Charlie Sheen has reportedly slept with more than 700 women since his rise to fame, and now his promiscuity may be coming back to haunt him — legally. According to Mirror Online, Charlie’s ex-lovers are completely outraged about his HIV-positive confession, and there’s reportedly an uproar in Hollywood because many of those women now fear for their lives.
When Charlie Sheen sat down with Matt Lauer on the Today show on November 17, 2015, he revealed he’d contracted HIV approximately four years ago. The shocking confession sparked a media firestorm and almost immediately after the show, hundreds of women began worrying about the possibility of their lives being compromised. In fact, his ex-girlfriend, Bree Olsen, has already spoken publicly to share her reaction to his confession. Like many other women who were involved with Charlie Sheen, she is devastated. Olsen, a notable porn star in the adult film industry, adamantly insists Charlie should pay for deceiving so many women.
Almost immediately after Charlie Sheen’s announcement, Olsen was tested negative for HIV. Although she is HIV-negative, she still feels the deceit is unforgivable.
“He put my life in jeopardy. Whether he knew the entire time or found out after we split up… either way, he’s putting my life at risk… He never reached out to tell me. If he had called or texted years ago to let me know, I’d have taken more tests, more precautions. I would have let my partners know I had possibly been exposed to HIV. He was putting a loaded gun to my head then I put a loaded gun to my partners’ heads. It is a crime to not tell your partner about your HIV status. He should face those consequences.”
More than 75 women were already contacting attorneys to go after the actor for his failure to disclose his HIV status. However, that’s not all. The women coming after Charlie are citing a number of problematic issues, including “emotional distress to negligent transmission of a sex disease.”
Although the disease was detected four years ago, legal advisors for some women will probably cite Charlie Sheen’s promiscuity and carelessness as an issue, arguing that the diagnosis could have possibly been avoided because if he’d been more careful. Since HIV can lay dormant for years before being detected, there’s really no way to tell how long Charlie Sheen has actually had the virus.
Then, to make matters worse, it’s been rumored that Charlie’s estimate of 700 sex partners isn’t anywhere near the number of women he’s been intimate with. An inside source claims Charlie has actually had more than 5,000 sex partners, 500 of which were sex workers over the past four years.
“Charlie once boasted he’d had 5,000 women… After he was diagnosed he’s admitted he went out of control. Say he slept with 500 sex workers in the past four years and they slept with five people each – thousands could have been exposed to HIV. It’s caused panic.”
According to PNAS.org statistics, sex workers engage in some form of sexual activity with approximately two to five partners each night they work. So, unfortunately, Charlie Sheen probably has no idea who he may have contracted HIV from. The disturbing statistics and rumors, along with Charlie’s confession have a lot of women quite alarmed. If the bombshell claim is true, there could be many others who have been exposed to HIV.
