According to former child star Corey Feldman, child molestation is rampant in the entertainment industry, as he told Nightline in an interview.
"The No. 1 problem in Hollywood was and is and always will be pedophilia," he said Wednesday. According to Feldman, the “casting couch” exists for children, too.
Feldman asserts that directors and other adults in the industry take advantage of young aspiring actors on a regular basis. “It's all done under the radar... But it's the big secret,” the 40-year-old said.
Feldman also claimed that former co-star Corey Haim's death last year was the end result of sexual abuse by an unnamed "Hollywood mogul." Feldman said that his friend’s substance addiction was "a symptom” of the molestation he experienced.
The actor previously revealed to GQ that he was raped by his assistant as a child. "It's something that will be addressed in my inner soul for the rest of my life, and it's something that truly affects me,” he told the magazine.
Why is it so necessary to always mention Michael Jackson in connection with Corey Feldman's words? Why are you so ignorant and lazy? Why don't you do just a quick check-up and find that Corey Feldman was interviewed by the police and didn’t say a single bad word about MJ?
And Corey Haim also said Michael Jackson was one of the best people he ever met in life:
HAIM: I was at Neverland eight, nine, some odd years ago, when he was going through the thing with the kid. And I even said to him then, are you are right with this kid thing? He said, yes, I am fine.
He was one of the smartest, sweetest guys I have ever met in my life. And there are a lot of these weird allegations going around about like, people saw my show and somehow they think I got molested when I was a kind by Michael Jackson.
And I really want to throw it out there, that never happened.
VAN SUSTEREN: How old were you at that time?
HAIM: Like I said, it was in the last decade, about a decade ago I was there.
VAN SUSTEREN: Well, how old are you now?
HAIM: I’m 37. When I was 29 I was there.
He was just a really nice guy. I do not know how to explain that. I knew nothing happened. Just my first impression of him, that’s just me, you know? I did not know him as well as a lot of people.
Don’t you see that REAL pedophiles were simply distracting attention from themselves by all this hoopla around Jackson?
victor salva got busted (and he filmed the abuse!) then went on to make more movies
How come CNN and Fox News do not carry this news.If you are a coach, school teacher,priest it all over the news.child abuse is all around us just check with police,child services,hospitals.
Name the people, Corey. It is your responsibility to do it. If you know the names, if you know if is happening, name them. Do it.
Exactly. Name the pedophille. Someone needs to bring down H-wood from all the overly priviledged peeps. They think they are untouchable. Where's Elliot Ness when you need him?
does that include sleepovers at Michael Jackson's house?????
I wonder if his buddy Michael Jackson is among the people he's talking about?
Fame at what price?!
It's sickening what goes on underneath the polished surface of our most idolized places that are coveted by so many naive people! Somehow it does not surprise me. I can only pass by the check out counters in any store , or flip the channel to "Entertainment Today", and see the fake smiles, the pretense of glamor, the phony happiness on those people's faces.
I only feel sorry for those who fall for the "fool's treasure" trap, and then find out how empty and hollow it is... But for some it becomes too late by the time they see reality! That's why Hollywood glamor is nothing but a satan's trap for so many naive souls!
jackson is dead yea haw the little diddler dirtbag fxxk him speilberg mmmmmmmmmm so his accident was no accident figures
So these hollywood moguls are older men abusing, molesting young boys correct. That effectively then makes these abusers male gays correct? Gay molestors?
Wow,I wonder if Spears, Hudgens and Cyrus made it to the "casting couch"
Unless he names names, he's just saying this to get attention. There is no "bravery" involved. As a matter of fact, if he knows who the "unnamed mogul" is who molested his friend, an action he describes that led to his friend's suicide, then he is a coward for not naming him, and part of the problem.
And this is surprising how?
Speak up Corey..name names..you might save some young kids!!! Yes, it would cause a paycheque maybe, but you could sleep at night knowing that the you dealt with that, as well as the number 2 issue...greed. Otherwise, shut up and don't try to make false accustions for self publicity.
If he says its common and its a big problem then he probably knew so many doing it, why doesnt he drop them in it, help clean up hollywood, he'd probably make more on the circuit talking about it then acting, and hed probably make more quality product
You cant blame every single thing that goes wrong in your life on molestation. There are no proven connections. So what, you may have gotton corn holed as a young person, get over it and move on. It doesnt give you the right to use an excuse for every failure you have in life. Geez, this is as old as the race card.
Get over it.
Matt, adults abused as children are more likely to have problems with substance abuse. Everyone copes differently.
Well we know of another Child molestor in Holly wood, beside Polanski and Allen.Anthony Hutchison. Someone need to go and investigate this guy to see how many other female child stars he has fell in love with.
corey will do anything for publicity .... can not name the names because it probally did not happen ...his career tanked years ago
wait, he knew who was molesting corey haim and he STILL hasnt said anything about it???? it only stops if you report it! jesus!!!!
They found MJ's other glove it was pulled out of Coreys butt.
Any bets that half of the people ridiculing him are pedophiles themselves?
Can't take the heat, eh? Well, then keep your hands off our children.
This Corey had a creepy relationship with Michael Jackson,enough said.
The biggest enemy is not the enemy within, the fear one may be gay because of attraqction ro men or arrousal by the thought. The biggest enemy is both gay men and also straight men who hate gay men, (phobic of them), or women who hate them, because they will say to boys who are not gay, sure you are, admit it, come out, we all know you are, you just dont know it, people who say you act gay or fem etc are destroyers of children growing up. Because of them they weaken the resistance when gays say come on get in on with me or with us. Evil is in hearts. Soon to change, astral impact Jan 19. ELIJAH
when did kids not learn that if they didn't like something being done to them, they don't tell thier parents?
Good to hear the other side of when Corey Haim died and you threw your support behind him. I don't read industry mags or rags and seeing what you said here was worth the wait, you are obviously a good friend of his and I hope time distances you from your own bad parts of life. Be strong. It could be worse I could be twins. See a little humor years later can go a long way, hang in there man.
re: hollywood mogul, Grow up! Obviously the statue of limitations has expired, and accusing in public would result in a slanderous lawsuit. Try proving something happened to you that long ago, and see how far you get. Many abused children don't expose stuff until their adults and ready, it doesn't mean it didn't happen. He is helping now, by exposing this, possibly already told others his secret, who then can spread the word. We need to protect our children everywhere!
why don't you cover this on the airways? Or write a real investigative article regarding pedophilla in Hollywood, in COG/The family, etc. We need to protect our children, it is our most important resource.
I hope he's not making this up just to draw attention to himself. If he is telling the truth than that "assistant" needs to be prosecuted and thrown in jail. It seems interesting that he would go to the media about it instead of the authorities.
How does Feldman make such accusations and the U.S. Department of Justice doesn't launch an inquiry? How does this happen in America? WE WANT ACTION. NOT RHETORIC. DO YOUR JOBS.
wait for it... w a i t f o r i t... god works in mysterious ways
What happened to these two young men is awful BUT why then did they continue to hang around Hollywood looking for work and getting wasted; why did they not leave it all behind them and use what money they earned to go to college and start new decent productive lives far away from the entertainment industry. Sorry but I think the reason so many young actors crash & burn is because they are still trying to find their way back to the top when their star has obviously fallen: save yourself and get out of town.
Corey, I'm surprised that you don't think the biggest problem in Hollywood is childhood stars making up stories to try and stay relevant when their drug money dries up.
seriously?? Are you paid to say that?
this should be headlining the news!
why isn't it?
now everyone knows the answer.
At least they got to make millions of dollars being molested by old men.
All the rest of us got was some itchy rashes and a stuffed animal that gives us bad memories
What??? Are you saying that you got molested and now you're upset because the molester didn't pay you or give you gifts? Wow, you really need help, because you act as if molestation is about getting rewarded! You need counseling.
I guess nobody's ever heard of nambla...guess this web site protects them too...tried 3 times to get this on....sad
It's sad that you can't get on NAMBLA? I think that it's good that the site is gone. But you just showed your colors!
But, then again, perhaps i misunderstood what you said. Please tell me what you meant!
