New Delhi: Even as the world continues to grapple with the scourge of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), Hollywood bad boy Charlie Sheen has reportedly claimed that he managed to beat the dreaded disease with medication.
According to a report in TMZ, the actor will make a "revealing personal announcement" during NBC's The Today Show hosted by Matt Lauer., and it's rumored to be about his affliction and alleged subsequent cure.
The report added, that the 50-year-old actor contracted HIV two years ago, but with treatment and medication, the virus is undetectable in blood tests.
But as of now, there is no known, proven cure for HIV.
His HIV+ status was confirmed by TMZ and other media outlets, and has been reported to have many amorous relationships. In October 2014, the actor ended his eight-month engagement with adult film star Brett Rossi. Before that, he had been married three times, with five children.
Sheen, who infamously lost starring role on smash-hit sit-com Two and a Half Men in 2011, was reduced to an almost non-entity after FX decided not to renew his Anger Management role in 2014.
He rose to fame with Platoon (1986), then went onto star in movies like Wall Street (1987), Young Guns (1988), Hot Shots! (1991), The Three Musketeers (1993), Money Talks (1997), and Being John Malkovich (1999), before emerging as one of the best known small screen actors.
