Playing Bree Olson Claims She Learned of Charlie Sheen HIV Diagnosis via Media

Charlie Sheen was adamant during his interview on Tuesday's Today show that he told every person he had a sexual encounter with that he was HIV positive -- but his ex-girlfriend, Bree Olson, claims she was never told of his diagnosis.

Olson went on Howard Stern's Sirius radio show following the 50-year-old actorinterview, and claimed that she repeatedly had intercourse with the actor, who allegedly told her he was "clean” during the extent of their relationship. "He never said anything to me," Olson told Stern. "We had sex almost every day for a year."

The timeline of the pair’s relationship in regards to when Sheen found out he was HIV positive is murky, however. Sheen told Matt Lauer that after learning of his diagnosis roughly four years ago, he told every sexual partner since then that he was HIV positive. The 29-year-old adult film star dated and lived with Sheen in 2011, and reportedly left him in April of that year.

ET has reached out to Olson to clarify the chain of events.

Olson says she is not HIV positive, and that the first she heard of Sheen’s diagnosis was when reports started surfacing in recent days.

She says Sheen insisted they use lambskin condoms when having sex, which do not prevent the transmission of STDs, such as HIV. Olson also adds that he said he was "clean” during the extent of their relationship. Olson reportedly left Sheen in April of 2011.

Sheen did not give a definitive date as to when he found out he was HIV positive, and therefore, may not have known his diagnosis while dating Olson. 

While on Today, Sheen insisted that it was "impossible" for him to have "knowingly or even perhaps unknowingly transmitted the HIV virus to someone else." Sheen said he’s had unprotected sex with two people since he was diagnosed, and both knew of his condition and were under treatment of his doctor.

"I have to put a stop to this onslaught, this barrage of attacks of sub-truths and very, very harmful stories that are about threatening the health of so many others which couldn't be farther from the truth," Sheen said.

Sheen said he knew something was wrong when he started getting "a series of cluster headaches," and "sweating the bed." Olson told Stern that she remembers him sweating in the middle of the night but said he would blame it on using steroids. She recalled that a doctor frequently came to the house and would go with Sheen into another room for privacy.

Olson was with the actor around the time he was dismissed from Two and Half Men. During his interview with Lauer, Sheen was asked if learning of his HIV diagnosis led to "that whole tiger blood, winning period" in 2011, when Sheen’s erratic behavior and statements made headlines. "I wish I could blame it on that," he said. "That was more of a roid rage. This was on the heels of that, let me say."

Olson said she received death threats following news of the actor's HIV diagnosis, with people blaming her for transmitting the virus to the actor. If Sheen were to call her now, she told Stern she would say "f**k you" and hang up the phone.
