A representative for Charlie Sheen has released a statement denying that the actor sexually assaulted Corey Haim when he was 13-years old on the set of Lucas. The statement comes after the National Enquirer broke a story with over a dozen sources that claim Sheen raped Haim and then had a sexual relationship with the young actor afterwards. Though Sheen's name has never been released publicly, many Hollywood insiders have been privy to the knowledge for decades.
The former Two and Half Men star worked with Corey Haim on the 1986 movie Lucas and Dominick Brascia, a friend of Haim's, told the National Enquirer that Haim confided in him before he died, saying that Charlie Sheen raped Corey Haim. An anonymous source claiming to be close friends with Sheen, stated that the two actors had a consensual sexual relationship and that no sexual assault took place. However, in Corey Feldman's memoir, he recounts a similar story, careful not to use Sheen's name. He states that a man working on the film forced himself on the Haim, and claimed that it was "perfectly normal" for older men to have sexual relations with a young boy.
A representative for Charlie Sheen spoke out after more news outlets began to pick up the story. Although the National Enquirer isn't the most reputable publication on the planet, a statement was still made nevertheless. The short statement was released to The Hollywood Reporter.
"Charlie Sheen categorically denies these allegations."
While Charlie Sheen is denying the allegations of rape and homosexuality, court papers during his messy divorce from Denise Richards hinted at the star's appetite for different types of pornography. Sheen reportedly called Richards a "prude" and told her to turn her head while he watched things that offended her.
Out of those images that offended Denise Richards were pictures of girls that posed with braces and pigtails, looking much younger than they were. Charlie Sheen was also accused of hitting on and having sexual relations with underage girls during the filming of Lucas. Richards also noted that Sheen watched gay pornography with "very young men" and threatened to cut off her head if she ever told anybody about his private habits. The divorce papers, which are public record, certainly do not help Sheen's case.
Charlie Sheen is usually pretty vocal on matters that affect him, so it's kind of out of character that he has not taken to Twitter or calling in to a TV show to blast these current allegations towards him. Corey Feldman released a lengthy statement this afternoon that did not mention Charlie Sheen by name, but implied that whomever the A-list celebrity is might try and have him killed since there are plenty of instances regarding death threats connected to the former the star.
