Yesterday we got the unsettling story about how a 19-year-old Charlie Sheen allegedly raped a 13-year-old Corey Haim on the set of the 1986 film Lucas. Charlie Sheen has something to say about it and unsurprisingly, it’s a denial.
Dominick Brascia told The National Enquirer that Corey told him about what happened with Charlie Sheen. The National Enquirer claims that dozens of sources they spoke to named Charlie Sheen as Corey Haim’s alleged rapist. A rep for Charlie Sheen gave the following statement to The Hollywood Reporter yesterday:
“Charlie Sheen categorically denies these allegations.”
Charlie’s rep tells People magazine much of the same, saying: “He absolutely denies the claim.”
Corey Haim’s friend Corey Feldman recently contacted the LAPD regarding his claims of having a whole list of pedos. There’s no word on if one of the names is that of Charlie Sheen’s.
Maybe a denial is all Charlie Sheen is required to give right now? I can’t help but think Charlie Sheen half-assed it. I mean, he’s said more words when apologizing to Ashton Kutcher after dragging him on Twitter than he has in those statements. I’ve never been accused of anything anywhere near as dark as what Dominick Brascia told The National Enquirer, but I know something that heavy requires a little more effort than the PR equivalent of “Nope.”
