NEW YORK, Nov 17 (Reuters) - Former "Two and A Half Men" star Charlie Sheen said on Tuesday he is HIV positive.

Sheen, 50, told NBC's "Today" show in a television interview that he was diagnosed about four years ago.

"I am here to admit I am HIV positive," Sheen said. "It's a hard three letters to absorb."

Sheen, who is three times divorced, played the womanizing bachelor Charlie Harper on top-rated U.S. comedy series "Two and A Half Men" for eight years before being fired in 2011 for bad behavior that included cocaine-fueled partying with porn stars and a conviction for assaulting his ex-wife.
