Charlie Sheen sued the National Enquirer Friday for publishing a story that alleged the "Two and a Half Men" actor sexually abused the late Corey Haim when he was 13-years-old.
Actor Dominick Brascia told the publication that Sheen sexually abused Haim on the set of their 1986 movie "Lucas." The story also quoted an anonymous source claiming Sheen, then 19, "bullied the child actor into a vulnerable position for sex."
Sheen said the story was part of an "egregious, hurtful and disgusting campaign of defamations."
"With calculated malice and the National Enquirer has concluded that it can make money by running false and salacious stories claiming that Mr. Sheen is a sexual molester that preys on young pubescent boys," said the lawsuit obtained by TMZ.
The lawsuit also states Dylan Howard, the Enquirer's editor-in-chief, published the story as his way of getting revenge on the actor for not getting the exclusive on Sheen's HIV-positive status.
