Charlie Sheen settled a 2017 lawsuit that accused the actor of exposing an ex-girlfriend to HIV. As a result, he has agreed to pay $120,000.
According to TMZ, the 56-year-old agreed to pay a woman listed as “Russian émigré” in court documents $120,000 over 12 months in $10,000 increments.
The woman states she met Sheen in September 2015 and had unprotected sex with him for the first time in October of that same year. Subsequently, the “Two and a Half Men” actor shared his HIV status after their first unprotected encounter.
When asked why he didn’t tell her about his status, Sheen responded that it was “none of her f***king business,” the court filing stated.
The unknown woman also claims that the father of five gave her “medication aimed to prevent her from contracting HIV,” Huffington Post reports.
The filing also states that Sheen told her that the antiviral drugs were unnecessary and “convenient rumors of the medical community.”
On His HIV Status
Sheen shared his HIV status in 2015 while Matt Lauer interviewed him on the “Today” show. Shortly after, his ex-fiancé Scottine Ross sued him for assault and battery, stating he failed to tell her about his HIV status.
Speaking with Piers Morgan in 2016, Sheen said he hadn’t told 25 of his sex partners of his status because it was used against him.
The only times I didn’t tell them was because the last 25 times they used it against me and used my medical condition for their own folly and financial gain,” Sheen told Morgan. “Here’s the great news. No one has been infected by me. No one.
Roomies, what do you think of this?
