Charlie Sheen is worried about legal ramifications as a result of his disclosing his HIV-positive diagnosis, but told Today's Matt Lauer that many of the critical people in his life, including his ex-wives Denise Richards and Brooke Mueller, were aware of his condition.
Lauer asked the Two and a Half Men star if he's expecting an onslaught of lawsuits in the next coming of months, and Sheen confessed he's expecting exactly that. "I can only imagine based on what I've already experienced and what's come down the pike," he said, before adding, "I'm sure that's next."
But the Golden Globe winner is taking the high road. After confessing to having been blackmailed for up to $10 million, Sheen is ready to take control of the situation despite admitting that telling the truth has already cost him.
"Having divulged [my diagnosis] is the reason I'm in the mess that I'm in with all the shakedowns," he explained Tuesday morning. "Again, I can't sit here and worry about it. I can only sit here with you and tell my truth."
