Charlie Sheen has been the subject of much speculation throughout most of the day, with several media outlets reporting he might announce on tomorrow's Today Show that he is HIV-positive. E! News has since confirmed this is true.

The sources that confirmed this information also confirm that Charlie Sheen's ex, Denise Richards, and the children they share are all HIV-negative. There is thus far no such confirmation on Charlie Sheen's other two ex-wives, Donna Peele (1995-96) or Brooke Mueller (2008-11). Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards were married from 2002-06.

Sheen is scheduled to give a live, on-air interview to Today's Matt Lauer on NBC in Studio 1A tomorrow. A press release issued earlier today says Charlie Sheen "will make a revealing personal announcement."

Charlie Sheen was fired from his role on Two and a Half Men in 2011. In recent months no one has seen Sheen in photos or on TV, adding much speculation to this upcoming announcement. Is it possible Charlie Sheen might have full blown AIDS? His physical absence hasn't prevented him from doing something he is incredibly good at--trashing one of his ex-wives via social media. Most recently his victim of choice was Denise Richards and his forum of choice was Twitter.

It will be interesting to learn exactly what Charlie Sheen has to say to Matt Lauer on Tuesday's Today Show. Hopefully, despite the disturbing health revelation, Sheen is on track with a proactive treatment plan.

Does this upcoming revelation from Charlie Sheen come as a shock, or is this something you might have expected all along? After all, Sheen is known for his sexual dalliances with a bevy of women, as well as for drug use.
