Think he chose settling down over winning.
Charlie Sheen has settled a lawsuit filed by an ex in which she claimed the actor had knowingly exposed her to HIV, per TMZ. She reportedly got $120,000 in the deal.
The accuser, known only as Jane Doe in the legal documents, alleged through the first filing in June 2017 that she met Sheen in September 2015, and not long after, they began having sexual relations.
He reportedly used a condom at first, but from October 26, 2015, he switched to having unprotected sex with the woman, who is characterized in the legal files as a “Russian emigrant.” Prior to the skin-to-skin contact, he had assured her he was fine when she asked if he had sexually transmitted diseases.
After that meeting, however, he confessed to her that he was in fact HIV positive — something he’d known since 2011 — and allegedly gave her pills to protect her from contracting the virus.
She reportedly sought further preventive care at an emergency clinic before confronting him about his actions a few days later. In the argument, he supposedly described himself as “‘noble'” for informing her of his HIV status in the first place, adding that he didn’t tell her before they had unprotected sex because it was “”none of her f- king affairs.’”
He reportedly continued to rant about how the antiviral drugs were unnecessary and part of “‘the helpful rumors of the medical community'”.
The entire alleged incident supposedly took place weeks before the “Two and a Half Men” star came out to the public about contracting the disease, when he revealed his HIV status to Matt Lauer during the “Today” — show in Nov 2015.
This lawsuit was not the first brought against Sheen, in which he alleged that he knowingly exposed a former sexual partner to HIV, amid a number of other ignoble behaviors in the context of his romantic entanglements.
In December 2015, Sheen’s ex-fiancée, Scottine Ross, filed another lawsuit alleging that the actor assaulted and mistreated her over the course of their relationship — the lawsuit detailing several horrific cases of his alleged treatment of her. — all in addition to not disclosing his HIV status to the model and porn actress, who was 24 at the start of their roughly one-year relationship.
Finally, in 2016, it was revealed that Sheen had knowingly exposed at least 25 sexual partners to HIV without informing them that he was a carrier of the virus, arguing that he was not having unprotected sex with them.