I absolutely believe him. It didn't surprise me at all. I first noticed he had a lot of pent up rage just trying to get out after MJ died. It was very difficult for him to say anything even remotely negative just after his death do to MJ being vaulted by much of the world into godly saint status, up there with Ghandi and Mother Theresa. But one thing he said in an interview caught my attention. He said that when he was a child and first became famous, MJ called him and started spending lots of time with him, including sleep overs, etc, then when Corey got a little older MJ tired of him and stopped calling and he claimed that this really messed him up psychologically during a very vulnerable time in his life. I was surprised because it must have been very hard for him to say something even remotely negative about MJ in that atmosphere. To me however, he was almost hinting that MJ molested him and I have no doubt that he did. Eventually, Corey Feldman or McCauley Culkin will spill the beans about MJ. I do understand why Corey would not name names ... the kind of power and money we're talking about is no joke ... he could very well be killed or have his life made even tougher than it already is. I have a lot of respect for him for speaking out about these things and having the courage to live his own life and to not repeat the same mistakes his parents made with his own child.
Pray to God to take away the memory and work either spiritually or materially to help other children going through the same grave danger. It's evil. The evil realm exists and people of good will don't get it. Good for you for speaking out on a painful trauma. Jesus Christ has conquered all. God does protect and will take away the hurt and horror of the memory. Pray to the Holy Spirit for healing and purity and you will find and give peace. Be sealed in the Holy Spirit. St. Michael the Archangel pray for us.
Skarrlette, you may not believe in God, but he believes in you!
If he speaks the truth, he MUST name names. If he doesn't try to put these pedophiles away, then he is enabling them and allowing other children to be victimized.
well i think you people who are putting cory down as an actor are wrong. we all enjoyed goonies, lost boys, and some of his other movies. he may not be bruce willis or george clooney but he was good in thoses movies. he may or may not be a A actor but he is as good as eddie murphy or steven seagal. he diffently is better than most of these over night stars on reality shows. he is bring a bad thing to the surface which we all knew was there but looked the other way. you can all say your little jokes but i for one i'm not laughing/
Thank you! **The Gremlins, The Goonies, Stand by Me, The Lost Boys** He was in the movies that everyone I know has listed as some of their favorites on facebook, those movies were part of our childhood. Me and my best friend had both Corey's all over our bedroom walls!
Where is Roman Polanski these days?
This is why you can't let the industry raise your kids. It does make sense though. Showbiz is always gonna be vicious and cut throught and it doesn't make much of a difference for someone who's underaged obviously.
Will they go after hollywood the way the go after priests?
Hey look who found a way to get his name in a headline!
It is wrong to speak of any "abuse" done to Haim when he is no longer here to defend himself against these comments.
@ Kaiser Kose -The devil does exsist. Many people choose to do evil just like many choose to do God. You have free will.
@ those whom are writing to Corey Haim is dead if you read the article.
@ those whom write obscenties you know where your mind is.
woody allen married his adopted daughter....enough said...
Horrid. Children tell your parents or an adult if this is happening or has happened. Don't be ashamed or afraid. Your parents will kill the person if not they will call the police and the person will go to jail. I bet this happened to Michael Jackson... so messed up. I enjoy my freedom and abiding by the 10 commandments.... hope I don't have to break one of them.
Nobody's interested in hearing your ignorant liberal-bashing. Put your tinfoil hat back on and go back to watching Faux News. The adults want to talk.
When you have the same inbred filth running Hollywood today as that founded it 100 years ago small wonder.
Corey Feldman the wise sage of Hollywood?!? Ha ha ha. He's going for another 15 minutes. I would take anything and everything he says with a grain of salt.
For all those asking why Corey won't name names, think about it for a bit. He runs the risk of libel and slander lawsuits from those who can easily outspend him in a civil matter. He's shining a light and if there's ever a grand jury called, he could offer testimony at that time. Speaking out in papers and on TV with specific names would only bring down Hell on him.
It wouldn't surprise me that the liberal camp secretly supports pedophilia
So many people are ready to bash Catholic priests on this issue, but now we find that's it's the #1 problem, according to Feldman, in that hotbed of liberalism known as Hollywood. Interesting.
I believe the term you are looking for here is "selective outrage"
so tell us feldman.....did robocop put his pistol in haim?
Unfortunately this isn't much of a surprise. They exploit everybody else to make money. Why would they respect children?
I wonder if senior child stars like Shirley (Temple) Black and Mickey Rooney can confirm this behavior going back decades? I applaud Corey for lifting the cover on this abuse. Of course it exists, it exists in families; churches; schools too. Maybe it's time for someone to do something about it.
Shirley Temple (Black) reports that she was molested by a hollywood director.
"Attention whoring" is, obviously, the bigger problem, especially perpetrated by those no longer relevant to anything, i.e.,like this clown.
Hey...we have computers in Heaven. Cool!
I think its ok as long as both parties consent. These kids AND their parents understand exactly what the deal is, and most are more than willing. Its not reported because these "victims" choose the money and fame that comes with it.
people this is not about faith, jews, rich or poor. these type of people have no believe in God or they wouldn't do these things. not all gays keep to themsevles and not just gay do kids. these people usely appear normal and live a normal life that is why they get away with it for so long leave color, race, religin and money out of it stick to the aqctual problem people
I believe the first child molestor Hollywood producer was Jack Woltz. He ended up getting an offer he couldn't refuse.
do the math age 14 12/23/1985 till 12/23/1986 movies lucas, murphys romance, silver bullet and secret admire directors, podcucers, stars could be anyone. possible that doogie hauser may have in comman. don't think its just fedman that needs to open up i'm sure there are others. maybe its time they all band togather and stop it from happening to new young stars. young stars should never be left alone with anyone other than father or mother on or o0ff film
Thank you for speaking up Corey. Victims understand victims. Pedophiles understand pedophiles. The idiot ignorant people on here must understand each other. I guess. : (
You did a big thing saying that. One of the biggest. Now hopefully this paedophile mafia (REALLY the world's oldest 'profession(s) is "I profess NOT to be"...and ALL attendant lies...) that has, increment by increment, downgraded the whole planet for – what – two thousand years? Eeeeeeccccchhhh. Be smart & get a bullet-proof vest and an intelligence-saavy bodyguard, because they have crossed ALL the boundaries, and good luck to you. Don't worry, movies will get even MORE mindblowingly excellent – not worse!
I always wanted to wanted to see gladiators fight.
hey smilie get a life you sound like a broken record. pedophiles dont even deserve a trial or a painless death, but to an average joe like me religious nuts like you are a much bigger problem than a few perverts. honestly, if u asked 100 people if they would take it in the ass a few times as a kid in exchange for wealth and a career in hollywood, 99 of them would start undressing
Sad but NOT a BIG surprise in Hollyweird.
If you're beautiful & connected then you're above the law; SURE.
We all know who it was – Jeffrey Jones. Case closed.
So, what's the problem? Why can't I come back?
I guess he took his role as "mouth" a little too far.
If someone did perpetrate this abuse on you and Haim, you need to GIVE THE POLICE THIS PERSON'S NAME, or at least consult with them. You could be protecting future victims from the same fate.
STFU already you has-been
My own take on this, is that he is a has-been, who will say shocking things to get attention.
They (both Coreys) already talked about the abuse a while back on their tv show, everyone already know it wasn't made up by Corey F.
So the JudenRats in HollyVitz are pedos too...............Hmmmm, I guess they have all the perversions now......what a sick nation to even allow these filthy beanie babies to breathe air............J Edgar was right all along.............
You have a Jewish name, Ben.
OK, went and looked him up in Wikipedia. Sure enough, he's been in dozens of "B" and "C" grade movies and an armload of forgettable television series. I literally have not seen any of them, not even one. Sorry, Corey Feldman. Your opinion on anything matters no more and no less to me than some random guy at the supermarket or on a bus. Eventually Americans will learn that "Hollywood pseudostar" does not equal "expert on any subject about which they care to express an opinion."
If a marine biologist who's been at it for over 30 yrs told me a fact about the ocean I'd bet he knows what he's talking about more than maybe....some random guy in the supermarket. So, why wouldn't you be inclined to believe Feldman about Hollywood insider info? That's what he's known for; child stardom.
