Online gossip has been rife in recent weeks after Radar Online published a blind item suggesting an A-List actor had contracted the virus, though Sheen has refused to comment on the subsequent speculation. According to People Magazine, the 50-year-old has known about his condition for “more than a year” and though he has tried to keep his status secret, people close to the actor have started leaking the news.

Sheen was once the highest paid actor on US TV, receiving $1.9 million per episode for ‘Two and a Half Men.’ That role ended after a public meltdown in 2011, a descent best remembered for Sheen claiming he possessed "tiger blood and Adonis DNA," while declaring he was constantly “winning” in interviews.
