Diane Reeve was horrified when she found out that her love rat boyfriend had infected her with AIDS.
But Reeve has told The National ENQUIRER in an exclusive interview that she’s battled back from the brink of death and wants Philippe Padieu to know, “You didn’t kill me like you wanted to!” Between 2004 and 2007, Reeve and several other women had sex with Padieu and they said he knowingly infected them with the HIV virus.
In May 2009, Padieu was convicted in a Texas court of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon for infecting the women. He was later sentenced to 45 years in prison.
Now brave Reeve tells The ENQUIRER how she met Padieu online after her marriage ended and she thought he was her dream man – until she discovered the numbers of many other women on his phone. When Reeve called one of the ladies, the woman told her she was HIV positive and believed Padieu had infected her.
Reeve, now 63, who says Padieu had told her he was HIV-negative, got tested and was devastated to find out she had full-blown AIDS.
But now, the levels of the disease in her blood are barely detectable and she crows, “I am alive and it feels so good!”
