Charlie Sheen has spent millions in his desperate bid to keep his HIV-positive status from leaking out. However, The National ENQUIRER broke details of the cover-up scandal on Monday.

According to the publication, 50-year-old Sheen gave one sex partner a financial settlement, which included a home in Los Angeles, to keep his secret safe. And a number of women are currently involved in lawsuits concerning his infection.

One source close to Sheen claims he has given at least $5 million in hush money to his potential victims.

Sheen's ex-fiancée, adult film star Scottine Ross, blasted, "I don't ever want to see that guy's face again, unless it's in a f----ing courtroom!"

The National ENQUIRER reported that Ross accused Sheen of possibly exposing her to HIV. And as RadarOnline.com reported in October, Ross was demanding $5 million as part of a hefty payoff following their split.

A close friend of Sheen revealed the actor "thought he was indestructible and took no precautions — even though he was indulging in high-risk sex practices."

Sheen was once the highest-paid star on television and he's currently worth a reported $125 million.
