree Olson Denies She Contracted HIV From Him
