Charlie Sheen is HIV-positive, according to multiple reports in the gossip media. The National Enquirer first broke the story, and now TMZ says multiple sources connected to NBC's Today show have told the gossip site that is, in fact, what Sheen is set to announce on the show Tuesday. All the show itself is saying is that Sheen will make a "revealing personal announcement" during a sit-down with Matt Lauer on the episode. Apparently, rumors of a secretly HIV-positive celebrity have been going around for a while now, and people have recently started speculating Sheen is the subject of those rumors.
