(Newser) – Bree Olson says Charlie Sheen exposed her to HIV without telling her, but according to sources close to Sheen, he says she's lying. Those sources tell TMZ that Sheen wasn't diagnosed with HIV until he returned from his "Violent Torpedo of Truth" tour in May 2011, and Olson (who has also gone by the name Rachel Oberlin) had dumped him almost two weeks before the end of the tour. Sheen's manager gave a statement to E! putting even more than two weeks' distance between Olson and the HIV diagnosis: "Bree Olsen was with Charlie in March and April of 2011 when he fired her from the [Violent Torpedo of Truth] tour. Charlie was not HIV positive at that time and tested negative two times after he got back from the tour. He didn't tell her because he wasn't HIV positive at the time. He has not spoken to her since April 2011."

But there are a number of other women who are similarly unhappy with Sheen: As of Tuesday, TMZ said six women had officially "lawyered up" and planned to sue Sheen, with four more considering the same. Their claim is that they had unprotected sex with Sheen and he never told them that he had HIV, and they want to sue for sexual battery, fraud, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. And then there are the women Sheen has already been paying: As lawyers for some of those women explain to TMZ, Sheen's payments were part of legal settlements meant to be paid out in installments, set up because Sheen allegedly had unprotected sex with the women without disclosing his HIV status. The way Sheen told the story, these women were "shaking him down" and threatening to reveal his diagnosis, so now that he's gone public, he no longer plans to pay them ... but their lawyers tell TMZ if that happens, he can expect more legal action. (Sheen's "sexcapades" allegedly got even crazier than porn stars.)
