Charlie Sheen's former girlfriend says he wouldn't knowingly have exposed his sexual partners to HIV.
The 50-year-old actor has revealed he was secretly diagnosed as HIV positive four years ago, insisting he has informed all of his subsequent sexual partners of his illness, and his ex Natalie Kenly, 29, said she doesn't believe he would have put anyone at risk on purpose.
She told PEOPLE: "He is not a monster. He has regard for human beings and cares about people. I do not see him knowingly putting women at risk. He's got young kids. He's also not an idiot and I don't see him opening himself up to that legal nightmare."
Natalie - who says she is HIV negative - was one of Charlie's "goddesses" in 2011 and although she has not discussed his illness with him, she publicly sent him good wishes.
She said: "He loved us all. He cares. He's a good man and I feel very fortunate to have spent the time with him that I did, and I'm so sad to hear of his health troubles. I hope he's okay."
Another of Charlie's "goddesses", Bree Olson, revealed that she has been tested for HIV.
The 29-year-old porn star underwent the test on Monday (16.11.15) one day ahead of Charlie, revealing he has been living with the illness for the past four years.
Bree tweeted: "Recorded myself for half an hour being tested for HIV and getting the results. This is so stressful. (sic)"
She also wrote in a blog post: "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 (sic)."
