Charlie Sheen has announced he is HIV positive.

NEW YORK: Former Two and A Half Men star Charlie Sheen said on Tuesday he is HIV positive.

Sheen, 50, told NBC’s ‘Today’ show in a television interview that he was diagnosed about four years ago.

“I am here to admit I am HIV positive,” Sheen said. “It’s a hard three letters to absorb.”

Sheen, who is three times divorced, played the womanising bachelor Charlie Harper on top-rated US comedy series Two and A Half Men for eight years before being fired in 2011 for bad behavior that included cocaine-fueled partying with porn stars and a conviction for assaulting his ex-wife.