Lets take a vote:
How many of you reading this post would like to kick Smilie's butt?
Am I supposed to know or care who "Corey Feldman" is? I have literally never heard of him. Why should his opinion be important to me?
Since you know English I find it to be complete BS that you don't know who Corey Feldman is, if you were an 80's or 90's child who was even semi cool you have to know!
I do believe that both Corey F. and Corey H. were both molested and this is one reason that lead to their own personal downfalls. Corey is correct and I applaud him for coming out and talking about this. I do wish that he would name names. If he can't do it, there are many sources that could take the info and out it for him. There are many reasons that child actors go down the wrong path and this is one of them.
Considering all the madness with beauty contests where 3-7-year-olds are dressed and made up and act and move like tough experienced wh***s, and the whole thing looks like a pedophile paradise and a promotion campaign for pedophilia, I'm inclined to believe him... I have rarely seen anything more disgusting than those "beauty contests".
Enough Troll bait. Have you guys seen the tea pot orbitting the Sun? It will save you from death. Hell used to be a physical place in the Earth. Its all bs
I have always thought Corey Feldman was hot and interesting. I've enjoyed his work and seeing him in his sobriety. I would love to see him stand up on this subject and really start to do some serious work. Perhaps he can't call out specific people for legal reasons. But, there are many things he could do. I would love to see him make this a platform and start doing investigative work, conduct interviews, create sting operations and anything else he could come up with. He is a very creative man. I'd love to see him take that creativity and apply it to this situation and really run with it. This could take his career to an entirely different level.
I want to know what Mr. Feldman has to say about Michael Jackson. Did Jackson molest him during their sleepovers? This is one of the people who can clear Jackson. Another is Mcauley Culkin.
They both already did so – both Coreys have stated that MJ never once touched them inappropriately or even said anything to make them uncomfortable. Culkin demonstrated his innocence by remaining friends with Micael until his death. What victim of something that heinous would want to be on the same CONTINENT as their attacker, let alone remain friends?
They only people who have said otherwise were members of his staff (bodygaurds, maids) who had no evidence to back their claims, and were hoping to sell their story for a huge profit.
I don't think that just because they (Feldman and Culkin) were pressured into asking yes or no questions and they said "no" because they weren't ready to deal with the storm of negative attacks that would certainly have come from MJ's army of worshippers. I also think that Culkin and Feldman possibly still had conflicting feelings from MJ until his death. Feldman did claim that MJ screwed him up psychologically by pouring lots of attention on him and then dumping him cold when he grew older. To me that strongly suggests molestation. Feldman or Culkin will eventually talk about it, I'm sure, if they ever feel like it's safe enough to do so.

Corey Feldman said about Michael Jackson in a 1993 audiotape made by the autorities:
"He never did anything out of line. I mean anything, you know, I mean, the closest he ever came to touching me was maybe slapping me on the leg once."
does ROMAN POLANSKI come to mind. SICK PERVERT DESERVES PRISON.
he forgot to mention NEPOTISM. whole families with everyone in the movies and tv. almost impossible for the average joe or jane with no family OR JEWISH connections to get a foot into the entertainment business. HOLLYWOOD CNA KISS MY AZZ!
There are a lot of sickos around ... the movie industry is no different ... one obvious one was Jacko. It is being condone by many who don't even care as long it doesn't affect them personally. At the end, they'll have to answer for their transgressions.
Well, Corey. You were butt buddies with Michael Jackson. He was one of the biggest pedophiles when he was alive. Now he's burning in hell.
Well Janet, and you other people who are just SURE Jackson molested kids – where you butt buddies with Jackson? No you're just another know it all who refuses to listen to people who, unlike you, actually knew Jackson – including by the way Feldman and Haim who have consistently said that Jackson never hurt them. There is absolutely no reason for Feldman to continue saying that unless it is true. Also, as someone else has pointed out, not one other "victim" has come forward after Jackson's death to say he molested them although they are all now grown. In Jackson's case he not only stood trial he was investigated for 18 years by the FBI, LAPD, Santa Barbara DA (who had a hard-on to convict him ), and the media. So, unless you have evidence that has not been found in 18 years of intense vetting go pound sand. The other people mentioned in this post need to be investigated just as thoroughly not smeared on the basis or rumor and hearsay.
Quit the evil and call on the Lord Jesus Christ to forgive you of your sins! He'll forgive you and heal you when you call on His name.
The pedophile mogul is David Geffen. Read up on him, google him, see when he was in Corey's life. What a sicko. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0311691/
This is the kind of thing people need to hear more about, if you really know something then spread the word on all the blogs.
hes right. its a sad truth. straight teens, straight young adult men are hunted by entertainments gay elite casting directors, agents, managers, executives, and moguls. its like a big game to them. which straight kid can we "get" and I would say if your between the age of 16-30 and your given the world through promises by someone who is so credible you react for two reasons. #1 you do what they say. #2 your afriad theyll end your career (which will be comunicated ig you dont give in sooner or later) I know a few A list actors who have been through a lot of this. At one point i was told when i questioned my manager about advances made on me by others he simply replied " no one likes drama. its hollywood, stay open minded and at worst take it as a compliment. but never reject them, its a game play along" sick people,
Whining. Make a commitment to living life to the fullest from today. If one lives in the past one cannot live in the future. You think you are the only person this ever happened to? Move on.
O.K but, I'm saying why is he now complaining he and them were molested by Gay Men and won't report or make know who it was. So I'm saying that if that really happens then say and tell someone for protection and those perverts arrested doing time and out of those positions. Not reporting it just feeds these beasts to carry on... That is weak white people to me. I would not have it one bit. When I was younger I was walking to my after school job. People in a Van pulled up while I was walking and called me over with their side cargo door open. I said NO and continued walking to work that afternoon. I would never forget that! You hear and see these stories of some who don't think or fight for their life to prevent being a story on the news, maybe. I'm not white.
I understand the legal trouble he could be in for naming names...but why not sign on to all these blogs under a different name and say " I have to remain anonymous but I'm a Hollywood insider and some of the offenders/ rapists are: so & so and this guy & that guy" sure some people would say, how can we believe you if you don't tell who you are? but, most people know the ring of truth when they hear it, I'd like someone to at least call these people out by name anonymously.
p.s. you think black kids like Todd Bridges and a million other non-famous ones don't get molested and keep it a secret? gimme a break
Wasn't Corey a good friend of Michael coughpedophilecough Jackson?
Well he is certainly right in regards to Brooke Shields who in 'pretty lady' was definitely taken advantage of by producers, directors, and the entire cast. She was only 11 or 12 and definitely underage for some of the scenes in that movie.
Or was it called pretty baby? I think i remember this, she was a little girl living with some man and laying in bed with him? I was looking on some site once showing stars then & now, and the pic of Brooke was shocking, she was about 11, totally flat chest, wearing a see through lace deep v lingerie top. Lots has happened to her for sure.
Child molestation is not just a Hollywood problem, it is a US problem ~ 1 out of every 4 of our 18-year old girls has been molested and nearly 1 out of every 3 of our 18-year old boys has been. And yes, addiction typically follows unhealed trauma.
It's not just an American problem, it's a world problem.
It's so easy to make these generic claims but nobody ever seems to name names. Until somebody actually comes forward and shouts out a name, I will never believe a story of abuse it's just such an easy out for someone of his stature. A regular person or kid, yes they get my sympathy but not a Cory Feldman who is old enough to name a name.
Corey Haim was a very funny guy and he endeared himself to those of us who appreciated his comedic wit and goofy persona. Whatever demons he had or may have had I'm sure he didn't deserve, based on the rememberances of those who knew him best. I'll remember him as that creative vampire-killer in "Lost Boys" and his other roles rather than as a tortured adult. I'd bet he'd rather we all remember him that way, too. God bless, Corey. We miss ya!
I am sad to say that I believe you corey. Whats really disturbing is that some parents knows and pretend to be blind because of $$$$ signs in their eyes.
Michael Jackson put it in his dumper as a youngen. True story.
Hey Corey, you must name the dirty slime. There will be one less.Write a book or something, they need to be exposed.
I agree, step up and name names.
