Filed under: Charlie SheenSad SadHealthSick

Former porn star Bree Olson says she doesn't have the disease.

On Monday, news broke that Charlie Sheen would be opening up to Matt Lauer about a "revealing personal announcement" during Tuesday's installment of the Today show.

Media outlets immediately began speculating that the 50-year-old's big secret is that he is HIV-positive.

But on Friday — days before word of any sort of news — the actor's ex-girlfriend Bree Olson took to her website to explain she does not have the disease, writing:

"There are speculations circling that one of my ex boyfriends from years ago may have contracted the HIV virus. They are rumors and I know nothing more than anyone else. I, myself have been to my gynecologist at least once a year since we split up and have always been tested across the board for everything and have came back clean across the board every time."

The former porn star didn't specifically mention the Anger Management alum, and even insisted that she is in the dark about his reported diagnosis:

"Call me Jon Snow. I know nothing."

The 29-year-old had lived with the Two and a Half Men star in 2011, after he was fired from the popular sitcom.

And the blonde beauty isn't the only one of the New York native's former flames who is supposedly HIV-negative. A source revealed that his ex-wife Denise Richards and their two kids are not infected with the virus.

Hollywood crisis manager Howard Bragman also claims to have known about Charlie's diagnosis.

Charlie Sheen is getting ready to make a "revealing personal announcement" to Matt Lauer on the Today show on Tuesday, and many people are speculating the 50-year-old is HIV-positive.

Now, a source has revealed to Access Hollywood that the actor's ex-wife Denise Richards has known for a "number of years" that the New York native had been diagnosed with the disease.

The insider explained the 44-year-old and the two kids she shares with the Anger Management alum are not infected with the virus because the troubled star contracted it after their divorce in 2006.

The confidante also added the actress and her ex have "not been intimate" since they ended their relationship. In fact, it seems as though they aren't even on good terms, since Charlie bashed her on Twitter earlier this year.

But it turns out his former flame isn't the only one who knew about the illness.

Hollywood crisis manager Howard Bragman told People he was also aware of the famous father's struggle with HIV, saying:

This is the perfect karma!

After Martin Shkreli and his company Turing Pharmaceuticals bought a drug called Daraprim last month and jacked up its price from $13.50 per pill to $750, the Internet exploded with outrage.

The drug, which is used mostly for patients with HIV/AIDS, become unaffordable for virtually everyone in its intended market overnight, and Shkreli became a national villain — one whom it turns out was pretty creepy in his personal life, too.

Now, though, Imprimis Pharmaceuticals has taken up the cause by making a significantly cheaper generic alternative to the drug — and it's only going to cost patients $1 per pill!

The Imprimis Cares program is set to make drugs similar to Daraprim far more affordable to consumers. According to CEO Mark L. Baum:

Hedge Funder Buys Rights To AIDS Medication & Immediately Raises The Price From $13.50 To $750 Per Pill!

no title

This seems pretty deplorable to us…

Martin Shkreli is a former hedge fund manager who is currently the CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals, but he may be even more infamous now not for his success in business, but rather his shady way of treating his patients.

That's because the 32-year-old just purchased the rights to a 62-year-old drug called Daraprim and immediately gouged the price from $13.50 a pill to an unbelievable $750!

That's over a 5000% jump overnight!

Related: Jared Fogle Tries To Avoid Jail Time With Medical Excuse!

What makes the price fluctuation even more despicable is that the people who rely on Daraprim are AIDS patients and infants, so Martin is hurting people who are already struggling.

The big pharma businessman has spoken up for himself after the change, saying that the medical world is in need of a better version of the drug — even though AIDS doctors have claimed otherwise — and said he purchased the rights to Daraprim in order to help society.

We get that he may have needed to raise the price a little in order to turn some sort of a profit… but how could multiplying the price by over 55 times be at all justifiable?!

Ch-ch-check out Martin's attempt to defend himself Monday on CNBC (below)!!!

Fired PR Exec Justine Sacco Says She 'Really Suffered' After Unfunny AIDS Tweet… And Still Defends It!

Filed under: Sad SadTwitterBookzGIFs

Hmm… we wonder if she ever thought about how much people with AIDS, as well as their friends and family have really suffered.

You may remember Justine Sacco. She's the former IAC PR exec who was on her way to a vacation in South Africa last December, and tweeted:

"Going to Africa. Hope I don't get AIDS. Just kidding! I'm white."

[ Related: PR Executive Fired After "Hateful" Tweets On AIDS & Africa Go Viral! See Her Apology HERE! ]

Well, she was promptly fired, and has been featured in a new book, called So You've Been Publicly Shamed, authored by Jon Ronson. The author is sympathetic with Sacco, but it doesn't make a ton of sense.

Especially considering she defends her horrible 'joke.'

In her section of the book, Justine explains
