Charlie Sheen settles defamation case with Enquirer


Charlie Sheen and bosses at U.S. tabloid the National Enquirer have reportedly reached a deal in the actor’s defamation case.

Sheen sued the Enquirer late last year over a published story, which suggested he had raped tragic actor Corey Haim on the set of the 1986 movie Lucas – when he was 13.

Appalled Charlie denied the story, which ran on 8 November (17).

The article featured allegations from former actor Dominick Brascia, who claimed his late friend Haim told him he had anal sex with Sheen on the set of the coming-of-age drama.

Haim’s mother also shot down reports of the alleged sexual assault, insisting she was with her son throughout the film shoot and she’s convinced Sheen did nothing wrong.

“My son never mentioned Charlie, we never talked about Charlie,” Judy Haim told Entertainment Tonight, revealing the Lost Boys star would have been stunned by the story is he was still alive: “If my son was here to hear all of this he would throw up.”

Charlie was suing the Enquirer, editor Dylan Howard, and Brascia for defamation and false light, but according to documents filed in Los Angeles late last week (ends16Mar18) and obtained by TMZ, Sheen’s lawyers are asking for the suit to be dismissed.

Sources tell the outlet both sides were fully satisfied with the terms.
