Bree Olson, one of Charlie Sheen‘s ex-girlfriends, claims that the actor did not disclose his HIV-positive status to her.

Bree Olson On Charlie Sheen’s HIV Status

On Tuesday, Sheen sat down with Today‘s Matt Lauer to reveal that he is HIV-positive. During the interview, Lauer asked the former Two and a Half Men star if he had told his sexual partners prior to sexual encounters about his status, to which Sheen replied, “Yes, I have. No exceptions.”

Olson, however, didn’t find out that Sheen had been living with HIV for the last four years until his interview. “He never said anything to me,” Olson told Howard Stern. “I was his girlfriend. I lived with him. We were together. We had sex almost every day for a year—with lambskin condoms.” Lambskin condoms, incidentally, do not protect against viral STDs, such as HIV.

“I have not spoken to him in quite some time,” Olson, who has tested negative for HIV, added to Stern. “I had spoke nothing but positive things about Charlie. I have never said a negative thing, I’ve never torn him apart in any way, but I am so upset. I couldn’t be more angry. I’m shaking, I’ve been crying… to think that someone could do that to me. I loved him. He was my boyfriend.”

Since Olson’s interview, Sheen’s manager has released a statement on the matter. While Sheen isn’t denying failing to inform Olson of his status, he is denying that he was HIV-positive during the time in which he had a sexual relationship with her.

“Bree Olsen was with Charlie in March and April of 2011 when he fired her from the [Violent Torpedo of Truth] tour,” Mark Burg said in a statement to E! News. “Charlie was not HIV positive at that time and tested negative two times after he got back from the tour.”

“He didn’t tell her because he wasn’t HIV positive at the time,” he added. “He has not spoken to her since April 2011.”

Olson had told Stern, however, that she remembers the sweating bouts that sent Sheen to the doctor, where he ultimately learned – but allegedly failed to share – his diagnosis.

“He just admitted right in that [Today] interview that [the diagnosis] is during the ‘tiger blood’ time. That’s when I was with him! I was living with him. We were sleeping together every night,” Olson told Stern. “I remember that [sweating]. He would wake up all the time in the middle of the night complaining of these symptoms, and he would blame it on steroids—these steroids he took.”

It has been reported that Sheen is facing a number of potential lawsuits in regard to his HIV status and sexual activity over the years. As of yet, Olson has not yet decided what, if any, legal action she plans to take against the actor.
