Charlie Sheen has denied raping 13-year-old Corey Haim
Charlie Sheen has been accused of raping child star Corey Haim.
Haim was “tricked into engaging in a painful session of anal sex” with Sheen on a film set, his friend, former child actor Corey Feldman, has alleged.
Feldman alleged that Sheen raped Haim, who died in 2010, during the filming of Lucas in 1986.
Sheen was 19 and Haim was 13, thus the incident would have been deemed statutory rape.
Feldman has accused a number of Hollywood figures of sexually assaulted child stars, going to the police department in Los Angeles, who so far have not made any arrests but say they are investigating the claims.
The allegation of sexual assault joins a number of other allegations that have come out in recent months.
Alleged victims have accused multiple Hollywood figures – including Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey – of sexual misconduct.
Some of these victims were underage during the time of the alleged assaults.
In his 2013 memoir, Coreyography, Feldman wrote about an incident involving an older man pressuring a younger boy into sex, but did not mention the man’s name.
“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’,” he wrote.
“Haim, innocent and ambitious as he was, allowed himself to be sodomised.”
Feldman appeared on The Dr Oz Show recently to publicise his efforts to fund the “Truth Campaign”, a film which will detail what happened in his childhood, and aims to expose Hollywood stars.
Actor Dominick Brascia has also claimed Haim told him about his sexual encounters with Sheen.
“Haim said after it happened Sheen became very cold and rejected him. When Corey wanted to fool around again, Charlie was not interested,” he said.
Brascia also alleged that Sheen and Haim had consensual sex years later, but Haim said he “didn’t like it and was finally over Sheen”.
In Feldman’s memoir, he details the sexual abuse he and Haim suffered as young actors in the film industry.
And in a recent post, Feldman voiced support for women who have come forward with allegations of sexual abuse in the film industry, saying he was “forever grateful” to the women spoke out about the Harvey Weinstein allegations.
Since these allegations, a claim about child porn from Sheen’s ex-wife Denise Richards, which came from their 2005 divorce proceedings, has resurfaced.
Richards alleged that she found out Sheen was watching gay porn that appeared to involve boys who “looked underage”.
She wrote: “I told him about websites I discovered that he accessed involving gay pornography, also involving very young men who also did not look like adults.”
Sheen did not deny these allegations when confronted by Richards, she claimed.
“He reiterated that there was nothing wrong with the sites that he was accessing and that I needed to ‘turn my head’ and ignore it.”
Speaking about the alleged rape of Haim, a spokesman for Sheen said that he “categorically denies these allegations.”
