Corey Haim's mom says Dominick Brascia, not Charlie Sheen, sexually abused Haim when he was a teenager. And that has raised questions about Corey Feldman's relationship with his friend's alleged abuser.
Earlier this week, Brascia alleged that Charlie Sheen sodomized Haim on the set of the film Lucas. A rep for Sheen denied the accusations. Then, on Friday, Haim's mother told Dr. Oz that Brascia was actually the abuser.
"This guy Dominick is the guy that abused my son," Judy Haim said. "My son said so."

So who is Dominic Brascia? The actor and director appeared in Friday The 13th: A New Beginning and guest-starred on Knight Rider and Night Court. He currently hosts a radio show in Montana.
This isn't the first time Brascia has been accused of abusing Haim, either. Last year, a man named Greg Harrison wrote on Facebook that Brascia was the man who abused Haim, and that Feldman was the one who introduced Haim to Brascia.
"Let me take you back on this famous timeline, when Corey Haim was around 15 years old when he first moved to LA, to act in a little movie that was to be called, The Lost Boys," Harrison wrote. "It was Corey Feldman who introduced him to Actor – Director and Pedophile Dominick Brascia. It is also public record in many interviews that Feldman did and is no secret, that Feldman was jealous of Haim. Corey Feldman introduced this pedophile to Haim and a lot of other boys."
Harrison's statement also appeared on Corey Haim's website with the approval of Haim's mom. Judy Haim also wrote at the time that Harrison "was and is a close confident to both Corey and myself."

At the time, Brascia denied the allegations, telling Perez Hilton in a statement that they were "totally not true." Brascia continued, "He [Haim] was 14 or 15 and his abuser whose identity he never revealed was in his forties. I'm in my fifties, the guy would be 73 today. If you believe this 'friend of Corey' you must believe Corey Haim lied."
Haim also referenced being abused during an emotional episode of his and Feldman's reality show, The Two Coreys. Haim lashed out at Feldman for staying friends with Haim's abuser. Haim did not name the abuser at the time, but Harrison wrote in his Facebook post that Haim was referencing Brascia.
In the clip, Feldman fired back that he was being abused by a different guy, and that Haim was not there for him, either. Indeed, Feldman has also admitted that he was a victim of sexual abuse in Hollywood as a teen.
He is currently raising money for a documentary that he says would expose the rampant pedophilia in the industry. He also recently appeared on Dr. Oz and named actor Jon Grissom as one of his alleged abusers. Feldman may name more alleged abusers in a follow-up appearance on Monday. He is scheduled to appear on the show again on Nov. 13.
