We really hope this isn't the case.
Following the news that Charlie Sheen will sit down with Matt Lauer on Tuesday morning to divulge some very personal information, speculation over the actor's health reached an all time high.
Sheen's abnormal absence from social media (the father of three hasn't tweeted since October 28) and his lack of public appearances have understandably caused fans to worry.

In light of the speculation, tabloids like the National Enquirer have suggested that the Anger Management star is suffering from HIV. While the disease is now manageable thanks to advances in modern medicine, the diagnosis is still devastating and very difficult to deal with.
The Enquirer's explosive cover suggests Charlie has "spent millions" to cover-up his illness. The mag also questions who C.S. may have infected.
Wow. While we don't want this to be true, it wouldn't be too surprising given the mega-star's admitted drug use and penchant for porn stars. Maybe the 50-year-old is finally ready to come clean about his health.
If Charlie is infected with HIV, he'll be the second star this year to come forward with the sad news. A few months back Who's The Boss? star Danny Pintauro revealed he's HIV positive.
So, will YOU be tuning in to tomorrow's interview?
