Things just got real in Hollywood!

Tinseltown legend Charlie Sheen revealed he’s HIV-positive in an interview with Matt Lauer Tuesday morning. The bad boy actor went public with his diagnosis in part because of allegations that he was knowingly endangering the health of others. “I’m here to admit that I am in fact HIV-positive and I have to put a stop to this onslaught, this barrage of attacks and of sub-truths and very harmful…stories that I am threatening the health of others, which couldn’t be farther from the truth,” he told Matt.

According to Charlie, he was diagnosed four years ago after suffering from migraines and night sweats. “I thought I had a brain tumor. I thought it was over,” he said. Charlie went out to tell Matt that some people who were aware of his condition extorted him “into the millions” by threatening to tell the world about his HIV status.

The former Two and A Half Men star said he’s not “entirely” sure how he contracted the disease.