Corey Haim talked about his abuse a couple years ago on a reality show, while he was in therapy. He named the molestor but they bleeped out the name of course.
Light definitely needs to be cast in the dark corners where evil like this still goes on. Thanks Corey F.
That tape needs to be taken to the courthouse immediately. If not, some person with a soul that works there needs to leak it to the net.
This sorry has been will do anything to get attention and he know this subject is a sure fire head spin....bla bla bla
Who is he? and, didn't Casey claim the same thing?
The real number one problem in Hollywood is that this loser hasn't overdosed yet.
Can't tell you how many movies I see where I have to stop for a second and say, " wow, are they throwing out some pedophilic innuendos in this movie?", But then i just shake my head and move on with the story because that's what the writers and directors want me to do. I'm supposed to say, Hollywood is hip, their rich, the problem is me. I'm the one who's paranoid and uncool about stuff. I'm just not with it..... I think Corey is a brave guy.
Would you mind expanding on that? I'm not attacking you, I just have not noticed, and I am curious as to what you are seeing?
I see it all the time too. One thing that comes to mind was watching an episode of The Naked Brothers band, they were doing a music video called "banana smoothie" & the young brother was for some reason wearing a leash and collar, his shirt was off and he was sliding around on the floor covered in "banana smoothie" just one example of alot of things in kids shows & movies that set alarms off in my head.
If he had any nuts whatsoever he would name the unnamed "Hollywood Mogul". Until he does he's participating in the coverup and part of the problem.
He's partly right. It's a big problem Everywhere; not just Hollywood. Check out the "Bad Cop 2" section of Familylawcourts.com
Corey, I would like to talk to you. I have so much info on being abused.
I believe you, Corey. I hope somebody listens to you.
I believe him too. It's such a shame that two of his past co-workers have died early. I really enjoyed The Lost Boys, and Stand By Me. River Pheonix is dead, Corey Haim is dead, maybe Feldman is just trying to spark a light in to what's going on. Someone up-thread made a very thoughtful comment about how all these child actors could not be organically mentally ill based on a percentage of the population.Crispin Glover is a nut, but I would look into his allegations. Even a broken clock is right twice a day.
I'm curious about one legal thing. If Feldman knows the name of the person that committed the crime of abusing Haim, isn't he required by law to disclose it to the police? Wouldn't knowing about a crime and the perpetrator of a crime and saying nothing be considered at the very least obstruction of justice?
No, Mr. Feldman is not a mandated reporter. Victim of abuse are not required to report and most do not. With more awareness and more gentle accepting of abuse survivors (although society in general still tends to blame the victim) more victims are coming forward sooner. There are many legitimate reasons that survivors do not come forward and it really is a very personal decision. Believe me when I say that it is something that many of us survivors struggle with daily. Considering that the average time between when the abuse ends and when the survivor first has the courage to talk about what happened is 17.6 years by then often the statute of limitations has kicked in.
I hope someday that all young victims will be able to come forward and tell immediately, but I understand why in most cases that is just not possible. It is very easy for society to sit back and second guess a survivor's choice, but to not come forward is something that should not be second guessed. In Mr. Feldman's case I would guess that without evidence it would just be a he said/he said situation ending with Mr. Feldman being accused of slander. Don't forget – Hollywood moguls have very high priced attorneys.
This is no surprise. Has everyone forgottern how Hollywood moguls rushed to defend admitted child molestor and fugitive from justice Roman Polanski?
I think the only problem they have is stupidity
That's why you see so many movies, TV shows and commercials where young boys are depicted as feminine and girly. Really uncomfortable to watch a child actor who's been demasculated and made to be soft and feminine by the director's hair and make-up folks.
Why do pedophiles want to sleep with children??? I mean why not with a consenting adult??? Can any body shed any light on this??? It has always been some kind of enigma for me. And, thanks in advance.
When somebody says something bad about you, don't you get angry at that
person for months at the time? Well, that's what the devil intendend.
When you have been abused, you are bonded to the devil until you do
something about it.
An abused child is bonded to the devil until they do something about it? Are you frickin' insane? What a horrible, wretched thing to say!
I was abused horrifically as a child and I have never been bonded to the devil. I am deeply loved by the Father and reject the Evil One's ways. You are placing the blame on the child and saying that they are evil because they were the victim of some disgusting, sick human being. Nothing could be further from the truth. The only one bonded to the devil is the abuser – not the abused. What a twisted and sick thing to say.
For all of you that want to drag out the tired old question of "Where was your God when you were being abused?" – save it. If I have to explain it to you then you are not intelligent enough to understand the answer.
you are an idiot
I meant Riz Kahn is an idiot.
They are very mentally ill and claim (probably true, sadly), that they cannot stop themselves from hurting children. Just like a serial killer is evil and insane, and totally lacks empathy for anyone else, so is a pedophile. Instead of choosing to kill themselves or at the very least having themselves castrated to prevent them from harming another child, they are too mentally insane and sick to do anything to prevent their crimes, and continue to hurt children again and again and again and again.
What can u expect from Godless neanderthals!!!!!!! Shut down this Jewish brothel.
The Jewish brothels? That a stupid thing to say. Every race in the world has brothels of some sort. It's just not a Jewish thing. Get real.
Corey, all is not lost. The Flying Spaghetti Monster loves you, and wishes to salve your deep psychic pain. He shed his tomato sauce and sacrificed his basil to save you – put your trust in him . Let him wrap you in his noodley appendages forever and ever. Al Dente.

No need to mock Christianity with some stupid made-up "god", Sic.
This kinda of stuff messes someone up for a long long time. Its not something that people talk about right when it happens, especially kids. The mind even blocks that it ever happened till one day you remember and it sucks. Then you wonder if its your fault or not. If you did something to provoke them into doing that to you. I feel bad for them and I have no reason to not believe him. Its not my place to say if he is telling the truth or not, or even trying to guess who it is. Its usually no one you would ever guess. Hollywood has some bad people in it, and so does my neighborhood and so does yours. Its an everywhere problem.
Jay, I agree with you. I wish there would be more people inspired to help those
that have been abused. My heart goes out to those that have been abused.
I love you and feel for you...
Why are you afraid to mention the "Hollywood moguls" names? They need to be put on trial like MJ was for their misdeeds. Sounds like a serious racket to me. The ultimate organized crime.
"Claire, pedophiles have a way to organize everything. Time alone with the child, etc, etc" Oh yes pedophiles are all geniuses and masterminds and plotters and have devious awesome intelligence, just like those Jews. Shut up with your stupid infantile stereotypes.
Once again the tinsel looks more like tin.
Cory you are brave to speak up and speak out... May your soul find peace.
I have tried to post twice and I do not wish to retype everything again. Hopefully, this one will get through. Feldman introduced Haim to his abuser and this happened when Haim was either 14 or 15. During that time, Feldman was working on The Goonies which was directed by Speilberg. Haim never worked with Speilberg, and again, Feldman introduced Haim to his abuser. During an interview with Greta Van Sustern, Haim said that he was first introduced to MJ by Feldman, and then by Speilberg. Why was Speilberg introducing Haim to anyone when the two never worked together? (BTW, both Coreys have always maintained that MJ did not molest them.)
I could of course be wrong, but I wonder about this. Speilberg has always seemed like a pedophile to me. Think about his movies; who is usually the central character? A young boy with either absentee or clueless parents. I have always wondered why his first wife got such a huge divorce settlement – to keep his tawdry secrets perhaps? Consider Crispin Glover's comment that Speilberg is a pedophile. (Glover played George McFly in Back to the Future. He has written some very outlandish things but that does not mean that the pedophile comment is false,)
Schumacher has always been openly gay but I do not think that it was him. For one thing, the age does not jibe as Haim's rapist was in his 40's at the time.
PROTIP: type into a blank text file (e.g. notepad), then cut and paste into comment box = no retype
The Goonies was directed by Richard Donner. Spielberg only wrote the original story, not even the screenplay.
