Charlie Sheen‘s ex-girlfriend Bree Olson is calling “bullshit” on the actor’s claim that he told every sexual partner he’s had since being diagnosed with HIV four years ago that he was positive.
“Yes, I have,” the former “Two and a Half Men” star told “Today” host Matt Lauer on Tuesday when asked if he’d been forthcoming with sexual partners about his HIV status. “No exception.”
“It’s bullshit,” Olson, a former porn star, told Howard Stern while appearing on his SiriusXM show Tuesday shortly after Sheen’s bombshell admission. Olson says she lived with Sheen after he was diagnosed, and “had sex almost every day for a year” with only lambskin condoms as protection, and sometimes no condoms.
“He never said anything to me,” she said, and added that she’s not going to bother calling her former flame to vent her frustration because she doesn’t think he’d even care if she did.
“He doesn’t even value my life,” Olson said in the first interview in which she revealed her own HIV testing results: negative.
But Olson is still concerned about any number of sexual partners Sheen could have had who don’t take advantage of easy HIV testing, a process that took her 20 minutes in Indiana.
“Luckily, there’s enough medications now where people with HIV, they can lead a full life, but if someone goes without knowing — and there’s plenty of girls that he’s had in his life, and they don’t get tested regularly like I do,” Olson said.
“All I know right now is that now, because of him, anytime someone hears my name they think of HIV right next to it,” she added.
Olson was audibly shaken throughout the course of the interview, in which she said she found out about his condition just three days ago, “right along with everyone else,” despite their sexual history.
“For a year, Howard. For. A. Year,” she stressed. “He knew. He just said it on that [‘Today’] interview — during the ‘Tiger Blood’ time, he knew. That’s me. I was there during that time.”
