Brett Rossi, the former fiancee of Charlie Sheen, who revealed he was HIV positive on this morning’s Today show, spoke out on Instagram about having “peace” just hours before his shocking diagnosis was revealed during an interview with Matt Lauer.
“#instagood #peace #love #happiness #blondie #picoftheday #brettrossi,” Brett Rossi captioned a photo of herself in bed on November 16.

In the comments section of Brett Rossi’s post, the model and actress was flooded with comments regarding her ex’s health, and questions about whether or not she had been infected. However, at this point, it remains unconfirmed whether or not Brett Rossi is HIV positive. While there have been reports, claiming Sheen’s ex’s former wife, Denise Richards, and their two daughters, Sam and Lola, are not HIV-positive, and his most recent ex-wife, Brooke Mueller, has confirmed she and her sons, Max and Bob, are also not HIV-positive, there hasn’t been any news of Brett Rossi’s health. Instead, an International Business Times report has surfaced claiming Brett Rossi wasn’t informed of her ex-fiancé’s diagnosis until four months into their courtship. In August of this year, Brett Rossi went on a Twitter rant against her ex-fiancé, claiming in since-deleted tweets that the “truth always comes out.” Below is what Brett Rossi wrote, according to a Yahoo! Celebrity report.
“The truth always always comes out. You know the truth and denying it is not going to change the reality. So telling ppl s**t about me in hopes to influence a negative opinion about me will only be temporary because justice will be served… Only you and I know what happened behind closed doors… And YOU know what happened wasn’t right. So keep spinning people’s wheels… They only listen & agree because they are on ur payroll. Yes,these tweets are aimed directly to u..hope ur minions inform u as they always do.”
Brett Rossi’s tumultuous relationship with her ex was also chronicled by Radar Online this past October, one year after Brett Rossi moved out of her ex’s home in Beverly Hills. At the time, the site shared a video, in which Brett Rossi reportedly accused him of abuse and offered to pay her $100,000.
“You choked me out! You threw me on the floor! You dragged me around like a rag doll! You told me what a piece of s**t I was all the time. F**k you!” Brett Rossi was heard screaming in the clip.

Brett Rossi began dating the Two and A Half Men actor in 2013 following his split from Natalie Kenly, who infamously known as one of his “goddesses,” along with Bree Olson and others. Then, in February of 2014, she and Sheen got engaged.
During Brett Rossi’s ex’s interview with Lauer on TODAY, he confirmed he had told ex-wives Richards and Mueller about his HIV diagnosis in 2011, when he and Mueller were still married. He also confirmed his daughters weren’t affected by his illness, and said he encouraged Mueller to get tested after learning he had HIV.
Regarding why he decided to come clean about his diagnosis in such a public way, Brett Rossi’s ex-fiancé said he wanted to be free, and avoid any future extortion and blackmail. He explained, via Us Weekly, “I am here to admit that I am, in fact, HIV-positive. I have to put a stop to this mirage of attacks of sub-truths and very harmful and mercurial stories that are about me that are threatening the health of so many others. I think I release myself from this prison today.”
