Many celebrities are too wild for life. They contract STDs and are not upfront about it. Many of the celebrities on this list even got sued for knowingly infecting others. Here are top 10 male celebrities with STD.
1. Bill Clinton (Herpes):
Pictures have been floating around showing Clinton being a carrier of the Herpes Virus. He was a pictured with an open sore which is a sign of oral herpes. One cannot help but thing where he could have gotten it from? From his many mistresses perhaps?
2. Magic Johnson (HIV):
This retired professional basketball player announced that he has contracted HIV in 1991 after having multiple sex partners throughout his basketball career. This forced him into temporary retirement until 1992. Due to pressures, he retired again in 1996. He founded the Magic Johnson Foundation to combat HIV/AIDS.
Fast forward twenty-one years after his retirement from the Los Angeles Lakers because of HIV, Magic” Johnson is a symbol of hope for more than a million Americans living with this deadly disease. Johnson is now a successful businessman, a basketball commentator, a doting husband and a grandfather of two. Yet he’s still raising money and awareness, always working to create a better future for others.
3. David Hasselhoff (Herpes):
When Hasselhoff divorced his wife Pamela Bach in 2006, secrets came out. One juicy secret revealed that Hasselhoff has Genital Herpes, which is not curable. In fact she claimed that Hasselhoff never told about having Herpes until it was too late.
4. Keith Richards (Hepatitis C):
The famous guitarist and founder of Rolling Stones has/had STD. He contracted Hepatitis C, but according to Richard is gone due to the strength of his immune system. This is nearly impossible since Hepatitis C is not curable.
Doctors now want his body after he dies so they can study his immune system an how it faught against the Hep C virus. The medical community believes that if Keith Richards donates his body to them when he dies they will be able to figure out how to make others feel better after being diagnoses with the virus by figuring out how he been able to live a long healthy life despite his admission that he eats everything wrong.
5. Phil Lesh (Hepatitis C):
The founding member and bassist of The Grateful Dead contracted Hepatitis C in 1992. He required a liver transplant in 1998, which the STD affects and lacerates. He is now an advocate of organ donations.
6. Robin Williams (Herpes):
Although Robin Williams has never admitted it, he was sued by his ex-girlfriend for $6 million. The ex claimed that she was infected by Williams with Genital Herpes. The suit was settled out of court.
The lawsuit against Robin Williams makes us revisit the question of whether a person infected with a sexually transmitted disease has a legal responsibility to tell his/her sexual partner and to avoid behavior that might recklessly lead to transmission. In dozens of herpes lawsuits around the world, courts generally ruled in the affirmative.
But the spread of AIDS, and its death rate, has made the sexual climate even more uneasy. The Centers for Disease Control believes that over 1 million Americans are infected with H.I.V., the virus that causes AIDS. Herpes has become the country’s most prevalent sexually transmitted virus, effecting as many as 31 million Americans, 10 times as many people as were known to have had it in 1966.
7. Michael Vick (Herpes):
This American Football player also is a carrier of Herpes. A health care worker sued Vick for knowingly transmitting the STD to her. The case was settled out of court. According to the health care worker, Vick apologized for not disclosing that information.
8. David Crosby (Hepatitis):
With a history of drug abuse, it is no surprise that Crosby (legendary rock star) contracted Hepatitis C. He required a liver transplant due to the STD in 1995. He is still very active and is an advocate in finding a cure for the disease.
9. Billy Graham (Hepatitis C):
This wrestling champion also contracted Hepatitis C, which required him a liver transplant. In 2002 he received a liver transplant. The liver problems did not stop there and he had to be hospitalized quite a few time, including in 2010.
