UPDATE: Bree Olson is speaking out again, this time on Twitter. "I thought by doing 1 radio & 1 television interview- this would stop, but it hasn't," she wrote. "I DO NOT HAVE HIV. I AM HIV NEGATIVE." 


Charlie Sheen's team is responding to claims made by an ex-girlfriend who alleged the actor never told her he was HIV-positive.

Former "Goddess" Bree Olson appeared on SiriusXM's Howard Stern Show Tuesday to discuss the Two and a Half Men star's personal interview on Today.

While speaking with Matt Lauer, Sheen made it clear that he told any and all partners of his diagnosis prior to engaging in sexual acts with them. Olson, however, was quick to call "bulls--t" claiming she had no idea of his diagnosis.

"He doesn't even value my life," she said. "If someone goes without knowing, and there's plenty of girls I'm sure he's had in his life where they don't go get tested regularly like I do with the types of lives that they lead."


In response to her interview, Sheen's manager tells E! News that the actor was not HIV-positive at the time of their relationship.

"Bree Olsen was with Charlie in March and April of 2011 when he fired her from the [Violent Torpedo of Truth] tour," Mark Burg said in a statement to E! News. "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."

During his interview with Today, Sheen said that since his diagnosis four years ago, he has had unprotected sex with only two women. He also insisted that they were seeking medical attention to make sure everything was safe.

"The two people that I did it with were under the care of my doctor and they were completely warned ahead of time," Sheen explained.

Since the news broke, E! News has learned that ex's Brooke Mueller and Denise Richards are all HIV-negative. Meanwhile, former porn star Kacey Jordan is speaking out on Twitter about her relationship with Sheen.

"I've been quiet for 2 weeks. My phones, my emails…I've pushed them away," she tweeted. "Finally. All my words. I support Charlie in his decision to come forward. It's disgusting these girls shaming him after his personal confession."
