Playboy and actor Charlie Sheen will reportedly announce he’s been diagnosed with HIV, one day before a tabloid exposé was scheduled to drop.
Sheen's upcoming appearance on the TODAY show in the USA has been billed as a “revealing personal announcement” although the network (NBC) has not clarified what that announcement is about.
“Charlie Sheen will reveal to the world that he’s HIV positive. Sources connected to NBC’s ‘Today’ tell TMZ ... Sheen will sit down with Matt Lauer on Tuesday morning to make the announcement,” TMZ reports.
His TODAY show appearance seems to be a last ditch attempt to be the National Enquirer who are planning on publishing an article accusing Sheen of contracting the virus before spreading it to dozens of women in a “multi-million dollar cover-up.”
"It’s the culmination of a dogged 18-month investigation that has uncovered how television’s one-time highest paid star potentially spread the devastating virus to dozens of unsuspecting women.
Sheen, 50, has allegedly already begun a regimen of medication meant to counteract the effects of the disease.
