Toronto Star - - NEWS -

Sex­ual abuse al­le­ga­tions con­tin­ued to en­gulf the en­ter­tain­ment world on Thurs­day.

Amid re­ports that Kevin Spacey was be­ing re­placed by Christo­pher Plum­mer in the movie All the Money in the World, that Shark Tank star Robert Her­javec was be­ing sued by an ex-girl­friend for rape and that co­me­dian Louis C.K. was be­ing ac­cused by five women of sex­ual mis­con­duct, Char­lie Sheen de­nied as­sault­ing late child star Corey Haim when he was 19 or 20 and Haim was 13

ccord­ing to on­line re­ports, fel­low ac­tor Do­minick Bras­cia claimed in the Na­tional En­quirer that Haim told him he had anal sex with Sheen on the set of the movie Lu­cas.

Haim, a Toronto na­tive, died in 2010. A rep for Sheen said he “cat­e­gor­i­cally de­nies” the al­le­ga­tions. In other de­vel­op­ments: Trans­par­ent star Jef­frey Tam­bor has de­nied an al­le­ga­tion of in­ap­pro­pri­ate be­hav­iour by his former as­sis­tant, Van Barnes, but Ama­zon Stu­dios is in­ves­ti­gat­ing.

En­tourage ac­tor Jeremy Piven is now fac­ing sex­ual as­sault al­le­ga­tions from a third woman, Tif­fany Ba­con Scourby, who says Piven forced him­self on her in a ho­tel room in 2003 and ex­posed his gen­i­tals. Piven says it didn’t hap­pen and is look­ing into le­gal op­tions.

An­other ac­tress has ac­cused Gos­sip Girl star Ed West­wick of rape. Aure­lie Wynn, who went by Aure­lie Marie Cao when she was act­ing, said Wed­nes­day that West­wick raped her in July 2014.

Prison Break star Robert Knep­per is deny­ing al­le­ga­tions that he forced him­self on a cos­tume de­signer in 1992. Susan Ber­tram says Knep­per grabbed her and pushed her against a wall in his trailer while film­ing Gas Food Lodg­ing.

Brook­lyn Nine-Nine ac­tor Terry Crews has filed a po­lice re­port against the Hol­ly­wood hon­cho he claims groped him at a party last year. Crews did not name the man, but he was iden­ti­fied by the Hol­ly­wood Re­porter as agent Adam Venit.
