Not even 24 hours have passed since Charlie Sheen publicly revealed that he is living with HIV, and at least six women are lawyered up with plans in place to sue the actor for various charges — and that is just the beginning.
According to TMZ, the women are already lined up to sue the Anger Management star for intentional infliction of emotional distress, fraud, and sexual battery. The number is expected to rise. A source directly connected to the actor said that in the last two years, he had a minimum of 200 sexual partners.
Out of the current six women, they all claim they had both protected and unprotected sex with the actor, some as recently as last month, and they claim he kept his HIV status a secret the entire time. In many states throughout the U.S., it is a crime to not reveal one's HIV status prior to engaging in the act of sexual intercourse, with California being one of them.
This is sure to be the beginning of a long — and potentially scandalous — journey for Sheen. Watch Wendy Williams' recap of the big news, below:
