Claims that Charlie Sheen had sex with the late Corey Haim when the former was 19 and the latter was 13 surfaced Wednesday afternoon, and Sheen has responded through a representative by denying it.
“Charlie Sheen categorically denies these allegations,” the Sheen representative said, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The National Enquirer published a story Wednesday quoting Dominick Brascia, a friend of Haim’s. Brascia claimed that Haim once told him of a sexual encounter with Sheen while the two filmed the 1986 film “Lucas.”
“Haim told me he had sex with Sheen when they filmed ‘Lucas,’” Brascia 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.”
Brascia went on to say that Haim also told him of a second sexual encounter with Sheen when he was in his 20s.
“Haim told me he had sex with Sheen again. He claimed he didn’t like it and was finally over Sheen. He said Charlie was a loser,” he said.
The Enquirer also cited an unnamed “Sheen confidant,” who said that Sheen admitted to a sexual relationship with Haim but said it was consensual.
Another unnamed source said Haim was “so confused by the sexual encounter he believed, like so many victims, he was ‘in love’ with his abuser.”
Social media was abuzz this afternoon, sharing screenshots of Sheen’s divorce proceedings in 2005.
Sheen’s ex-wife Denise Richards said in those documents that she was disturbed by what she perceived as Sheen’s viewing of underage gay pornography.
Corey Feldman, a fellow child star and close friend of Haim’s, told the Hollywood Reporter last year that Haim was sexually abused at the age of 11.
“Corey, his was direct rape, whereas mine was not actual rape,” Feldman said. Five years before, Feldman named pedophilia as “the big secret” in Hollywood.
“I can tell you that the No. 1 problem in Hollywood was and is and always will be pedophilia. That’s the biggest problem for children in this industry […] It’s the big secret,” he said at the time, according to ABC News.
Haim died of a drug overdose in 2010 at the age of 38.
