An A-list Hollywood actor has reportedly been diagnosed with HIV.
The ‘womanising’ superstar has also had a few high-profile sexual partners, The Sun reported.
It’s thought his lawyers are aware and are preparing for the potential legal fall-out from his ex-lovers.
According to The Sun the actor’s list of exes include: an award-winning actress, a TV star, one top Hollywood personality with a controversial past, a media personality, glamour model, and even a religious movie star.
A US showbiz source told The Sun:
It has now become common knowledge that this star is HIV positive, something he has known for a number of years.
His lawyers are bracing for the threat of potential action.
The reality is that if he’s knowingly put women at risk then that’s disgusting and it’s only a matter of time before that becomes public.
Apparently friends of the star have tried to get him to come out about his condition, but he’s worried his career might be defined by the disease, and he would open himself up to legal action from previous partners.
The source said:
He’s distraught about the possibility of the illness becoming a defining quality of his career. He’s also concerned a lot of exes and previous one-night stands could look to sue.
If he has had unprotected sex with women, knowing he has HIV, then I would imagine he will definitely be getting sued, or prosecuted.
What an absolutely disgusting thing to do.
