Charlie Sheen on supporters, finances, revealing HIV status to family


Continuing the exclusive interview with TODAY’s Matt Lauer in which he officially revealed his HIV-positive status, actor Charlie Sheen says of the possibility of a barrage of lawsuits from sexual partners, “I’m sure that’s next.” He confirms that he’s paid out upwards of $10 million to suppress stories of his HIV status and admits his financial condition is “not great,” but adds, “I’m a survivor.” He says that when he revealed his HIV status to daughter Cassandra Estevez, “it hit her hard,” but “she was a rock star about it,” and he confirmed that ex-wives Denise Richards and Brooke Mueller were told about his status right away.
