Charlie Sheen‘s ex-girlfriend Bree Olson slammed the actor on Tuesday, Nov. 17, in the wake of his revelation that he is HIV positive, and accused him of lying to her about his status, but Sheen’s manager tells Us Weekly that she has her facts wrong.
Olson, who was one of the former Two and a Half Men star’s live-in girlfriends in 2011, told Inside Edition that Sheen learned his status “when him and I were living together,” but didn’t tell her. “He is a monster, and he put my life in jeopardy along with hundreds — or potentially thousands — of other women’s lives,” an emotional Olson, whose real name is Rachel Oberlin, told IE.
But Sheen’s manager, Mark Burg, tells Us that “the truth is she wasn’t in Charlie’s life when he was HIV-positive and so there was no reason to tell her anything.”
Olson, 29, lived with Sheen in spring 2011 as one of his “goddesses,” but Burg says that at that stage, the 50-year-old star was “100 percent HIV-negative.”
Burg adds that Sheen was tested on a number of occasions around that time but his diagnosis “was long after he fired Bree Olson” from the Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option tour.
Sheen revealed that he is HIV-positive in an interview with Matt Lauer on the Today show on Tuesday, Nov. 17, and insisted that all of the people who he was intimate with after his diagnosis “were completely warned ahead of time.”
