When Bree Olson went on The Howard Stern Show on Tuesday, she lambasted Charlie Sheen for not revealing his HIV-positive diagnosis during her stint as one of his live-in Goddess girlfriends in the Spring of 2011.

But according to the actor’s manager Mark Burg, there was a good reason for that: Sheen, 50, was not infected at the time.

“Bree Olson is all over Howard Stern but the truth is she wasn’t in Charlie’s life when he was HIV-positive and so there was no reason to tell her anything,” Burg tells PEOPLE exclusively.

While Olson, 29, whose real name is Rachel Oberlin, lived with Sheen in early 2011, he was “100 percent HIV-negative,” says Burg, adding that the actor was in fact tested for the virus on numerous occasions around that time.

“His (diagnosis) was long after he fired Bree Olsen from the [Violent Torpedo of Truth] tour.”

Unlike Olson, former girlfriend Natalie Kenly, who overlapped with Olson as one of his Goddesses that spring, came to Sheen’s defense.

“He is not a monster,” Kenly, 29, told PEOPLE exclusively on the eve of Sheen’s bombshell interview with the Today show’s Matt Lauer.

“He has regard for human beings and cares about people. I do not see him knowingly putting women at risk.” (Kenly, who says she is HIV-negative, now lives a quiet life in the Midwest with her young daughter and long-term partner.)

As for Sheen’s well-documented partying ways, Burg reiterates what the actor told Lauer this morning: “Charlie is 100 percent drug-free and has been for months.”
