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.

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:

Danny was honored with the Courage Award for coming out as HIV+ and subsequently fighting the stigma that comes along with the diagnosis.

The 39-year-old's on-screen stepdad housekeeper was selected to present him the award, and we bet it was an amazing experience for the two to share.

We hadn't really heard if Tony was accepting of Danny's news until now, so it's nice to see he's still by his side when it counts!

Congrats on the win, Danny!
