Here is another of what’s known as “Hollywood Open Secrets”—something that has circulated amongst the industry and blind item gossip columns for many years, but that nobody ever officially reported. The National Enquirer has just run a story in which actor Charlie Sheen has been accused of having sex with Lucas co-star Corey Haim when the former was 19 and the latter was 13.
Corey Feldman has been saying that his friend and occasional co-star Haim had been abused when he was a child for a long time—even calling out in his autobiography Coreyography the movie Lucas as the backdrop for Haim’s abuse.
Per The Daily Mail:
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 wrote.
‘So they walked off to a secluded area between two trailers during a lunch break for the cast and crew,’ continued Feldman,’ and Haim, innocent and ambitious as he was, allowed himself to be sodomized.’ Feldman never named Sheen as the man in the incident.
Now former actor Dominick Brascia, who describes himself as a close friend of the late Haim, has alleged that the “adult male” from the Feldman memoir was none other than Sheen:
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.
Let’s remind ourselves how young Haim was and looked at the time of this alleged sexual encounter:
As of this writing, Sheen has not issued any statement regarding the Enquirer story.
But the question has to be asked: if he did indeed commit this act against a minor…who taught Sheen that this was “normal behavior?” How far down the rabbit hole does this legacy of abuse and exploitation go?
