According to a major US website, CHARLIE Sheen is the Hollywood actor diagnosed with HIV.
The star will speak to America’s Today program about his condition this morning, but U.S. website Radar revealed his identity prior to his appearance.
Speculation increased Sheen was due to be dubbed the mysterious Holywood star living with the disease by a US magazine this week.
But the producers of the breakfast show Today went on Twitter to announce that they would be interviewing the actor.
The news of the interview prompted RadarOnline and its sister magazine National Enquirer to name the actor today.
The website states: “After an extensive 18 month long investigation, the ENQUIRER reveals that the sex-mad 50-year-old actor, who has long slept with porn stars, strippers and groupies of both sexes, is now desperate for cover for his medical crisis, and it cost him millions.
It went on, quoting a close friend of the star’s saying, “Charlie thought he was indestructible and took no precautions – despite indulging in high-risk sex practices.”
Sheen, who boasts of sleeping with more than 5,000 women, is said to have confessed his illness to nearly a dozen sources.
The National Enquirer claimed at least four women claimed the actor exposed them to the virus.
It was reported last week, before his identity was revealed, that he had spent millions paying for people’s silence, including a girl he was paying £ 13,000 a month to.
“Charlie has had sex with multiple partners since he found out his HIV status without informing them of his potentially fatal HIV infection,” a source reportedly told the magazine.
