Caught hiding his HIV status, Sheen responds to The ENQUIRER’s blockbuster report!
Charlie Sheen gave a bizarre rambling interview to Matt Lauer on "Today" in response to The ENQUIRER's worldwide exclusive on his HIV Positive status—with the morning-show host frequently having to cite a letter that the troubled actor had written. Viewers at home were baffled by Lauer having to real Sheen's ramblings about "karmic confusion" and "truth becoming treason."
Sheen's open letter is also a desperate attempt to cover up the secrets that will be hitting newsstands tomorrow in issues of The National ENQUIRER—as Sheen wrote about the HIV diagnosis that he'd soon keep from his lovers: "The news was a ‘mule kick' to my soul. Those impossible words I absorbed and then tried to convince myself, that I was stuck, suspended, or even stranded inside some kind of alternate reality or nightmare, were to the absolute contrary."
In a troubling development, Sheen begins the letter by insisting that he is already technically cured of HIV. Sheen wrote of his treatment: "Not missing a beat, a med dose, or one shred of guidance, quickly my viral loads became undetectable. Like every other challenge in my life, again, I was victorious and kicking this disease's ass. I wish my story had ended there. Unfortunately, for my family and myself, it had only just begun."
"The personal disbelief, karmic confusion, shame and anger lead to a temporary yet abysmal decent into profound substance abuse and fathomless drinking," Sheen wrote—referring to his notorious public meltdown that began in 2011 before he was fired from "Two and a Half Men. "It was a suicide run. Problem was, I'd forgotten that I'm too tough for such a cowardly departure."
In a strange variation of his former boast of having "tiger blood," Sheen wrote: "My medical team could only shake their heads as each and every blood test returned levels revealing a state of remission."
Sheen's own doctor corrected his patient when Sheen declared it was "impossible" for him to have passed on the HIV virus to his sexual partners. The ENQUIRER will soon reveal how Sheen spent millions paying off his deceived lovers, but Sheen's open letter has tried to blame the people—including prostitutes—who were seduced by his batty behavior.
"I dazedly chose (or hired) the companionship of unsavory and insipid types," said Sheen. "Regardless of their salt-less reputations, I always lead with condoms and honesty when it came to my condition. Sadly, my truth soon became their treason, as a deluge of blackmail and extortion took center stage in this circus of deceit."
"To date," wrote Sheen, "I have paid out countless millions to these desperate charlatans. Locked in a vacuum of fear, I chose to allow their threats and skullduggery to vastly deplete future assets from my children, while my 'secret' sat entombed in their hives of folly."
While the upcoming edition will soon reveal that Sheen was "victimized" by traumatized innocents, The ENQUIRER also hopes that Sheen is finally sincere in his closing lines: "I accept this condition not as a curse or scourge, but rather as an opportunity and a challenge. An opportunity to help others. A challenge to better myself."