Another secret that some are not aware of is that rich and powerful men can offer hush money for a legal hush contract, which is then sealed by the court. So those that can't name names of their abusers are stuck and at risk of being sued themselves. Sometimes kids and adults sign hush contracts without receiving any money because they are threatened or pressured to sign for a variety of reasons which the lawyers ignore (yep under duress, but can't prove it later on). Another reason pedophiles get away with this (no prison time) is because the trauma of the abuse was so severe they put it out of their mind and didn't recall it until the statute of limitations ran out. PTSD can make you forget, but then recall it later when you're older. Pedophiles choose specific occupations and yearn to achieve positions of power so they can carry out their sick desires. I'm a 40 plus yr old victim, of many different people who had an immense network of powerful unscrupulous sick people. The people that were supposed to protect me allowed it to happen. I still live in fear.
You are wrong it is illegal to offer money to someone to keep them from testifying in a criminal case. You can sign an agreement not to talk on TV shows, or write books but you can't pay someone not to testify in a criminal trial, it is a form of bribery. The person could take the money and sill testify in a criminal trial.
Tom, the chance for a criminal case expired due to Statute of Limitations. Sorry you misunderstood.
I don't doubt it is a problem. Anywhere there is power being brokered and abused there will be those there to abuse it. I somehow doubt that is Hollywood's BIGGEST problem. Anywhere there are children, there will be child molesters.
Someone's always gonna fu ck you kid...
Joel Schumacher you are a skumbag. Read Luke 17: verses 1&2 and see what GOD has
in store for you. You are going to rot in hell!!!!!!!!!!!!
PLEASE keep The God Squad out of this.
Mackenzie Phillips from One Day At A Time wrote a book a couple years ago about how all that sort of thing happened to her. Adding also to that her dad did things like that to her. Of course this out of work for 100 years washout needed a ratings boost and how nice of her to slam her dad about 34 seconds after he died so he was not around to answer to the her charges, be they true or false! We've got her and that old washout from Superman that on one has seen for years and years suddenly showing up in someone's backyard claiming that someone is chasing her all the while everyone knows she's totally trying to be beat herself into a ratings boost frenzy! If Mr. Goonies was subjected to this wrong and there is any truth to it, let him call the accused onto the mat and also the person that supposedly did horrible things to Corey H. Otherwise unsubstantiated rumors are just that and these people are looking for a way...back in to an industry that coughed them out decades ago !
Todd, get a life, you must be a pedophile to be so protective of them.
I would like to help the people who have been abused. I was abused as a child,
but went to a special program and got lots of help. Thank GOD!!!!!!!! It was not easy,
but it changed my life........ Faith Farm, Boynton Beach, FLA
Truth needs to be out. It was imaginable to be so, but how sad... Do the Hollywood stars get to have high school diploma? Those who didn't finish high school should not speak on politics.
I think you would be surprised how many people in power never graduated high school.
Princess Diana, Sir Francis Drake, Thomas Edison, Michael Faraday, Mohandas "Mathatma" Gandhi, Arthur Henderson(nobel prize winning Britsh politican), Andrew Johnson, John Major(British Prime minister 90-97), and many more.
If you understood what grade school and high school is actually teaching you it wouldn't be that big of a deal to you. School is to teach you how to learn not really about what you learn. That's why companies like college graduates, because they have showen they know how to learn.
If child molestation is occurring in Hollywood or anywhere else for that matter, responsible adults should not just give interviews to the news media–if they have information on the topic they should talk to prosecutors and send anyone who is convicted of that disgusting in jail.
I too was molested as a child! You need to stop using this a a crutch for your trobles, only you can break the cycle. Either you control it or it controls you. If it controls you, it will eat you up for the rest of your life. Become a survivor and do what it takes to go on with your life. The way I've come to terms with it. You need to learn to forgive, and remember that you are not at fault. Have God as your number one healer...
I believe him. Hollywood plays by a different set of rules. Just look at some of the names mentioned above Michael Jackson, Woody Allen, Roman Polanski. There are people in Hollywood that knew of these incidents and they just turned the other cheek.
He has a point when Hollywood gives an Oscar to a child rapist like Roman Polanski
Hollywood really needs to be stopped in it's tracks. Woody Allen is the biggest Pedophile of them all but for some reason he got a pass. People really need to stop glorying Hollywood. They really don' t deserve it.
Woodt Allen never messed with any women under 18 years old.
Corey, I'm really sorry you were molested as a child. I was too, and I know the devastation it can cause. I don't know if it was you or the editor of this article, but this article seems to suggest that pedophilia is more of a problem in Hollywood than elsewhere. That is not the case. Pedophilia affects the rich, the poor, and the middle class. It affects the famous, the infamous, and the unknown. It affects all religions and races, boys and girls, gay and straight. Pedophilia is pandemic, and until we can accurately state that rather than trying to blame certain niches of society, the problem will continue to grow and fester.
Interesting that he came out with this during the FLDS revelations and the conviction of Warren Jeffs.
Dr. Gray, you have, in one statement restored my faith that there is still intelligent life in the comments section. Most of the time they are so painful to read and not worth responding to. Thank You
He know a little something about pedophilia, this is the same Corey Feldman who was crying at Michael Jackson's funeral, right?
MJ never did anything to Corey Feldman or anyone else. I have thoroughly researched this. Most likely he may have been a victim of some pedo himself. Also his father was highly abusive.
Not sure why this didn't post before, Jackson and Feldman remained friends until 2001, when Feldman was an adult, and had a falling out about something. They never regained their friendship and Feldman said after Jackson's death that he now lives with the regret. It is not surprising that he cried at Jackson's funeral, he loved him and unlike you knew him very well.
I'm sure Jackson molested Feldman and many others, but I doubt Feldman would ever admit it.
@me you aren't sure of anything unless it happened to you. Feldman is however sure of what did and did not happen to him and he has consistently said Jackson did not molest him, even while admitting someone else did. Sorry this upsets you but Jackson didn't molest anyone – that's why none of his many other "victims" have come forward since his death despite the fact they are grown now. It's just not reasonable to believe not one of them would talk about it.
Corey, you need to start naming names or this person will continue to get away with it. I always knew this was going on. Too many screwed up kids considering the limited amount of child actors compared to the rest of the population. I knew they couldn't all be bipolar, etc. Good luck.
Hmmm...sounds like plenty of conservatives in Hollywood.
this is nothing new and mr feldman i respect you and believe you im sorry for what the ones who have been hurt went through hugs and much respect bro
Michelle Bachman knows how to handle these cases.
Michelle Bachmann's husband is in the closet, google it.
Michele is a godly woman, and respects her husband, so stop putting her down.
Michelle Bachmann said that the lord said: "wives be submissive to your husbands." That pretty much sums her up for me. Meanwhile her husband said that gay youth are "barbarians."
I don't like either one. And her husband is most likely a closet case. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8spCOEePSo
She's not a God loving person. She's a Gay bashing racist. Yes gay bashing is the same as attackng someone for being black. She's a flat out racist and should never be allowed to do any public job.
Michelle Bachmann is NOT a godly woman. She is a pious, self-righteous shrew who is an enemy of democracy. And her husband looks like one of those phony televangelists.
Feldman is desperate for attention and will say anything. He's just as wack as the dead one.
This is hardly surprising, coming from hollywood. Acting and putting on false fronts is not just in the movies. Wonder how long stuff like this has been going on.
Reminds me of the Eagles song, "King of Hollywood."
If you're not going to name the Pedophiles and have them brought to trial,, then you are an accomplice. So no, I do not admire Corey Feldman. Shut up or put up!
You're an idiot.
I agree. Your comment is idiotic and uninformed. Try some compassion. Until you've lived it, don't judge others who have. Just admitting it happened – even to yourself – takes a tremendous amount of courage, let alone the world. It's important to allow people to process/heal as they need to. At some time in the future he may feel stronger and be ready to press charges, but he is obviously not there yet. These situations are hardly ever as simple as we would like to think, and none of us know the details. Let him be where he is. Let him heal as he heals. Are you suggesting that until he is ready to behave as YOU see fit, then he has no right to discuss what happened to him? I thought this was America. Isn't that part of the freedom we Americans pride ourselves on?
