Shocking news out of Hollywood today, as a new report from The National Enquirer claims that Charlie Sheen raped late actor Corey Haim.
The latter would have been just 13 years old at the time.
The alleged abuse took place on the set of the 1986 film Lucas, in which Haim co-starred with Sheen.
"Haim told me he had sex with Sheen when they filmed Lucas," actor Dominick Brascia tells the Enquirer in an interview published moments ago.
"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 adds.
Brascia tells the tabloid that shortly before Haim's untimely death at the age of 38, the actor began speaking openly about the abuse he suffered at Sheen's hands.
“Haim told me he had sex with Sheen again,” Brascia says.
Haim, according to the author's bombshell expose, "claimed he didn’t like it and was finally over. He said Charlie was a loser.”
Reports of Haim suffering sexual abuse as a minor have been circulating for years, and at one point, Brascia was falsely identified as his rapist.
The Enquirer claims to have conducted an "exhaustive probe" into Sheen's alleged abuse, meanwhile.
Gathering testimony from more than 100 individuals who say they have knowledge of the actor's sexual misconduct, they aren't likely to retract the story.
Says one Haim confidant who prefers to remain anonymous:
“Corey was so confused by the sexual encounter he believed, like so many victims, he was ‘in love’ with his abuser."
A former friend of Sheen's tells The Enquirer that the actor admitted to intercourse with Haim, but claims the sex was consensual.
Of course, if Brascia's timeline is accurate, then the sexual encounter occurred when Haim was not at an age where he was able to give consent.
The allegations are consistent with a situation that Haim's lifelong friend, Corey Feldman, described in a 2013 memoir.
“At some point during the filming [of ‘Lucas,’ Haim] explained an adult male convinced him it was perfectly normal for older men and younger boys in the business to have sexual relations, that it was ‘what all guys do.'"
Feldman never mentioned Sheen by name, but he did reveal his feelings toward the controversial Two And a Half Men star in a 2011 interview:
“I’m not a huge fan of Charlie Sheen…especially the way he’s affected other people that I know," Feldman said at the time.
Feldman has long maintained that sexual abuse is "the number one problem" in Hollywood, and the events of recent weeks have sadly proven the actor right.
Currently, Sheen has yet to comment on the allegations against him.
