Actor Charlie Sheen says he “absolutely denies” the claim made by late actor Corey Haim’s friend Dominick Brascia that Sheen raped Haim on the set of their 1986 film Lucas—when Sheen was 19 and Haim was 13.
Brascia’s claims were published in The National Enquirer (the same outlet that occasionally breaks “real” news, such as Sheen’s HIV-positive status and John Edwards’ extramarital affair), and were backed up by two other anonymous sources in the piece. Their stories, The National Enquirer writes, are strikingly similar to this passage from Corey Feldman’s 2013 autobiography, Coreyography:
“At some point [while filming 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.’ So they walked off to a secluded area between two trailers during a lunch break for the cast and crew, and Haim, innocent and ambitious as he was, allowed himself to be sodomized.”
Jezebel wrote about Sheen’s long history of abuse back in 2011.
And now, Jeremy Piven. People has an exclusive interview with an advertising executive named Tiffany Bacon Scourby who claims Piven assaulted her back in 2003.
After meeting at a “work event,” Piven allegedly invited Scourby to a taping of Late Night With Conan O’Brien the following day. She accepted, and met him at his hotel the next morning. While waiting for his publicist to arrive, Scourby says Piven “jumped on top” of her, “forced” her to the ground, and began “rubbing [his exposed genitals] against her body.”
She says she remained clothed the entire 15 minutes of her time in his suite but “he held down my hands” and ejaculated “all over my white turtleneck.”
Scourby says she then pushed Piven off her, ran outside for a cab, and “cried the entire way back to [her] hotel.”
Piven tells People none of this happened.
The mother of a young man who claims Kevin Spacey sexually assaulted him last summer went on Today this morning to tell their story. After the incident, the 18-year-old called his mother, Heather Unruh, “in the middle of the night” and said, “Mom, Kevin Spacey tried to rape me.”
He told Unruh that “very embarrassed about” the incident and didn’t want to report it to the police—a heartbreakingly familiar story.
