Former South African International Benni McCarthy has been diagnosed with HIV, it has been claimed.
A source told the newspaper: “It has now become common knowledge that this star is HIV positive, something he has known for a number of years. He added that, it’s only a matter of time before that becomes public.”
The source continued: “Obviously it would be a huge story, but the reality is HIV is entirely treatable in this day and age and shouldn’t impact his ability to lead a normal life.”
It is also reported that friends of the star have suggested he publicly confront the situation, but he’s refused as he’s paranoid his future defined by it.
