Charlie Sheen sues National Enquirer for libel over Corey Haim accusations of rape


Charlie Sheen accused of raping late actor Corey Haim at the age of 13

Charlie Sheen is under fire after allegations emerged that the actor raped the then 13-year-old Corey Haim during the filming of the 1986 film “Lucas.”

Charlie Sheen is suing the National Enquirer for libel after the tabloid reported the actor of sexual, former child-star Corey Haim in the 1980s.

Sheen filed the suit Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court against the tabloid, the parent company of American Media Inc., Dylan Howard, the tabloid’s chief content office and Dominick Brascia, who are against the publication, the “Two and a Half Men” star raped Haim.

Sheen was looking to “a jury trial, general and special damages in an amount proven to be during the process, exemplary, and punitive damages and the costs of the lawyer,” People reported.


The National Enquirer published an article on Nov. 8 who claimed that Sheen, who is 19-years-old at the time, raped Haim, who was 13 years old, in 1986, while on the set of the movie “Lucas.” Brascia was the source of the tabloid report.

Brascia, a good friend of Haim, told the tabloid that Haim and Shine “smoked pot and had anal sex.”

“Haim said after it happened, Sheen was very cold and rejected him. When Corey wanted to go crazy again, Charlie was not interested,” Brascia said.

Sheen, who revealed in 2015, that he is living with HIV, immediately denied the accusations following the report.


Sheen’s lawyer called the report “grossly, offensive, and disgusting campaign of slander and libel, and falsely claim that Mr. Sheen sodomized a thirteen-year-old celebrity actor Corey Haim, who is now deceased. In fact, Mr. Haim passed more than seven years ago and the conduct alleged occurred more than thirty years ago, when the Lord, the Shine was only nineteen,” the court documents stated.

The lawsuit also alleged Howard “is an active vendetta against the” Brilliance because the editor was not the first to break the story that the “Anger Management” star had HIV.

“National Enquirer states that there are hundreds of people to support these ridiculous claims, but the only person actually quoted, defendant Dominick Brascia, has itself been accused of having a sexually abused Corey Haim,” the lawsuit stated.

The lawsuit also claimed the story was painful, harmful and insulting to the Brilliance of the family.

“With calculated malice, the National Enquirer has concluded that it can earn money by performing fake and thought-provoking stories to claim that Mr. Sheen is a sexual abuse that preys on young hairy boys,” according to the court documents.

Following the report, Haim’s mother Judy Haim came forward and denied Luster raped her son.

Haim died in 2010 of pneumonia. The child actor was suffering from a drug addiction in his later career.

An AMI spokesman told the People: “We look forward to litigating against Charlie Sheen, and can’t wait to expose his depravities in a court of law.”
