Sheen confirmed that he was at The Today Show to admit that he “is in fact HIV positive, saying that, “It’s a hard three letters to absorb. It’s a turning point in one’s life.”

As to why he decided to share the news, he explained that, “I have to put a stop to this onslaught, this barrage of attacks and of sub-truths and very harmful and mercurial stories that are about me, threatening the health of so many others that couldn’t be further from the truth.”

Sheen also detailed that he was diagnosed four years ago, explaining that, “It started with what I thought was a series of crushing headaches. I thought I had a brain tumor. I thought it was over.”
