Brooke Mueller has been in the spotlight for the last few days since news broke that her ex-husband, Charlie Sheen, is HIV-positive.
Brooke Mueller was married to Sheen from 2008-2011 and they have 6-year-old twin boys together. He found out about his diagnosis in 2011 while he was still technically married to Mueller.
He called Brooke Mueller and urged her to get checked, as well as the boys. Luckily, they were all negative.
Brooke Mueller’s rep, Steve Honig, said in a statement, “Brooke has been inundated with calls from friends and family. To put their minds at ease, Brooke can confirm that she and the boys are not HIV-positive.”
Charlie Sheen broke the news to the world on Tuesday’s episode of Today during an interview with Matt Lauer.
Sheen explained how he began his journey. He said, “It started with what I thought was a series of crushing headaches. I thought I had a brain tumor. I thought it was over.”
He also admitted that while Brooke Mueller and his other ex-wife, Denise Richards, have been supportive, others in his inner circle have extorted around $10 million to keep his secret.
He said, “What people forget is that that’s money they’re taking from my children.”
He added, “I trusted them and they were deep in my inner circle, and I thought they could be helpful. My trust turned to their treason.”
Charlie Sheen said he told the truth in order to stop those expensive payouts, and said he released himself from prison in doing so.
What do you think Brooke Mueller must have been going through before she tested negative for the virus?
