Actor Charlie Sheen denied an allegation that he sodomized and raped late child star Corey Haim while working together on the set of "Lucas" (1986) when Haim was just 13 years old.
Fellow actor Dominick Brascia told the National Enquirer in a report published Wednesday that Sheen coerced Haim into anal sex as a young teen.
What are the details?
Brascia told the Enquirer:
Haim told me he had sex with Sheen when they filmed 'Lucas.' 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.
A representative for Sheen told E! News, "Charlie Sheen categorically denies these allegations."
At the time of filming, Haim would have been 13 years old and Sheen would have been 19 or 20.
Haim died suddenly in 2010 at the age of 38 from pneumonia and diffuse alveolar damage.
Are others weighing in on this?
Haim's longtime best friend, fellow child actor Corey Feldman, has been outspoken in the past about child molestation and pedophilia in Hollywood.
In a statement to Radar Online, Feldman, commenting on Brasica's allegations, said, "Corey can only speak about his own experiences. He can only attest to events that he actually saw; anything he was told by other victims is merely hearsay. Unfortunately, some of them are not here to recount their horrors and all we can hope is that all abusers are held accountable."
In his 2013 memoir, "Coreyography," Feldman recounted an event that sounded quite similar to that which Brascia described to the Enquirer.
"Within hours of our first meeting, [Haim and I] found ourselves talking about 'Lucas,' the film he made in the summer of 1985, the role I had wanted for myself. At some point during the filming, he explained an adult male convinced him that 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 wrote.
"So they walked off to a secluded area between two trailers, during a lunch break for the cast and crew, and Haim, innocent and ambitious as he was, allowed himself to be sodomized," Feldman continued. "[That man] walks around, one of the most successful people in the entertainment industry, still making money hand over fist."
During a 2011 interview with Moviefone, Feldman didn't mince words when it came to admitting he wasn't Sheen's biggest fan.
"I'm not a huge fan of Charlie Sheen," Feldman said. "I don't make it my goal to ever talk badly in the press, we're all in it together, that's the way I look at it, but Charlie in particular, especially the way that he's affected other people that I know — point blank, Charlie and Corey started their careers pretty much together, and Corey fought for his entire life to recover from those early experiences and to get his life together."
