Charlie Sheen’s manager refutes ex’s claims

Washington D.C., Nov 18 (ANI): Charlie Sheen’s representatives have denied former girlfriend Bree Olson’s claims that the actor never told her about his HIV diagnosis.

In an interview with Us Weekly, Sheen’s manager, Mark Burg, said that the truth was she wasn’t in Charlie’s life when he was HIV-positive and so, there was no reason to tell her anything.

Mark said that the actor was tested on a number of occasions around that time, but his diagnosis was long after he fired Olson from the ‘Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option tour.’

Olson, who apparently left her career as an adult actor for him, had claimed that the ‘Two and a Half Men’ star never told her he was HIV positive while she was sleeping with him. (ANI)
