Charlie Sheen’s former PA, Steve Han, has spoken out about the Hollywood star’s hard-partying lifestyle a week after the actor revealed he was HIV-positive.
Han, 34, worked with for two and a half years from early 2011 and accompanied him on many of his luxury trips, including those where Sheen as joined by a handful of porn stars.
Recalling the moment he knew something wasn’t right with the actor, he says it was when Sheen accidentally cut his leg with a knife and blood began to pour out.
When a friend went to reach for it, shouting, “That’s tiger blood,” the actor quickly stopped interjected and yelled at him not to touch it.
Following a trip to Mexico in December 2012, Sheen finally told Han about his diagnosis.
“I f**ked up,” he’s reported to have said when he asked him if he knew how he’d contracted it.
“He wanted to reassure me that he’s got the right doctor and he was being looked after. For him it isn’t a death sentence,” Han added to the Daily Mail.
“I felt horrible, I felt like I knew a secret that only a handful of people knew on this entire planet.”
The 34-year-old says he helped remind the actor when to take his medication and made sure he never missed any.
He also arranged his blood tests and remembers the time he had one in February 2013 which came back showing the HIV was undetectable.
Han also claims the actor carried on his party lifestyle and was taking drugs – including crack cocaine – and spending time with porn stars while he was working with him.
“Yes there were porn stars, sometimes four at a time, but it wasn’t as if Charlie was having sex in front of his staff, he kept that private.
“I used to see him taking drugs in his room and in the party den and he drank Scotch and chain smoked.”
Charlie’s former PA also says he would spend more than $200 on tubes of Aquaphor healing ointment, which he alleges Charlie used as sex lube.
While talking about how generous his former boss was, he added: “‘I’d call and get him to wire $20,000 to a girl. And sometimes they didn’t even have sex, they just hung out with Charlie. He was very generous with every one, including his staff.”
