The former Two and A Half Men is expected to reveal his HIV status in a live interview.

Actor Charlie will reportedly sit for an interview with Today show presenter Matt Lauer for “a revealing personal announcement” about his HIV status.

This comes after week-long speculations in the media about a Hollywood actor with HIV “causing panic” within the industry.

The interview is expected to air on Tuesday morning in the US.

Sheen became a household name in his role as ‘Charlie Harper’ in the hugely successful CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men, but he was fired from the show in March 2011 after a battle with drugs and alcohol and was replaced by Ashton Kutcher.
