TMZ — Charlie Sheen will reveal to the world that he’s HIV positive. Sources connected to NBC’s “Today” tell TMZ … Sheen will sit down with Matt Lauer on Tuesday morning to make the announcement. NBC touted the interview in a press release as Sheen making a “revealing personal announcement.” A tabloid report came out Monday claiming Sheen’s been keeping the diagnosis secret for years. You’ve gotta imagine he’ll address that report tomorrow morning on “Today.”
I’ve gotta hand it to Charlie here… that was a remarkable run. This headline should have come in 1990 at the latest. Shit, even ’90 is late. Charlie shouldn’t even have made it out of the 80’s without catching the hivvy. That dude lived the sex, drugs, and rock and roll lifestyle harder than anyone we’ve ever seen. He’s been to every whore house from here to Timbuktu and lived on a cocaine diet for three-plus decades. The fact that he made it to 2015 is nothing short of miraculous.
These last 25 years have basically been borrowed time. Maybe he did have a point with the whole “winning” thing after all. Sorry about the news Charlie, but not really. It’s pretty much all your fault, and this was only a matter of time.
