Charlie Sheen will sit down for a interview with Matt Lauer on Today Tuesday morning.
NBC News announced that Sheen will be making a ‘revealing personal announcement’ but did not provide any further details of what he and Lauer would be discussing.
Sheen, 50, has spent most of the past year out of the spotlight and has not appeared on television since his show Anger Management went off the air in 2014 save a guest appearance on the ABC comedy The Goldbergs in February.
The National Enquirer is reporting that Sheen is HIV positive.

Shocking claims: The National Enquirer is reporting that Sheen is HIV positive
‘Charlie had sex with multiple partners since learning his HIV status without informing them of his potentially deadly HIV infection,’ a source told the Enquirer.
Another source said; ‘Charlie hired escorts, and him being HIV-positive never entered these women’s minds.
‘The fact is, he was playing Russian roulette with their lives, while the women were playing Russian roulette with the prospect of becoming pregnant by Sheen, and being set for life.’
The Enquirer is also reporting that one of the women who was allegedly exposed settled a civil action against the actor after retaining Gloria Allred as her lawyer.
Sheen has been married three times and has five children – a daughter Cassandra, 21, with high school sweetheart Paula Profit; Daughters Sam, 11, and Lola, 10, with second wife Denise Richards; and twin boys Bob and Max, 6, with third wife Brooke Mueller.
He had been engaged to be married to adult film star Scottine Ross, also known as Brett Rossi, but the engagement was called off in October 2014 after eight months.
In a video obtained by the Enquirer, Ross is reportedly seen screaming about Sheen; ‘You exposed me to HIV for a year and a half!’
An insider claims; ‘Sheen waited over four months to inform Scottine that he was HIV positive. From the very beginning, Sheen never used protection, saying he “loved” her.’
The Enquirer also reportedly obtained a text message sent by Mueller to Sheen’s former assistant which reads; ‘I couldn’t handle the HIV news. Just 6 months ago I was diagnosed with the eye disease and then Charlie potentially giving me HIV.
‘I started doing heavy drugs with Charlie, staying up for days and it made my brain misfire.’
The ex-boyfriend of one of the women allegedly exposed to HIV from Sheen told the Enquirer; ‘Charlie bought her a house in Calabasas and put her on his payroll to keep quiet. Now she’s married, and she and her husband are living off Charlie.’
Another source added; ‘There are tons of girls that get a regular check from Charlie. It’s kind of an apology for exposing them to what he’s exposed them to.’
Sheen had reportedly spent $5million to keep the news that he had HIV ‘silent,’ but despite this it has now become an ‘open secret’ to many in Hollywood.
An email that was released in the wake of the Sony hack from March of 2014 included a link to an article reporting that Sheen was having trouble on the set of his show Anger Management, and the sender wrote ‘it’s hard to to be a drug addict and be HIV positive and do 40 eps a year.’
Nik Richie, who runs the site The Dirty, also revealed on Monday that a lawsuit filed by Sheen against the site after they reported he was HIV positive had been dropped according to lawyer Marty Singer.
Sheen – who is strongly opposed to vaccinations – is reportedly on a cocktail of drugs to treat the disease and his outlook is positive.
He was once the highest paid actor on television, earning a reported $1.8million per episode for his work on Two and a Half Men during the show’s eighth season.
The actor has had numerous problems with drugs and alcohol over the years, and was ultimately fired from his role on Men when he demanded more money for his work following his third stint in rehab in a 12-month period.
Born Carlos Estevez, Sheen is the son of actor Martin Sheen and brother of Emilio Estevez.
