Charlie Sheen has revealed he stopped taking his HIV meds

Charlie Sheen has revealed he is HIV positive today (17 November).

The 50-year-old Two And A Half Men actor, in an interview with The Today Show, came out as one of the most high profile names to ever reveal their status.

‘I am here to admit that I am in fact HIV positive,’ the 50-year-old actor said.

‘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,’ he said. ‘[It] couldn’t be farther from the truth.’

Sheen said he was diagnosed roughly four years ago, but did not say how he contracted HIV.

‘It’s a hard three letters to absorb. It’s a turning point in one’s life.’

He revealed he has paid out ‘millions’ to people who blackmailed him over revealing his status, and is hoping to be a voice for change.