Ana, Corey can't be an accomplice because he is the plaintiff in these statements therefore he has been choked by the jury and can give information about the case solely in the form of riddles that do not violate his parole hearing. Go to law school, sheesh
the statute of limitations on molestation in this case passed a long time ago. i know from personal experience that you cannot do anything to a child molester through the justice system after the statute has passed. besides confronting the person who did it (which, honestly, wasn't very helpful for me) there's not really anything anyone can do. if he accuses them in public he could be sued for defamation. depending on how he handled the accusation he could also be sued for harassment. his options are extremely limited, and they are limited to things that might help him heal but will not help other potential victims.
Sorry to hear that this happened to you and your friend Corey. I hope you are able to come to terms with the abuse and with the loss of your friend. I hope someday, you will be able to say who so they can get the treatment needed and so they are surely not hurting anyone else.
@ Neil Kaye: "Well, Hollywood IS infested with liberals."
What does this have to do with anything?! Liberal = pedophilia to you? Sounds like you have a problem.
Liberal, conservative they both have issues. FLDS is a conservative organization, look at the raging pedophilia, polygamy, it's all over the country. Warren Jeffs is only the beginning of this being brought to the attention of America.
Statistically, it seems Dems go for young girls, and Reps go for young boys. All sick, but the difference of a free and a repressed mind.
FLDS is NOT a "conservative organization". It's a cult. Huge difference.
They after all do create then protect pedophiles and make sure they stay shuffled around for a good sampling of the kiddies. In the name of their invisible white man in the sky that is. Amen.
Don't blame GOD for something the devil has done. Please...........
What did you say?????
I can totally relate to how he said it will affect his "inner soul" for the rest of his life, having had a similar experience as a young girl. When something like this happens to you, it takes something from you and will always affect you and be a part of who you are. I pray that he always finds the strength to deal with it.
Well said. While it is very possible to heal and move on with a great life often time scars still remain. I have absolutely no doubt whatsoever that what he says is true.
Nicole, every abuse damages the soul of a child. When a parent divorces or
separates, and the mother decides to make Jr take the place of her husband,
that is big abuse, it requires a child to go from 4 years old to 25 years old.
That child will never grow up to be a child. Talk about serious abuse......
Smilie are you on crack? No child grows up to be a child.
I am from hollywood, I dunno I never had to ,,,,,,, I mean maybe in the 80's before the invention of the cell phone camera ? maybe,
but these days no way, never would happen, to easy to get caught,
these days even a rumor can get you arrested, besides if that was true all everyone would have been put in prison by now,
there is many a former star disgruntled actor that has no fear of hollywood anymore and would love to see them all suffer,
I think he was pulling a fast one over the reporter,
It is like money in youth sports, just because you never bribed anyone to get your kid on a team doesn't mean that many don't.
Although, if his point is that there is a "casting couch" for children, does he mean that someone set him up with a predator assistant, maybe "returning a favor"? Because otherwise, how would your assistant raping you somehow be casting couch related?
I believe every word and know it's true.
It's obvious who it is and Yes people, it IS not who you know but who you blow.
If you were thinking Gus Van Sant... you were CORRECT.
The biggest problem in Hollywood is all the damn vampires.
Pedo vampires... now that's a lot of sucking.
Scientology makes a pretty penny off the dysfunctional actors and actresses in Hollywood. A fake religion for fake people.
You are right on the money......
All religions are fake.
I respect the guy for bringing attention to this, not that it is any surprise that Hollywood is filled with sickos but at least he is trying to do something about it. Way to go dude!
His wife is hot too. I almost always trust a guy with a hot wife. Shows he has intelligence and is most likely not a kiddie perv.
You trust him because his wife "is hot"? What if she was not so hot looking, pleasantly plump, a nice person. Dumb comment.
A satisfied SC341 rests easy tonight, knowing that they pointed out a serious flaw in David's character judgement logic.
If he hadn't said it I was going to. It was an idiotic comment, it deserved a slap.
I'm going to walk over to the lemonaide stand and see if they have any change for a $5.00 seeing how I'm not very firsty right now.
And all those Hollyweird rapist movers and shakers are entertaining you and telling you what to think, laugh at, believe in, fear, value... You're all a bunch of Christian hillbilly morons, America...easily duped and easily led. Waa-hoo!
Billy Bob, quit calling us hillbillies, Hillbilly Billy Bob!
Hollywood's second biggest problem is thinking they know better than everyone else.
I just stopped supporting them by not watching tv or going to the movies (ever).
No cable in the house whatsoever. My kids read, play video games, or go outside and read.
See how simple that is. Oh and if you have one of those kids that controls you and makes your life miserable if you don't give them what they want..... then too dang bad, your a cra ppy parent and have it comin.
I wish the rest of America could stop going to the movies, they are all GGI crap nowadays anyway. Disney is now synonomous with garbage, they used to be a wonderful, family friendly company. They're all controlled by the same sharks. This country is DOOMED.
Yes, when we all know that only the religious nutjobs really know what is good for America.. and what should be forced on all americans.
Hollywood is a good reason why 98% of Americans are stupid, or perhaps as they would spell it 'stoopid' :) The average yank would be puzzled at most foreign films with messages unlike 'the usa is god's country and family values rules' :0 Oh one more thing -> tattoos make you tough! hahaha
No, that would be the republikans.
Wasn't there a scene in the Godfather where a director was molesting a child actor? He was then found with a horse head in is bed? I believe every word Corey said. Look at the debauchery in the enterainment industry. My only hope is, these people will become outcasts in America. We'll see. I do think they are losing the battle. Thank G-od.
Oh yes, those liberal Hollywood heathens are in the firm grip of the Devil, nothing like that would ever happen in god-fearing, gun-toting, conservative Kansas, where real Americans live. Moron.
about the movie mogul from The Godfather who found his horse's head in bed with him. You are guilty of either concatenating two totally different movie plots, or of blindly believing what some jughead told you. Of course, neither of those things means Feldman isn't telling the truth.
That pedophile stuff is in The Godfather book and very loosely implied in the movie.
Gun-toting Kansas doesn't hide their affinity for God or guns. Hollywood hides it in the form of "personal body guards" who tote the guns for the hypocrite Hollywood elite.
The scene of Woltz raping the young girl is in the book and it was filmed and now can be seen on the deleted scenes of the DVD.
I don't doubt Haim. Hollywood came to Roman Polansky's side and has always been the center of moral decay in America.
Yeah – there, and Congress.
Yeah, and Woody Allen is still in the spotlight. Everybody makes a big deal out of his "May-December" romance with Soon-Yi. But they seem to forget that he was accused of molesting his adopted daughter, a toddler at the time. And he lives in France now, far away from his accusers.
"he was accused of molesting his adopted daughter, a toddler at the time" – WHO accused him? Why?
Was it Mia Farrow?
Rich powerful people against rich powerful people...
His married to his adoptive daughter.
What Woody did is creepy, but there's no evidence anything happened when she was underaged. What seems to have happened was that Soon-Yi (who Allen did not adopt, by the way) comforted him through the deterioration of his relationship with Mia Farrow, something sparked, and Mia used that to blast him, in court and in the press, and she made all kinds of accusations that made him sound like he'd molested their three children. Never happened. I admit the scandal shook my admiration for Woody, and I had been a major fan of his before then. However it should be pointed out they have now been together for 19 years. It wasn't about her age, which was 21 when it started in 1992.
Woody Alllen's own biological son will not see him. This is what he said of his father "He's my father married to my sister. That makes me his son and his brother-in-law. That is such a moral transgression. I cannot see him. I cannot have a relationship with my father and be morally consistent... I lived with all these adopted children, so they are my family. To say Soon-Yi was not my sister is an insult to all adopted children."
dj...you say that woody allen didn't molest his adopted kids like you were there and involved...I love how fans of someone will defend them even when they don't know them. as for feldman...I totally believe that this happened....and it was a known thing that haim never tried to hide..it was spoken about often on The Two Coreys...people have to understand that there is an entire group of hollywood insiders who really only work with children...any pedophile in the business is going to try to work with kids...and all research shows that pedophiles like to get close to the family and create trust to get to their victims...so the parents I'm sure had no idea what was happening...
Molesters will molest children of all ages, even newborns. And the daughter that Woody was accused of molesting was seven years old. The D.A. was going to prosecute Woody for child molestation, but decided against it because he didn't want the little girl to have to appear in court. And Mia discovered the relationship between Woody and Soon-yi when she found nude pics of Soon-Yi taken in Woody's home. They kept separate residences.
