Following his highly anticipated Today Show interview with Matt Lauer during which he revealed he was HIV positive, Charlie Sheen has become the center of a media firestorm. A handful of former partners, including "goddesses" (Sheen-speak for live-in girlfriends) Bree Olson and Natalie Kenly who claim to have lived with Sheen during the time he received his diagnosis, have come forward alleging that he failed to disclose his virus before engaging in sex.
Since Sheen's manager Mark Burg has fired back at the allegations, specifically from Olson, telling People, "Bree Olson is all over Howard Stern but 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."
But a damning new report from RadarOnline alleges that Sheen's financial records from his production company show he spent millions on sex workers following his diagnosis. Sheen told Lauer he has been HIV positive for four years, however the report is from 2013. From RadarOnline:
According to 2013 financial reports for his production company 9th Step — prepared nearly two years after he says he found out he was infected — he spent $1,629,507 on hookers.
According to an insider close to Sheen, “The item was listed as ‘Friendly Entertainment,’ which was Charlie’s shorthand for sex workers.” There’s no mention of how many women, or men, that covered — and whether he told them of his HIV status.
The report names myriad other expenses, including half a million dollars each to his chef and two ex-wives for child support, as well as "$130,000 on parties, $105,835 on hotels, and $136,856 on clothing." However, it also adds that Sheen donated $188,700 to charities and "supported many AIDS-related charities during the years in which he was desperately shelling out thousands to stop the world from learning his HIV secret." (Sheen estimated in his interview with Lauer that his hush money figure was actually in the millions.)
Additionally, In Touch Weekly has released images of a non-disclosure contract that Sheen allegedly had asked his sexual partners sign. "By agreeing to arbitration, we are giving up any rights we may have to a trial by a judge or jury with regard to the matters which are required to be submitted to mandatory binding arbitration," it reads. "We understand, acknowledge and agree that there is no right to an appeal or a review of an arbitrator’s award as there would be of a judge or jury’s decision." From In Touch:
The document forbids anyone who signs the paperwork from disclosing the previously defined “confidential information” to friends, family, social networks, media outlets, publishers, etc. or face legal consequences.
Should someone who signs the agreement fail to follow the aforementioned rules, they must compensate the Two and a Half Men actor with a fine of $100,000 in addition to any money incurred from breaking the agreement.
