Corey Haim’s mother continued to reflect on her late son’s troubled past on Friday, naming the man that she believes sexually abused him.
Judy Haim, who on Thursday denied a report that Charlie Sheen had abused Haim on the set of the 1986 film “Lucas,” appeared on “The Dr. Oz Show” on Friday, saying that the man who actually abused him when he was a minor was “this guy Dominick.”
“When my son was 13, he’s not gonna go and ask Charlie Sheen to go and sleep with him,” the elder Haim said of her son, who died in 2010 at age 38.
“I have to tell you that this guy Dominick is the guy that abused my son. You know how I know that? Because my son said so. He said so on ‘The Two Coreys,’” Haim said, referencing the reality TV series that her son starred on with fellow former child actor Corey Feldman.
According to Haim, Feldman introduced the younger Haim to Dominick, possibly referring to actor Dominick Brascia, who denied abusing Haim last year. TheWrap has reached out to Brascia for comment on the interview.
A year after they were introduced, following Judy Haim’s split with her husband, Judy moved with Corey to an apartment in Studio City, California, she said on the “Dr. Oz Show” Friday.
“And all of a sudden Dominick is moving next to us. We didn’t think anything of it. Why would we think he’s something?” the elder Haim said.
However, she said that one day when her son was hanging out at Dominick’s apartment, he “called me up and he was yelling and screaming on the phone. And he says, ‘Mom, come and get me! He’s not getting off me!’”
When she arrived, Haim said she found Dominick fully dressed, sitting on her son and pinning him to the floor. Dominick relented and released Haim after Judy threatened him with a pool cue, she said.
Pressed on the nature of the alleged abuse, Judy Haim denied that it constituted rape, and would only give details about the situation by whispering in host Mahmet Oz’s ear.
“So they had a form of sex,” the host responded.
“A form of sex. Not rape,” Haim said.
“But it’s illegal to do that to a minor,” the host continued.
“Absolutely, it is,” Haim said.
“And it could scar a young man,” the host said.
“Absolutely,” Haim affirmed. The “Lost Boys” actor went on to battle addiction for many years.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight on Thursday, the elder Haim denied that Sheen abused her son — an accusation that Sheen has also denied — telling the outlet, “My son never mentioned Charlie. We never talked about Charlie. It was all made up … If my son was here to hear all of this he would throw up.”
