She's got his back!

Charlie Sheen made the brave announcement that he was HIV-positive on the Today show yesterday, and while many people in Hollywood have made him the butt of the joke, Heather Locklear has been outspoken about her support for the actor.

"He's a special guy and he deserves kudos," she told our videographer as she arrived at LAX yesterday. The Melrose Place star also Instagrammed well wishes after watching the Hollywood bad boy make his brave admission to Matt Lauer. "My heart hurts. Prayers for Charlie and his family," she captioned a photo of the pair.

So what's her connection to the Anger Management star? Well, she used to be best friends with his ex-wife Denise Richards, until the Wild Things actress decided to date her ex Richie Sambora! They also co-starred on multiple episodes of Spin City together back in the day.

It's nice to see that Charlie has people who love him regardless of his problems!
