The UK Mirror reports that a high-profile Hollywood star has been diagnosed with HIV.
The unnamed actor reportedly has a long list of exes who include a TV star, a glamour model, an award-winning actress, a religious movie star, a top Hollywood personality and more.
His lawyers are said to be aware of the situation and are preparing for a handful of potential legal claims. A reliable source told them: “It has now become common knowledge that this star is HIV positive, something he has known for a number of years. His lawyers are bracing for the threat of potential action.
“The reality is that if he’s knowingly put women at risk then that’s disgusting and it’s only a matter of time before that becomes public.”
Other high-profile stars who are living with HIV, which weakens the immune system and can develop into AIDS, include NBA star Magic Johnson and Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s Holly Johnson.More recently, Danny Pintauro – who starred as Jonathan Bower in hit show Who’s The Boss? from 1984 to 1992 – revealed he had been carrying the HIV virus for 12 years. Around 100,000 people are living with HIV in the UK, with roughly two thirds of people living with it being men and a third women, according to the National Aids Trust.