Whitewabbit: Sorry, but you need to give a source. That doesn't sound right. Why would a DA say "Oh, I don't want her to appear in court, so I wanna drop the charges" No.
I believe it
If he cared so much he would name names...bottom line.
If he came out and named names without enough to back it in court he'd be in trouble, as would any paper printing the story.
He's trying to get back in the spotlight so they'll finally green light "Lost Boys II" and he can get his career back on track...sort of.
Lost Boys sequels already exist.
Abuse is something very serious, only pedophiles don't think so............
You should be ashamed of yourself......................
The No.1 problem in Hollywood was and is and always will be Corey Feldman.
Are you kidding? He's barely famous anymore.
Jones22, what a pervert you are.......
That comment makes me think that you have an issue.
Where is the thumbs down button when you need one?
I googled Corey Haim and the cause of death of "possible drug ovedose". I applaud Feldman for speaking out but he should name names!
Google again, he did not die of a drug overdose...h
e died of complications of pneumonia.
shouldn't Feldman bring the names of his and Cory's abusers to the proper authorities? Pedophiles dont just stop abusing kids.. they do it repeatedly if they get the opportunity and even if these alleged attackers are not in the industry anymore they most like found other ways to do it.
@Hooligan...It will never happen. That type of illegal activity would probably get lumped into the same category as Celebrities getting caught doing drugs. You NEVER hear about the people that gave the celebrity the drugs to begin with. For example, who supplied Paris Hilton with her nose candy? You will never know
the us gov and the south american gov. supplied the yeyo, and will continue to if country declines enough to allow legalization
does it matter. they'll just go live in france.
Todd Bridges (the black actor) from Different Strokes also claimed his agent molested him. These people are disgraceful.
Thanks for clarifying – thought you might have been talking about Todd Bridges (the lime green actor)...
Because sadly, he doesn't have any proof. Most of the time its just the word of the victim aganist the attacker; especially since it has been so long. A lot of strait men do little boys as not to worry about pregnancy as well. I don't have any reason to doubt the man, he isn't making nothing off of his story BECAUSE he can't/won't name names. I hope he can find a way to cope with and move past the experience.
Looks like Cory and Todd bridges are coming to grips with the cycle that they are now in – pedophiles were once victims of abuse themselves.
I agree. Even though they should be able to keep this private, their silence possibly allows others to be molested. I don't think there's any other way to stop these monsters except convicting them. I'm also for executing them afterwards.
Maybe if people would just research Corey Haim's career and which moguls were involved in it , maybe they'll get an idea who the molester could be. I have an idea, but i'll wait for Corey Feldman to come out with the name. And he will, eventually, simply because he's more honest about his life than other celebrities are.
To the rest: This kid is full of crap, just needs a few bucks and attention...
and this is why nobody comes out in Hollywood. Because you bare your soul trying to help others and all the armchair idiots just says he must need a ratings boost. Shame on all of you.
You should be grateful that someone has broken the silence. Sarah Monahan did it in Australia last year and was met with the same reaction. Hollywood will never let the demons out.
No, it's because money matters more in Hollywood (and to people in general) and just like a poor person abused by the police, he knows he stands no chance complaining or suing and will only increase the pressure on himself. And if Corey, neither, had the money to sue, or felt they had a lack of evidence, how will the poor fare?
But he didn't come out – he didn't even bare secrets of his own, he took the liberty of airing a dead man's secrets. The dead man can't dispute the tale or deny anything. Pretty slimy.
If Corey Feldman has reason to believe that Corey Haim didn't want the world to know what happened to him, then I agree that it's slimy.
But it's entirely possible that Haim kept his silence because of fear of retaliation from the molester, or fear that he'd be blackballed in Hollywood, or because he didn't want to be reminded all the time about what happened to him, etc. And if that's the case, then there's nothing wrong with Feldman coming forward.
As for Corey Haim not having the chance to deny it – if Corey Feldman is certain that it happened, I don't see the issue. It's not as if he's badmouthing his friend.
@Anna: Actually, the abuse Haim and Feldman suffered was a pretty frequent topic that they both talked about in their 'reality' show "The Two Coreys". Nothing he said in this article wasn't already talked about on that show, so he's not really airing a dead man's secrets.
We don't care about the sick twisted path his neglectfull parents led him down. Just make us laugh, cry, smile or curse the movie screen so we can kill some time and throw pop corn down our gullet.
He hasn't "broken the silence" since he protected the "hollywood mogul" by not naming him!
For those who are saying he should name names, if he does, he will be sued. Even though truth is a DEFENSE to libel and defamation, he probably doesn't have the means to defend himself against a rich, Hollywood, and he knows it. It's sad. But, I understand it. He gets his "revenge" by scaring these people into the possibility that he will reveal, it's all he can do. I don't doubt the truth in what he says– it is also very difficult to prosecute these cases so many years later. These poor boys. Exploited.... I can see no reason at all for them to lie.
Let the demons out? First someones got to name them. How can this guy say stuff like this and not name names? Isn`t he just about as bad as them? He knows people who are raping children and he doesn`t name them? Doesn`t he care about the next child that has to go for a tryout? Hmmm. With actions like this you can`t blame people for thinking he`s just looking for publicity. If he`s right and it`s a big Hollywood secret, then please let this cat out of the bag. If it happened to him then he can say it. Who cares if the statute has ran out? At least parents will know who to keep their children away from.
Well I guess he won't be working in this industry anymore! But then when was the last time he did work?
He was in Katy Perry's "Last Friday Night" video, and does work semi-regularly.
Babak from LA, are you a pedophile?
Since he is forty, I doubt any pedophiles will care ...
so your dad stormed the beaches of normandy?
ROFL. Loonie, loonie, loonie.
Looney! Looney! Looney! Shut Up! Shut Up! Shut Up! lol! Hey Corey! Lost Boys III was AWESOME! :DDD
This article states that Corey Haim killed himself, but didn't he die of natural causes? I thought he died of complications due to pneumonia. I know he was a pill addict, but I don't believe his death was ruled a suicide.
The article doesn't state that. Read it again.
I would think poppin pills indiscriminately would complicate any illness.
The article has been altered since this morning. It originally stated suicide instead of death.
Sometimes people overdose on pills or some other drug and vomit while they are unconscious and it gets into their lungs and causes acute pneumonia which restricts their oxygen intake and can lead to hear failure, brain damage, etc, and death.
Kate, you sounded a little snippy in your response to Tiffany. Perhaps you should take a time out in the corner, drink some chamomile tea and take a nap.
Who cares either way.
"Corey Haim’s death was natural and not the result of drugs, the Los Angeles County Coroner revealed on Tuesday.
"Haim’s death was listed as “natural,” the result of diffuse alveolar damage, which is a serious lung injury that can be caused by a number of factors. Pneumonia and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (where the heart muscles become so strong they lower the heart’s ability to pump blood) with coronary arteriosclerosis (where artery walls become thick) were also listed as the actor’s cause of death."
Sounds like the reason he was taking the pills.
Cory where were your parents when this sickness was going on?
Claire, pedophiles have a way to organize everything. Time alone with the child, etc, etc
Why ask? What typical answer can't already be said: my parents weren't paying attention, they trusted the people around me, they were neglectful? Or what are you one those people that wants everyone to be pedoparanoids and starring at every adult to make sure they don't stand to close to their children, or don't look at them for too long, or don't stare at any part of their body, or that makes their children shut ins, or breaths down their necks non-stop? Yeah that's the solution, look where it's gotten the world.
Corey, it's very brave for you to say this, but the mission is not comlete. Name names. Bring the big house down. The movies suck anyway.
Smilie: Yes, but parents who are neglectful/are oblivious/not careful are more easily fooled/taken advantage of by pedophiles than diligent, cautious parents. So the kids of the former pay the price.
At age 15 Corey went through legal proceedings to declare emancipation from his parents. It's fair to say that he did not consider his relationship with them to be healthy.
Why doesn't Corey Feldmen name these pedophiles? Why does he continue to protect these supposed child molesters and not name them??? If he refuses to out these people then he should shut the hell up.
