Bree Olson Charlie Never Told Me About HIV

11/17/2015 6:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

Charlie Sheen is flat out lying about telling all his partners he's HIV positive ... according to Bree Olson, who is blasting him for keeping her in the dark.

Bree was on "The Howard Stern Show" and almost in tears as she reacted to Sheen's revelation, and his claim that he'd been above board with everyone. You've gotta hear her lose it ... Bree, an ex-porn star, says she was absolutely with Charlie when he was having "night sweats" and first diagnosed.

Aside from concealing the truth from her, she also claims she and Charlie had unprotected sex, and when it was protected ... he insisted on using lambskin condoms, which offer less protection from STDs.

Listen ... Bree is livid. She says all her tests have been negative, but she's pissed her name will forever be linked to HIV because of Sheen.

If what she says is true, she'd have reason to sue or even press criminal charges.

breaking news

Charlie Sheen said it directly, "I'm here to admit I'm in fact HIV positive" -- and defiantly stated he would no longer fork over millions of dollars to buy silence from friends and sexual partners.

Sheen spoke calmly about his diagnosis with Matt Lauer on "Today"... saying he needed to "put a stop to this onslaught of attacks and untruths." He said he's known for roughly 4 years that he is HIV positive, and had "told enough people that I've trusted to be in the position that I'm in today."

TMZ broke the story ... Charlie says he was betrayed by people he trusted with knowledge of his diagnosis, but they ended up revealing it. Lauer asked if Sheen was still paying people, and he said ... "Not after today I'm not! I release myself from this prison today."

He also talked about the moment he found out about the diagnosis, saying he initially thought he had a brain tumor. As for infecting others ... Sheen said he's warned all of his sexual partners ahead of time -- and there were only 2 with whom he'd had unprotected sex, but they "were under the care of my doctor."

As we've reported ... our sources say Charlie has paid several settlements to sexual partners who said they were NOT warned ahead of time. 

Sheen says he doesn't know how he contracted the virus, but feels he has "a responsibility now to better myself and to help a lot of other people."

Charlie Sheen My Blood is Now HIV Free

11/16/2015 2:42 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Charlie Sheen has had HIV for years ... but his position now is that he beat the disease because it's undetectable in his system ... TMZ has learned.

Our sources say Charlie has known for more than 2 years that he was HIV positive ... and one source says he's known way longer than that. We're told Charlie was taking meds for the HIV and has had a series of blood tests, and over time, the virus has been "undetectable" in his system.

We're told Charlie freely admits he's had scores of sexual partners over the years, many of whom had intimate relations with him after his diagnosis. The implication here is clear ... Charlie is saying he didn't deceive anyone, since the blood tests did not reveal the presence of HIV. 

Doctors beg to differ and say once someone has HIV they have it for life, at least until medicine advances.

As we reported, Charlie will discuss his HIV status Tuesday on "Today."


Charlie Sheen Threats of Lawsuits Unraveled HIV Secret

11/16/2015 11:06 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1116-sheen-tmz-01Charlie Sheen kept his HIV status under wraps, but everything unraveled when some former partners threatened him with lawsuits ... TMZ has learned.

As we reported, Charlie will appear on "Today" and reveal he's HIV positive. We're told he's known about his status for more than a year and he kept a lid on the information.

We're told things changed when Charlie confided in several friends he thought were confidants ... it turned out they weren't, and spread the word he was HIV positive.

That led to several of Charlie's former partners contacting him and threatening a lawsuit because they were unaware of his status when they had interaction with him. Our sources say Charlie settled several of the cases and, in return for money, got confidentiality agreements.

We're told one of the settlements occurred late last month.

We also know when people go to Charlie's house they are almost always required to sign confidentiality agreements which require anyone who might make a claim to do so in arbitration and not through the courts ... which thereby keeps things private.

She told Ryan, "There are times I’m sure he was very uncomfortable with things. But I’m glad he’s been so supportive to me."

Khloe also gave an update on Lamar's health, and as we first reported ... it's not great at this point. Interestingly, she didn't say anything about the current status of their relationship -- but we know there's no talk of refiling divorce docs.

Exclusive Details

1111-gerald-green-heat-GETTY-01Gerald Green allegedly punched a security guard in the eye during his rampage at a Miami condo complex before being restrained and sent to a local hospital ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

According to the police report obtained by TMZ Sports, Green showed up at the front desk of his condo with bloody hands. He allegedly asked the clerk to call an ambulance before walking out to the valet area where he collapsed. 

Green then got back up, walked inside and when a male security guard tried stopping him from getting back into his condo, he punched the guy in the face.

For the record, officials tell us there was "no evidence to support the punch"  ... meaning the alleged victim had no visible injuries and there was no footage available to back up the claim. 

Cops say the security guard did NOT want to press charges at the time. However, it doesn't mean the person won't pursue a lawsuit against Green at a later time. 

According to the report, Green was "very loud and verbally combative." As we previously reported, witnesses say he was screaming in the lobby. Green was eventually restrained, placed in handcuffs and taken to the hospital.

On Tuesday, the Miami Heat announced a 2 game suspension for Green due to conduct that was detrimental to the team.
