This story has haunted my conscience for approximately four years. If this news and the presidential election were the same day: I'm not sure which story would get more coverage! Temporarily, due to the tragic terror attack in Paris, Charlie Sheen dodged the media's bullet, but the charade is coming to an end…
Not only does he have HIV — he's knowingly slept with hundreds of women while fully cognizant of his HIV+ status.
How do I know? Let me explain…
For purposes of this story, I am NOT using real names. The two women affected by Charlie’s megalomania have moved on with their lives and are mothers. Girl #1 was a procurer of “talent” for Mr. Sheen and a dear friend. Girl #2 was an up-and-coming pornstar, who suddenly disappeared.
I used to work in the adult business. It was no secret Charlie has a taste for porn girls. These events transpired during height Charie Sheen delusion: his departure from Two and a Half Man, the “winning”, Tiger Blood, comedy tours, and erratic TV interviews.
Charlie was America's anti-hero and very much “A-List” in his own right.
About 6 years ago, I met Girl #1 at The Rainbow Bar in LA. I knew she was a porn star, but she had a butch-dyke girlfriend. At first, I assumed she was a full-on lesbian and didn’t have interest in guys outside of “work”. She was attractive, hilarious, fun and smart. She also had strong pimp hand with the girls. We’d go to clubs in Hollywood together, I would say, “Go round up 10 girls. I want them naked in my hot tub. I’ll give you 50$ a head!” Nine times out of ten she would succeed and never asked for the money. Like Chris Rock says, “Guys don't have girls for friends. They just have girls they haven't fucked — YET!” There is a lot of truth to that joke. After 2 years, we started banging. We didn't ever “date” — just were fuck-buddies.
When we met, she looked really strung-out; she hadn’t been taking care of herself. She always had a problem with meth, but you I could clearly see she’d been going harder than normal. I don’t judge. I like to tell people, “I tried meth once: From 1992 to 1999. It was a one long-ass day.” We went out, got hammered and then back to her apartment. She broke out a meth pipe immediately. I did a couple hits, remembered why I quit, and stuck to beer while she puffed away. I asked if she was still going to Charlie's. She responded, “Not for months” and went on to say they weren’t “talking”. I asked what happened. She explained, “I had brought this girl over to his house he requested for a threesome. After the girl left, I was laying in bed with him and he asked (very nonchalantly) if I could go in the bathroom and get my AIDS medicine. I thought he was making some kind of sick joke. I’d been having unprotected sex with him almost year along with 50 other girls at minimum.”
She described how she went into the bathroom and there was the HIV cocktail with his name on the prescriptions. So she took a picture of the bottles before bringing him his pills. I listened in disbelief. I said, “Whoa hang on! Back up. Are you serious?” She said, “Yes.” Then she broke down and explained that’s why she disappeared on a Belushi-sized bender — not knowing how to cope and too scared to get tested. I asked, “What she was going to do about it?”
I was revolted and a bit scared, because I'd been having sex with her too. I told her, “I have a friend who knows people at TMZ. If Charlie's is going to pull shit like this, you may as well cash in, because it's only a matter of time some other girl does.” So, I called up my buddy. It was 4AM, so left a message, “I have the biggest story you will ever be part of. You need to contact me ASAP.” Ten minutes later, my phone rings, twenty minutes later he's at her apartment in a bathrobe. I was sobering up but she kept smoking and getting pretty spun. I told her to tell him exactly what she’d just told me. When he heard, his jaw dropped. I asked, “How much is a story like this would be worth?” He replied, “Let me go talk to some people and I will come back at noon.” I got few hours sleep and he was back at 12 sharp.
He said, “Look, TMZ would probably pay a million for a story like this, but that's taking the short money: To truly cash in — the money is in NOT making the story come out.” He explained he had a lawyer, who had sued Charlie Sheen many times over similar issues (like giving a girl herpes). By this time, Girl #1 still hadn’t slept and was really high. When the lawyer called, I talked to him for her. He suggested meeting for dinner in a couple days. With the state Girl #1 had deteriorated into, I didn't feel like she had days to spare. We needed to handle this now! She was afraid of Charlie. I told her to get her stuff and come to my house.6 PM that night The Lawyer came by and she still hadn't slept and was barely completing sentences, so I explained the situation. I told her to show him her phone with the pictures and text messages. He took a look and said I would go buy another iPhone right now, if he can keep this one, then went into a “canned personal injury lawyer” monolo how important it was to make sure she was “OK”. He insisted she get tested, probably hoping she was HIV+, so the settlement would be higher. The next day, we both went to get HIV tests; both were (thankfully) negative. The Lawyer could see Girl #1 was not in the best condition. He asked if I'd protect his investment until he could get her into a rehab, so she stayed with me.
Girl #1 got out of rehab and moved to a nice quiet suburb in Calabasas, still on the lawyer's dime. When negotiations finally ended, the settlement came to $10 million with the payments structured across five years to ensure silence. It looked like Girl #1 was going to turn her life around. She had distanced herself from the temptations of Hollywood porn scene, was staying in NA meetings and seemed happy. We'd hang out a couple days a week, go to the beach, chill and watch movies. It was a happy, but brief period. One problem was, as fast as she was getting money she was spending it. I tried to tell she needed to slow her roll and stretch the money out, but she didn't listen.
After a while, I heard from her less often, I guess she got back into meth.
So many years have passed; I even began to wonder when this story would surface or was it even true? Surely, someone would have come forward by now? That was until the morning of November 13th, 2015 when I read this headline in the Daily Mail “EXCLUSIVE: Porn star who had sex with Hollywood actor secretly battling HIV fears epidemic as she reveals he has slept with at least 50 ‘adult actresses' AND transsexuals“! I knew damn well they weren't referring to Wilford Brimley! This story was the biggest news story in the world for a few hours until the Paris Attacks shifted the news coverage away. Mr. Sheen, serendipitously, dodged a bullet — unlike some unfortunate souls in Paris! The attacks just put a finger in the dam of truth! When the levee breaks, everyone will see how much of a loser America's biggest “winner” really is!
“Denial” isn't just a river in Egypt — Mr. Sheen.
The game is up.
