HIV positive

IllnessInterview

Sheen tells Lauer on Today, that he is HIV positive, but he does not have AIDS:

I’m here to admit that I am in fact HIV Positive…It started with what I thought was a series of crushing headaches. I thought I had a brain tumor. I thought it was over. It’s a hard three letters to absorb. It’s a turning point in one’s life…[I had to speak out] to put a stop to this barrage of attacks of sub-truths and very harmful and mercurial stories that threaten the health of so many others…I have a responsibility now to better myself and help a lot of other people.

Sheen also says he has been the victim of years of blackmail, giving millions of dollars in extortion money to prostitutes with whom he had relations in hopes that they would keep his HIV status a secret.

My trust turned to their treason.

He admits having unprotected sex with two individuals, whom he says were warned beforehand and “under the care” of his doctor.He also says he’s no longer doing drugs, but still drinks “a little bit.”

Apologizes to Bush

ApologyInterview

In an interview with Lauer on The Today Show, West apologizes to Bush for saying he doesn’t care about black people

I would tell George Bush in my moment of frustration, I didn’t have the grounds to call him a racist. I believe that in a situation of high emotion like that we as human beings don’t always choose the right words.

Rape claim

Accusation

Green, a California lawyer, appears on the Today show and alleges that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her in the 1970s. Green tells Lauer that Cosby, who had given her pills to combat a fever, drove her to her apartment and began:

groping me and kissing me and touching me and handling me and … taking off my clothes.

According to Green, Cosby left two $100 bills on her coffee table afterwards. Cosby’s lawyer:

Miss Green’s allegations are absolutely false. Mr. Cosby does not know the name Tamara Green or Tamara Lucier [her maiden name], and the incident she describes did not happen. The fact that she may have repeated this story to others is not corroboration.
