Former European Song Contest winner in 2014, Conchita Wurst, said she has HIV.
The Austrian singer said she decided to go public because her former partner had blackmailed her to reveal the news publicly.
On Instagram, Conchita wrote that she will not let anyone affect her life and that she had been with HIV for years. She added that this is irrelevant to the public but had to speak out because of her former partner.
Conchita said she received the necessary treatment and cannot pass the virus to others.
