"An Audience with Charlie Sheen" at The Theatre Royal Drury Lane, interviewed by Piers Morgan on June 19, 2016. (

Charlie Sheen is suing the National Enquirer for the publication of an article suggesting he sodomised tragic actor Corey Haim when he was 13.

The piece ran on November 8 and Sheen quickly dismissed it.

"Charlie Sheen categorically denies these allegations," a representative for the "Platoon" star told The Hollywood Reporter.

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 their 1986 coming-of-age drama "Lucas."

Haim's mother also shot down reports, 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 Haim would be stunned by the story is he was still alive: "If my son was here to hear all of this, he would throw up."

According to the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Sheen points out Corey's mother denied it.

He's suing the Enquirer, editor Dylan Howard, and Brascia for defamation and false light.
