It’s been a little while since Charlie Sheen’s been in the news, and the latest on the wild actor is as headline-grabbing as ever: On Wednesday, he denied accusations he allegedly raped Corey Haim when the late actor was just 13.

“Charlie Sheen categorically denies these allegations,” a representative for Sheen told The Hollywood Reporter.

The former “Two and a Half Men” star worked with Haim on the 1986 movie “Lucas.” (Haim played the title character in the excellent and sensitive teen flick, which, along with Sheen, starred Kerri Green, Courtney Thorne-Smith — and Winona Ryder in her screen debut.)

Actor Dominick Brascia, Haim’s friend, told the National Enquirer Sheen sexually assaulted Haim during the film’s production; at the time, Sheen was 19.

Though he died in 2010, Haim also been in the spotlight in connection with former child actor Corey Feldman’s recently aired claims that he was sexually abused as a youngster working in Hollywood — and that his good pal, the other child star Corey, also was a fellow victim.

Haim’s mother Judy Haim, however, questioned Feldman’s reason for the making claim, calling him a “scam artist” who only wants raise money to make a documentary about pedophilia in Hollywood.

The Los Angeles Police Department has confirmed that it’s investigating Feldman’s accusations.

FUN, POLITICS AT CMA AWARDS

Country music stars Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood didn’t steer clear of politics, or humor, hosting the 51st CMA Awards in Nashville on Wednesday.

After the show began with performances by Eric Church, Lady Antebellum and Darius Rucker, the pair talked about recent tragedies, from shootings in Las Vegas and Texas to devastating hurricanes.

Commenting that they were directed to avoid social commentary, they went on to make fake song-title jokes about Anthony Scaramucci, Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton, tunes like “Way Down Yonder on the Scaramucci,” “Hold Me Closer Bernie Sanders,” “Harper Valley DNC” and “Stand by Your Manafort.”

But the best was Paisley’s rendition of “Before He Cheats,” which nicely took aim at President Donald Trump.

KEVIN’S OUT

As the sex scandal involving Kevin Spacey shows no signs of waning, word is out that the actor has been kicked off the Ridley Scott film “All the Money in the World,” two months before its release. Christopher Plummer will replace him in the role of billionaire J. Paul Getty.
