Charlie Sheen To Reveal He Has HIV In “Today” Show Interview With Matt Lauer
Charlie Sheen will reveal he has HIV on Tuesday’s “Today,” Gossip Cop confirms.
Gossip Cop first learned Sheen was diagnosed as HIV-positive last month, and we were told by a source close to him that it was a “difficult” time. It was unclear, however, when he first learned of his condition. It was also unknown how he was currently faring with the disease.
But NBC announced on Monday that Sheen will open up in a sit-down interview with Matt Lauer. The segment will be broadcast live from the “Today” studio in Rockefeller Plaza on Tuesday’s edition. The network has not confirmed the topic of discussion except to say the actor “will make a revealing personal announcement.”
The news comes more than a year after Sheen and Brett Rossi called off their engagement. The “Two and a Half Men” star was previously wed to Brooke Mueller, with whom he has twin sons, and Denise Richards, with whom he has two daughters. Sheen also has an older daughter, Cassandra, and through her he became a grandfather in 2013.
A rep for Sheen did not immediately return a request for comment. Gossip Cop will have updates, and full coverage of Tuesday’s interview.
