Charlie Sheen faces barrage of lawsuits from 'partners' after confirming he has HIV

Charlie Sheen confirmed he is HIV-positive in an interview with the Today show's Matt Lauer Tuesday morning
Charlie Sheen is facing a number of lawsuits and being attacked by former partners after revealing he is HIV-positive.
Just hours after Sheen told Matt Lauer on Today that he has had the virus for 'roughly four years' and informed all of his sexual partners since that time, the actor's former girlfriend Bree Olson made an appearance on The Howard Stern Show telling a very different story.
She claimed that Sheen never once revealed to her that he is HIV-positive, and said later in a separate interview; 'He's a monster.'
Shortly after Olson appeared on Stern's show another one of Sheen's sexual partners, Natalie Kenly, came forward to say that the actor never told her either that he is HIV-positive. 
Sources close to Sheen tell TMZ that he did not find out he is HIV-positive until May 2011, at which time he was no longer with Olson - though he was still dating Kenly.

'I could be dead right now! I could literally be dead right now because he did not tell me that!' said Olson on Inside Edition in a two-part interview that will air on Tuesday and Wednesday nights.
She then added; "He says he found out when him and I were together. I was living in his house. We were having sex every single night.'
Olson, 29, went on to say that Sheen even went so far as to tell her he was 'clean,' and used lambskin condoms when they were together, which provide less protection than latex condoms and do not protect against viral sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV.

'He used this word: I'm clean. I'm clean and - I know... but I believed him,' said Olson.
'It was like playing Russian Roulette. That's the best way to put it. It was like putting a gun to my head and pulling the trigger each time.' 

'He's a monster,' said an emotional Olson in an interview with Inside Edition on Tuesday

Olson later said in the interview; 'I would never do to anyone what Charlie did to me. That is giving someone a possible death sentence. I would never do that to someone ever.'
As for her message to Sheen, she said; 'Charlie, you're a terrible person. You're a terrible person. I will never forgive you.'
She was tested on Monday and is not HIV-positive. 
Kenly and Olson were both with Sheen at the same time, and he referred to the women as his 'goddesses.'
Kenly told TMZ she is not HIV-positive and is not upset with Sheen. She also said that she does not plain to file a lawsuit against the actor.
In the state of California it is a felony punishable by up to eight years in prison for a person to have unprotected sex with someone with the intent to infect them and not disclose their status. It is also a misdemeanor to willfully expose someone to HIV, though that carries a prison sentence of just a few months. 
TMZ is reporting that already six of Sheen's former sexual partners are planning to sue the actor for 'intentional infliction of emotional distress, fraud, sexual battery.' 
Some of these women are alleging they have had both protected and unprotected sex with Sheen as recently as a month ago.
Radar Online meanwhile has spoken to a source close to an attorney who said one individual had had sex just this past week with Sheen, and that he did not reveal his status.
'And a second individual claims they had sex with Charlie three weeks ago,' said the source.
'All of these people say they were not notified by Charlie about his HIV status and now they want settlements.' 
InTouch obtained the non-disclosure agreement that Sheen makes guests at his house sign.
If an individual breaks the agreement it states they must pay Sheen $100,000, and a percentage of any money they may have received for the information they shared.
The document also states that any matter will be decided by an arbitrator - and not in a court of law. 

His doctor, Robert Huizenga, said on Today that the virus is now 'undetectable' in Sheen's blood, but that does not mean he is incapable of infecting other people..
Sheen also said that he was 'not entirely' sure how he contracted the virus and that he felt a huge sense of relief after publicly revealing his status. 

Sheen admitted to Lauer that at one point a prostitute came to his home and after a sexual encounter took a photograph of his antiviral medication. She then threatened to sell it to the tabloids.
'After I told her, "Thank you for your time, we're not going to see each other any more,"' explained Sheen.
'It was after she spent the day at the health food store buying me herbal medications to help me.' 
When asked if he was still paying anyone for their silence, Sheen said; 'Not after today I'm not.'
He then said; 'I think I release myself from this prison today.'
