Charlie Sheen Bree Olson Is a Liar

11/17/2015 1:21 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Charlie Sheen knows many of his sexual partners are lining up to sue him for allegedly exposing them to HIV -- but he insists Bree Olson can take a seat, because she has NO case.

Sources close to Charlie tell us Bree was lying when she told Howard Stern she was living with Sheen around the time he was first diagnosed, and he'd kept her in the dark about it. 

We're told Sheen is adamant ... he didn't KNOW he'd contracted the virus until AFTER he got back from his 20-city tour, which ended on May 3, 2011. Olson famously broke up with Charlie nearly two weeks prior to that date via text message.

Yes, it's a short time span -- but our sources say the important part is Charlie had absolutely zero knowledge he was HIV positive while with Bree.

Charlie Sheen Kids Were Blindsided By HIV Announcement

11/17/2015 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1116-charlie-sheen-tmz-08Charlie Sheen did not tell 4 of his 5 children that he was announcing to the world he had HIV ... sources connected to Charlie tell TMZ.

Our Charlie sources say although he told 30-year-old Cassandra in advance, he did not tell 11-year-old Sam, 10-year-old Lola, or his 6-year-old twins, Bob and Max.

It's especially problematic for Sam and Lola, who are both in school and have to deal with classmates and others without preparation.

We're told the children are all fine ... free of the virus, but there's a measure of emotional upset that clearly must be dealt with ... and the kids will have to handle it without any preparation.
