Charlie Sheen denies raping 13-year-old Corey Haim in the ’80s

Hollywood (and Gomorrah) may never be the same again. That’s because the sexual assault snowball that began rolling down the Hollywood Hills following the Harvey Weinstein scandal is still picking up speed with every twisted and revolting revelation.

Today, disgraced HIV-positive Charlie Sheen, who has already been flung to the fringes of the film industry, has been accused of raping and sodomizing his then-13-year-old co-star Corey Haim on the set of the 1986 film Lucas. Haim was a rising star who peaked with the horror classic Lost Boys. 

According to the National Enquirer (don’t laugh; the Enquirer was the paper that broke the Tiger Woods philandering story), former actor and close friend of Haim’s, Dominick Brascia, is putting Sheen on full furnace blast about how he allegedly abused Haim and then tossed him callously to the trash heap of childhood actors.

Haim told me he had sex with Sheen when they filmed Lucas,” Dominick Brascia, a former actor and a close friend of the “Lost Boys” legend, exclusively told The Enquirer. “He told me they smoked pot and had sex. He said they had anal sex. Haim said after it happened Sheen became very cold and rejected him. When Corey wanted to fool around again, Charlie was not interested.”

Charlie’s cold shoulder didn’t end the sexual relationship between the two.

But Brascia said Haim claimed he hooked up with the Wall Street star another time — when he was in his mid-to-late 20s. “Haim told me he had sex with Sheen again,” Brascia told the Enquirer. “He claimed he didn’t like it and was finally over Sheen. He said Charlie was a loser.”

Another of Sheen’s anonymous longtime friends revealed that Sheen told him about sex with Haim, but insisted that it was consensual. 

Another unnamed source refutes that claim:

Corey was so confused by the sexual encounter he believed, like so many victims, he was ‘in love’ with his abuser,” a fourth shocked source told the Enquirer. The reality was, however, Sheen bullied the child actor into a vulnerable position for sex, the insider said.

Through his publicist, Sheen emphatically denies ever having any kind of relationship with Haim or any other teen. To do so would be to admitting to rape, since Sheen was 19 at the time and Haim was 13, which is far too young to consent to sex with an adult. 

The story of Haim’s abuse was detailed by actor Corey Feldman, who has been blowing the whistle on this type of abuse for years. Feldman wrote about what Haim had told him about Sheen in a 2013 memoir, but omitted Sheen’s name from the story.
