At least 5 ex-lovers of Charlie Sheen plan to sue, claiming he hid HIV status before sex: attorney

Charlie Sheen says he always led with "condoms and honesty" after his HIV diagnosis four years ago, but at least five sex partners claim that's a lie and have hired a lawyer, a legal source told the Daily News.

The unidentified women contacted the southern California attorney in the last few days with claims the "Anger Management" star did not disclose his HIV status before bedding them, the bar-certified attorney told The News.

The women are considering claims for intentional infliction of emotional distress, fraud, sexual battery and negligent transmission of a sexually transmitted disease, the lawyer said. 
"These aren't shakedowns. If Charlie Sheen's name was Charlie Brown, he still could be sued," the lawyer said.

"He needs to own up to what he did," the lawyer continued. "What he did was not only civilly actionable but probably criminal too."

At least 5 ex-lovers of Charlie Sheen plan to sue, claiming he hid HIV status before sex: attorney
The lawyer described his clients as a mix of adult film stars, fans and escorts. He said 10 potential victims had reached out to him for representation related to Sheen as of Tuesday afternoon.

He said they're exploring their legal options but are "concerned about going public because they don't want their parents to know and don't want to be labeled as having been exposed."

One of the women claims she engaged in sex with Sheen within the last few weeks without knowing he was HIV positive, the lawyer said.

Sheen, 50, reportedly has had scores of paramours in recent years, so the floodgates for more legal claims could open wide.

His former "goddess" Rachel Oberlin, a porn star who goes by the stage name Bree Olson, claims the actor never once spoke to her about his infection.

She and Sheen lived together in 2011, either during or shortly before the time he received his diagnosis.
Oberlin had to learn the details of Sheen's medical saga the way everyone else did – through his Tuesday media statements, her friend told The News. 
"It's just malicious that he never told her. They had unprotected sex all the time. He should have called her and told her to get tested. He had a responsibility to tell her. It's like he had no regard for her life," the angry friend said Tuesday.

"She got tested yesterday and is so grateful she tested negative. She's so lucky," the friend said.

Sheen revealed Tuesday he was diagnosed roughly four years ago after rushing to an emergency room with a three-day migraine.

He called the news a "mule kick" to this soul. Actor Charlie Sheen (c.) is driven out of Rockefeller Center after an interview with "Today" show host Matt Lauer on Tuesday.

The actor said he sank into a suicidal fog of substance abuse but successfully treated his infection to the point that the viral load in his blood is undetectable.

Sheen stressed in his statement and during an interview on NBC's "Today" show that he always informed his sex partners and felt betrayed when several repaid his honesty with money grabs.

"I dazedly chose (or hired) the companionship of unsavory and insipid types. Regardless of their salt-less reputations, I always lead with condoms and honesty when it came to my condition. Sadly, my truth soon became their treason, as a deluge of blackmail and extortion took center stage in this circus of deceit," he said in the statement obtained by The News.

"To date, I have paid out countless millions to these desperate charlatans. Locked in a vacuum of fear, I chose to allow their threats and skullduggery to vastly deplete future assets from my children, while my 'secret' sat entombed in their hives of folly," he said.

Sheen said he decided to step forward to stop the blackmail but admitted during an interview with "Today" host Matt Lauer that more legal action is expected.