It's good to here someone like him come out. Just look at all Woody Allen and Roman Polanski. And the sick thing is anyone who has been in either of these guys movies are supporters of pedophilia!
His parents are the ones who pushed him into the industry and probably turned the other cheek. Kids that young, starting out, don't have much of a choice when their parents have some pipe dream of their kid becoming famous.
It's all about greed, money and power ... and these poor innocent children have to pay a VERY heavy price.
I have no doubt that these claims are true. Abuse by big money folks is easily covered up the many others who have big bucks. It is a viscous circle of hidden abuse.
Where were the parents? Unfortunately, parents often trust the wrong people. The person that shows great interest in "helping" the family and their child, i.e. a close family menber or neighbor, a manager etc are often abusers. The lure the parents in to get closer contact to the child....i.e. oh, go to dinner, the movie, I'll babysit for free!
When the abuse starts the child often doesn't understand it, and then feels ashamed. Threats of harm, or for a child actor umeployment, will silence the child since the child has become the breadwinner.
Sadly this will continue to go on.
Child starts in the past were taken advantage of, their money was stolen by their managers, lawyers, or sometimes their family. As they age & become less desirable, the child is cast aside like yersterday's newspaper. Few child stars survive into talented adults with careers.
Be careful whose minding the story, or your child.
I have to go with Stephen on this one. If this abuse really did happen and Feldman actually is concerned about the issue, he needs to come forth start naming names and pressing charges. If it's possible that other child actors are going through what he allegedly went through, it needs to be stopped. His silence has got me questioning the validity of his accusation. Add to that the fact that no one else in Hollywood has said anything and I can't help but think that IF it happened to The Corys, it was probably an isolated case and not random Hollywood pedophilia. Either way, if it did happen, the molestors need to be punished.
I don't understand, are we blaming the parents? Children are abused/molested everyday, many with loving, doting parents who have no idea. We can't assume because he was a child star that his parents are somehow to blame for this.
Being gay is no sickness morons.
Stephen, he doesn't name them because he still works there. Black-Balled actors get no jobs, and Feldman is not a large enough star to overcome that.
The real question is why we still allow these childrens parents to make such a gain off their children. I still cant believe that parents would turn the other cheek but apparently being rich at the expense of their children is just too much of a draw. How many child stars or former child stars do we have to watch self destruct because of the abuses they incur at home and on the set.
Not hard to believe. As an abuse survivor I can only imagine it is harder for men to deal with. I know what it can do to a person having to hide and feel ashamed.
Naming names without any kind of proof is libel, he could be sued, and without proof nothing will come of it. If it was 30 years ago then the statue of limitations is gone. Naming names is dicey at this point.
ok Coery....so name the "mogul", name the men that are doing this so we can get them punished and stop this abuse. I have the cryptic reference to "unamed hollywood mogul"....what is that. ? Dont speak out about pedophilia and then say NOTHING....youre part of the problem Corey too....NAME THE PEOPLE INVOLVED OR SHUT UP
Its o.k. Corey, what did mr jackson do to you?
Speaking of pedophilia! Who's the 51yr old who's having a reality tv show with a 16yr old girl? What, cause he's famous, its ok? Theres people in prison for the same thing. U know hes been with her since she was12, right? Just like Heffner. He's a sick f uck too.
Seriously, stop blaming the parents. The blame lies solely on the pedophile. I see this all the time..."the parents should have known" "where were the parents?"...good parents or bad parents, the pedophile is responsible for his or her actions.
Better to be an awful actor than an awful person.
wowgetalife has just said something profound. Eaton Butts, you are trash
Does your teacher have a strange white robe with a funny hood in her closet at school?
Den you oughta stay in your trailer in dem dere hills of Arkansas where you'll be safe, Nelly Boy.
You should grab your bible and git yer gun too and keep on making the rich richer. Praise be to jesus.
Didn't Haim spend some time with Michael Jackson?
Just like the South is infested with snakes, bugs, vermins, rednecks and teabaggers, I guess.
For Charles – Corey Feldman spent time with Jackson when he was a child, he was even in some videos – I'm not sure about Haim. Feldman and Jackson remained friends until Feldman was an adult, although they had a falling out about something in 2001. Since Jackson's death Feldman has said that Jackson reached out to him after the falling out, but he did not respond and now lives with the regret. He was at Jackson's funeral. I am sure this in not what you wanted to hear.
Do you even have a soul? If you ever had one, you've lost it. I'll bet there's no image in the mirror when you stand in front of it.
I always like your comments Evel. Keep up the good work.
Evel what kind of crap is that? Are you and abuser?
Way to go Rachel, cast a dark shadow over all jews. You won't see the Israelis behaving like a Hollywood Jew.
I'm sorry Rachel, what? Oh! You said you were an idiot. I get it now.
Please let us know how those two "facts" even go together. Are you implying that Jewish = pedophile? That is so strange.
Rachel were your parents brother and sister or something? Or maybe you are just a bigoted ash h0le. Oh, wait, yeah it's the second one.
so what else is new they run the media too. I won't paint them all w the same brush, but there does seem to be a trend here.
Interesting? Joel Schumacher also directed The Client staring Brad Renfro. He started drinking and having problems after and his life ended in 2008.
Just googled the guy. He honestly looks like a pedophile.
I've heard that name brought up before about that director. Pervert.
How very Nancy Grace of you. Convicting the guy without a trial.
Wow! So that is all it takes to start a rumor? Like the other guy said; "how very Nancy Grace of you."
No kidding. After all, who's idea was the bathtub scene in Lost Boys?
JEWS and child molesters? Yeah, tell it to the priests, they'd love you for helping with the diversion tactics :) Here's some great advice for you: Have a son, send him to the church, shoot yourself in the head.
What are you trying to say? Are you a pedophile?
WHAT A RAT YOU ARE!!!!!
Are you a retard?
You need help man.
Feldman wasn't in any MJ videos.
own up corey he had u 2 no douth that little blonde haired kid (home alone) jackson had him not a douth how many more corey if u were with him well u were had 2 become a man speaK UP
So while you are painting Jews with your big ignorant brush stroke, care to tell me how the catholic church didn't effectively create and protect the largest organized elite and sheltered worldwide group of pedophiles in modern history? The stupidity and under education of America is displayed ad nauseum on these blogs. People of power whether of the religious, political, or wealth variety, often abuse it. This knows no cultural or religious boundaries. Keep your racism and ignorance to yourselves or perhaps try gaining an education before you open your mouths in public.
I believe you are right; Feldman was not in a video. I was thinking of some of the other kids around Jackson; Wade Robson the choreographer, and Macaulay Culkin; and maybe Brett Barnes and Frank and Eddie Cascio.
Your a little pee-wee pedophile!
When will we heed the lessons of Sodom and Gomorrah?
Although It's not just a Jewish problem, and is not limited by religion. You forgot one... nope two. Neil Goldshmidt and his brother Stephen Goldshmidt.
Or have a son, don't send him to church, and let him shoot someone in the head. Life can easily work that way, too.
I looked on the internet to find when Joel Schumacher died, and as of 2010 he was still alive. There is not one article about his death. He definitely did not die in 2008.
Wasn't the only child who brought MJ to court on child molestation charges proven to be one of a family of grifters who had targeted other celebrities before? Amazing how a family of grifters can ruin someone's life.
Yes. The mother's crackpot testimony and their history of defrauding other celebrities (and stores) sank the case and left Tom Sneddon looking the fool.
Ol' Tommy Gun never DID get MJ. He was a Smooth Criminal.
"Infested"? Hate much, Aletheya? And yet you liberals constantly preach love. Hypocrisy at it's finest.
Brad Renfro died in 2008 of a drug OD, I believe.
Do the right thing Corey. Tell who did this to you. You are an adult now not a child. You saying you wont let let your child in this industrie does not keep you from being responsible for other children that this might be happening to.
Your parents are sappose to protect you and I 'm sorry they did not. Now you are an adult what is your responsibilty?
Man up! Stop blamming and start doing!
Corey told me who it was. It was actually 2 people. Michael Jackson. Stephen Spielberg. Shame on both of them!
