On Friday, disgraced actor Charlie Sheen filed a lawsuit against the National Enquirer, the tabloid’s editor in chief Dylan Howard, as well as fellow actor Dominick Brascia. The legal battle is Sheen’s response to the publication’s article from last month that claimed the star raped Corey Haim back in 1986 on the set of the movie Lucas.
That being said, Charlie is now suing all of the defendants mentioned above for false light and defamation and is also asking for an unlimited amount of money, recovery of his lawyer’s fees and a trial overseen by a jury.
According to court documents that have surfaced, Charlie’s legal team claims that Howard ran the shocking story about the actor sexually abusing his castmate ‘because of a personal vendetta arising after he was unable to be the first one to break the story that Mr. Sheen was HIV positive.’
Furthermore, Sheen is also accusing Brascia, who went to the publication on the record with the sexual abuse allegations of not really being a ‘reliable nor credible source.’
The court docs also read that ‘Haim’s own mother has publicly denied any sort of sexual rendezvous [between Sheen and Haim] occurred.’
The regretted actor passed away back in 2010 of pneumonia when he was no older than 38.
Judy, his mother, opened up about the entire National Enquirer article, claiming that it ‘was all made up.’
A rep for Charlie Sheen made it very clear from the very beginning that the Hollywood star ‘categorically denies the allegations.’
