Corey Feldman’s tears as Hollywood Medium contacts Corey Haim
Corey Feldman broke down in tears as a TV medium contacted his late friend Corey Haim.
The 45-year-old actor became emotional when Tyler Henry from TV show ‘Hollywood Medium’ attempted to speak with Feldman’s fellow child star Haim, who passed away in 2010 at the age of 38.
Tyler told Feldman: "I don’t feel like his life’s story is completely done," while the actor wiped away tears.
Feldman previously claimed his ‘Lost Boys’ co-star Haim was raped by a Hollywood producer when he was just 11 and his drug and alcohol problems, which continued up until his death, were linked to the sexual abuse he suffered as a child.
Corey said: "He had more direct abuse than I did. With me, there were some molestations and it did come from several hands, so to speak, but with Corey, his was direct rape, whereas mine was not actual rape.
"And his also occurred when he was 11. My son is 11 now and I can’t even begin to fathom the idea of something like that happening to him. It would destroy his whole being."
The ‘Stand by Me’ star also alleged that people in Hollywood circles were aware of the abuse.
He told The Hollywood Reporter: "This person uses intimidation and threats as a way to keep people quiet. And all these men were all friends.
"Ask anybody in our group of kids at that time: They were passing us back and forth to each other. [Alison Arngrim] from ‘Little House on the Prairie’ said [in an interview], ‘Everybody knew that the two Coreys were just being passed around.’
"Like it was something people joked about on studio lots. We’re not talking about huge executives and directors that I am aware of that were involved in this. The people that I knew doing it were publicists, they were photographers for teen magazines, things like that."
Corey added that he would not name any individuals because of legal reasons.
