Charlie Sheen’s ex Bree Olson has claimed he lied to her about being HIV-positive.
Olson told Howard Stern in an interview on Tuesday that when the pair were together Sheen had reassured her he was clean – despite being aware that he had HIV.
The former porn star lived with Sheen for a few months from late 2010 to early 2011, and claims whenever she would mention HIV he’d tell her ‘I’m clean’, Elite Daily reported.
According to Olson they did use condoms when they had sex, but that Sheen preferred lambskin ones to latex.
Her claims directly contradict what the actor said in his interview on Today, where Sheen insisted he was always up front with women about his sexual health, after he found out he had the virus.
Olson did not catch HIV from Sheen but did find his casual disregard for her health disturbing. She said in her interview with Stern:
Just because I’m an ex-sex worker… I’m a human being, I have a family, I have a future. I’m doing so many positive things now and to think that you could have taken that away from me, that you knowingly were doing that… He doesn’t even value my life… Luckily, there’s enough medications and stuff now that people with HIV, they can lead a full life. But if someone goes without knowing — and there’s plenty of girls, I’m sure, that he’s had in his life where they don’t go get tested regularly like I do with the types of lives that they lead — and it turns into AIDS, it becomes a whole different ballgame.
Olson alleges she was never warned that Sheen had HIV, and that she found out ‘right along with everyone else.’
According to Sheen, he’s known about the virus for four years, although it remains unclear whether he had HIV when he was with Olson in 2011.
