Charlie Sheen, HIV, a Tabloid and My Insane 2- Year Hunt for a Story. This story first appeared in the April 2. Creative Muvo 64Mb Driver. The Hollywood Reporter magazine.

Online, I was used to rubbing celebrities the wrong way.
Sometimes they get mad, ordering a public relations flunky or manager to get in touch with a self- righteous denial. Sometimes they threaten litigation. But this was different. This was insane. I picked up on the third ring, and he launched straight into it. Charlie Sheen: the man with whom I had enjoyed a working relationship for more than three years, since before his dismissal from Two and a Half Men — and subsequent meltdown — had made him the hottest source of copy in my career. What had happened? Last time we had spoken, things had been amicable.
Now, barely drawing breath, he ranted on: . You want to fucking, like, sit over there and fucking insult my fucking gal like this? Come to my fucking house today. What was the last big story we'd run on Sheen? Dig them up and hug their decaying corpses. You fucking hurt the last fucking thing you should hurt.
One more story, bro, and you'll wake up looking into my fucking eyes, you fucking whore pig. A story so big, it would change both our lives forever. Fourteen months later, the Enquirer broke that story: Sheen was HIV positive. Not only that — he had known for four years.
His wild lifestyle likely had exposed countless girlfriends, models, porn stars and prostitutes to unspeakable risk. It also was a story of extraordinary corruption, violence, lies, intimidation, death threats and millions of dollars paid out in hush money — a story that only now can be told. I entered Charlie's orbit in October 2. After a journalism career in Australia and at Reuters in New York, I had joined Radar. Online to head up the entertainment website.
Sheen, now 5. 0, already was big news — as the star of Two and a Half Men, he was the highest- paid TV actor in the world, with a well- documented history of hard partying and domestic violence. He had spent the previous Christmas Day in jail after police were called to an address in Aspen, Colo., by his third wife, Brooke Mueller, who accused him of choking her and putting a knife to her throat. Charlie was charged with second- degree assault, menacing and criminal mischief. In 1. 99. 7, he had pleaded no contest to a charge of assault on former girlfriend Brittany Ashland, and in a sworn declaration during their 2. Denise Richards declared Sheen to be unstable, violent and addicted to gambling and pornography.
She also claimed he assaulted her, shoving her to the ground and screaming, . A woman once propositioned by the star had given Charlie's cellphone number to a source of mine — and soon I had a perfect opportunity to use it. On Oct. 2. 6, during what was supposed to be a vacation at New York's Plaza Hotel with ex- wife Denise and their two daughters, Charlie lost it again. After a wild party in his suite with porn star Christina Walsh (aka Capri Anderson), the actress called security in a panic. Sheen had gone crazy, she said. He was drunk, high on cocaine.
He had locked her in the bathroom and trashed the room. He was yelling that she had stolen his $1.
Patek Philippe watch, and she was afraid for her own safety. The cops arrived. Charlie was taken to a hospital for psychiatric evaluation.
And as the story made its rounds, it was my texts he eventually replied to. There were credible allegations that he was using drugs again — specifically, crack cocaine. Sheen was furious. Lies are the fuels that cowards drink. If you want to call our bluff, we will fly to wherever you are and do the test and report if you are clean or not. If you want to prove the detractors wrong, then let's do this. Plus, I get to film it.
Who do you think you are? I was there to conduct an interview and to witness two drugs tests — a home urine test and a blood test conducted by a court- certified California laboratory technician — covering marijuana, cocaine, opiates, amphetamines and alcohol. He greeted me with a bear hug. Let's bury these naysayers. Let's make these trolls and fools go away forever. Let's meet it head- on. You were in it to win it.
With everything going on, I decided it was the right thing to do, and I found a guy who was as excited about it and who was as intense about it as I was, and I knew we were the right team to handle this.
