Actor Charlie Sheen has become the latest entertainment industry icon to face allegations of pedophilia amid weeks of shocking revelations that initially started after Harvey Weinstein was outed as a serial harasser and have since spread throughout Hollywood.
According to a report by The National Enquirer, Sheen is a child molester who convinced now deceased actor Corey Haim to have sex with him on the set of the 1986 film “Lucas.”
One of the reports sources, former actor Dominick Brascia, directly claims that Haim told him about his underage sex with Sheen that happened on multiple occasions. “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,” Brascia claimed. The Enquirer report also claims that the paper has interviewed more than 100 people who have backed up the claims made by Brascia against Sheen, even going as far as to quote a longtime Sheen confidant who confirmed the sex, which would have happened between the then 19-year-old Sheen and 13-year-old Haim.
Brascia is just one of more than 100 people, spread across ten states, contacted by The ENQUIRER as part of its exhaustive probe. His horrid account — after 30-plus years of self-imposed silence — matches those of dozens of other sources who also told The ENQUIRER that Haim named Sheen, now 52 and considered a pariah in Hollywood, as his abuser before he died of pneumonia in 2010. Brascia’s testimony is specifically backed up by a longtime Sheen confidant, who told The ENQUIRER — on the condition of anonymity for fear of repercussion — the “Platoon” bad boy admitted to a liaison with Haim, but insisted it was consensual. A third individual — a convicted child sex offender — told The ENQUIRER Haim revealed sordid details about the Sheen incident when they worked together on “Lost Boys.” “Corey was so confused by the sexual encounter he believed, like so many victims, he was ‘in love’ with his abuser,” a fourth source told the paper.
The claims by Brascia seemingly line up with those made by Haim’s close friend, former child actor Corey Feldman, who wrote in 2013 that, “At some point during the filming Haim explained that 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.” “So they walked off to a secluded area between two trailers during a lunch break for the cast and crew,” Feldman continued. “And Haim, innocent and ambitious as he was, allowed himself to be sodomized.” Although Feldman never actually named Sheen, his account has many believing that he was describing what took place between Sheen and Haim.
Feldman says he and fellow child star Haim, who died of pneumonia in 2010 after years battling drug addiction, were abused by studio executives as they were making a name for themselves, including “some of the richest, most powerful people in this business.”
Feldman is raising money to fund his film, which he said will give an “honest and true depiction of child abuse” in the industry. “What I am proposing is a plan that I believe can literally change the entertainment system as we know it. And I believe that I can also bring down, potentially, a pedophile ring that I have been aware of since I was a child,” Feldman said. “Right off the bat, I can name six names, one of them who is still very powerful today. And a story that links all the way up to a studio. It connects pedophilia to one of the major studios.” A cascade of accounts by women of sexual abuse has flooded social media under the hashtag #MeToo since a scandal surrounding movie mogul Harvey Weinstein erupted last month. It prompted new calls for justice from Feldman, who took to Twitter to share his own experience of abuse in a seven-message tirade. Haim, a Canadian-Jewish teen star who died in 2010 at the age of 38, starred in a number of movies, including “Silver Bullet,” “Murphy’s Romance,” “License to Drive,” “Dream a Little Dream,” “Snowboard Academy” and, alongside Feldman, “The Lost Boys.”
