Word on the street is that actor Charlie Sheen is HIV positive and will appear on NBC’s Today tomorrow morning to reveal the news.
NBC News confirmed that Sheen will be making a ‘revealing personal announcement’ on the program, but did not provide any additional details. The National Enquirer, who we admit is not the most trusted name in news, is reporting that Sheen recklessly had sex with dozens of women since learning of his status.
“Charlie hired escorts, and him being HIV-positive never entered these women’s minds,” a source tells the publication. “The fact is, he was playing Russian roulette with their lives, while the women were playing Russian roulette with the prospect of becoming pregnant by Sheen, and being set for life.”
The Anger Management actor was set to wed adult film star Scottine Ross, also known as Brett Rossi, but the engagement was called off in October 2014. In a video obtained by the Enquirer, Ross is reportedly seen screaming about Sheen. “You exposed me to HIV for a year and a half!”
An insider tells the Enquirer, “Sheen waited over four months to inform Scottine that he was HIV positive. From the very beginning, Sheen never used protection, saying he ‘loved’ her.” If this is true, yikes.
We’ll have an update on Sheen’s announcement tomorrow morning.
UPDATE: A reliable source close to Sheen’s ex-wife Denise Richards tells Entertainment Tonight that Sheen contracted the disease four years ago. The source also revealed that Richards did not contract the disease, and neither did his daughters.
Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice
Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.
On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.
It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.
So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.
“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”
Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”
And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.
For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”
Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
