Honey Boo Boo Star Confesses They Are HIV Positive
Lee Thompson, better known as Uncle Poodle on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, revealed that he is HIV positive to Fenuxe magazine in Atlanta. He said, "On March 16, 2012, I tested negative. Then, in May of 2012 my test results came back positive. I knew it had been my boyfriend who infected me. I later learned he had been HIV positive and was not taking medication and had not bothered to tell me about it. I was advised that I should press charges and, hesitantly, I did. It was the right thing to do."
